Agia Efimia

Situated on the island’s east coast, just to the north of Sami and renowned for lending its picturesque scenery to the filmmakers of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Agia Efemia is a quaint fishing village that has “woken up” to modern tourism by developing an attractive waterfront promenade of tavernas, bars, cafes and restaurants..

Assos

The village of Assos is built in one of the most picturesque parts of the island astride the narrowest point of the narrow Assos promontory.

Fiscardo

Located on the north eastern tip of the Erisos peninsula, nestling amongst dense pine forests and surrounded by a dramatic mountain backdrop, this quaint harbour with its attractive Venetian architecture is perhaps the best known port of the Ionian Islands.

Katelios

Originally a quiet fishing village, Katelios has developed into a peaceful, family-friendly beach resort for those seeking a holiday atmosphere where the emphasis is on relaxation.

Lassi

Due to its lovely sandy beaches and proximity to both airport and town, Lassi is understandably popular.
