The village of Petriti is a small traditional fishing harbour on the east coast of Corfu (or Kerkyra) and a stop for a meal of freshly caught fish is highly recommended. With a number of berths for visiting sailing yachts this northern Ionian fishing village retains its old Greek charm and is quite different from Petriti’s neighbouring resort towns of Lefkimni (Kavos) and Boukari (Voukari), both more touched by tourism.

Taking a stroll around this little village reveals an intense activity demonstrated by the fishermen, which is fascinating to watch as you get a little insight into life on Petriti. Despite the tourism, it still manages to retain it’s unique character and typical Greek charm.
