Introducing Corfu Holidays

Tucked away amidst the shimmering Ionian Sea, a Corfu holiday for 2020 will be chock full of cypress trees, olive groves, dramatic coastlines, and rustic stone buildings; finished with a deep blue sky. Due to its rolling green hills and abundance of olive patches, Corfu has the curious nickname ‘the Emerald Isle’ (which it shares with the island of Ireland, our neighbours will be tickled to discover). But what really gives this idyllic island an air of mystery is not just its spellbinding scenery or laid back way of life, but its intricate roots with classical Greece. For millennia, Corfu has been famed for its culture, art and education; qualities which can still be seen today in both the ancient architecture and sophisticated lifestyles of the locals. Like many other islands in the Mediterranean and elsewhere, watersports, sailing and other seaside activities are among some of the top pastimes in Corfu. A veritable paradise island, Corfu has its very own sea school offering sailing lessons for all skill levels and motorboats for hire, should you fancy a day trip out on the gentle waves or open sea. Also available are cruises around the neighbouring islands and beyond the dramatic cliffs and coves of the coastline are also popular daytime excursions during down time. If topping up your tan is imperative on this trip, Corfu also has around 57 glittering beaches to relax on when you want to get back on dry land.

Holidays to Corfu are all about simplicity and relaxation; and the locals will surely be inclined to agree with this sentiment. Many visitors every year are amazed to discover that the island has a distinct Italian flavour, due to its close proximity to its Mediterranean neighbour. The cuisine in Corfu is a fusion of typical Greek favourites, with deliciously fresh olives and feta on every menu, paired with some Italian classics such as tomatoes, pasta and herbs. Watching the sun sink into the glistening azure ocean as you chow down on mouth-watering dishes is one of the sweetest pleasures of life on the island... or life in general! If you feel the need for speed on your holiday, the undulating landscape in the southern part of Corfu is perfect for mountain biking. If you’d prefer to take in the scenery at a more manageable pace, ambling through olive groves and cypress trees is a peaceful way to experience the countryside. The popular northern coastline is bursting at the seams with lively towns like Kassiopi be sure to brush shoulders with the jovial locals who are always willing to share a story or two. Whatever you do, be sure to soak up some of the ever present classical history of the island; weeks could easily be spent wandering through the old ruins, lost in the world of the ancient Greeks.

Beaches

Beaches

The most bustling resorts on the island are located along the north coast. If competitive prices and water sports aplenty are what you want from Corfu holidays, set out for the sun-blessed resort of Acharavi. Such is the staggering beauty of this Ionian gem; it has the largest native population outside of the island's capital and is a great option for couples and families looking to seamlessly adapt to the relaxed way of life in Corfu. If it’s five star luxury and pampering you’re after, you’ll be spoilt for choice over on the east coast in Corfu Town, alongside the glamorous marina. Many of the best beaches on the Ionian Islands awarded with European Union’s prestige Blue Flag distinction can be found in Corfu. The best of them are mostly located on the west side of the island. Agios Stefanos is a long sandy stretch located in a quaint fishing village. The slick Glyfada beach is located just 15 km from Corfu Town, with shimmering azure waters, golden sandy crescents and beach bars galore. Agios Georgios is a beautiful sandy beach with all the usual amenities you’d expect. Kavos beach southeast of Corfu Town is a sure favourite of the younger sets who flock to the late night bars until the wee hours.
