The most northerly of the Ionian islands off mainland Greece, Corfu attracts many British holidaymakers each year for its glistening beaches and lively resorts. It is often referred to as the ‘emerald isle’ due to the green landscape populated by olive groves, wild fauna and dotted with quaint little Greek villages. Whether you want to spend your holiday lazing on golden beaches, exploring mountainous terrain, enjoying watersports or marveling at ancient historical sites, you are sure to have a fantastic holiday in Corfu.

Families and couples alike will love the stunning beaches of Sidari with secluded coves to discover and shallow, paddle-friendly waters, a safe haven for little ones. The harbor here is surrounded by tavernas which liven up by night offering family-friendly entertainment, and further in to town there are many bars, restaurants and clubs to choose from.
Located on Corfu’s southern tip, Kavos is the place to go for singles and groups looking for a party holiday. From cheap accommodation to clubs galore, this place will suit anyone looking for a bargain and a good time. By day, sun yourself on sandy beaches or for some action try a banana boat ride or one of the other water sports on offer, and by night head to the strip for a non-stop clubber’s paradise.
For a quieter holiday and a taste of authentic Corfu, head to the beautiful old village of Roda. Families will receive a warm welcome and can enjoy tranquil beaches and a selection of shops and restaurants. Roda makes a great base – from here boat trips can be taken to many other islands for day trips and a change of scenery.
Ipsos, northeast of Corfu, attracts tourists for its renowned Blue Flag beach which is well maintained to keep its status. Enjoy dazzling waters and little warm pools – great for the little ones – and having a glorious lush green backdrop of rolling hills, it’s no wonder this beach is such an attraction. There is something to suit everyone here from the lovely harbor front with its tavernas to the lively town with its cocktail bars and restaurants.
Summers here can see temperatures soar to 35° Celsius – it’s no wonder sun worshiper’s flock to the Emerald Isle!
