5 BEST BEACHES
Paleokastritsa is perhaps the most famous and
beautiful beach resorts on the island. On the west coast where huge cliffs tumble straight into the sea, here they form 5 pretty bays, each with its own beach. Boat trips to see the sea caves are worthwhile.
Glyfada Also on the west coast and definitely one of the longest and sandiest beaches in Corfu, fine white sand backed by stunning cliffs and some welcoming tavernas right by the sea.
Nissaki is a small pebble beach in one of the prettiest bays of the the North East coast, named after the little island (Nissi - aki) with a taverna where you can dine right beside the sea with views towards Albania.
Agios Gordis on the west coast is another stunning spot, a long sandy beach with impressive rock stacks out to sea. Most tavernas are in the main street leading down to the beach, turn left for the best part, near the hotel.
Sidari Awarded Blue Flag. The main beach is not so impressive but continue up to the Canal d'Amour area where you can swim in small sandy coves and through the tunnel to find your true love.
OLD & GORGEOUS
Corfu Town A joy to discover, it's incredibly picturesque and mixes influences from Italy, France and England. Fantastic cafes overlooking the cricket pitch (really) excellent shopping in the maze-like old town, atmospheric restaurants, churches and two impressive Venetian fortresses, still keeping watch for invaders.
