Corfu is located off the west coast of Greece and enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate during autumn, making it a popular holiday destination. It’s also the perfect time of year for holidaymakers to explore neighbouring islands and other great nearby locations.
Just a couple of miles off the northwest coast of Corfu you’ll find three tiny islands that are a Mediterranean paradise. If you’re looking to escape Corfu for a day then the beaches are tranquil and the surrounding villages are small and picturesque. The easiest way to reach the Diapontia Islands is by ferryboat from Corfu Town.
Paxos is the smallest of the Ionian Islands, lying just 6 miles from the southernmost tip of Corfu. It’s a beautiful island that oozes charm and is carpeted in olive groves that produce some of the best olive oil in Europe.
There are three resorts on Paxos, all with stunning beaches and traditional working harbours. Gaios is the most popular resort for holidaymakers.
