Avlaki is not particularly known among tourists, although it is a lovely pebbly beach with crystal clear water and it is awarded with the "Blue Flag" honor , for its cleanness.
Avlaki is a quiet beach, an ideal tourist destination for families. It is a very quiet beach, even in during the months of July and August. Situated between the village of Agios Stephanos to the south and the bigger livelier resort of Kassiopi to the North, Avlaki is relatively unknown to most of Corfu’s visitors.
The beach has sunbeds and few taverns with delicious local food. In the afternoon, a northern sea breeze enters the beach, swipping the heat away from it. The beach promises a lot of scope for water sports, such as sailing and canoeing. Boats are also available for hire. Small cruise boats will take you to the nearby bays. Avlaki is flat and there are no steps or rocks.
Avlaki is a tranquil destination ideal for those looking for a quiet, unspoilt location with good beach and swimming.
The North East coast of Corfu is one of the most stunning regions of Corfu with its lush, emerald green scenery acting as a backdrop to the beautiful blues of the Ionian Sea, and far reaching coastal views over to the shores of Albania.
