What's Gouvia like

Gouvia is located on the east coast, just north of Kerkyra and the airport. It would take around 20 minutes to make the 10km drive to the capital and a bit less to get to the airport so it’s in a great location if you plan on visiting the main town often or if you just want a quick transfer time.

Gouvia is a former fishing village that’s been developed over the years. At one time it was pretty much a single road with bars, restaurants and shops rather than a complete village but as more and more establishments open it’s becoming a genuine tourist resort with all the expected facilities like car hire outlets, super markets, a good choice of accommodation and plenty of evening entertainment.

We would recommend Gouvia for couples and families who want a low key break but with the option of popping over to Kerkyra for the night life, shopping or sight seeing. Some kids and teens may find it a tad quiet so you might need to choose somewhere else if your little ones get bored easily.

One of the main attractions to Gouvia is the huge Gouvia Marina which has over 1000 births and is lined with restaurants making it a fantastic place to sit and watch the locals go about their business.

Gouvia nightlife

As mentioned the night life in Gouvia is relatively low key. There’s a great selection of places to eat and drink once the sun goes down as well as a few cocktail bars and other establishments that stay open pretty late but there’s no night clubs.

A lot of people enjoy sitting around the marina as it’s an attractive place to be and it’s great to sit and watch the boats coming and going.

What to do around Gouvia

With it’s close proximity to the capital you have all that Kerkyra has to offer, with The Old Fortress, The New Fortress, The Liston and much more.

As well as that you can head north to Ipsos which has loads of nightlife in case you want a change of scenery one night. Continue on along the east coast and you’ll find some beautiful villages like Agios Stefanos North East, Kalami, Kassiopi and many, many more.
