Agni bay is the first of the anchorages on the NE tip of Corfu, heading N from Corfu Town. The S part of the bay is lined with tavernas, some with long jetties to the end of which a yacht may anchor and take a line with care. Most yachts tend to anchor off in depths of 8.0 – 10 metres. It is also possible to take a long line ashore on the S side, but this will leave you beam on to any swell. The holding is good in sand, mud and weed. Shelter is good from the prevailing NW winds, but, like all the anchorages along this coast, it is open E and S and is likely to be untenable in strong winds from that quarter. Also, like all the others, it is subject to swell from passing ferries and ships. Alternatively, it is possible to anchor with care off the small beach at the N end of Agni Bay. There is really only room for one yacht to anchor fore and aft here in 7.0 – 8.0 metres, but 2-3 can fit in if they each take a line ashore to the E side of the cove (the W side is steep-to and there is little to take a line to). Be careful to avoid the small mooring buoys used by visiting day boats. Depths here are 3.0 – 3.5 metres at 10 metres off the rocks. The holding is good in sand and weed once your anchor is through the weed. There is a cliff path from here round to the tavernas at the S end of the bay. Shelter is good from the prevailing winds, although an occasional heavy swell enters from passing ships.
