Northeast Corfu is characterized by the beautiful beaches of the east coast (Pitamos, Gouvia, Dassia, Kommeno, Barbati), continuing with Mount Pantokrator, and the villages Kassiopi and Acharavi on the very north. Northwest Corfu faces the Diapontia Islands and is known for the beach of Sidari. It covers the wider area of Paleokastritsa, many mountainous villages like Scripero, Kyprianades and Nymphes, where kumquat is grown predominantly, as well as coastal villages like Roda, Arillas and Peroulades.
