Exquisite Corfu is said to have been blessed by Mother Nature herself- not hard to believe once you experience its breathtaking beauty.

Description

Lush green mountains fringe wide expanses of lovely beaches, and wherever you go, you can swim in balmy, crystal clear waters. So why not see as much of this wonderful island as you can, and sample more than one of its beautiful beaches?

For example, there’s Pelekas, where you can enjoy golden sands by day and magnificent sunsets at night – climb the hill to the village and sit outside the taverna with a cocktail to toast the setting rays. Paleokastritsa boasts FOUR sand and shingle beaches, and is world-famous for its traditional charm, natural beauty and amazing clear waters.

Swim the Canal d’Amour at Sidari and legend promises you’ll find the love of your life. And beach lovers and families alike will love Roda, with its welcoming restaurants and tavernas and safe and shallow waters.

Away from the beaches, enjoy a visit to Kassiopi, to soak up the atmosphere in the village square. And be sure to explore Corfu Old Town for some excellent shopping as well as the chance to enjoy its beautiful UNESCO-listed buildings and the ambience of the numerous cafes, bars and restaurants.

Corfu holidays are perfect for families, as well as young crowds looking for a chance to party in paradise. Whichever side of Corfu you'd like to explore on your Greek holiday, you'll find sightseeing trips to ensure that you get the most out of Greece's 'Emerald Island'.

Fun Excursions During Corfu Holidays

Kalypso Star and Corfu Town: Experience the magic of the capital of the island, meander through the cobbled streets of Corfu Town and then marvel at the underwater delights on our glass bottom boat.

Paxos and Anti Paxos: Sail the Ionian Sea to these tranquil islands where unforgettable crystal waters slap the harbour fronts. Enjoy the untouched scenery and the opportunity to swim in some of the most inviting waters in Greece.

Paxos and Parga - Double delight: Sail the Ionian Sea to the mainland of Greece to the village of Parga which traditionally has been protected by the Venetian castle. Explore the quaint village or simply relax in one of the chic cafe bars on the front. Then onto something completely different - the island of Paxos. Virtually untouched by tourism, this is an organic island with some of the most outstanding scenery in all of Greece.

Albania Cruise: Discover a land that is so very different to that of Europe. Just a short boat journey yet years away is Albania. Visit the ruins of Butrint with our guide or simply explore on your own.
