Arriving 16th September for a week with the family to Yaliskari. The 2 kids...well can you still call them kids at 21 and 29.lol...want to do a night in Kavos, rather them than me.Any idea best way to get there and back? I'm assuming taxi is best. How much would it cost roughly...and any recommendations on taxi firms.

I had a similar situation a couple of years ago but Kavos is at the far southern tip of the island and although I cannot remember the cost of taxis it was way way too much.  They could have a good night out in Kassiopi, not Kavos I know, but livelier than Kalami.

Or Ipsos maybe. You will drive through Ipsos on the way to Kalami from the airport so they could check out the nightclubs then.
If they are set on Kavos why not book them somewhere to stay overnight. Although they would not use it much they could then possibly catch a bus into Corfu Town and then out again towards Kalami.

Hello Stevetheaagle
 
Taxi from the airport to Kalami is around €55 one way, Kalami to Kavos is at least double the distance so you're probably taking €100 or more each way.   As Sue says, booking accommodation for 1 night is probably the way to go, the tourist offices in Kalami may be able to help with that.
 
Even with Sidari or Ipsos, an overnight stay will probably be cheaper than taxi there and back. 
 
Deedee Big smile
Are we there yet?
We've been and come back but we're going again.

Looks like Sidari is the best bet, or maybe Kassiopi. Any idea how busy they might be...obviously coming to the end of season might not be very lively. Anyway, I think we can convert them to a bit less touristy things to do while we are here.
My son has been obsessed with the weather forecast...he's convinced its going to rain all week. Has anyone got an idea of what the forecastt for 16th-23rd Septrmber is likely to be...??? He has seen websites that say rain...rain...and more rain...I've said we will know more on 15th.
Also, one last thing, on the drive from the airport to Yaliskari, is there a good supermarket to stock up on provisions(drink, fruit, meat, etc) and while we are there,what is the nearest good supermarket for daily needs?
...and any more tips would be welcome...
Many Thanks

The nearest good supermarket is Nikos which is just before Kassiopi on the right hand side (approx 10 minutess drive from Yaliskari) It is signposted so you should not miss it. Very good fresh meat, vegetables and a fab small deli counter with homemade humous, taramasalata & Tsatsiki. 
As for weather - do not take the forecasts to seriously as the weather tends to be very localised. Pack swimmies, waterproof and a smile and you will be fine. Any rain should be short-lived and followed by sunshine - Enjoy!!!

On your way from the airport, you will pass Lidl and a couple of other supermarkets on the outskirts of Corfu town.  They are on the opposite side of the road, so you will need to turn back on yourself.  There is also a supermarket in Ipsos which you will drive through.

Apart from the big supermarkets there are several good shops in Kalami if you are actually staying there, sorry I do not know where  Yaliskari is. These shops are good for fresh bread every morning and milk etc

As Werangels says there is the AB Supermarket in Ipsos, stocks pretty much everything over two floors and has a deli counter at the back of the ground floor. There is an alleyway to the left of the supermarket with parking at the back. There are numerous bars, tavernas and a couple of late night venues in Ipsos but things do start to close down quite early in the resort, we have been a few times at the end of September and watched things closing down as the locals realise not enough tourists to go around. Enjoy your holiday.

A & A (Adonis & Asonitis) is the one hotel type complex in Kalami. collection of pink buildings on the hillside with the reception on the right hand side as you enter the village - you will not miss it.
Cant help you with regard to cigarette prices but my initial reaction is 'why stress - you are on holiday. Do whatever is most convenient!!! Big smile

Hi,
Cigarettes are far cheaper in Corfu. 20 Superkings is €4.10.

A & A is the Asonitis Adonis apartments in Kalami.

Ciggies not for me, can't stand em, just for wife.
Think that's about it for info...sometimes it's nice to come across something by surprise. Anyway...here's looking forward to loads of chill out time,with a few taverna nights thrown in. Heard there are some good tavernas nearby....great seafood...and some ice cold beers and cocktails thrown in for good measure.
Many thanks for all your contributions
Regards
Steve

Yaliskari is between Agni and Kalami so fab location. For seafood suggest Toulas in Agni or there is a small  seafod Taverna in Kouloua (far end of Kalami but still walking distance) very popular with locals especially Sunday lunchtime/afternoon.

Hi Steve
Re ciggies, you can't buy them in UK Duty Free if you are travelling within the EU so you may be as well to get them in resort.  There is a ATM on the main road in Ipsos if you are passing through, also one at the SPAR supermarket also on main road through but that doesn't always work.
