Ipsos Corfu travel guide

Ipsos or Ypsos is one of the most developed resorts on Corfu, located just off the main highway north of Corfu Town and set against a dramatic mountain backdrop.

Ipsos has virtually merged with the neighbouring resort of Pyrgi and it is almost impossible to tell the two apart. A very busy road divides Ipsos beach from the resort and parking can be a real problem.

All the Ipsos restaurants and bars are on the other side of the road from the beach and getting to them means crossing the busy road.

Ipsos has countless late-night bars, discos and nightclubs and a large range of restaurants. There are also souvenir stalls, small shops and mini-markets.

Ipsos beach is flat and straight, a mix of shingle and sand. Steps lead down to the beach where there are sunbeds, showers and changing facilities but no toilets.

There is a wide range of watersports on the beach and two purpose-built jetties offer water skis, rings, banana rides and parasailing.

The village has a small children's play area and just behind the main road there is a go-cart track. Many of the Ipsos bars have pool tables and gaming machines.

Ipsos transport links are good with a bus service and plenty of taxis. There is a regular daily boat taxi to nearby Barbati beach. Boat rental is at Ipsos harbour and many boat cruises run from the main jetty.
