Moraitika
 

Moraitika village is one of the liveliest  tourist resorts of Corfu island and is located in front of a perfect beach. The village is within close proximity to the town of Corfu in a distance of 12 miles from the airport which is located in kanoni village. The main street of Moraitika is a strip of bars, restaurants and shops that straggles for over a kilometre to the junction where the main road veers inland and the Messonghi River just beyond it forms the official boundary with Messonghi.

The older village on the hill on the other end of Moraitika is known as Ano Moraitika which is virtually unspoilt. The tiny houses and alleys overgrown with bougainvillea, are a far cry from the busy , modern strip. Going up the hill you pass the attractive Church of Theotokou Kimiseos with a quaint belfry on the right. There is a great view of the coast from this area.
