Seeing the north east coast of Corfu by boat is an absolute essential part of your holiday. It is truly a magical experience.

Asterios Boats is a family run business based in Kaminaki.

We (Anna and Stros) were the first people to rent small boats in Corfu and started our business in 1978.

No-one can deny that there have been changes in the island’s way of life but the incredible natural beauty of this green and fertile island remains un-blemished. One thing that hasn’t changed is the beauty of Corfu’s coastline, with stunning views over to Albania and the wonderful sense of freedom when you are out on the water dropping anchor wherever and whenever you want.

There are numerous secluded coves ideal for a picnic, swimming and sunbathing or stopping at a beach-side taverna for lunch – imagine having a total feeling of independence at being able to choose how you want to spend your day.

Some people who come to Kaminaki choose to rent a boat for their entire holiday instead of a car. It seems that a lot of people spend an awful amount of time driving whilst at home and to just be able to boat up and down, do your shopping, go to the ATM machine, buy your newspaper, have lunch or a drink all without stepping into a car is a true holiday for a lot of people.

Boat hire really is the only way to see this fantastic coastline and there are no traffic jams or parking tickets to worry about !!
