is a charming town situated at a small peninsula on the north-east corner of the island of Corfu, 36 km north of Corfu Town and Corfu airport. The resort is the largest village in the northeast of the island and is unique among Corfu’s resorts in having both a very picturesque setting and a fair amount of history.
A holiday in Kassiopi has the magnificent backdrop of Mount Pantokrator and hills covered with olive groves, vines and citrus plantations. This resort is a colorful place reached by picturesque coast roads. It also provides views out to sea to the Albanian coast and shares the same northern coastline as Sidari, Roda and Acharavi. It is an attractive resort with traditional narrow streets and overlooked by the ruins of an ancient castle. Once a quite fishing village, the resort has been transformed into a popular holiday destination.
Kassiopi harbour with its little square is today the focal point of the town's social life by day and a pretty trendy place by night on the contrary has plenty of quieter calmer bars and restaurants, the latter a mix of tourist and traditional, with particularly good fresh fish thanks to local fishermen.
Although its big history, Kassiopi combines also a wide range of modern facilities such as waterskiing and paragliding, as well as a diving centre, tennis courts and motor boat hire. Moreover there is no shortage of land based sports in Kassiopi. Mountain biking, horse riding and golf are just a few of the activities available.
Furthermore it is worth visiting the church of Panagia Kassiopi_tissa, which possibly has been built on the place of an ancient temple dedicated to Zeus Kassius. You will also see the ruins of the Byzantine castle that used to protect the town and its port and was guarding the sea route from Corfu to the opposite coast.
