Kontokali Corfu travel guide

Kontokali Bay on Corfu is a relatively quiet village resort with a decent selection of shops, tavernas and bars that lies on the east coast of Corfu, just four miles north-west of Corfu Town.

The resort is located along a narrow road that runs parallel to the main road in a flat coastal area close to Gouvia.

Kontokali has a fine local church and the remains of a castle. The resort is however for its fish tavernas and some even have a 'dedicated' fisherman and a menu that reflects the latest catch.

For shopping, most head for the neighouring resort at Gouvia. There are big supermarkets on the main road to Gouvia where visitors can stock up on cheaper provisions.

Kontokali might appeal to families not requiring too much in the way of entertainment as options here are modest. Many Kontokali visitors will head off at night to the resort nearby Gouvia for more rowdy nightlife.

Kontokali beach is clean - a mix of sand and fine shingle with shallow water and a gentle slope into the sea so this is a fine beach for families with young children.

The Kontokali Beach Hotel covers much of the beach with rows of sunbeds and staff keep the beach clean There is a second, smaller beach area to the north that is very popular with locals.

Kontokali Bay is also popular with boat owners thanks to the nearby yacht marina which, along with the Kontokali Beach Hotel, is the focal point of the resort.

There is a regular bus from Corfu Town that stops on the main road and it is just a 10 minute walk down the lane to reach the beach at Kontokali Bay.
