History
The resorts on the East coast of Corfu were some of the first to welcome the tour operators in the 1970’s and grew accordingly to accommodate the increasing numbers of tourists flocking to the Island.

These days many of the late night clubs and music bars have closed down and the resorts have returned to a more family friendly place to spend your holiday.

Today, the added bonus of Moraitika is the close proximity to the beautiful old village of Ano Moraitika. Cross the main road and head up the hill to see how Greek village life goes on as it has for centuries.
