Ipsos is on the east coast of Corfu
, just north of the airport and the capital Kerkyra
. It would take you around 20-30 minutes to make the 16 km drive to or from the main town and about the same to the airport.
Most of the bars and restaurants in Ipsos are along the road that runs behind the beach, this means you can have a nice sea view whilst enjoying your meal or drinks. There’s also a few bars, restaurants and hotels set back from the beach in the quieter area of the town.
Ipsos is a good choice for families with teenagers as they can enjoy the more lively parts of the resort whilst mum and dad can enjoy the quieter areas. There’s pubs and bars for those that want to go drinking in the evening but also nice restaurants for those that just want to relax with a nice meal.
At one time, Ipsos was a party resort full of 18-30 type pubs and clubs but it has tried to shed that image over the years.
At present that reputation has been left behind a bit, although it is still pretty lively in the evening and there remains a number of “English” style bars so it’s probably not suitable for those looking for traditional Greek charm.
For those who are looking for late nights drinking, check out Kavos
which is now the main 18-30 resort on the island.
Ipsos has a long and narrow sand and pebble beach with water sports and sun loungers to hire as well as loads of shops and other facilities available around the beach, go to our Ipsos beach page to find out more about the beach.
Also nearby is Gouvia
to the south so you can easily head over there and enjoy some time at Gouvia Marina
. Alternatively, head north and you'll get to Barbati
which is another nice place to visit.
