There are several spots to have a beautiful view of the sunset in Corfu. One beautiful position is on the top of Prinilas road overlooking the St George’s (Pagon) bay and the Diapontia islands in the background. Depending on the visibility you can almost see Italy on the far horizon. Then Arillas has some beautiful sunsets. Angelokastro too.The best known, however, is the Kaiser’s observatory in Pelekas.


This small village runs along the top of a small peninsula between the beaches of Agios Georgios in Paghi and Arillas. Looking out to the Mediterranean sea in a northwesterly direction, one feels their spirit soar. A very tempting restaurant also serves local organic food with one of the best views in the world from its private veranda.

This sunset beach on the central west coast of Corfu is a popular summer resort that has it all. Beach bars and restaurants, water sports, an intriguing natural landscape and a sunset finale that puts the cherry on the cake. Don’t forget to take your camera whether you choose to watch the show from the beach or the main road leading down to the resort.


This is one of the best golden sand beaches in the south of Corfu that runs parallel to Korission lake. A protected area of natural importance to the local habitat, Chalikounas is the place to walk barefoot in the sand while you watch the sun go down. There is nothing better in the world than a swim while the sun dives into the waters with you.


Most Corfiots appreciate the fact that they can get one of the best sunset views from the very heart of Corfu Town. An evening stroll along the waterfront promenade past the Palace of Saint Michael and George will lead you along the outer ring road of this UNESCO World Heritage Town. From here one can lose track of time watching the boats come and go into the main port of Corfu while waiting for the sun to set across the illuminated sky.


This traditional village on the west coast of Corfu is probably the closest to Corfu town. Pelekas is known for its lively character and for the 360-degree views from the top of Pelekas hill which is called Keiser’s Throne. A sunset spot for kings and queens for sure with the possibility of a cocktail or two from the top of the world!


The northernmost point of Corfu Island offers a sunset spot called the 7th Heaven with a specially built, transparent viewing balcony that protrudes from the end of a cliff! Here the sun melts into the sea beside Erikousa Island.

There are others spots too that only a very few nature lovers would appreciate but if you have been to Corfu you will come to realize that the whole island is a wonder.
