Kassiopi is a village in the northeast part of Corfu
, 35 km from the capital and overlooking the shores of Albania. It used to be a small fishing village but tourism has developed and made it a bustling place with night life in the summer. On a hilltop above the harbor rise the remains of an old castle from 14 century, called Kassiopi castle. Some parts of it are well preserved, others reconstructed, and the castle is open to visitors.
All restaurants, cafes and bars can be found around the port and the street which leads to it. Next to the port there is a small square with benches which allow you to sit and watch the fishing boats and cruise boats leaving and arriving. The resort also has a 24-hour medical center, a few big supermarkets, bakeries, ATMs, souvenir shops and a playground. Accommodation is provided in small hotels, studios to rent and villas.
Kassiopi is located on a small peninsula and has a few beaches in small coves. At the harbor there is no beach area but if you follow the coastal road which encircles the peninsula, you will reach the lovely beaches of Bataria
, with crystal clear blue water and rocks. Continuing further on the road you will find Kalamionas
, the longest of all Kassiopi beaches. All beaches are pebbly so it will be best to take advantage of the sunbeds. For those who prefer quieter beaches, 1 km east and west of Kassiopi there are the beaches of Kogevinas and Imerolia
with its emerald water is close to Kogevinas, and the sandy and very shallow Apraos
beach is within 5 km drive to the north.
