Holidays to Kommeno Bay take you to an exclusive retreat on Corfu’s eastern coast – there’s fine dining, secluded beaches and Corfu Town just 20 minutes away.
Kommeno Bay is an idyllic setting for a truly relaxing Cruise & Stay holiday. The Bay’s quiet, unspoiled beaches and top-end hotels and restaurants will ensure you leave feeling revitalised. As well as sun worshiping and fine dining, there’s also a superb choice of activities and attractions at this holiday resort.
The best of all worlds
Kommeno Bay, on the east coast of Corfu, is known for its secluded beaches and luxury hotels. The real beauty of a trip to the Bay is that it will please everyone, which is priceless when you’re travelling with family or friends. At this destination, you could be reading on a beach one day, parasailing on the Ionian Sea another, and exploring 18th-century Venetian ruins the next.
The average temperature is above 30°C in summer. When the sun is splitting the sky, there’s no better way to cool off than with a dip in the sea. In addition to swimming, Kommeno Bay is a paradise for parasailing and water-skiing — enquire and hire at the local hotels. The huge Aqualand waterpark is just half an hour away if you want somewhere fun to splash around in the sun.
Vibrant town life
Corfu Town (or Kerkyra) is the capital of Corfu, and is only 20 minutes’ drive from Kommeno Bay. This town is a must-visit if you like to put shopping high on your cruise holiday agenda. The busy centre is packed with luxury boutiques, and there are lively regular markets selling food, clothing and souvenirs. As the evening arrives, this upbeat atmosphere continues when the bars and restaurants at the port and in the old town come alive with locals, students and visitors.
Gouvia is another interesting location that’s close to the Bay. This former fishing village was built on the site of an ancient Venetian harbour. Much of the historic shipyard is well-preserved, and provides an impressive setting for an afternoon stroll. Back in Corfu Town, the Old Fortress is another example of the Island’s Venetian history. Certain parts are open to the public, including the library, and there are spectacular views of the town and beyond from the top.
