    Looking back at Akrotiri Tripati

    Instead of heading back to the beach there is a faint path that takes you along the west coast for a couple of kilometres and you can pick up your original path from the deserted village back to Korfu

    Walk to Akrotiri Tripiti

    On the way to Akrotiri Tripiti,

    From Korfu it is about 4 kilometres to Akrotiri Tripiti, the most southern point of Europe, there is an excellent path that starts off from just behind the beach and it will take you a good hour to get there ( + stops) -- Make sure that you have Plenty of food and water for the day as there is Nothing south of Korfu

    Korfu beach

    Korfu beach is a good choice of somewhere to go / stay -- we camped but there are also rooms available at Georgios and Maria's Taverna.
