Information about Nissaki - Corfu


Nissaki is on the north-east coast of Corfu, 14 miles north of the capital, Corfu Town (Kerkyra) and the airport, with views across the sea to Albania and across the bay to enticing Corfu Town. Nissaki appeals to those looking for a small and relatively quiet resort in a beautiful setting. It is set on the steep pine and olive grove-covered foothills of Corfu’s highest peak, Mount Pantokrator. The resort is protected from the noise and bustle of some of its famously lively and more downmarket neighbours. Nissaki is ideal for couples and families looking for an attractive, traditional small resort in which to relax; a place where not everything is given over to tourism. It has a few tavernas and local shops and the nightlife is very modest in comparison with its neighbour Barbati, and a world away from the full-on partying youth resort of Ipsos just a few miles down the coast.


Nissaki beach, or rather beaches, are small coves of sparkling white shingle, excellent for scuba-diving, with clean clear water ideal for swimmers. A favourite beach is at Skinos, several hundred metres further along the coast. Other beaches are away from the road and are blessed with both sloping and shallow areas for bathing, a water sport jetty and boats for hire. Walkers and bathers enjoy their holidays for its protected and secluded position and its relatively unspoilt romantic feel despite its reputation for beauty and its popularity as a day trip destination for boats and yachts. A little effort on the coast path is rewarded with the discovery of further secluded rocky coves. Hiring boats is a popular holiday activity, with beautiful Agni Bay a favourite destination.


The village of Nissaki is strung out along the coast road with several bus stops for the Corfu/Kassiopi bus. The village has numerous tavernas, supermarkets, several tourist shops and car/bike hire.  All your daily requirements  are readily available and there really is no need to leave the village if for any reason you want to stay put.
Access to the smaller beaches is by foot, look for the numerous footpath signs in Greek and English.  Vehicular access to Nissaki's main beach is via the beach road at the southern end of the village. Water taxis arrive and depart from the jetty next to Mitsos taverna and the harbour throughout the day.  Try sitting with a drink, watching the coming and going.  Is there anything more relaxing?
Nissaki's  harbour was completed in  2004. Nissaki can now offer a safe and spacious mooring for your boat. The concerns about the harbour spoiling the beauty of the area have proved unfounded. The harbour wall is faced with local rock and will enhance the marine life environment
