Until recently Kassiopi was known as a traditional fishing village with a picturesque harbor. Kassiopi is still a working fishing port, so you can sit and watch the boats coming in with the daily catch. The village of Kassiopi lies 38 kilometres north of Corfu Town, opposite the Albanian coastline. The beaches are very small and pebbled, and are hidden away around the headland in stunning secluded spots, such as Bataria Beach.
There are two larger beaches further north – Kalamionas and Imerolia offering various water sports on offer. The village has been developed to a very popular tourist resort, a pretty trendy place with many bars, tavernas, restaurants with particularly fresh fish thanks to fishermen, gift shops, supermarkets and A.T.M. machines. Being a lively resort, it is for those who are looking for a bit of life. This part of the typical Greek daytime resort turns into a trendy music center after dark. Teenagers, families, young couples and groups of friends who want life but also to enjoy the beauty of the North East of the island, are welcomed in Kassiopi.
