Gouvia (Yacht Marina)

Gouvia, a small former fishing village has been developed throughout the last four decades into a modern holiday resort. Ideal for couples and families visiting the island of Corfu, it provides an up to date and secure place for vacation. The resort is located 7km north of Corfu town, on the east coast and has been popular since the 70s to people coming from most of the European countries. Gouvia is set on a bay and offers a pebble beach and large variety of hotels, bars, restaurants and shops. In Gouvia there is the largest marina of Corfu island. Gouvia position in a natural harbour made it an ideal location for a shipyard, this was exploited during the Venetian occupation, when they built their arsenal in the village. The remains of it today are notable in the area. One of the most picturesque spots is the Church of Ypapanti, which pokes out into the water on a peninsula-style island. Finally in Gouvia is the Serbians Monument, at the place where the Serbian allied army disembarked from 6 Jan. 1916 to 5 Apr. 1916.
