|You will enjoy swimming at the sandy beach of the settlement, well protected and shallow enough, which makes it popular for families with small children. Apart from some facilities for swimming, sunbathing (sun beds, umbrellas) and sea sport activities, you have also the possibility to rent a small boat and sail to the nearby beaches and the small islets of the area.
If you feel like wandering around, you may visit the scenic village of Avlotes at a distance of 4 kilometers northeastern to Aghios Stefanos; you may enjoy your coffee there or rent a boat and visit the islet of Diaplo, with the small church of Aghios Nicolaos.
You may also sail to the small island of Diakopo and the near by islets of Karavi, Lipso and Plaka. According to the local tradition, these three islands were once a pirate’s ship, its boat and its anchor; Aghios Nicolaos petrified them because the pirates attempted to pillage the small church.
However, if you are not able to sail a boat, you may catch the excursion boat to Ereikoussa, Mathraki and Othoni, the most western part of the Greek territory. It is worth visiting those small islands, not only for some hours, but also for spending there a couple of days. If you are at Aghios Stefanos on the 26th of July, you may attend the local feast (“panighyri”) in honor of Aghia Paraskevi, at the village of Avlotes, 4 kilometers at the Northeast.
In case of health problems a local Medical Center is available at Avlotes, 4 kilometers northeastern to the village.
Access from the capital Corfu, 40 kilometers far away, is very easy by rented or private car and motorbikes. The settlement has a small port with facilities for mooring of small boats and yachts. Excursion boats, sailing daily, can get you to the small beautiful islands of Othoni, Mathraki and Ereikoussa.
