Things to do in Kassiopi
Few locations in Greece can rival Kassiopi in terms of beauty or history. It is said that the town was founded during the reign of King Pyrrhus of Epirus in the 3rd century BC to serve as a supply post during the war with Rome. It is a testament to the beauty of Kassiopi that following the Roman conquest in 230BC, it was visited by many Emperors, including Nero, who visited a temple here. When it comes to the top attractions here, one of the best is Kassiopi Castle, a majestic fortress that overlooks the village and is one of three Byzantine fortifications that protected Crete. The remains are considered one of the most fascinating architectural sites in the Ionian Islands.
Along with the castle, Kassiopi is also home to the Church of Panaghia. This church features a cross within a square and has a complex four-column structure, domed chapel and many beautiful paintings inside. Other things to do in Kassiopi include visiting the many bars and clubs that are dotted across the island, exploring the local gift shops for souvenirs and trying your hand at some adventurous water sports.
The focus of most holidays in Kassiopi is the excellent selection of beaches. Bataria Beach is often the first beach that visitors come across as they make their way around the resort from the centre. This beach has a small stretch of soft, warm sands that gently slope into the clear waters, making this an ideal place for kids to splash about and for inexperienced swimmers to hone their skills. If you venture a little further afield you will find Pipitos Beach, which requires a bit of climbing to get good views of the rugged rocky terrain beneath the waves. If you’re looking for nothing but the best Blue Flag status beaches, Kassiopi has a good range including Avlaki, Gimari, Kalami, Kerasia and Nisaki beaches. All in all, Kassiopi is a wonderful choice of holiday destination in Greece for a sun, sea and sand holiday with plenty of relaxation. Whether you’re visiting as a couple or with the whole family, there are beaches to suit all kinds of activity from swimming to snorkelling.
