Apraos is found on the north east coast of Corfu
about 40km north of both the capital and the airport. That means your transfer time is going to be just over an hour.
The village of Apraos is small and quiet with virtually no facilities, you wont find late night bars, souvenir shops or supermarkets, there are a couple of tavernas down by the beach and a handful of hotels.
If you need anything else you’ll have to travel to the nearby village of Kassiopi
where there are plenty of places to stock up on supplies or bars for a night out. Kassiopi is walk-able from Apraos and it would usually take between 45 minutes and an hour.
Apraos is sometimes also referred to as Kalamaki as that’s the name of the beach that the village is based around. This obviously gets confusing but just remember if people are talking about Apraos or Kalamaki it’s the same place. The name change goes for the beach too, it’s usually Kalamaki beach but is often referred to Apraos beach.
Talking about the beach, it is probably the main reason that people go to Apraos, it’s absolutely huge and hosts plenty of visitors throughout the summer months, including large amounts of boat trippers at various times of the day. This doesn’t really impact the beach much as it’s so wide it never feels over crowded. Click here to find out more about Kalamaki beach
As you can probably guess, there's minimal nightlife in Apraos, there's just a handful of tavernas and nothing in the way of late night bars or night clubs.
You may find that the tavernas are happy to stay open late if there's enough people in there but don't rely on it.
Luckily you're not too far from Kassiopi so you can head there for a night out or just for a change of scenery.
The north east of Corfu is pretty quiet, it's made up of laid back village after laid back village and that's what attracts people to come back year after year.
If you're looking for museums, historical sites or other attractions you'll probably need to take a day trip to Kerkyra
