Corfu

Corfu holidays

This popular, emerald-green isle is a classic crowd-pleaser with something for everyone. Miles of sun-kissed sands, friendly locals and plenty of places to party add up to the classic holiday package. Night owls have been flocking to Kavos and Sidari for years, while elegant Corfu Town's the place to go for a pinch of history and dash of nightlife chic. Bit of a beach bum? Soft white sand and warm blue waters come as standard here – try the tranquil pace of Agios Ioannis on for size. Away from the buzz of the beach resorts, there’s a beautiful countryside studded with olive groves all set for exploring too.

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.

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 Holidays

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

You’ll find golden sands galore at the beaches surrounding Sidari, Acharavi and St George South. Sink your toes into unspoiled stretches on the island and top spots for windsurfing and other active watersports, too. Take a seat and stay long enough to watch the sun go down on these glorious patches.
