In recent years the small harbour village of Agios Stephanos on the north east coast has become very popular with visitors who are looking for something a bit special. With its fabulous views, Greek hospitality and quality of cuisine found at the harbour side tavernas, not forgetting the unspoiled feel of the place, it has a draw that is easy to understand.
On one side of the harbour is a small beach, shaded by old olive trees, that gently shelves into clear waters. The village is home to a couple of pretty little shops to browse and boat rental is available. Exploring the coastline and discovering the myriad of other coves and bays nearby is a lovely way to spend a lazy day and a great reason to consider Agios Stephanos as your destination when next visiting Corfu.

The Ionian Islands region
The island of Corfu is located just off the West coast of Greece. Corfu enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate along with excellent beaches making it a popular destination for holiday makers. Corfu is very green compared to other Greek islands: hot and dry summers along with winter rain creates lush vegetation which is dominated by over 2 million olive trees. These olive trees on Corfu are the main cultivation, although Corfu's tourism now provides the most income.
Saint Stephanos: The island of Corfu has its secrets and Saint Stephanos, set around a horse-shoe shaped bay, is certainly one of them. An extremely pretty fishing village, located between Kalami and Kassiopi, that has managed to retain its traditional look and laidback feel . There is a small local Greek community that welcomes its visitors with the warmth and hospitality for which Greece is famous. The excellent setting, waterfront Tavernas and bars, along with a scattering of mini-markets, shops and boat hire create a delightful Greek island holiday destination.
