Mount Pantokrator, Corfu

4.5
#2 of 9 in Nature in Corfu
Capture magnificent views of the surrounding islands from the top of Mount Pantokrator, the highest point on the island. Visit the monastery located at the summit, walk around the courtyard, and stop for refreshments at the nearby cafe. Be on the lookout for owls hopping around on the rocks at the summit. Walk or drive up the winding road leading to the peak, but avoid the journey if you have a fear of heights, as the drive up is steep with mountain drops down the side. Parking is available at the summit for your convenience. Be sure to remember your sunscreen, as the sun can be strong at this elevation.

  • A tour in the North of the island during a jeep safari, allowed us to discover Mt. Pantokrator... Beautiful landscapes, the splendid views to the coasts of Albania... A day of discovery in the hollow of the nature that is not ready to forget...

  • Beautiful view of the sea and Albania. It is worth spending time here. It is best to arrive early in the morning to get to the top.
  • Highest point in Corfu and the views are stunning. Interesting drive up to it as well. Cannot quite believe why they put a bright red super tall mast right in middle of the monastery grounds. Shame as it's a bit of a blot. Otherwise it's a totally great place to go for a full view of the island. Hold onto your hats going up.
  • Traveled from Saint George in the southern part of Corfu! Always seen this mountain from Corfu town and thought that looks good! So hired a quad bike and hit the road! Definitely worth the 1 hour accent to the top and so amazing views.
  • Fantastic view and great trip to get there. On the summit you can have a coffee and enjoy Corfu from all directions
  • As for me, absolutely no 1 throughout the island. It is best to get to the top of the rental car. Unforgettable views of the entire island, and Albania.
