A seaside village balanced between Gouvia and Corfu Town
Kontokali offers visitors a pretty little village with a sense of traditional Greek culture and easy access to the island’s capital, Corfu Town. Located on the east coast of Corfu island, it’s home to some wonderful golden sandy beaches where visitors can relax, unwind and just take in the views of the sparkling sea. In the town itself you’ll find a collection of local restaurants, luxury hotels, and bars, as well as plenty of opportunities to explore the island’s forest trails.
Head into Corfu Town, which is just a 10-minute drive away, and enjoy its upmarket beach bars, restaurants, and bars. There are watersports galore from the many beaches, as well as opportunities to simply relax on golden sands and take in the bright blues the Greek Islands are so well known for. Families should head to Aqualand Water Park where there are rides and slides for all ages, while history lovers can explore the ancient Greek ruins dotted throughout the island.
Kontokali is all about its beautiful beach, which is surrounded by lush green hills and the sparkling blue waters of the sea. Its quaint town is home to traditional buildings which date back to its history as a fishing village, with restaurants and tavernas offering the opportunity to try delicious local cuisine. The town’s coastal location means visitors can try fresh seafood and fish dishes, while there’s plenty of traditional moussaka, creamy dips, and more to try as well.
