We travelled the entire island and visited several lovely areas however Gouvia has to be the worst location on the entire island, it is awful, very run down, a terrible man made beach made of quarry hardcore. The town has many bars, restaurants and tat shops all expensive and low quality. No entertainment or very poor in a couple of bars. Nothing for children or teenagers to enjoy.

Lots to do in Gouvia, the resort is quiet but not boring, caters for all ages from babies to elderly. There is something for everyone, bars are open 'til late, but do not disturb Hotel guests, there are nightclubs and big bars to visit or quiet family restaurants. Local pubs are welcoming and friendly, though I was not happy with the English bar in the resort, the landlady was rude and unfriendly, her prices we're higher than local bars. Food in the tavernas was superb, each taverna was better than the next, you would have to try a different restaurant every night to experience them. Beach is lovely and clean, very stony and difficult to walk on, you need shoes, the water is so warm to swim in, can be very deep in parts, but very safe. Shops selling souvenirs are lovely, prices are cheap, though I recommend you shop around. I bought a pair of sunglasses for €4 and the shop at top of town were costing €8. Great thing in small town is the Local Drs, English speaking surgery open 24 hours for emergency, also the hospital is only 5 minutes taxi ride away.

We only visited Gouvia village on a couple of occasions, plenty of restaurants, car and motorbike hire, trips and sea cruise bookings and the usual gift shops. If you need to change money the trust exchange will do that, exchange rate was €1.05 for £1. Of the restaurants we tried the La Kantas was best for us with no charge for water or bread which is provided at the beginning of your visit whilst your food is being prepared. The beach area is basic, a shingle and pebble beach with sunbeds and little else. There is a better beach and facilities at Dassia, a ten minute €1.70 bus trip and the sun beds were free but do try the restaurants which provide the sunbeds they were good. There is one hotel that does charge but you can avoid that if you wish. We can recommend a boat trip with Ionian cruises it was excellent value even though it was a windy day they managed to fit everything in including a BBQ. If you take the Grand Island Coach tour beware there are additional charges not explained initially on booking for some of the places visited, although these are optional on arrival at the location, our guide had exceptional knowledge of the Island its history and all the locations we visited; finally it is a very long day starting at 10am and ending at 19:30 for our location of Gouvia.

Two areas stood out for us; firstly our morning to walk to the Marina to do a spot of people watching over coffee. The second was hiring a boat for the day from Billy's boats, which was a great day out and so much better than the large organised trips. Food was good in the restaurants and the Indian was outstanding! Seems odd having an Indian in Corfu but it really was great and so we went twice during our stay.

The resort itself is quite small and many of the restaurants and shops had closed down, possibly due to being end of the season but a few looked like they've been closed for some time. The pebble beach is small but the water is clean and the views across the bay are lovely.

Gouvia is ideally positioned to explore the jewel that is Corfu, all facilities are within easy walking distance. Good restaurants line up to compete for your trade, my own favourite being SOS restaurant at the northern end of the village. A large and spectacular bay is the home of one of the largest marinas in the whole of the Mediterranean which is full of all types and size of both sailing and motor yachts, from 9 to 50 metres. Envy can be yours for as far as you can walk, I spent 4 hours walking the jetties and still only saw 3/4 of the vessels berthed here. <br /> <br /> A regular bus service can be utilised to take you north and south, or you can hire all types of 2 and 4 wheel bikes, quads and cars from a number of rental companies. Boats can be hired along with all types of watersport fun from the bay and cruises to take you too in all directions, from the various islands to trips across to mainland Greece or Albania (only a few kms away). My personal choice is to hire a 125cc scooter, this time clocking up 1150kms during my 2 week holiday! All in all a fantastic holiday and one I will not wait another 8 years to repeat.

The problem with Gouvia is there is no pavement or very little, so it is not very enjoyable walking about the village, because you have to have one eye on the cars and scooters speeding through here. There are a number of pubs, restaurants shops. The beach is stoney, there is also a marina that is quite nice.

Beaches

There are several beaches which are made up of shingle, pebble and sand. The middle section of the beach is best for swimmers as the beach shelves gently into the sea. Either side of this section is a good choice of watersports including motorised watersports.

Nearby Attractions

Corfu Town is only 8km away which is worth a visit both during the day and at night and is easily reached by bus or taxi. Here there is an Old Town with cobbled streets housing shops, bars and restaurants and visitors can also wander around the churches and museums. The Ipapanti Church which is found in the village of Komeno, about a 15 minute walk away, is worth visiting also.

Quick Facts

Corfu Airport is approximately 10 km away - transfer time about 15 minutes.
