The Little Picturesque Harbour of Kouloura in Corfu, Greece

This picturesque little haven is tucked away in a sheltered cove but can be seen from above the road. Many passers-by would stop by to take pictures and this is how we discovered the place. I knew about Kouloura from brochures but didn’t know where it is actually located. In fact, I was looking for her. Thanks to the many tourists along the road, it piqued our curiosity so we had to take a look as well. When I got down from the scooter and walked to the edge of the cliff, I saw the beautiful harbour, I screamed inside, ‘Oh dear me, I finally found her!’

And of course I am not easily contented, so Dutchman and I scootered down to the jetty.

Well, there’s really not much to do there. It is a very small place. There’s a basic beach on the bay across the harbour but many holidaymakers prefer to go to the bigger and livelier beach cove on the other side which is Kalami (we went here as well). There’s a taverna on the roadside cliff which would be perfect for lunch and dinner, that is if you prefer to dine with a view, but quietly.

For the rest, it is a functioning haven, a small one though that offers unobstructed views to the long coast of Albania.

Here are a few cruise boats.

Before I forget, this is by the way our route from Dassia, our basecamp for the holiday to Kouloura. It's about half an hour, just before reaching Agios Stefanos Kassiopi. Dutchman and I love our scooter rides in the Greek Islands.

You can move the map by holding it with your mouse, as well as zoom it in and out by clicking the + and - signs on the lower right hand side.

It is always difficult to take a selfie with the sun scorching into your eyes. So a repeat selfie is in order.

This is the viewing point where it all began:
