From the small hill known as the Kaiser's Throne one can admire amazing sunset views. Right on this fabulous location you will find some modern ramparts and a car park.

    Enjoy the sunset
    The village with the best sunset in Corfu!!! It is located on the slopes of a hill, almost in the centre of the island. The village itself is not very tourist, but there are two beaches near Pelekas (Agios Gorgis and Pelekas beach) that are among the most tourist places in Corfu. There you will find lots of hotels, seaside taverns and watersports. Very busy in high season, but the landscape close to Pelekas is very green and beautiful. A couple of km north, there is the Valley of Ropa with a large golf ground.
