Corfu is the most popular of Greece’s Ionian Islands and it’s easy to see why. Steeped in history and traditional Greek culture, it’s also celebrated as being the greenest island too. Think lush vegetation; stunning hidden bays and coves; and whitewashed fishing villages flecked along the coast. If you want a holiday that blends history and tradition with great beaches and a vibrant nightlife, then look no further than what Corfu holidays have to offer.
As previously mentioned, Corfu is a stunning green island, boasting breathtaking views and spectacular scenery around every corner. Whether you spend your time in the larger resorts or visiting the quieter local towns and villages, you’ll be blown away by the island’s natural beauty. Be sure not to miss some of the best views of the island from spots such as the old fortress in Corfu Town or the monastery at Paleokastritsa.
Sleepy Greek villages might not be for everyone. Well, this need not be a problem as Corfu has a much livelier and vibrant side to it too. If you’re travelling as a couple or with a group of friends and you want to be able to party the night away until the sun comes up, then Kavos is the place for you. Its lively strip is lined with bars and clubs with enticing music pouring out of them. But if you’re after somewhere a little less wild, Sidari also offers a great selection of bars to enjoy a few drinks in an evening.
Great for families
The island of Corfu is a great family holiday destination for a number of reasons. The choice of hotels and resort facilities means that you can easily stay in one place, should you choose to. But if you want to get out and explore the island, it’s easy to travel around and see what other resorts and villages have to offer too. Corfu boasts extremely clean and safe beaches, ideal for spending long summer days with the little ones. And for more fast-paced fun, there is the excellent Aqualand waterpark located just 20 minutes from Sidari.
