Welcome to Corfu
Stretching 62 km from north to south and home to over 3 million olive trees, Corfu is the second largest of Greece's picturesque Ionian chain. It also boasts a vibrant nightlife.
Whether you prefer lounging by pools, shopping in winding streets or clubbing until dawn, Corfu offers a range of accommodation to suit all tastes. Many hotels are ideally located right by the sea, some catering for adults-only while others are family-friendly.
Top Things In Corfu
An adrenaline-inducing way to explore picturesque Corfu is to hire a quad motorcycle. Whether this means gently traversing cobbled streets, or accelerating along mountainous stretches, rentals are fairly cheap and you can go solo, or hook up with groups.
Enjoy some of Corfu's history with a climb to Theotokos Monastery, perched on a cliff and offering spectacular panoramic views.
The Pink Palace nightclub offers cheap cocktails and the only dress code is beachwear.
Corfu's Easter celebrations are an impressive experience for first time visitors. Blending several religious components, Orthodox, Catholic and pagan, together with elements reflecting the island's historic Venice rule, the party lasts a whole week. Various philharmonic orchestras and choirs parade through streets brilliantly decorated in red cloth. On Holy Saturday, locals enact an ancient custom that involves smashing large clay pots filled with water. Evening fireworks and partying until dawn make this event truly memorable.
Corfu accommodation is available to suit all budgets and tastes. There are luxurious, family-orientated five star hotels, many with spectacular views over the sea to the Greek mainland. Some have their own hairdressing salons or nightclubs. If you are looking for cheap hotels in Corfu, you can score exceptional deals throughout the year as well.
