About Corfu

Corfu Greece is one of the most beautiful and romantic islands of the Ionian island group. From lush green hills to noble mansions and from idyllic Corfu beaches, to interesting museums, this island has everything it takes to please any type of traveler. Strongly influenced by the Venetians, the French and the English, Corfu Town is a brilliant base for exploration. Get lost in the narrow cobblestone alleys, the so-called “kandounia”, visit museums, such as the Museum of Asian Art, walk down the famous Liston promenade, stroll around the huge Spianada square… The whole Corfu town squeezes out a nostalgic charm! You’ll see the glorious past of Corfu on imposing palaces, noble mansions, beautiful museums, and charming squares. Moving away from Corfu Town, you’ll discover picturesque seaside villages, tiny verdant islets, luxurious Corfu resorts, and wild natural landscapes. It’s amazing how the different sides of this idyllic island coexist in harmony!

 

Popular Destinations

Kalami

Kalami bay is set nestling below the North East Corfu hills and famous for the Durrel’s ‘White House’ and beautiful beach. Kalami is a popular destination for couples and also suits for family holidays.

Kassiopi

Kassiopi is a lively resort at the North East corner of Corfu. A charming little fishing village, with a traditional port. Tourism has of course had its influence, but you can still find local fishermen bringing home the morning catch down at the harbour.

Roda

Roda is a Corfufishing village and a small family beach resort, it is mostly used by the British package tour operators. There is a super sandy beach. The original town has developed, but you will still find locals continuing their everyday life.

Nissaki

Nissaki means Little Island and hundreds of years ago that is what it was. On top of the island, now stands a Taverna. In years past, the local people worked on this island, shaping stones and local rocks bought to them by boat. The stones were used for building. After many years, the chippings falling into sea formed a ramp and eventually joined the land. Now there is a narrow road that now runs between the old island where the Taverna stands and the mainland. Nissaki has a small beach and is extremely pretty. The beach is a small horseshoe shape with fine pebbles, offering excellent swimming, although it can become a little crowded when daytrip boats arrive for lunch.

Kaminaki

Kaminaki is one of Corfu’s best kept secrets. A tiny breach-fronted village, tucked away amongst the olive groves. The bay is a beautiful well kept secret with sparkling white pebbles and a turquoise water gently lapping against the beach. It is almost a dream and probably the one that many of us have when we picture a small Greek holiday destination. One Taverna sits right on the beach, while another sits up high on the rocks overlooking the bay. The atmosphere is friendly – not dissimilar to other smaller coastal resorts in the area. The local boat hire owners chat to you as you stroll along the waters edge. The bay has remained untouched by tourism.
