Nissaki Travel Guide

Nissaki is a small village on the northeast coast of Corfu, in Greece, around 13 miles (20km) from the airport. Situated among the pretty coves beneath the hills of Mount Pantocrator, Corfu's highest mountain, it's a quiet resort that is ideal for family holidays or couples seeking a peaceful Greek island holiday. There is a small but popular horseshoe-shaped beach, with fine pebbles and clear water that offers excellent swimming and snorkelling.
Nissaki has a couple of gift shops and four supermarkets. There is a wider choice of shopping at the nearby resorts of Kassiopi or Ipsos which are only a short bus trip away.
Nissaki has a handful of great family-run restaurants, which serve tasty local dishes with good service and a warm welcome.
There are a few tavernas within the village, and those wanting a livelier evening can head to the larger resorts of Kassiopi or Ipsos, which are a few miles along the coast.
Various watersports are on offer by the beach including water skiing, wakeboarding, banana rides and parasailing. It is also possible to hire a boat to explore the many bays between Kassiopi and Nissaki, which offer glorious snorkelling opportunities. There are marvellous walks in the hills above Nissaki, with deserted villages, and wonderful views that extend right across to Albania.
People who are after a livelier nightlife might prefer one of the larger resorts in Corfu.
