Corfu is the aristocratic island of the Ionian sea. The mythical island of Corfu magnetizes every traveler who visits it.
Rich cultural heritage, wonderful architecture, riveting nature and idyllic beaches are some of the elements that make it special!
Pontikonisi, the cosmopolitan Paleokastritsa, Mon Repo, Achillion and a host of other attractions will take you to another era when knights, aristocrats and princesses roamed the cobbled streets of the island.
Romantic Corfu is waiting for you to explore.
The capital of the island is an open-air museum full of elements of Greek and Western architecture that take you back in time. The old town, “Xopoli”, with its historic center has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Take a tour of the narrow cobbled cantonments with their colorful laundry, admire the imposing houses with Venetian architecture and relax in the small squares that mushroom here and there. Feel an aristocrat in Spianada Square with the imposing Liston, a complex of buildings with French architecture and impressive arches and have fun in the secular bars of the island.
Apart from the city, however, the hinterland of Corfu also hides small treasures. Visit the villages of the island such as Agios Stefanos, the picturesque Kaminaki, Kalami and Afionas that will magnetize you with their simplicity. Palia Perithia, the “ghost village”, the traditional settlement of Sinarades, Agios Matthaios with the stone mansions and the fishing village of Kassiopi are suitable for endless hours of exploration!
In Corfu you will find some of the most beautiful beaches of the Ionian. Halikounas, the largest beach on the island, is located along the lagoon of Korissia and its endless sandy beach looks like a desert! Next to the lagoon of Korissia you will meet Issos with the impressive cedar forest. Paleokastritsa with its crystal clear waters and rich vegetation is one of the most cosmopolitan beaches as well as Glyfada near the city and Agios Gordios. If you are looking for peace and seclusion, we recommend Rovinia with its white pebbles and turquoise waters and Stellari the exotic desert beach with the lush landscape. But we kept the best for you for the end! The Canal d’amour is one of the most beautiful beaches of Corfu. The sea has done its miracle and has created a thin strip of shore on the sandstone rocks, caves and passages that make the landscape magical!
TIP: Corfu is ideal for holidays during the Carnival where events similar to the Venice Carnival are organized but also for the Easter period where you will meet the impressive custom of breaking the jugs. All the festivities on the island are accompanied by the sounds of the Philharmonic Orchestra!
