Things to do in Corfu
Corfu holidays offer a range of things to do in a variety of resorts. While younger holidaymakers might rush off to sip freedom in the party-orientated city of Kavos, Kassiopi attracts adventure-seekers with a similar buzz. In Kassiopi pebbly beaches jutting out into rocky coves and bays are just as common as tavernas, clubs and music bars. Fancy a taste of local heritage and culture on your Corfu holiday? Kassiopi Castle is just the ticket.
Soaking up the sun on one of Corfu’s beaches is just as good as venturing down a trail into the cool of a pine forest, all thanks to Corfu’s northern location. With views of the Albanian coast, Acharavi is a top choice for a beach holiday. For a classic Greek island feel and picturesque beaches on your holiday in Corfu, Aghios Nikolaos ticks the boxes. For a mix of great beaches and an awesome evening atmosphere, Sidari is one of our favourite destinations. Kavos Beach is popular with the younger crowd, and if you're looking for a party, you'll find it here.
You will find that the weather in Corfu is great for both action-packed holidays and sightseeing alike. Chapels, forts and palaces challenge long stretches of beaches in a battle for your attention, making both culture and nature the two main reasons why a holiday in Corfu is a must.
Top Corfu beaches
The island has all the makings of a beach lover’s paradise, especially in the summer months. When's best to go on holiday to Corfu? Travel in early June or late September and you can enjoy slightly cooler climes, and the island has plenty of places to satisfy your inner beach bum’s holiday needs.
For a holiday that makes the most of the coast, the former fishing village Roda proves to be among the most popular with sand-seekers. There are all sorts of ways to keep busy in Roda, many of which include making a splash, of course! Quad bike safaris, cycling, horse riding and fishing, along with boat trips and water sports are up for grabs for an all-round experience.
For activities, you'll want to check out Gouvia (head here for beach-based nightlife, too!) or Dassia. Fans of sandy beaches choose the town of Aghios Gordios mainly for its coastal views. This is also where active adventurers make the most of the scenery while having a blast on a motorbike or taming the waves from the safety of a hired boat. Other top favourites include Acharavi, Sadari and Aghios Nikolaos, all with that Ionian Sea lapping at their shores.
