This beautiful, little seaside fishing village, located 25 km south of Corfu Town, on the east coast, is truly delightful. One is spoilt for choice as there are numerous seafood tavernas along the waterfront, offering the catch of the day, delicious traditional Corfiot specialities and much more.
A really nice suggestion is the “Kalami Taverna” at the little jetty, which is perched right on the water’s edge. The position is perfect for one to watch the sun set over the sparkling sea, while enjoying a glass of wine or ouzo. Their menu is extensive with traditional Greek cuisine, fresh fish and shellfish, plus meat dishes to choose from. The décor is beautiful and has been designed around the huge, ancient, olive tree in the centre of the taverna, which adds to the tranquil ambiance.
The area is known for its safe, shallow waters, which is why Boukari beach is so popular with families with smaller children. It is also a favourite with couples who wish to escape the hustle and bustle and are looking for peace and quiet and want to chill out.
There are few facilities in the area and the pebble beach is quite pristine and uncrowded, as although a popular tourist area, it has not been overdeveloped. Accommodation is available in the form of apartments and studios.
Among their frequent visitors are nature lovers and hikers. There are some lovely walks in this lush, green unspoilt area.
Walkers often choose to explore the village of Kouspades, located on the hill above the port. 3 km south is the village of Petriti, the largest fishing port on the southeast coast, with an allure of its own. The charming village of Chlomos, one of the oldest in the area, with its picturesque narrow cobbled streets and breathtaking, unobstructed views, to both the east and west coast, is delightful to meander through.
