Peace and quietEscape the crowds and see an authentic side to Corfu. Tucked away on the east coast, the resort of Psarras is little more than a sand and shingle beach backed by forest-covered mountains. A scattering of laidback tavernas serve delicious Greek fare, but nightlife is reserved for the two neighbouring towns, so it’s a really peaceful spot.Seafront diningA handful of family-run tavernas line the seafront, so you can pair authentic Greek cuisine with ocean views. Hefty plates of calamari and lobster are served fresh from the water. But Kleftiko is the local speciality that really gets everyone talking. This slow-cooked lamb dish is marinated with lemon and herbs and comes out sizzling hot in a foil wrap.Messonghi and MoraitikaPsarras’ two neighbouring towns are busier on the nightlife front, so they’re great if you want to turn the tempo up a notch. Messonghi is ideal for laidback evenings sipping cocktails. And the bright lights of Moraitika stretch for a kilometre along the seafront, so you can hop from club to club until the early hours.
