Agios Stefanos North East / Resorts

Just like its northwestern counterpart with which the northeastern Agios Stefanos shares the same name, this resort is one of the few spots in Corfu having managed to preserve a significant part of its Greek dash. It takes quite some ambition to get to the secluded village of Agios Stefanos, since the resort and the beach and such are a few kilometers from the main road heavily frequented by the green buses which depart from Corfu Town in order to transport tourists to the northern side of the island. However, arriving in Agios Stefanos by boat seems to be a much more pleasant and useful alternative many visitors opt for. The beach in Agios Stefanos is laced by several small coves which provide an excellent shelter for those in search of seclusion. Some sports facilities can be found on the beach, and sleeping and eating venues are discreet enough as not to disturb tourists’ joy of experiencing the genuine tranquility of this resort. As an additional feature, Agios Stefanos is the one spot in Corfu which is closest located to the Albanian coast, a 1 mile distance being interposed between the Greek island and the mainland Albania.
