Located on the northeastern side of Corfu, the resort village of Barbati is only about 20 kilometers from Corfu Town, tourists being able to get to Barbati in no more than 45 minutes, should they opt for the KTEL operated busses departing from the capital of the island. Tourists raving for bustle should keep in mind Barbati is highly unlikely to meet their expectations, since this resort is much more about family vacations and quiet cannier activities.
Yet, Barbati is not an inert destination, making available plenty of water sports facilities and various means of exploring the surrounding of the coastline, such as boat hiring. Indeed, no serious critic commentary can be made on the tourist performances of this resort since one must admit that there are holidaymakers who do prefer quieter places where to spend their vacations and who know how to appreciate a spot like Barbati. Its blue flagged beaches are more than a label in order to make Barbati advisable, and its shallow waters put forward yet another plus for its statute as family oriented resort.
The entire mild scenery of Barbati is towered from a distance by the imposing Mount Pantokrator which brings a dramatic touch to the overall dash of the resort. An even more secluded and quieter place nearby Barbati refers to Nissaki, which is only a couple of miles from Barbati, so hypersensitive tourists may also resort to this nearby village and to its adjoining beach in order to flee even farther away from what Corfu puts forward in terms of vacation buzz in Barbati. Peaceful and relaxing, Barbati substantiates the mild and cannier side of Corfu which, without a doubt, is worth exploring.
