The ever-popular island of Corfu has been a playground for Greece-loving Brits for decades. Miles of golden sands, friendly locals and plenty of places to party (hello, Kavos!) add up to the classic holiday package. And as a smallish island, nowhere’s out of reach, so it’s really easy make the most of your time here and pack in all the best bits. Just make sure cosmopolitan Corfu Town, Sidari’s shorefront and Mirtiotissa Beach are all top of your list! Corfu’s not nicknamed the ‘Emerald Isle’ for nothing either, so get out and explore its olive-strewn countryside.
In contrast to the clubs of neon-soaked Kavos, there’s the tranquil pace of Roda and Agios Ioannis to try. Meanwhile, fun-loving Sidari shows off a lively Blue Flag beach with water sports by day, and a vibrant atmosphere by night. In Dassia, a woodland-backed beach meets traditional tavernas. And you’re in for a treat along the UNESCO-stamped cobbles of Corfu Town thanks to its very Venetian flavour.
Away from the buzz of the beach resorts, there are lots of natural wonders to discover. The Blue Caves and Caribbean-like beaches of Antipaxos are must-sees for starters. Inland, the countryside is studded with endless olive groves and ancient monasteries to explore. For epic views of Mount Pantokrator, head to Kassiopi.
An all-ages appeal
Families flock to Aqualand for the world’s third largest wave pool and a big choice of super-charged slides. Further north, Pyramid Adventure Park has mini-golf and go-karts to keep you entertained. History buffs – check out the Byzantine castle Angelokastro. Add to that boat trips, beach barbecues and harbourside meze – it’s the good life all the way around these silky shores.
