Komeno Bay Corfu travel guide

Komeno Bay on Corfu has virtually been taken over by large hotel and apartment complexes that cover the area known as Cape Komeno.

The resort It sits on the northern side of the Gulf of Gouvia which lies on the eastern side of the island and has views south across the bay to Corfu Town, about 12 kilometres away.

Komeno has the small church of Ypapanti situated on a small islet that is linked to the island by a narrow strip of land.

Most of the Komeno headland is dominated by a huge hotel complex and there also are a large number of small villas and apartments dotted all around the large enclosed bay which has a trio of small, south-facing beaches.

The village of Komeno is located at the head of the cape and here can be found plenty of seafront tavernas, restaurants and snack bars. Inland from the village the whole area is pretty soundly packed with large luxury hotels.

Each small beach strip, and they are all very small, appears to have been commmandeered by hotel sunbeds and you will be lucky to find a sunbathing spot if you are not a guest at one of the hotels.

Some swimming is possible in the small coves that can be found all around the Komeno headland, north and south, but most swimming in this resort is done in hotel pools.

The Cape Komeno beaches are rock, stone and shingle and none are particularly attractive.
