Walking trail on Corfu Walking trail on Corfu

Walking on the Greek Island of Corfu means walking in a mosaic of verdant green and azure blue. As you walk on almost forgotten trails between sleepy mountain villages you will discover lush green mountainous landscapes where the beguiling blue of the sea is very rarely out of sight.

Kalami, situated on the Northeast coast of Corfu, just 30 km from Corfu Town has the ideal setting for people who enjoy walking and rambling. It is considered to be one of the most tranquil beauty spots on the island. It is a horseshoe-shaped bay, with a rare beauty of the Greek uniqueness of nature. The amphitheatric greenery accompanied with the Ionian Sea and the hillside villages around Kalami are a perfect combination for an idyllic and relaxing environment.

In May, June, September or October, the weather is refreshing with a mild climate and the ideal time for rambling. Also Kalami beach proudly flies the blue flag, the European standards symbol awarded to beaches that are clean and well organised. It is a pebbly beach and the water is crystal clear and absolutely perfect to take a dip during or after your walk.

Kalami to Kouloura – 20 mins (short walk)

Walk along the main road leaving Kalami (keep the sea on your right). Follow this road until you get to a junction, do not turn left, continue straight down the hill and turn right and you are in the little harbour of Kouloura.
Kouloura is one of the most photographed beauty spots on the island. Sit and relax, have lunch and watch all the fishing boats coming in and going out of the harbour.

Kalami to Agios Stephanos – 1hr 15mins (long walk)

Follow the walk to Kouloura, do not turn right down to the harbour, go straight ahead where you will find a small pebble beach. You will see a large old building at the end of the beach, just after this, you will then begin to climb the headland. You will walk along the beautiful hillside and arrive at a very tiny pebble beach. Have a swim-stop here, then, rejoin your path up the hillside. You will pass another beach further along, this is Kerasia, this beach, has barely been discovered by tourists, so it is not very busy.

There is one taverna at the end of this beach. Next to the taverna is a road that will then take you to Agios Stefanos. There is another way taking you cross-country but we do not recommend it, as it can be highly dangerous in places. Agios Stefanos is a picturesque bay where fishing boats and small yacht flotillas frequent in the circular harbour. This area is surrounded by, red-roofed and whitewashed houses, which makes the perfect photograph.
Unless you want to walk back, we do suggest you ask for a taxi in one of the tavernas.
