Agni Bay is one of the most popular spots on the North East of Corfu island.
It is only 24 kms away from the town and the airport, easily accessible by boat or car, even though the road is quite steep.
Agni is a small traditional neighborhood of Gimari community, set in a very picturesque bay with amazing views and features three tavernas, a couple of boat hire companies and a coffee-bar.
The place is rather modest and peaceful.The bay can get crowded with yachts and posh boats especially during daytime.
Some of the tavernas are offering a sea taxi transfer and it is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday away from them all.
Quite a few villas are spread on the slopes of the surrounding hills and a lot of trails are offering hiking opportunities to the adjacent bays or Gimari village.

Culture and History
On the 21st of May is the name day of Saints Constantine and Helen. The locals celebrate the name day of the Saints with a festival in the back yard of the church. There is plenty of food with "souvlaki" or grilled lamb and soft drinks, retsina wine or beers. The people are dancing to traditional Corfiot and Greek songs played by a live band.
During the summer season, the festival of pie is organized at the same place. Local ladies are cooking their own pie recopies and offer them for free to everyone joining the party with a local band and traditional dances.
Every year the locals organize a Varcarola festival in Kalami. This is an old Corfiot event, where small boats, decorated with lights, sail along Kalami bay as the choirs of the Municipality sing traditional Corfiot songs called "cantades".
