Corfu Sunshine

Welcome to Corfu Sunshine

Hello and welcome; this site is quite simply dedicated to a place and people we love. On the North West corner of the Greek island of Corfu is a village called San Stefanos. Thirty years ago it was a small harbour and not a lot more but now it is a holiday resort with one of the best natural beaches on the island.

The beach stretches in a gentle hook from the village on the southern end along and under the cliffs at the northern end. The southern end is what most people now expect of a holiday beach with bars, restaurants and sun beds. However towards the northern end the beach is quieter, with large open expanses of sand and fewer people. One word of warning - the very far end of the beach is used by the naturist community which some people may find offensive.

The beach stretches out with a large, naturally shallow shelf and several sand banks protect this area from the more open water making the inshore waters particularly warm. These sand banks are useful as youngsters can stay in the shallower waters on the beach side of them but you should be aware that, once beyond the sandbanks, the sea does get deep quite quickly.

Many of the locals still live in the traditional ridge village Avliotes which is a couple of kilometres to the north east of San Stefanos. Here the houses cling to the ridge in an attempt to catch the breeze when it's hot. A secondary advantage of such elevations is the easy drainage that occurs naturally to take away all the rain that falls in winter, the rain that makes Corfu such a green and lush location.

So feel free to explore our site and learn more about San Stefanos and the island of Corfu!
