Kavos Travel Guide
Shopping Shopping in Kavos is mostly limited to souvenirs. For more choice, there are regular buses to Corfu Town, which has an excellent range of items on offer. Good buys include gold, leather, lace, ceramics and silver. Self-caterers will find mini-markets that supply the essentials.
Restaurants Most tourists choose to eat in their apartments, but those who are looking for a night out will find a wide choice on the menu, from local delicacies, seafood, curries and traditional English pub grub.
Nightlife Kavos is one of the top party destinations in Greece, and is crammed full of bars and clubs with music, dancing and karaoke. All sorts of day and night-time entertainment is available, from booze cruises, foam parties, themed club nights, and resident DJs. Most of the activity is centred on the main strip, where bars lure in early drinkers with happy hour deals.
Activities The sea around Kavos is warm and shallow, which is ideal for swimming and watersports, which include waterskiing, donut rides, and parasailing. Popular excursions include a visit to the nearby aqua park, and boat trips around the scenic coast. Culture lovers can venture to the island's historic capital, Corfu Town, which is packed with interesting archaeological sites. Corfu's interior is also worth exploring. Unspoilt and uncrowded during all seasons, it's the perfect place to find some tranquillity.
Negatives The nightlife in Kavos is famously vibrant, and the resort is probably not ideal for families or those seeking a relaxing holiday. Kavos attracts touts from far afield, who look to steer visitors to clubs. These salesmen are very pushy but can be worth chatting up, as they offer free drinks. Visitors should watch out for pick pockets.
