The northeastern coast of Corfu is characterized by lacy shores, with green coves and beaches with all white pebbles. Following this coastal route one can enjoy unique, elevated landscapes with the imposing Mount Pantokrator as a back drop.
Just before the cosmopolitan settlement of Kassiopi is the picturesque fishing village of Agios Stefanos Sinion and a few kilometres past its small port, one of the most beloved beaches of the island. Kerasia beach is hidden in an idyllic green terrain, in a locale where luxury meets simplicity.
Kerasia has all the features that characterize the wider area. Crystal blue-green waters, a lush landscape abundant with trees and white pebbled beaches compose an idyllic panorama for those who want to spend quiet moments in nature.
The sea deepens relatively steeply but its waters are always crystal clear. Above the coast there is a mini market and on the right hand side are two shops where one can enjoy a coffee, cold beverage or a bite to eat. There is also the possibility of renting a pedal boat, canoe or boat to explore the bay.
Kerasia is a choice for many locals as it is ideal for Sunday family excursions. It is preferred by many foreign visitors who live in the surrounding locale as well.
Opposite one can see the picturesque coast of neighbouring Albania, which adds to the canvas.
Despite its proximity to the tourist resort of Kassiopi, the beach is distinguished for its tranquility. It is therefore no coincidence that luxury villas have been built in this vicinity, – either privately owned or rented – chosen by those seeking seclusion. The Rothschild’s family mansion, which has hosted celebrities from time to time, is also located in this area.
