Things To Do….In Corfu! – Kassiopi



Kassiopi is a picturesque village situated in the small peninsula on the North-Eastern corner of Corfu opposite the Albanian coastline with just 2km separating them at the closest  point. Located 36 km North of Corfu Town it is the largest resort in the North East of the island. The horse shoe harbour is the best known focal point at the centre of Kassiopi that inhabits most of social life of the village day & night. It is the perfect spot to relax, drink & dine while watching the boats come in and out.


The village is overlooked by the ruins of the Byzantine castle high up on the hill that was used to protect the town and it’s port.
