Corfu lies off the west coast of Greece and is a popular holiday destination, thanks to its beautiful Mediterranean climate.
The island is best known for its long stretches of golden beaches and secluded coves and is a sun lover’s paradise. Corfu also boasts lush green hills and countryside, making breathtaking explorations around the island a must-do.
The island has a colourful history with Greek and Roman relics found all over. The capital, Corfu Town, is guarded by two fortresses and packed with history and culture courtesy of its narrow streets and Venetian architecture. Kavos is the party spot of the island, Roda and Sidari with wonderful beaches are real family favourites, while Ipsos-Pygri offers true peace and tranquillity.
The beaches in Corfu are among the best in the Greek Islands, with most of the long sandy beaches lying along the west coast. There are plenty of activities away from the beach with golf, horse riding and mountain biking. The island is also home to the ‘Aqualand waterpark’, one of the largest parks in Europe.
Corfu holidays offer a fascinating Greek island with a smattering of lively resorts and beautiful beaches.
