Kouloura

The picturesque Kouloura is one of the most photographed places of the Corfiot countryside. Those who are headed from the city   of Corfu towards Kassiopi, in the northern part of the island, will not resist to stop the car on the plateau of the road in order to enjoy, from high above, the view of the verdant bay where, the cypress trees reach until the sea and almost touch the fishing boats which are tied to the small port of the settlement. At close distance from this point are situated the shores and mountain tops of the neighboring Albania.

In Kouloura there are no houses near the shore. There is only a fish tavern and a small beach, completely unorganized, on the left of the bay. On the verdant hills above Kouloura there are some luxurious residences that are rentable during summer because many wealthy, mostly tourists, choose this kind of vacation which offers seclusion and tranquility. At a distance of about one kilometer is situated the amazing Kalami beach, with its white pebbles and its turquoise waters.
