Kassiopi Holidays

GENERAL

The Co-operative Travel would like to introduce you to Kassiopi, a lively resort in north-eastern Corfu where many of the trappings of modern-day tourism are still kept at arm's length.

Like so many resorts, its origins are as a fishing port, but unlike so many, the industry is still visible and playing an important role in the local economy.

A busy harbour and town centre contrast with the peace and tranquility just a short walk away around the headland.

A Kassiopi package holiday or all-inclusive holiday is an ideal way to explore the whole island of Corfu, with regular boat and coach excursions being organised.

Accommodation in the town centre is largely apartments, with larger villas scattered around the outskirts.

The harbour area is still a natural focal point, and its numerous bars are ideal for sitting outside and watching the world go by.

Beach holidays to Kassiopi

The main, blue flag status beach is located away from the main road, and is flat, making it child-friendly. But beware of the afternoon northerly winds, which can soon whip up waves which will blow away the unwary who have ventured out to sea on their lilos.

There are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for hire on all of the beaches in Kassiopi.

On a hillside overlooking the harbour is Kassiopi Castle. Begun by the Romans, it was sadly almost completely demolished in the 14th century. The few remains are, however, Byzantine.

Boat trips leave Kassiopi harbour daily to Corfu town and other areas of interest on the island.

Kassiopi's many shops include bakeries, supermarkets, tourist shops selling leather goods, gifts and souvenirs, clothes shops, some good lace and linen shops, ceramics, jewellery, and English newspapers. As a concession to modern communications, you'll also find two internet cafes.
