Boukari is noted for its fish tavernas and is built around its tiny harbour where local fishermen congregate each day sell their catch.

This quiet village is on the East coast of the island and has a pebble beach and clean, calm water.  The accommodation is limited; mostly to studios and rooms and a reasonable sized hotel.  Mini markets and tavernas are all within walking distance.  Car hire is recommended as there is much to explore in the local area and beyond.

The natural curve of the island means the views of Messonghi, Moraitika and Corfu Town are magnificent and although it is on the East the sunsets are stunning.  This is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday and experiencing Corfiot Life!
