High on a cliff, steeped in the fragrance of pine and lemon groves, cypress and sage, Aghios Gordios provides
a dramatic view of the bay. Agios Gordios is on the west coast of the island, near Corfu town. It nestles at the foot of a dramatic range of coastal hills covered in tall, elegant pine trees. Its bay sweeps gently between two large headlands and boasts a sand and pebble beach.

The long beach of Arillas, sandy and pebbly in parts, is situated in front of the small coastal tourist resort, at a distance of 38 kilometers northwestern to the town of Corfu. It is protected from both sides by two small peninsulas and it is extended at a length of more than 2 kilometers.
The sweep of Garitsa Bay leads you round to the village of Anemomylos and to the Kanoni peninsular. The eastern port of ancient Corcyra, the harbour of Alkinoos, was situated towards the southern end of the bay, but few remains can be seen today.
In Anemomylos you will find the church of St. Jason and Sosipater, the two Saints who brought Christianity to Corfu. Housed inside are many rare icons.
Nestled on Corfu's north-eastern tip, this is a gem of a place for summer holidays.

Holidays in Kassiopi aren't just pretty. They're pretty good at pleasing most of the people, most of the time.
Myrtiotissa beach is known for many years as Corfu's nudist paradise (although not so secret anymore) and is described by some enthusiasts as one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe.

The beach exerts its own unique charm, so if someone visits Myrtiotissa the first time he will certainly come back.
