Kassiopi is a lovely village set around a harbour, it gives you the best of both worlds with quiet tavernas and bars along with lively bars should you prefer to have a bit of fun for the night. Very relaxing and friendly. You can sit with a drink overlooking the pretty lit up harbour or even right at the side of the water or alternatively walk up the side streets where there is an array of bars and tavernas, along with a few shops and a lovely fresh bakery. You can dance the night away at the Harbour bar or club or there are the typical quiz an karaoke for the true brits should you so require.
We have been to corfu before and stayed elsewhere on the island and I wasn’t too bothered on going back but Kassiopi has won me over and as soon as came home started looking for flights & accommodation for next year!
The only down side is no sandy beach but if you have accommodation with a pool or a car you can soon solve that one. There are shingle coves and pebbly beaches around the coast of Kassiopi with sunbeds and clear waters. The sandy beaches are further up the coast one not too far up is Kalami I think as there are several similar names but it is just a little way up and you turn off and drive down a track off the main road up to Archaravi but don’t blink or you will miss it and you only see the beach from the road once past it. It is hard sand and very shallow water for quite a way out – lovely bay.
If you go to Kassiopi you must go to the Trilogia Restaurant, it is a short walk just along the road, past the end of the harbour past the wave and limani bar keep going it appears as though walking to no where at first but go round next bend or so and you will see a cafe bar on the corner and then the Trilogia restaurant is after this. It has seats in the restaurant or right on the front to see the sunset they also have seats if you just want a drink. Don’t pass up on the food though as it is magnificent along with the views and the friendly service. Once you have been you will be smitten with it and no doubt return. It is one of those well kept secrets as only a small sign near the harbour but still gets busy.
If we return to Kassiopi it will be the first place we visit.
