The Kavos strip is undeniably the place to be, and where you will spend the majority of your holiday, day or night. The majority of the goings on in Kavos all happen along the strip so make sure you get your hotel booked in a hotel that’s close. Shops, pre-drink bars, restaurants, clubs, arenas, it’s all there. You literally could not get lost if you stick to this road.
The whole strip is about 2km long with a lot of things to do and a lot of places to choose from. But you’ll soon get to know your favourite bars and become regulars there on your holiday. Take a read for all the info you need to know about Kavos.
Where is the Kavos Strip?
The Kavos strip is located in the south of the island of Corfu, when looking for holidays make sure you get hotels that are close to the strip, as there are some that are a little further out. Kavos is around an hour drive from Corfu airport. Be aware that some transfers may take longer if there’s a few drop offs!
If you arrive late at night you’ll see the nightlife in full swing as the coach goes down the strip. Party goers on the strip all run to the coach and bang on the sides like scenes from Billy Elliot, and this is where the atmosphere begins! If you haven’t got transfers booked you can get them at the airport (depending on time of day) or you can get a taxi, the taxi will be between 80 -100 euros, but if you have a group to fill a taxi you could split the cost.
Don’t worry about getting lost, everything you need is all on the one main road, with the beach just adjacent. You’ll also get maps an information from your reps when you arrive in resort.

The Kavos Strip by Day
The Kavos strip by day will be a little bit different to how you remember it from the night before with most of the focus being on shops and restaurants. Shopping, get some food and do some water-sports on the beach, these are just some of the things you can get up in the days.
Chilled days are a must in Kavos as the Kavos nightlife is in a world of its own. The beach runs just next to the strip. So you’ll always have access to the beach! Top up the tan and relax throughout the day, nothing shifts the hangover like a bit of fresh beach air. Or even chill at your hotel pool and get to know those on holiday at the same time as you.
Or if you are wanting to continue your antics into the day head down to quayside hotel pool where there is always an atmosphere, day or night.

The Kavos Strip by Night
The Kavos nightlife is the reason you came to Kavos. As soon as the sun starts to set and daytime rolls into evening the strip literally comes alive. The atmosphere will be buzzing with people often dancing in the open bars and spilling out on to the street. Just be aware that the Kavos strip doesn’t close to traffic at night so there are often cars, bikes an coaches going up and down so make sure you’re cautious of these. The road isn’t very wide so the reps will do their best to keep you to the side when there’s ongoing traffic, they’re not being boring, and they’re just doing their jobs in keeping you safe – so please listen to them. Nobody wants to end up in the medical centre.
Penalty shootouts, bars galore and lights and music coming from every angle. It is literally LIT from top to bottom.

If you’re starting at Quayside at the bottom of the strip this should be your next stop for sure.

The buzz at 42nd street can be seen all the way through the bar. It can even be felt from the people spilling out on to the strip. This bar will have you jumping around from the minute you get in until the minute you leave.
If you’re into your cheesy classics and enjoy shouting Mr Brightside as loud as you can then make sure you give BuzzPop bar a visit.
