This village set on a large bay has long been a popular holiday resort, but it now has an added attraction- the island’s largest marina, always bustling with yachts of all sizes from many nations. This means that a large selection of bars and tavernas have sprung up, offering plenty of choice for visitors.

The remains of the Venetian arsenal can be seen on the water’s edge, it was an excellent harbor for their ships, and an aircraft hangar across the bay is a reminder that in more recent times flying boats stopped here.

Opposite Gouvia is the peninsula of Kommeno, with a little whitewashed church is on an islet, reached by a causeway. Some of Corfu’s loveliest villas are here, glimpsed through the trees whilst enjoying one of the many boat trips on offer- a feature of this part of the island.

Its position makes Gouvia an excellent centre for exploring the northern part of Corfu, whilst only being a short bus ride from the lovely old town of Corfu itself.
