Barbati

Barbati, Barbati, Corfu Resort Guide, Corfu Travel Guide

A mile long shingle beach is the outstanding asset that Barbati has to offer. A few Tavernas on the beach, a supermarket and the occasional gift shop. The main village of Barbati is located up on the main road - about a ten min walk. The resort of barbati runs either side of the main coastal road from Corfu town. The shops and Tavernas are positioned on the road side and smaller roads run steeply off to your right down to the beach. The beach is long and the views are stunning from here. To the right you look across to Corfu town. Spot the old town and the forts. You can see the cruise ships docked in the port, just to the right of the main town. On the left the view is of the Albanian coast line where it meets with the Greek mainland. On a clear day it is stunning.

Who is the Resort for

Barbati is the ideal family resort, for those looking for some life but also some peace and quiet. The beach front tends to be quieter and more relaxing in the evenings, whereas the bars up on the main road are busier and more lively. The main road is quite a hike up from the beach. The Pantokrator hotel offers a much needed courtesy bus service up and down the hill.

Accessibility

The road down to the beach is steep but when there it is totally flat.

Cleanliness and Urchins

Being a blue flag beach Barbati is kept clean and the water is very clear. There are no urchins in the main part of the beach although if you swim around the rocky areas either side be careful.

Places of Interest

There are the remains of an ancient church St Nikolas right on the beach at Barbati, although it is closed it is worth a look as it is very pretty and being right on the beach it is unusual. There are many traditional older villages in the hills behind the resort which are worth visiting.

Places Nearby

Ipsos is a 20 min walk - but a regular boat service operates for a small charge. Nissaki in the other direction is also about 20 mins - via the main road - as it does not have a footpath.

Agni Bay

Agni Bay: In Greek Agni means un-spoilt and this describes Agni perfectly - just three Tavernas (each with their own jetty for mooring up to) and a sprinkle of local buildings. The bay is reached mainly by rented motor boats, although recently there is now a narrow road down into the bay. Each evening we offer a 'Speed Boat' taxi service, from surrounding bays to Taverna Agni. The above video shows the exciting experience.

Nissaki

Nissaki Corfu Agni Travel

Nissaki is a small pretty resort with a horseshoe-shaped beach, offering excellent swimming and water sports. There are several tavernas specialising in local cuisine. A small harbour shelters the many little fishing boats that are moored there and there is a jetty/collection point for the Taverna Agni water taxi which offers an evening service to Taverna Agni and a twice-weekly trip to Corfu Town

Krouzeri Beach

Kalami Corfu Agni Travel

Krouzeri has a long beach (sandy and pebbles) offering safe swimming, water sports and diving. Beachside tavernas provide welcome refreshments to those enjoying the beach and excellent snorkelling. The nearby Nissaki Beach Hotel offers a swimming pool which is open to non-residents, a restaurant and bar and, during the evening a low-key disco. There is a jetty/collection point for the water taxis which operate in the area.

Kalami

Kalami Corfu Agni Travel

Kalami: The bay of Kalami nestles below the hills of the North East Corfu and is famous for both its beautiful beach, and Lawrence Durrell's 'White House'. A popular destination for couples, Kalami is also ideal for a family holiday with tavernas, safe swimming, water sports and boat hire - everyone is catered for!


How to get there by Car

Take the main coastal road from Corfu town, following the signs to Kassiopi. Pass through Ipsos. The road then starts to climb, as you start to come back down the hill the other side there are two very bad bends! Be careful as they double back on themselves!! Just after these bends you are in Barbati you will see the sign. Follow the signs on your right to Taverna Akti Barbati this will take you to the beach. There is plenty of parking.
