A large tranquil bay north of the town of Igoumenitsa. This bay is also called the ‘dead-bay’ because it is extremely sheltered. This is especially true for the two small coves at the back of the bay. Behind the bay, on the side of the elongated beach, is a large marshy nature preserve. Here you can spot many species of birds, including pelicans, herons etc.
The Nisos Prasoudi island is easily recognisable and lies near the entrance to the bay. One must be cautious when sailing into the bay. Many ferries here sail the Igoumenitsa-Corfu route. Most of these ferries sail between the island and the mainland. Inside the bay you will see the long beach with parasols to the left and several fish farms to the right. Further back in the bay are two smaller coves that are very sheltered and quiet.
