Sandy beaches, sleepy villages and some of the best nightlife in Greece; Corfu holidays have all the bases covered for couples and families alike. Hidden among olive groves, cypress trees and wild flowers are a host of beautiful resorts like Roda, with welcoming hotels and beaches galore. Experience the island’s vibrant colours as you stroll through Corfu Town’s cobbled streets and pass by pastel-coloured architecture. The purple-pink sunsets will take your breath away. From north to south, east to west, there’s plenty to explore on the Emerald Isle, the greenest, most luscious island in the North Ionian Sea.

Things to do

Whether you want exploration, relaxation or a night on the tiles, holidays to Corfu offer something for everyone. Head along the winding mountain pass to Mount Pantokrator in north-eastern Corfu to reach the highest point of the island. You can explore the traditional villages hidden amid the steep slopes on your way up to the summit. Elsewhere, you can get a real feel for the island’s history and culture; explore its rich Greek, Venetian, and British heritage with a tour of age-old castles and fortresses. After dark, one of Europe’s top clubbing resorts comes to life in a big way; Kavos is absolutely brimming with lively bars and restaurants for your enjoyment. Or head a little further up to the coast to Ipsos and Dasia for a more relaxed evening.

Where to stay

Located on the north coast of Corfu, Sidari is popular with families and couples for its untouched, natural beauty. Sugar-coloured rock formations leading into the sea create lots of little isolated beaches giving you that holiday V.I.P. feel. Close by, you’ll find the charming fishing village of Aghios Stefanos. Its golden beach is nestled by lush scenery on the one side and drenched by the calm Adriatic Sea waters on the other. Or, if you’re looking for a buzzing post-exam paradise, Kavos is your place. From 90s floor-fillers to the best House music and Dubstep around, you’ll never want to leave.
