Kavos holidays

On the southern top of Corfu, you’ll discover the island’s clubbing capital. Kavos holidays are perfect for a fast-paced mix of vibrant bars, late-night clubs and high-octane water sports. And when you’re ready to relax, there’s an 8km stretch of sandy beach to enjoy while you soak up the sun, plus plenty of bars and cafés for a pitstop. You’ll also find Aqualand water park nearby (a great place to cool down on a hot day), while historic Corfu Town is easily within day trip distance (it’s less than an hour away by car). 

Things to do

You’ll want to sample the unbeatable nightlife on a Kavos holiday, including the famous main strip with its bars, pubs and clubs. During the day, you can work on your tan on the long, sandy beach. When you’re ready to take things up a notch, it’s time for water sports; this is one of the best places for them on Corfu. Boat trips are a brilliant way to spend an afternoon; just grab a drink and stretch out on the deck. As for day trips, you’ll have plenty of choice; how about a trip to Aqualand or an outing to Corfu Town? 

 

Excellent beaches

Kavos’ long stretch of golden sand gets about as much attention from tourists as the many bars in the resort. That’s because it’s no secret that the gorgeous crystal clear water and spectacular views make it the perfect place to relax and recover after the previous late night.

Experience Greece

Kavos’ coastal location in Corfu makes it the ideal destination to island hop and experience what the rest of Greece has to offer. Pop over to the small islands of Paxos and Antipaxos for quiet beaches and traditional cuisine. There’s no better place to escape the hustle and bustle and live a life of Greek luxury for a day.

Vibrant nightlife

With its energetic lifestyle and buzzing nightlife, Kavos is Corfu’s favourite party destination. Join hundreds of people down on the strip for action-packed events, special DJ sets and unforgettable party memories. There are a variety of bars and clubs to choose from, all ready and waiting for you to soak up the upbeat, feel-good atmosphere.

Food and drink

Greece is notorious for its great cuisine, so why not try some of the excellent traditional meals on offer. Eat the delicious, grape leaf-wrapped rice parcel called dolmades, nibble on fresh feta filo pie or indulge in a chicken kebab with tzatziki dip. All of which go perfectly with a nice glass of cold Ouzo. Delicious!
