Shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, pools, a glorious beach you name it, we’ve got it. You can even say “I do” here! But Stefanos didn’t always look this way. If we went back only 50 years there would be none of the facilities that you see here today.

The original Agios Stefanos consisted of a few houses, a small church and a harbor. Agios Stefanos was originally a small fishing village where locals would take their boats out from the harbor and literally fish for their supper.

This is still true of some locals today, the old harbor is still visible but a new working harbor was built to accommodate modern times. Agios Stefanos is bustling with tourists during the summer months, but in the winter the locals get to enjoy their picturesque surroundings resting and preparing for the following season.

Most local people live in neighboring Avliotes and years ago this was the main town. Stefanos was just a small fishing village and the locals from Avliotes would come and use Agios Stefanos beach as their own.

Agios Stefanos or San Stefanos beach is a great sandy beach on the north west of Corfu. The beach is several kilometers long and very wide. Modern beach facilities such as sunbeds, umbrellas and showers are available on the south part of the beach which is accessible by the road, but the further you walk toward the north of the beach, the less people you meet. At the very northern tip of the beach you can swim naked if you like, flanked by high cliffs creating a wonderful feeling of privacy.
