Snorkeling at Agni, Corfu, Greece
Naar de Nederlandse site
Description of the site
Two nice small bays with pebble beaches and calm waters. The southern beach has several
tavernas with fresh fish and moderate prices. Suitable to go ashore since there is
a small landing pier and the owner of one of the restaurants is even
willing to pick you up when the ship is to deep for landing at the pier.

The Northern bay seems to be a popular place for tourists brought there by boat
from Corfu. We saw several boats, each bringing over twenty people. They seem to leave
early, and after that the beach is pretty quiet.
The rocks between the two beaches have pretty shapes and harbour many diferent fish. You may find
yourself snorkeling (UK: snorkelling ) for an hour at a spot of less than 100 m.
Because of boating activity, the water in the centre of the bay with tavernas may
be somewhat cloudy.
This is the only site we saw a group of small neon blue fish (juvenile Chromis?).
The exit from the main road is easy to miss, as there is only one small sign along the road. See the picture (From: "Jack & the Family").
You will find a small parking at the end of the road.
You can use the interactive map (e.g. moving, zooming, showing roadmap) to further explore the location, or use the
map in Google Maps
