Does anyone know where this view is taken from.  It was a boat trip i took back in 1994/95.  Was looking through my old pictures of Corfu.  I think we got the bost from Kassioppi.

Think it is somewhere on the main road in Nissaki so a bit 'high up' to have arrived by boat- could you have got a bus?

We got a coach from Sidari to Kassiopi, then boat to this place and then we had to walk up a hill to the taverna.

To me it looks like you are up at Afionis at Dionysis Taverna. I think they are the Diapontia Islands in the background.

Pretty sure it is Corfu Town in the distance, Lazaretto nearer and the mainland in the background

That makes sense to me.  From the light it looks like you're facing south.

The only other places I can see terrain even vaguely lining up like that are (a) from Albania looking back or (b) the north-west islands, but then you'd go there straight from Sidari.

And there's some merit in taking a boat trip around the mountain and stopping at Nissaki, as it's supposed to have a good beach - at least for snorkelling and diving (so I've heard).

I think it is a cafe on the road between Ipsos and Nissaki. When you drive through Ipsos towards Nissaki, you go round a bend and start to climb the mountain road, there is a couple of cafes on the right hand side. We ate there a few years ago and it looks like the same view. It would fit with getting off a boat then walking up a hill.

Have a look at a Hotel I stayed at a few years ago called Nissaki Sea View, walking up from the beech there was 2 taverna's one either side of the small dead end road. There was a small little place that you could hire boats from. You walked around a little bend and there was another small Taverna on the left and Nissaki sea view on the right on a pretty steep hill. At the top of the hill there was a cross roads where if you turned right there was a lovely Taverna on the left and a supermarket on the right...
