Corfu has a wealth of wonderful places to visit from the Old Town with its stunning Venetian architecture and fortified walls to the Monastry of Pantokrator with its breath-taking panoramic views of the island and beyond.
The northeast coast has many pretty coastal villages with plenty of great restaurants where you can enjoy fresh fish dishes just metres from the glass-clear sea. Our favourites are Kerisia, Agni and Kalami (home of the actual Durrells house ‘The White House’) but there are literally dozens of small bays with unspoilt beaches to explore.
To the northwest of the island you’ll find both a rocky coast and some sweeping sandy beaches. In the area around Palaiokastritsa there’s great snorkelling, plenty of beach bars and restaurants plus some fabulous views. For people who enjoy hiking you can also enjoy peaceful walks through olive groves as you make your way to Angelokastro an ancient castle with stunning sea views.
To the southeast of the island a coastal road takes you through many delightful seaside villages and you’ll find a mixture of sandy and pebbly beaches. A great place to meander, stopping off at roadside cafes to take in the views and enjoy a cooling dip in the sea.
In the area to the southwest of the island you can find the inland Lake Korrisson and surrounding nature reserve which is a birdwatches delight. This part of the island boasts long sandy beaches some with funky beach bars and a party vibe and some quiet, almost deserted and serene – whatever suits your mood.
There’s far too many stunningly beautiful places to visit on Corfu, there’s far too many great places to eat and drink, far too many great places to get lost in tranquillity… so for the best advice talk to us and we’ll make the best suggestions to help you gain the maximum from your stay on the island.
