Proudly sitting on the north east coast of Corfu, the picturesque beach resort of Kassiopi looks forward to spoiling you with soft shingle sands and crystal clear waters.
Kassiopi holidays transport you to a peaceful village dating back from Roman times, where you can walk and swim in the footsteps and splashes of ancient folk as you embrace the gorgeous strip of beaches.
The sandy expanses of Corfu are amongst the most sought-after attractions in Greece, and the three glorious coastal gems spread around this particular village are no exception – offering a chance to relax on the sand, explore the world beneath the waves or indulge in some thrilling water sports during your holidays in Kassiopi.
Life’s a Beach on your Kassiopi Holiday
The emphasis of most Kassiopi holidays is certainly centred round the beach. Holidaymakers will have a choice of three fantastic beaches around the village, all offering their own unique attractions.
Bataria Beach is naturally the first beach you’ll encounter as you venture from the centre of the resort. This small strip of soft sand gently shelves into the crystal clear water and provides an ideal setting for kids to splash around in. Further, afield you’ll find Pipitos Beach, and although access to the beach requires a little climbing, it is well worth it for the dramatic, rocky terrain that protrudes from the lapping waves. Kanoni Beach is ideal for those hoping to explore what Kassiopi has to offer below the surface, with many companies allowing exploration into a captivating underwater world.
The village can easily be recognised as a specialist resort for holidaymakers seeking sun, relaxation and a slight dose of luxury, whether visiting in a family or as a couple. There are many comfortable hotels and apartments offering stunning ocean views and equally impressive service to their guests, all in reach of charming cafes and restaurants, as well as bustling shops.
