Nissaki Corfu: Nissaki is among the most beautiful beaches in Corfu. A lovely sandy shore surrounded by rock formations is ideally located between the villages Barbati and Kassiopi, 22 km north of the Corfu town. This small beach that is situated well away from the road offers only a few tourist facilities.
Nissaki bay is protected from the strong winds, nevertheless the water becomes gradually deep. It is a great place for families while the soft rocks on either side are safe for children activities.
The water is so clean that allows you to see the rich marine life and the beautiful underwater landscape. Next to the beach is a small quaint port where fishing boats moor. The beach is surrounded by nice taverns serving fresh seafood and local delicacies.
Nestled amongst the picturesque coves of the North East coast of Corfu lies the village of Nissaki. This is the traditional Corfu that we all remember and adore. Originally meaning ‘little island’ Nissaki was once a small rocky island.
Local stonecutters used the Island to prepare stone brought by boat for use elsewhere on the island. Overtime the resulting stone waste produced allowed for the small island to be joined to the mainland and a local taverna now stands on the original site. The village hamlet of Nissaki is slightly further around the main road and has a church & school at its centre and overlooks the original small island site.
Further round the coast the blue flag beaches of Kaminaki and Krouzeri make up the final stretches of Nissaki. Part of the Corfu trail runs through the heart of Nissaki. The main trail winds its way directly along the coast here and will take you further along the coast from where the beautiful bays of Agni and Kalami can be reached. Various paths & trails lead off from the main path and into the hills and olive groves behind Nissaki.
