Known as the Emerald Isle (thousands of trees clinging to hillsides afford this title), Corfu has been a holiday favourite for many years and the tourism industry is well established, catering for thousands of visitors every year.
Bookworms will also know the island as the setting of Gerald Durrell's autobiographical novel My Family and Other Animals.
There are plenty of resorts to be whisked away to after you've landed at Corfu Airport (CFU). Neighbouring Ionian Islands are also easily accessed from Corfu and many tourists choose to fly here and then board ferries to reach smaller islands nearby.
Of those who stay on Corfu, numerous Brits head straight to the bars, restaurants and clubs of exhilarating Kavos. It is a resort dedicated to dancing, drinking and days spent recovering on the beach and the nights here are loud and lively.
Those looking for peace and quiet need not look too far. Kassiopi is a small fishing village in the east and has kept its quiet charm, while Arillas has just enough tavernas to keep tranquil holidays from getting repetitive.
Other popular resorts on the mountainous island include Sidari and Roda in the north, Benitses, Kontokali, Dassia, Nissaki and Ipsos in the east, while out west are Paleokastritsa, Glyfada, St George, also known as Agios Saint Georgios, and Pelekas, which has earned a reputation for gorgeous sunsets.
Corfu Town is an interesting place to stay, and there is plenty of history and culture to indulge in.
There really is a resort for every type of holidaymaker, whether it's a group, family, singles or couples holiday, and whether you're looking at staying in a hotel, villa or self-catering apartment.
Corfu holidays are ideal for diving into watersports action or for sailing opportunities, and there are enough golf courses to keep every level of golfer busy for a few hours.
