Holidays in
Kanoni

A chilled, cultural Greek resort

Once the capital and main port of Corfu, cosmopolitan Kanoni combines culture with a naturally rugged landscape. Its name comes from the cannons that used to protect the city near the lagoon’s entrance and, while they’re no longer active, there’s plenty to see and do here. The steep and rugged coastline defines Kanoni – there are two rocky beaches with sunbeds, parasols and plenty of privacy.

This tranquil resort has preserved its laid-back vibe, making Kanoni holidays perfect for those looking for a restful break. Wake up each morning and let your day be dictated by the rhythm of the waves, the heat of the sun and where you fancy heading for lunch. Although you won’t need to worry about that – Kanoni holidays offer fantastic Greek tavernas where you can feast on grilled, fresh-out-of-the-ocean octopus and drink chilled ouzo out in the sunshine.

Your Kanoni questions, answered

Kanoni is the perfect holiday option for romantic couples and families with older children who are looking for a laid-back break in the Greek sunshine.

Kanoni is slightly more upscale than other resorts in Corfu and you’ll find people make an effort to dress well. That means no bathing suits or flip-flops in restaurants.

If there was ever a time to read Homer’s ancient epic poem ‘The Odyssey’, it’s in Kanoni. Work your way through it while gazing at picturesque Mouse Island.

Best things to do in Kanoni

Sail to Mouse Island

Five minutes by boat from Kanoni is this legendary little island (don’t worry, it’s rodent-free) where, according to legend, Ulysses’ ship was turned to stone.

Visit an ancient church

Walk along the lengthy causeway connecting Kanoni to the beautiful 17th-century Panagia Vlacherna church. Inside you’ll find well-preserved frescoes and a hand-carved, wooden iconostasis.

Try snorkelling

Thanks to its rocky outcrops, the beaches around Kanoni are teeming with colourful marine life. Grab a mask and head underwater to see for yourself.
