  • Overview

    Corfu, the best known and 2nd largest Ionian island, is covered with slender cypress trees, millions of olive trees and an abundance of fresh produce including tomatoes, herbs, lemons, kumquats and olives. Due to its strategic importance, it is steeped in history from successive occupations by Romans, Sicilians, Venetians and the French, plus the British who left behind a fascinating legacy of brass bands, cricket and ginger beer.

    With a succession of occupiers putting their own signature on the area, the island enjoys a rich and interesting culture, which visitors can explore. With a variety of culinary delicacies, lively entertainment and astounding architectural accomplishments, the mix of diverse cultural influences within the Greek way of life is evident.

    Corfu’s coastline stretches for more than 200km, with fabulous sweeping bays, secluded coves, and beautiful golden sand, shingle or pebble beaches leading to crystal clear azure waters; Blue Flag Glyfada on the west coast is considered to be the top beach in the whole of Greece.

    Explore the north of the island, with its welcoming pebble beaches and panoramic mountains. In the south you’ll find sandier beaches, and a quieter more restful atmosphere, free from the main tourist attractions.

    Take a trip to the traditional fishing village of Benitses where you’ll find ancient, picturesque streets, or the beautiful village of Nymfes surrounded by hills and waterfalls. Visit the impressive public space that is the Spianáda Park, or wander around the Old Fortress to soak up some more history.

    The island is the ideal place to take a holiday of any kind, whether you’re looking for a group, family or couple’s getaway. Its natural resources lend themselves to adventure and exploration from diving to mountain climbing, while its beaches are perfect for long days and sunbathing punctuated by delicious seafood at the many high-quality eateries. For kids, there are plenty of fun-filled days out to enjoy, such as water parks, pony trekking and spotting colourful marine life on a glass-bottomed boat. Both fun and relaxation await you on the island of Corfu.
