Corfu travel Guide - Nissaki Beach

Nissaki means Little Island and hundreds of years ago that is what it was. On top of the island, now stands the Mitsos Taverna. In years past, the local people worked on this island, shaping stones and local rocks bought to them by boat. The stones were used for building. After many years, the chippings falling into sea formed a ramp and eventually joined the land. Now there is a narrow road that now runs between the old island where the Taverna stands and the mainland. Nissaki has a small beach and is  extremely pretty. The beach is a small horseshoe shape with fine pebbles, offering excellent swimming, although it can become a little crowded when daytrip boats arrive for lunch.

Nissaki should not be mixed up with the bay further along the coat where the hotel Nissaki Beach is situated, that is the Nissaki Beach Hotel at Krouzari beach - a resort. Nissaki though is just a small quiet coastal village.

Who is Nissaki For?

Teenage children may find it a little quiet - unless they love snorkeling. But, parents with a car will find that Kassiopi and Ipsos are only a short drive away - that is where they will find more life! Nissaki is quiet, making it an ideal place for young couples and families. Many visitors return to this part of the island year after year. Nissaki has its regulars!

Nissaki Beach

Corfu Travel Guide - Nissaki Village

Type: Fine Shingle with a few rocky out-crops.

Facilities: The nearby Taverna owners will usually allow you to use their toilets if you purchase a drink from them.

Child Suitability: Nissaki beach is away from the road and relatively safe for young children. The beach is small but there are rocky coves close by that you can head for. The water shelves off quite deep in parts but there are shallow areas.

Accessibility: There are a few steps down to the beach.

Cleanliness and Urchins: Nissaki beach is clean and well looked after. The water is clear as is the shingle. The rocky areas may need care as there may be urchins sea shoes are advised in these areas. The main beach has no urchins.

Places of Interest: Nissaki

Nissaki village is quite spread out and no real center. The main part of the village is towards the main coast road and the beach part which is just down a small lane. Above Nissaki, is a winding lane that goes up, high, through olive groves and eventually joins the mountain roads to the top of the island: Mount Pantokratoras On the way up, into the hills behind Nissaki, you can visit the lovely traditional Greek villages - you will need a car though.

Places Nearby to Nissaki

Barbati is a 20 min walk (via the road). Kaminaki is a 30 min walk (via road).

Corfu Travel Guide - Nissaki Village

There are also numerous little rocky coves nearby that can be found along the coastal footpath that are 'deserted' - well worth finding. 

Agni bay can be reached in about 30 minutes by small motor boat.
 

How to get there by Car

Follow the main coastal road from Corfu town towards the North East of the island. Pass through Ipsos and Barbati, Watch out for the narrow roads and bad bends as you wind around the hills of the North East of Corfu. Nissaki beach is signposted on your right, take this turning, go slowly as like most of the smaller bays in this part of the island the road down to it is steep and narrow. Go all the way to the bottom and there is limited parking on the roadside.
 

Every evening,  Taverna Agni offers a speed-boat taxi service to the Taverna: Taverna Agni
