Golden sands, vibrant nightlife and a rich heritage beckon holidaymakers to Corfu. In Greece's Ionian Sea, this island favourite has drawn in visitors since the 19th century – no wonder it’s perfected the art of holidays.
Corfu holidays tick all the boxes. Its sun-drenched beaches and all-night revelling draw in sunseekers craving the full package holiday experience, while active travellers look inward to the lush hinterland that gave the island its ‘Emerald Isle’ nickname.
Little remains of Corfu’s ancient roots so history buffs head towards Corfu Town, where Venetians, French and British rulers all left their mark. Its grand mansions, medieval fortress and historic churches have earned it UNESCO World Heritage status, though you don’t need to know your Romans from your Venetians to appreciate a wander through its warren of pretty streets.
Like to shop? You'll also find craftspeople selling handmade lace and colourful ceramics here, while smart jewellers in the gracious 19th-century arcades of the Liston sell glittering gold and silver.
For families, water parks offer rides, slides and toddler-friendly pools, and every sandy beach in Corfu has a choice of watersports, from parascending and water-skiing to banana-boat rides, windsurfing and scuba diving.
Whatever side of Corfu you’ve come to discover, you’ll find accommodation to suit and a great-value deal to match. From boutique inns in town and amid the vineyards and olive groves, to resorts replete with spas and multiple pools, and affordable self-catering apartments, all bases are covered here.
Violent crime involving visitors is rare in Corfu, but petty theft does happen. Be careful when riding rented scooters and quad bikes, especially if inexperienced, as road accidents are not unusual. For up-to-date travel advice for Greece, check the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office.
No, travellers with a full British passport do not need a visa to visit Corfu.
Allow at least a week to visit Corfu Town, sunbathe on beaches and enjoy all the watersports and excursions on offer at your resort. A two-week stay gives you time for more adventures.
Corfu can be as budget-friendly or as high-spending as you like. There are a few high-end hotels, but in terms of accommodation, eating and drinking and extras such as car rental, it's one of Greece's most affordable holiday islands.
