Located 35 kilometres from Corfu town, this north-west village was one of the first fishing villages on the island.
Originally, there were only a few houses, a small church (which you can still visit) and harbour. The village was used by locals who would take boats onto the harbour and fish. The harbour is roughly a 10 minute walk from the centre and from it you can see the four Diapontia Islands and buy fresh fish from fishing boats as they come in early in the morning. The village has several restaurants and taverns as well as supermarkets, gift shops, jeweler shops, laundries, bakeries, bars and music-cafés. Agios Stefanos beach has remained relatively undeveloped, and is over a mile long with sunbeds and umbrellas and shallow water, perfect for children.
