No we were traveling around for the day, we were staying in Paleo, went to Roda to visit a friend that's working there for the summer.

Hi guys
Just wanted to let you all know that we stopped off in Kass for a few hours last week on our little scooter, really liked it! Parked up at the end of the big beach. Walked into the village, got a big fat ice cream which we half ate half dribbled on the floor at the harbour then walked the headland back to our bike, had a nice cold beer at a small café bar just there on the beach (Had a funky seashell and drift wood covered divider to the loo's) then we headed off to Roda.
Thought it was a lovely place and it's at the top of our list for September hols.

Our first Corfu visit was to Imerolia and we have been back at least twice a year since (to Kassiopi)

Friends of ours  (only ever meet up in Corfu in September) used to love Paxos. One year they were unable to get flights or accommodation they wanted (forget which) and had 3 days to sort something. They are also extremely fussy and wanted somewhere that reminded them of Paxos. They researched thoroughly and eventually decided on Imerolia (short walk outside Kassiopi) ... they couldn't have been happier and have been back every September (for a month at a time) since. 

As for us - I picked Imerolia from a Direct Greece brochure back in 1998 and couldn't believe my luck! Been back so many times since.

The sea at Kalamaki Beach/Sandy Beach is warm crystal clear and very shallow.
Keep taking your, take a holiday in kassiopi pills.

Hi Nardine
 
I would suggest that the water in Lakka bay is a little warmer than you will find off the coast of Corfu.  This being due to the fact that Lakka is both virtually enclosed and also quite shallow.
 
That said, the east coast of Corfu is warmer than the west (for many of the same reasons).  Also, the water on the east coast tends to be clearer - and so better for snorkelling - as there is little sand.
 
Enjoy!
Martyn

JacquieF, the water sounds like it is on Paxos.
I'd never swam in the sea til we went there a couple of years ago.
We've now booked Paleo for June but I'm still on the look out for a late September holiday, it's going to be a toss up between Kassiopi & Paxos.

The joy of Kassiopi is that there are one or two noisier bars (quiz/karaoke) if that is what you want - we don't so we don't go in. It certainly doesn't feel like a 'strip'. There are wonderful tavernas, cocktail bars overlooking the harbour, stunning beaches, trips available if you want them, motor boats to hire, views to die for and the clearest water I have ever encountered in Europe . The people are incredibly friendly and welcoming and I never feel a hint of worry about my teenage girls doing their own thing. Wherever you end up, enjoy x

I found June in Paxos a little bit hotter during the day but I really noticed it at night the most, we were in Paleo last September and it was scorchio during the day, didn't see one cloud or one drop of rain the whole week.
Being a ginge I do wilt a bit in the very hot weather so could never go July or August.

I dread to think how hot it would be in July and August. Been there in May before now and it was schorching. So much so I had to sit in the shade, which is so unlike me as I do like the sunshine. But when it starts biting then it's either the shade or the pool. My husband knows when it gets too hot for me when I spend the best part of the day in the pool and end up looking all prune like. Ha Ha

We always go May and & September as it is not too hot and not too busy either. This year we are going June and will see if there is a difference.

There are plenty of places where you can just sit and chill and not be bothered by either large t.v.'s or kareoke.

Have a look on Travel Republic as they do what looks really good packages.  You can also choose a number of local airports which saves having to search time and time again.  If you have any accommodation queries I am sure the helpful, knowledgeable people on here will help, but beware they all have their favorites, so some bias maybe shown Wink!!!

Aww thanks guys, I'm only just getting to know the Islands really, been to Paxos twice & Corfu once, love both places but we're on a budget both financially & holiday leave from work, so I have to be picky.
You have sold Kassiopi to me, now I've just got to find the right price.Geek
MartynG - I described it to other half as looking a bit like Gaios, glad I was right.

Hi Nardine

June or September are perfect times to be in Corfu as there will be lots of wild spring flowers around on the hillsides and the weather isn't too hot.  (The hot summer weather usually breaks down from mid August will thunderstorms, but has settled down again by early September, so there is a"second spring")

To give you a resort comparison, I would equate Kassiopi with Gaios, whereas San Stephanos (n/e) is more like Lakka, although it doesn't have the square - instead, it's spread along the seafront.

I guess the reason why Stephanos (n/e) doesn't get the coverage on here that is afforded to the resort on the west coast is that it tends to be a bit more expensive and, perhaps, isn't quite so suitable for young families.  (That said, both of our boys - boys? - they are now 21 and 26 respectively! have grown up with the village having both visited almost every year since they were born).

I know what you mean about being a miser with your annual leave- we don't get much either! We initially thought people who returned to the same holiday destination were crazy, but it's our 4th time in Kassiopi this summer- we've defiantly caught the 'Kassiopi Bug'! Each holiday is what you make of it, and there are some karaoke bars, but they aren't in your face, and are easy to avoid, and as others have said, there are far more places which aren't like this!

We have been to Kassiopi several times and haven't been in a Karaoke bar or watched big screen television. There are plenty of other bars/restaurants to visit.
We go June or September, haven't been in July/August as neither of us like it too hot.
