The Venetian shipyard built by the Venetians during their rule of Corfu on the west side of what used to be called Govino Bay, the current location of the modern village of Gouvia. The remains of the old arsenal still exist at the Bay of Gouvia, and are located approximately 8 km from Corfu city. The ruins are behind the modern marina of the port of Gouvia and are separated from it by an iron fence.
The Venetians used the bay as a port and their arsenal was built near the water. The Venetian shipyard features three arched docks which were used to service their two fleets which were stationed in Corfu. The columns, walls and arches of the arsenal survive almost intact but the roof is missing.

The use of the arsenal was officially discontinued when the Treaty of Campo Formio, which was signed on 18 October 1798, signalled the end of the Venetian Republic. Admiral Ushakov landed his troops at the site of the arsenal and created a military camp there during the Siege of Corfu in 1798. The arsenal also functioned as a base for the French in 1917–1918.

From Gouvia to Agni Bay

The northeast coast of Corfu is renouned for its stunning beauty. Numerous, crystal clear bays mark the island’s topography,

while tree-covered mountains rise quickly above the coastline, ascending to Mount Pantocrator, Corfu’s highest point, at 906 metres above sea level.
From Gouvia Bay to Barbati,

from Kalami and scenic Kouloura to Agni Bay, the water and sky are infinitely blue and the landscape is green and dramatic.
There is no better way to experience the beauty of this coastline than from a private boat, sailing at your leisure in calm waters under warm sunshine.

The Islet of Vidos opposite Corfu: The islet of Vidos lies right opposite Corfu town. This islet is small in size but has yet many special types of flora and fauna around it, thus it is protected as a nature reserve. In the ancient times, this island was known as Ptyhia or the island of Hera. A strong fort, also used as a prison, was built there by the French but was destroyed by the British. It is said that some underwater tunnels, constructed by the French, used to connect Vidos islet and the four fortresses of Corfu. A Serbian mausoleum also stands close to the small port of Vidos in the memory of the thousands of Serbian soldiers, who had died due to starvation and plague on Corfu in the First World War and were buried there. An outdoor cafeteria and tavern offers refreshment drinks and delicious meals, while you enjoy the view of Corfu town. There are some beaches around the islet, suitable for swimming. You can take any path you like after reaching the islet and you are bound to find one. In summer, a camping site for children works there. Small boats connect the old port of Corfu town, right in front of the Court House, to Vidos. Boats leave very frequently, almost every half an hour, and the trip takes about 10 minutes. Some diving centers also organize diving excursions around the coasts of Vidos islet. Source: www.greeka.com
