It's also a fun place to be – especially when the locals throw an impromptu party or concert, for no apparent reason whatsoever...
Just 22 miles away from Corfu town and a 40-minute drive from Corfu Airport (CFU), Kassiopi holidays can surprise and delight even the most regular visitors. The resort, in the northern part of Corfu, runs between a large beach, a headland with small coves and the harbour. And while the beaches are mainly pebbled, there are still plenty of opportunities for relaxing by the calming waters or even giving yourself a thrill with a bit of water skiing.
Once playtime is over, there are dozens of inexpensive restaurants offering plenty of fine food to suit all tastes. Just make sure you try the local fish dishes – the catch of the day may even have been brought ashore before your very eyes.
And after dinner, why not pop in to some of Kassiopi's excellent bars, where you will almost certainly be encouraged to sample the proud owner's homemade wine. You never know, it might well give you the energy to slip on your dancing shoes and head for one of the resort's handful of nightclubs.
Kassiopi holidays are not all about partying, though. If nightclubs and bars are not your scene, the good news is there are also plenty of interesting shops open late into the night. Local artists often sell their wares here, while some of the lace crafts in the boutiques are renowned for their fine detail.

Add extra zing to your Kassiopi holiday by attending one of Corfu’s annual events – usually involving copious amounts of food and dancing!
Easter; March/April: Kassiopi, and indeed the whole of Corfu, loves to celebrate Easter. And while the weekend has a largely solemn and religious tone, the processions and parades are a delight to behold. There is also fun to be had later in the weekend as quiet worship turns into noisy family celebration on the Sunday and Monday.
Anniversary of the Union; May: Banquets and lots of public dancing are the order of the day as the locals toast the union of Corfu with Greece.
The Varkarola Festival; August: This fireworks fiesta takes place every year in nearby Palaiokastritsa. The day begins with boat races and dancing before a huge fireworks display to commemorate the defeat of the Turkish invasion in 1716. The finale comes as a boat is ceremoniously torched in the bay, accompanied by much cheering and clinking of glasses.
Young families, couples, older travellers and family groups all love Kassiopi for its lazy days and nights filled with just enough activity...
Relaxing: Stroll along the promenade that takes you to tiny, white-pebble bays, before wading into the inviting waters beyond.
Active types: Water skiing is actively encouraged – particularly for beginners. For those who prefer their sport at a slower pace, meanwhile, snorkelling and wreck diving are also on offer.
Grown-up families: Kassiopi may be sleepy by day, but the resort livens up later on. When night falls, the doors are thrown open at disco bars and family-run tavernas.
