Kassiopi is a picturesque beach resort offering lots of tourist appeal and sits on the north east coast of Corfu with a magnificent backdrop of Mount Pantokrator, soft shingle sands and clear waters. This part of Corfu is more rugged and less commercial than other areas, appealing to people wanting an authentic taste of Corfu. Kassiopi is still popular with young visitors, teenagers and groups, with its lively bar culture and relaxing beaches, yet still retains its fishing village past and importance in ancient history. Visit the 13th century Byzantine castle and 16th century church or head to the pretty harbour, with its little square; the focal point of the town’s social life by day and still home to the local fisherman, giving the resort plenty of character and colour. The harbour is also a trendy hot spot by night with plentiful bars and restaurants offering a lively yet relaxed atmosphere waiting to be discovered. Swimming and water sports can be enjoyed at the fantastic beaches, where most are pebbly yet charmingly small and secluded. Explore the Kassiopi coast by boat, go pony trekking, hire bikes and mopeds, or walk along the many lanes leading into the beautiful surroundings. Panoramic views can be admired at Mount Pandokrator. Kassiopi offers a range of interesting excursions and activities, including boat and road connections to Corfu Town and excursions to Dassia, Nissaki and lively Sidari and Ipsos.
