Agios Stefanos village is situated on the north western side of Corfu island. It is built amphitheatrically on the slopes of a hill, just opposite the complex of Diapontia Islands (Othonoi, Ereikousa and Mathraki). This is the closest place to the Greek borders with Italy and its coasts are washed by the Adriatic Sea. Small boats depart every day from the small port of Agios Stefanos with destination to the Diapontia Islands and to nearby areas. Fishing boats of locals usually moor in the port of Agios Stefanos creating an authentic atmosphere.
The large beach of Agios Stefanos has wonderful golden sand and turquoise shallow waters. It is considered very safe and is highly recommended to families with children.
Every year this beach is awarded with the European Union Blue Flag for the Environment Protection, thanks to its clean waters. The beach is very well equipped and you will find sun beds, WC, showers, a playground and various sea activities. Many beach bars, taverns, restaurants, supermarkets and a lot of souvenir shops can be found along the beach and in the village of Agios Stefanos.
