In this resort in northeast Corfu, you’ll find five beautiful beaches to explore, a traditional fishing village, interesting archaeological sites and much more.

You can rent boats for day trips around Corfu, or stay in Kassiopi and just relax on the beach. In the evening, night owls will enjoy the surprisingly lively bars and pubs. Wherever you go, you’ll have a great time on holidays to Kassiopi. After all, if it’s good enough for Cleopatra…
Take a harbour stroll
Kassiopi’s harbour is overlooked by an impressive Byzantine fortress. Take a walk there around sunset, ice cream in hand, to enjoy the scenery at its best.
There are five great beaches in Kassiopi, all of different sizes. Bataria is the most popular one, as it’s a 10-minute walk from the centre of the village.
See some history
Visit the ruins of Kassiopi Castle – the views from the top ramparts of the coastline are sensational. The castle’s foundations were Roman, then it was built up by the Byzantines.
