Corfu - Greece's Emerald Isle
Corfu is located in northwestern Greece and is the second largest of the Ionian Islands. Known as the 'Emerald Isle' because of its lush green vegetation, Corfu is one of Greece's most popular islands of the Ionian sea. Its natural beauty and golden sandy beaches see visitors flock to the island year after year to lap up Corfu's exotic scenery, wonderfully warm climate and ancient Greek culture. Corfu, or Kerkyra to give it it's Greek name, was Homer's 'beautiful and rich land' and is rooted deep in ancient Greek mythology, offering an unparalled wealth of Grecian history with some of the finest monuments and museums in the world.
The capital, Corfu Town is well worth a visit. Narrow, winding streets offer you a fine array of locally produced goods including silver jewellery and wooden artefacts, as well as sweet treats made out of the island's speciality fruit: kumquat. Above the harbour stands the majestic venetian fortress with spectacular views of the mainland and nearby Albania.
A trip to Corfu is not complete without partaking in one of the many boat trips on offer. Sail to the beautiful fishing village of Kassiopi and explore the ancient ruins, or discover the breathtaking islands of Paxos and Antipaxos. Many boat trips stop off for a barbecue on the beach and allow you the chance to dive off the boat into the warm, turquoise waters below.
For golfers, Corfu has an 18-hole golf course enabling you to play on one of the most stunning courses in all of Greece, and what better way to unwind in the evening than with a relaxing drink in one of Corfu's many bars? You will find a delightful array of restaurants and tavernas dotted along Corfu's dramatic coastline, all offering a varitey of fresh, traditional Greek cusine. For those who wish to venture out after dark, Corfu offers an exciting and vibrant nightlife. Families can enjoy a choice of water parks and attractions, whereas those looking for a more tranquil holiday can head inland and enjoy Corfu's peaceful, rolling countryside.
