Heading East from Roda is Corfu’s Northeast Coast. On the way is the bay of Agios Spiridon, fronting Antinioti Lagoon, a protected area with lots of wildlife and fish.
Heading East from Roda is Corfu’s Northeast Coast. On the way is the bay of Agios Spiridon, fronting Antinioti Lagoon, a protected area with lots of wildlife and fish. The beach is quite shallow for a long way and great for children. It is also possible to cross the little wooden bridge and walk around the lagoon. Or take a local horse riding tour.
Further along is Apraos, even shallower, with a couple of beachside tavernas and a view towards nearby Albania. Finally we reach Kassiopi, an old fishing village and harbour, now upgraded in status by the numerous big villas in the area. From here the coast changes and the beaches around here, like Avlaki, Kalami, and Agni are mostly pebbles with a little sand. Agni Bay is famous for its restaurants, for which booking well in advance is usually required. The coast here is a lot more mountainous and the winding roads allow for impressive views across to the East and mainland Greece.
As piracy stopped and living close to the sea became safer and more useful, the mountain villages, lost many of their inhabitants, becoming in some cases almost “ghost villages.
Yet further West, but essentially only about half an hour’s drive from Roda at most, are the seaside villages of Agios Stefanos and Arillas.
Further along the coast, there are great sandstone cliffs and the famous Cape Drastis.
A seaside resort, with lots of shops, from here you can access the famous Canal d’ Amour, a stunning rock formation and swimming area.
