TravelSupermarket can help you to find the best hotels in Corfu, whatever kind of holiday you dream of…
Located off the northwest corner of mainland Greece, the crystalline waters of the Ionian Sea surround the island of Corfu. Holidaymakers arrive between late spring and early autumn, when the sun bakes the island’s sandy bays and stark white cliffs.
The delicious flavours of Greece are here in abundance, with amazing salads, meat platters and tasty local wines on offer in the island’s traditional tavernas. International dining is available too, especially in livelier resorts such as Kavos where local produce can be enjoyed alongside burgers, pizza and chips.
Kavos is the party hub of Corfu, though the resorts of Roda, Dassia and Gouvia are also known for their bars and clubs. Corfu Town, also known as Kerkyra, will have night owls hooting with excitement too.

Archaeological Museum of Corfu
Open from Tuesday to Saturday in Corfu Town, the Archaeological Museum of Corfu is an absolute goldmine of remarkable ancient artefacts. Taking centre stage in the museum are relics from the island’s Temple of Artemis.
In the middle of the island – five miles south of Gouvia – is this emporium of aquatic fun. Enormous water slides, a lazy river, and pools for all ages mean you can cool off in the summer heat and have plenty of fun while you’re at it.
Some of the best views of Corfu can be had from the walls of this mighty fortress, which has overlooked and protected Corfu Town since the 16th century. Within the fortress, you’ll also encounter the stunning Doric architecture of the Church of Saint George.
St Spyridon Church
With a remarkable bell tower and red dome, the church of Spyridon – Corfu’s patron saint – is a handsome figure on the skyline of the Old Town. Inside is a temple containing an impressive silver coffin that holds the saint’s remains.
The Greek calendar has never been short of events and the people of Corfu enjoy laying on a celebration or two...
Corfu Carnival; February/March: The biggest event in the Corfu calendar is celebrated across the island in honour of Dionysus – a god who would be proud of the islanders’ ability to emulate his renowned love of wine.
Independence Day; March: Military parades, plenty of flag flying, and lots of fireworks bring a party atmosphere to the day marking an uprising that began the war for independence in 1821.
Assumption of the Virgin; August: A huge religious festival marked across the whole island with plenty of feasting, wine and traditional dancing.
