Corfu Travel Guide - Avlaki Beach

On Corfu, prepare yourselves to enjoy good food and wine, long lazy Taverna lunches, dip into the sea and enjoy complete relaxation. Yet those searching a little more action will not be disappointed. Corfu is an island of diverse contrast. Welcome to Corfu: 


The Island of Corfu

Corfu is one of the Ionian Islands which nestle off the West side of the Greek mainland. The island is 36 miles long and at its widest part, the North, 15 miles wide. Covered with over 3 million evergreen olive trees, watered by winter rains, Corfu, even during the hot dry summers remains one of the greenest of the Mediterranean islands.  At the center is 'Mount Pantocrator' with a height of 998 meters. The North East coast is made up of sheltered rocky coves and shingle beaches offering secluded bays and traditional fishing villages. The North and South offer long sweeping sandy bays and the expected commercialism.  The craggy west coast, with the high cliffs and horse-shoe sandy beaches, offers and spectacular sunsets.

 


Exploring Corfu

Along the Corfu coast, search for quiet rocky coves or untouched sandy beaches. Inland a network of twisting roads service local villages that seem totally untouched by tourism; stop and explore and meet the warm and friendly Corfiot people. Discover deserted villages such as Old Sinies and Perithia with sheep and goats being the only residents!


Relaxing on Corfu


Laze by the pool, or search for secret coves that can only be reached by motor boat. With sparkling waters, and beachside tavernas awaiting, Corfu is your cure for stress cure!


Return Visitors to Corfu


Incredibly varied, the island has something to offer everyone, and judging by the number of visitors who return year after year, a great deal to offer to many.


Corfu Tavernas

You will discover that a Greek holiday is all about eating! Meals are to be lingered over, try a selection of starters (mezzay), main courses of fresh locally caught fish and tender meats, organically grown salads garnished with herbs and home-pressed olive oil. Greek wines are also well worth trying. As well as the traditional 'village wines' there has been real progress in Greek wine production and superb choices are available. Why not visit (and download) our essential food and wine guide and bring it with you on holiday?

A Very Brief Corfu History

Corfu has seen a colourful past where Greek, Roman, Venetian and French occupations have left their marks, including two forts. But, do not worry, this site doesn't go into too much detail, we don't do history lessons!

Corfu town or Kerkyra (as it is locally known), is built around French and Venetian architecture. The English left cricket and Ginger Beer!
