Holidays to Nissaki bring you a peaceful spot with friendly tavernas, a relaxed beach, and fantastic walking opportunities.
Tucked into a peaceful corner of northeast Corfu, Nissaki is an idyllic little retreat. A Cruise & Stay holiday here means leisurely days on the beach, quiet evenings in cosy beachfront tavernas and the chance to explore some beautiful landscape by hiking secluded island trails.
Cosy village life
Nissaki is a small village with a handful of authentic shops and dining options to discover. Happily, the place is not so sleepy that there isn’t there’s a good selection of beachfront restaurants to sample in the evenings, with many serving delicious home-cooked Greek cuisine. Here, on the Corfu coast, you can get a wonderful view out over the sea to Albania.
Huge, scenic hiking trail
Corfu is perfect to explore on foot, thanks to its 220-kilometre hiking trail. The Corfu Trail was established in 2001 and allows you to discover the diversity of the island landscape, from olive groves and forests to beaches and sand dunes. You can easily join the trail from Nissaki, but go prepared with proper footwear and plenty of water as there are some steep sections. Don’t be put off by the challenge, though, as the stunning vistas are an ideal way to start or end a cruise holiday.
Clear water beach
You can hire sun loungers and parasols to while away a day of your Cruise & Stay break on Nissaki’s lovely white pebble beach. The sea is clear, so it’s perfect for snorkelling and scuba diving if you fancy taking the plunge to get up close with the marine life around Nissaki’s coves. For more adventurous watersports, head along the beach to a nearby jetty and try your hand at water-skiing and other high-octane activities.
If you want to spend an afternoon or more browsing boutiques, it’s worth the 40-minute drive to Corfu Town for shopping. But for local trinkets and souvenirs, you will find your needs are easily satisfied with Nissaki’s little gift shops. These places sell handmade wares, ranging from ceramics to clothing, made by local craftspeople. The nearby supermarkets also mean you don’t have to travel far to get picnic supplies for a day at the beach or a hike along the Corfu Trail.
