Barbati

Barbati holidays

Nestled between lush mountains, olive groves and the sapphire sea on Corfu’s east side, Barbati is a dinky seaside village where life revolves around the beach. And when it’s such a beautiful Blue Flag beach, it’s easy to see why! Close to the shore, family-run tavernas plate up the day’s fresh catches and local favourites. Tuck into lamb kleftiko, hearty slabs of moussaka or grilled sardines, all while enjoying sparkling sea views. 

Base yourself at the beach

Barbati hugs a half-moon bay, with a shingle shore sloping down into crystal-clear waters. It’s thought to be one of the best beaches on the island, so grab a sunbed and settle in for some sunshine. In the distance, you can spy Corfu Old Town and the mountains of Albania. Like water sports? There are plenty on offer, along with boat tours to nearby beaches.

Go day tripping

Want to see more of the island? It’s amazing capital, Corfu Town, is just half an hour’s drive down the coast. Amble around the elegant Old Town to spot Venetian remains, neoclassical buildings and twisting lanes. It’s also here you’ll find fantastic restaurants and lively bars to dine, drink and dance the night away, if you’re after a change from Barbati’s go-slow vibes.
