Still going strong

Corfu has been a favourite with British visitors since the 1980s and its popularity shows no sign of waning. Sun seekers continue to flock 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 the secrets of Corfu’s past.

Beautiful beaches

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.

Sidari

With its Blue Flag beach status and lively after-hours scene, it’s no wonder Sidari is still one of the most popular spots in Corfu.

Kavos

Like to dance the night away after a lazy afternoon on the beach? Kavos could be ideal for you.

Kassiopi

Located on Corfu’s northern coast, the village of Kassiopi blends old and new.

Corfu Town

If you like to be at the heart of the action, Corfu town’s the place to be.

Roda

Roda is a small fishing town with a big heart – just the right mix of traditional Greek hospitality and home comforts, with spectacular views across the Ionian Sea.

Acharavi

In case the incredible 3km stretch of soft sandy beach wasn’t enough, Acharavi also has loads to offer in the way of shops, restaurants and surrounding sights.

Beaches

For a classic day on the beach, head to the sweeping Golden Bay – close to Mellieha, it’s gifted with soft, dusty sand and shallow water that’s suited to paddling. Mellieha Bay has a great stretch, too. So if you’re after a bit of choice, Malta’s got it in spades.

Activities

Families flock to wild waterparks, with one major draw sitting between Sliema and St Paul’s Bay. And watersports are big, especially in Qawra and Bugibba, where a sheltered bay keeps the waves really calm for water-skiing and banana boats. Exploring the little towns and waterside paths is essential.

Traditional meals here are all about freshly-netted seafood. Most Maltese places do their own version of a tasty fish pie, keeping homely touches on tap. And if you’re in search of bags of flavour, garlic-packed stews are big around here. It’s all finished off with the local tipple – prickly-pear liqueur.
