Boukari fishing spot with seafood tavernas

Going along the coast road from Messonghi it is difficult to know exactly where Boukari begins….there are numerous small fish tavernas, and quiet bays where people can picnic, but then you round a bend and see the small harbor, and this is the heart of this hamlet.

The views across the bay to Corfu Town and beyond are stunning. The sea is crystal clear, and if you are lucky you might spot a dolphin out at sea.

It is not a sophisticated resort with lively nightlife, but rather one where the visitor can totally relax, become one with the environment.

There are enough tavernas to enable the visitor to choose a different one for every day of their holiday, although most will decide on their own favorite one. People are encouraged to go and choose their fish from the kitchen, which will then be cooked for them- meat-eaters are welcome too, however!

Boukari is also a good base for walkers. Up to the hill directly above the harbor, there is the small village of Kouspades, from there you can walk down to Petriti- a larger fishing harbor along the coast- and back along the road running by the sea. See on the map.

Chlomos is also along the ridge, and this is a village that well repays exploration, with narrow cobbled streets, fantastic views all over the south of the island, and several good bars and tavernas.
