Kokkini

The village Kokkini on the northern part of the island is a traditional settlement with few inhabitants in the region of Sinies. Sinies, which was an old community, was constituted of 17 small districts, including amongst others, Kokkini and extended from the region of Kouloura to the threshold of Kassiopi.

The root of the name derives from the Latin world SINIUM which means «signal» or «sign», and was named this way, probably because of its position above the sea and from the signal which warned the inhabitants of these villages, when an enemy ship was approaching. The village Palies Sinies , abandoned today,is one of the sights of the region.

Kokkini is at a distance of about 29 kilometers from the city of Corfu. In the center of the settlement, you will find a small square and a lovely church where, the locals gather. Kokkini is situated in the inland but, it is close to the beautiful beaches of Kalami and Kerasia with turquoise waters and fine pebbles.
