It depends which direction it is landing from.
The most common is to aproach the island from the north, crossing the island on the western side, so looking out of the windows on the left of the plane you see Sidari, Roda and Acharavi, you then cross the island south of Corfu Town before making a U-turn to approach the runway from the south, from this direction you can see the hotels of Peramathrough the port windows (left side). Inevitably from this direction you are approaching from the sea and are quite low. But no lower than final approach at any normal airport. Gatwick for instance, you seem to be skimming the tops of trees and airport carparks for a life time.
On occasions you land from the north, the approach is normally the same but instead of the sharp u-turn, a gentler turn is made circling round Corfu Town and approaching something like from Gouvia and missing the town on the left as you come in to land. This direction is only used when strong winds are blowing from the south.
Its really no big deal either way, we've made it about 100 times, and never had a problem
