Gouvia / 39°39.5′N, 19°51.5′E


 



Gouvia Bay is located five nM north of Corfu town and features a Venetian arsenal of 1716. One can climb to the summit of Mount Pantokrator for a beautiful view of the surroundings and an abandoned monastery of 1347. The village of Kondokali - adjacent to Gouvia - is nowadays more German or English than Greek. Fortunately, the facilities are excellent. Yachts are not permitted to anchor in the bay, but may anchor in the bay of Ormos Kommeno immediately N of the entrance to Gouvia Bay. The location is convenient for visiting the Port Police in the nearby Gouvia Marina and also for the chandleries, shops, laundry outside the marina. Depths generally 6.0 – 10.0 metres. Holding is good in mud and weed. The anchorage is subject to water skiers and other power boats from the hotel at the east end of the bay. Gouvia Marina, one of the oldest in Greece, is the safest place to leave the boat for any period and explore this lush island.
