Cosy Unspoilt Nissaki Bay Beach in Corfu, Greece

It is always the same story every time we holiday in the Greek Isles. I always end up with a few favourite places at the end of the holiday. In Corfu I have a few on the list and Nissaki is one of them.

The bay beach is small and cosy which makes it really attractive and inviting. Because we were there just before the peak summer season, we didn’t have to fight for a spot on the beach. I guess Dutchman and I are spoiled with regards to this. It’s one of the perks of not having any children. You can go during off peak seasons and enjoy a normal and relaxing holiday without the rush, the crowds and expensive prices.

Nissaki is located in the north eastern part of the island, just before reaching Kalami, Agios Stefanos and Kassiopi. Dutchman and I spent an afternoon here. We didn’t really do much here except park ourselves on the beach, luckily though we were able to find a spot on the small beach with some shade. We did some swimming of course. Dutchman snorkelled. I did some ocular inspection of the surroundings and went inside a shop to buy snickers ice cream. It’s become our favourite afternoon snack on the beach. Summers are always scorching hot and what better way to damp the hotness of the afternoon with some ice cream. And oh, sleep. Yes, we sleep a lot on the beach in the afternoons. It has become a tradition =)

It is very nice actually to sleep outdoors with the warmth around you, under the shade and hearing the sound of the water splashing on the beach shore. Its therapeutic.

So the beach is a pebble beach with rock formation along the shore. The Mitsos taverna sits on top of the rocks beside the beach which is quite a nice place to have lunch and drinks. There are rental boats moored here as well. However the Dutchman and I are lazy; we prefer to lay down on the beach, do nothing much and just watch the world go by.

This is our route from our holiday apartment in Kato Korakiana near Dassia Beach Resort to Nissaki:

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

Our view from our spot. We managed to get a place on the beach under the tree. Half an hour later a group of Spaniards arrived and took the rest of the free spots under the tree.

On the other side of the beach is a little harbour.

All the beds and parasols were taken so we have no choice really but to camp. It is nice to actually sleep on the beach.

It is so idyllic here. Love that the bay beach is small, cosy and not crowded at all.

Yours truly =). In this holiday trip, I forgot to bring my bikini and bathing suits, so I had to quickly buy one in the capital. We also forgot to bring our beach towels, so we bought a set at one of the China Shops.

This place is beautiful and serene, unspoilt from all the commerce and development of today's soceity. This is just how we want our afternoon on the beach to be like.

If you do holiday in Corfu, do visit Nissaki.
