Quick Guide

The north-western Greek island of Corfu rises out of the Ionian sea like the jewel in the crown of the Greek islands. Unlike its Cycladian counterparts, Corfu is not barren and bare and white-washed. It’s rugged. From the rugged emerald hills to the rugged sapphire coastline, this island boasts some of nature’s finest.

If you’re looking for beach resorts, there’s plenty of options to scratch your itch. If you want to get away from the crowds, the island is big enough for that too. There’s still traditional villages and woodlands to explore, particularly in the interior.

Some of the prettiest beaches and villages are to be found on the west coast, where your own vehicle is the best way to get off the beaten path. Ayios Gerogios is one of the most popular beaches. Boasting fine sand and crystal clear waters, it’s hard not be charmed by this picture-perfect bay. Cavos is not only the best place for party-til-dawn nightlife, but for thrill-seekers looking to partake in any water sport imaginable.
