Agios (Saint) Stephanos is a small harbour village and a quiet resort, located on the North East coast of Corfu. It is not to be confused with the bustling resort of the same name on the South East, opposite coast. This little fishing village, located just a few kilometres south of Kassiopi, the nearest resort town, became a very popular resort with many stylish villas for rent, mainly attractive to couples and larger families during school holidays.

The shelter of hills that sweep down on either side of this extremely pretty village, make it a very safe harbour, with a classic-shades-of-blue water, and a yacht or two at anchor.

A car or boat is essential for exploring this greeny place. As you near Kassiopi, Agios Stephanos is signposted on your right. Take this turning, follow the narrow winding road down to the fork where there is a signpost to Avalaki on your left and Agios Stephanos on your right.  As you drive North East you will find full-of-bends narrow roads where mirrors have been placed on the particularly bad bends to help you. Drive careful through this part of the island as the bends do come up on you rather quickly.

Whether you like a quiet holiday routine, or enjoy renting a boat for some gentle exploration of the beautiful coastline, there is something for everyone in Saint Stephanos. Along the harbour-front you will find two good supermarkets selling even foreign newspapers, magazines and books and some shops selling fashion clothing, jewellery, handbags, ceramics and locally produced lace and embroidery, souvenirs and beach requirements. During the day there are plenty of comings-and-goings with boats, always amusing to watch.

Relaxing evenings can be spent in one of the several Tavernas looking across the water to Albania. The bars and tavernas are not usually noisy, but during the height of the season there are some visitors who liven things up a little more at night.

There is a narrow beach with sunbeds and umbrellas for hire, stretching along the left-hand side of the bay, which you can reach through a flat walk from the village road. The water shelves off very quickly to become quite deep, this is the reason why you would need to watch over the young children. Shoes can be purchased locally to protect your feet from the sea urchins if you are swimming by the rocks.
