Your guide to Corfu
All About Corfu
A haven of history with a wealth of awe-inspiring coastline, Corfu sits just off the shores of mainland Greece and Albania. Locals and visitors alike delight in lazy days at the beaches of Paleokastritsa, Sidari, and Kassiopi, while hikers are spoiled for choice with the island’s mountainous inland terrain. A mix of dense woodland and olive groves cover a significant portion of Corfu, in contrast to lively Corfu Town’s forts, harbour, and old Jewish quarter.
Visitors wanting to get a sense of the island’s history are well served by UNESCO sites, castles, and museums, and wildlife lovers can spot dolphins off the coast and see flamingos at Lefkimmi’s wetlands. While there’s a lot to see and do all over the island, there’s no denying that Corfu’s 200 kilometres of coastline in the Ionian Sea deserve their popularity, offering a stunning mix of pebble shorelines, hidden coves, and blue flag beaches.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Corfu
Like the rest of the country, Easter is big here. Week-long celebrations on Corfu combine solemn religious ceremonies with colourful parades and bountiful feasts. The day before Easter, Holy Saturday is marked by locals throwing pots and vases from their windows to smash them and bring good fortune. Although sunshine is present all year round, the odd spell of rain is still possible at in the height of summer. Island life gets quieter between the onset of autumn and the start of the following summer season — be prepared for a drop-off in amenities and the seasonal closure of some restaurants — but spring is a great time to explore the coast, and September’s temperatures are still very pleasant.
Top things to do in Corfu
Looking for a sweet treat to cap off your evening stroll? Look no further. Loukoumades have a long history in Greece — they’re thought to have been awarded to Olympic champions at the first ever event — and with their irresistible combination of deep-fried dough and local honey, it’s easy to see why.
A secluded beach reached only by boat — who could resist? Start from the village of Agios Stefanos and head along one of the tree-fringed paths into the forest that separates the tiny, unspoiled coves of Cape Erimitis. Tucked away on the northeastern edge of the island, renting a boat is the only way to access some of these scenic spots.
Make your way up to the cliff top for a spectacular panorama of the whole island and admire this lemon-hued monastery draped in bougainvillea. There’s an on-site museum featuring Byzantine artifacts and, as a working monastery, you’re likely to see the resident monks. Make sure you book your visit in advance, though the spot is open weekly to those who wish to experience its historical beauty.
