In northern Corfu the rich natural variety forms a surprising landscape alternating from vast green areas to rivers, waterfalls and caves. Areas defined as parks or protected Natura locations, are waiting for you to explore them. 

 

Antinioti Lagoon
Antinioti Lagoon or Limnothalassa Antinioti is situated on the North of the island off the main road towards the coast in the region of Thinali. At the far end of the main beach at Agios (Saint) Spyridon on the North of the island is an inlet for the Lake, there is a small bridge here that will take you to the area known as Nissos Island.

Waterfalls of Kyprianades
The second largest waterfall on the island of Corfu, right after the waterfall in Nymfes, is the Waterfall in Kyprianades, of about 8 meters high. It is formed by a tributary of the Tyflos River, the creek of Klimatia which on its course towards the north Ionian Sea also passes outside the village of Kyprianades. Access to the Waterfall of Kyprianades  is relatively easy. Read more

Erimitis
A verdant paradise with deep blue waters, a labyrinthine coastline where, beaches, coves, capes and three lakes are formed that make it a significant wetland, called Erimitis which is located between Agios Stefanos in Sinies and the beach of Avlaki, in the north-eastern part of the island. The position of Erimitis, right across the Albanian shores, exactly in the northern strait of the island, prevented any development or activity in the region which was used by the Venetians for defensive reasons.
