Corfu – One in 6000

With approximately 6000 Greek islands and islets to choose from, why Corfu?

Just one of Corfu’s beautiful bays.

Well, it’s a lush green island with white beaches and azure seas, diverse landscapes and a long history, offering lovers of nature, Greek culture and

water sports alike an unforgettable experience.

 

 

 

The coastline provides many ‘wow’ moments, with plunging cliffs, picture-postcard bays and inlets and impossibly blue seas.

Corfu has an enduring relationship with the sea, each sheltered inlet and harbour home to fishing boats or pleasure craft.

You’ll find plenty of choices on offer if you want a trip around Corfu’s dramatic coastline, best viewd from the water.

 

Of course, there are wonderful seafood restaurants, many modestly priced especially away from the resorts.

The mountainous north rolls down towards the south, cypress forests cloaking the hillsides while ancient olive groves and fruit orchards thrive at their feet.

 

 

 

There are walking trails and paths, with the icing on the cake being the Corfu Trail which you can choose to do in part or tackle the whole thing.

 

The ‘main road’ through Ano Korakiana, Corfu.

There’s a sprinkle of ancient, sleepy villages resonating with the island’s long history. If you’re driving yourself through in a hire car, prepare to breathe in!

 

Back in June 2016 we posted ‘Corfu – An Island In Need Of A Good Map’. Good news – here it is!

Just published, this is the perfect map, whatever you plan to do on this lovely Greek island.

Find the best beaches and places of interest. Follow the Corfu Trail in whole or part). IF you plan to drive, this is the most up-to-date map showing all roads and junctions.
