Whether you want to snooze by the sea or go green in the mountainous foothills, Nissaki holidays offer the best of both worlds.

Sleeping beauty

Meaning 'little island' in Greek, Nissaki proves that some of the best things really do come in small packages. Situated on the north-east coast of Corfu with sweeping valleys at its back, this sleepy little village lined by white pebbles cosies up to the crystal-clear waters of the Ionian Sea.

Timeless tavernas

It's no secret Greeks pride themselves on their cuisine, and for good reason. You can't miss indulging in some of the local delicacies that Nissaki has on offer. Think melt-in-your-mouth stifado – that's Greek beef stew – fresh tzatziki yoghurt dip and sticky-sweet baklava.

Dive into the Ionian Sea

The calm water here's just right for a spot of scuba. Swim with the fish and keep your eyes peeled for octopus, starfish or even a sea turtle or two. If you want to push the boat out further, Nissaki's watersports are top of their game. Adventurous travellers can make their splash water-skiing, wake-boarding, banana boating and parasailing.

Photo opps on Mt Pandokrator

If you're up for a hike with double-take views, lace up your boots and head to Mt Pandokrator. Dotted with cypress trees, the Corfu Trail route leads to sea vistas that will make you fall head over heels for Greece. Don't forget to pack a selfie stick for those perfect sunset snaps.
