    The spectacularly shaped Cape Drastis is located on the already beautiful north coast of Corfu. The Cape itself is privately owned - and that's a good thing, because that's how the beautiful nature is preserved. On our round trip you have in different places a great view of the cape and the surrounding cliffs. In between, you wander on narrow farm roads through groves of huge olive trees. For this tour you need sturdy shoes and enough drinking water.Starting point of the hike is a small parking lot at the end of the access road to Cape Drastis. From here a bumpy clay piste continues. On foot that is not a problem, only the small rental cars do not come here. After only a few steps, you are standing at the first vantage point with a magnificent view of the cape. Here it is worthwhile to come early: On the one hand you are alone and on the other long shadows stretch over the cape - a wonderful photo opportunity.On the dusty road it goes downhill. Dense bamboo lines the way and in connection with the clay piste there is a touch of Southeast Asia in the air. On a tight bend you now have the choice: Do you still hike downhill to the coast or do you bang directly into the wild olive forest?The mud track leads in any case even further down to the coast. Here terrace-like rocks invite you to sunbathe and if the sea is calm, you can also get into the water. Freshly cooled, it goes back to the fork in the road and into the dense olive grove.On a narrow and shady path, it goes under huge olive trees uphill. After a while you will find yourself on a gravel path. Turn right to get back to the car park, but our tour will take you to the left. You continue hiking through the olive grove and up to the upper edge of the cliff. From here you have another great view of Cape Drastis.In a round, it goes through a light olive grove and along fruit trees. You meet again on the gravel road and follow him back to the parking lot. Just before you reach the car park, you will find a fork in the road where a narrow path branches off to the left. The path is overgrown in places with scrubby bushes and leads you to a beautiful and secluded vantage point. Here you can also take a break before going back to the car.
