It is named after Cristoforo Condocali, a Venetian statesman who was awarded the estate after his successful participation in the Battle of Lepanto. Kontokali is the first tourist resort you meet travelling from Corfu Town. The small village is centered on a narrow street lined with a few shops, bars, and restaurants. Nightlife is minimal. The lovely sandy beach is a magnet for visitors. This beach belongs to the Kontokali beach hotel but permits other users to use the beach without charge.
