In Greek the word ‘agni’ means ‘pure’ and this beautiful bay in the heart of Corfu on the north east coastline is pure Greece, pure relaxation and beauty! Agni is just 27 kilometres from Corfu airport, tucked in between Nissaki to the south and Kalami to the north, looking across the channel east to nearby Albania.
A protected deep bay with a very pretty pebble and shingle beach is home to three of the most talked about restaurants in Corfu. Each restaurant has its own jetty and a good number of visitors arrive by boat and moor up (this alone gives hours of entertainment to diners in the beachside tavernas) whilst the remainder reach this hidden spot by a narrow downhill road from the main coastal road. During the peak summer months Agni Bay is a hub of activity; in the local restaurants you’ll need to book to get a good table to enjoy the excellent food for which it is so rightly renowned – but also to rub shoulders with some very distinguished guests. In the early and late summer months it is a peaceful haven.
From Agni you can walk along the coast past Yaliskari beach to Kalami to enjoy a change of scenery. Excellent water sports are provided here along with a larger choice of shops and restaurants. The ideal mode of transport in this area is the self-drive motor boat which gives you the freedom to get to other bays easily and to do your super market shopping by boat!
