Still going strong
Corfu has been a favourite with Brits since the 1980s and its popularity shows no sign of waning. Sun seekers continue to head to the beaches of Sidari, and Kavos still thrums to the sound of party beats. The cultural sites are a magnet for history lovers looking to uncover Corfu’s past, but don’t miss a stroll around cosmopolitan Corfu Town.
Corfu’s beaches are some of the best in Greece, especially the ones along the west coast where the golden sands are at their softest. Many of the beaches are nice and wide so there’s plenty of room for everyone. The sand is golden, the sea glistens and the surrounding scenery is second to none.
A rural retreat
Away from the coast Corfu is surprisingly green, with hillsides carpeted in olive groves. In the more remote corners of the island the locals still celebrate the changing seasons with religious festivals and fairs. Despite being home to a handful of lively resorts, you’ll also find Corfu a peaceful place for a relaxing retreat.
