Nestled amongst the picturesque coves of the North East coast of Corfu lies the village of Nissaki. This is the traditional Corfu that we all remember and adore. Originally meaning ‘little island’ Nissaki was once a small rocky island. Local stonecutters used the Island to prepare stone brought by boat for use elsewhere on the island. Overtime the resulting stone waste produced allowed for the small island to be joined to the mainland and a local taverna now stands on the original site. The village hamlet of Nissaki is slightly further around the main road and has a church & school at its centre and overlooks the original small island site. Further round the coast the blue flag beaches of Kaminaki and Krouzeri make up the final stretches of Nissaki. Part of the Corfu trail runs through the heart of Nissaki. The main trail winds its way directly along the coast here and will take you further along the coast from where the beautiful bays of Agni and Kalami can be reached. Various paths & trails lead off from the main path and into the hills and olive groves behind Nissaki.
My wife and I have settled in the village and have dedicated this page as a one stop hub of information for the local area. (most of the information you would need is on the map link below) If there is anything that you feel needs to be added to the map or page please let us know. We hope you find it useful. Please let us know if you do.
I have created an interactive map of the local area using Google Maps to help Visitors, walkers and tourists navigate around the village, to locate shops, Tavernas and places of interest. (the map is continually updated) View Interactive map
Local Bus Timetables
The Green buses are the ones that run through Nissaki from Corfu Town and continue to Kassiopi and vice versa. The Blue buses run a more local service from Corfu town and reach as far as Ipsos. There are numerous bus stops through the Village. (If there is only a bus stop on one side of the road – the bus going in the other direction will stop opposite) Green Bus Timetable Blue Bus Timetable
Kaminaki Beach is a small resort with a couple of tavernas and several apartments and villas. The small beach cove is made up of pebbles and here you can hire boats. The cove is relatively quiet and a wonderful place to swim and relax. To the left of the beach is a costal path that runs to the neighbouring Krouzeri beach.
Krouzeri Beach is longer than its neighbours and is made up of Pebbles and shingle. The hotel Nissaki beach can be found at the far end and non-residents are welcome to use the facilities. There are several tavernas and apartments along the beach. Krouzeri is a lovely beach it is a popular stop for boat trips and the swimming and snorkelling is extremely good. There are also water sports and diving facilities to be found along the beach. At the far end of the beach you will find a coastal path that makes up part of the Corfu trail. The path is located at the far end of the hotel and you have to walk through the hotel to reach it. The path takes you to the next bay round which is Agni, however there has been some building work along this path with a number of villas being built. The path has been moved as new villas are built but is clearly marked by red paint along the way and you will have to walk across a villa complex to continue on the path.
