I hope you enjoyed the first part of our exploration of part of the island. Today we continue with the second day of our trip through Corfu. We drove towards the northern mountainous region and started with the highest elevation on the island, Pantokrator (906 m/2972 ft). The view and silence up there were breathtaking. The nerve-wracking drive on the extremely narrow and winding mountain road and the narrow streets through the small villages were forgotten for a moment. On the highest point there was a small church in the middle of a picturesque garden. It seemed like an oasis in the midst of all those rocks and sand.
After that, we went to the village of Sidari. It is located on the north coast, which is characterized by its cliffs. We visited the so-called Canal d’Amour:
Although not that far away, it took us another 30 minutes to get to Cape Drastis. Again, it was a thrill to get there. But you are rewarded with a spectacular view of the cliffs that drop more than 50 m (164 ft) here. You know I’m afraid of heights – I was very brave!
The next stop took us to Angelokastro, another stunning viewpoint. (Again… how can two cars pass each other on such narrow roads?) I continuously thanked my son and admired him for driving and even having fun. You can get an idea of what I’m talking about in one of the following photos.
Two of the last photos who three little coves. Our next stop took us down to the village of Paleokastritsa for a very late lunch and for some snorkeling.
I hope you liked the little tour. Of course, there is much more to see and I hope to be back one day to see more of this charming place.
In Love and Light
