The island of Corfu (Kerkyra) is one of the most beautiful Greek islands in the Mediterranean, frequented by tourists of all nations and suitable for adults but especially for children of all ages.
Corfu offers lots of beaches, the main reason why this tourist destination is chosen, but there’s much more, from the characteristic seaside villages to the Byzantine churches, to the numerous museums.
From a geological point of view Corfu is very similar to the nearby Greek coast; Its territory is rather mountainous and much of the island is crossed by three mountain ridges, with the northern part predominantly occupied by Mount Pantokratoras.
The northern part of the island is rather jagged, which favors the formation of bays, coves and headland, while as you descend southwards the sandy beaches grow longer forming a more regular coastline.
There are many places to visit on this island: among the most beautiful beaches we recommend Aghios Giorgios, Aghios Gordis, Kassiopi, Kalami, Barbati, Glyfada, Sidari, and many others, some better known, some less. The most characteristic village is undoubtedly Benitses, a fishing resort located about 12 km south of Corfu Town
Gouvia is the most important tourist port on the island, Dassia and Ipsos are the destinations most coveted by young people, with lots of clubs, discos and bars; More peaceful are the villages and the respective beaches of Paleokastritsa, Kalami, Barbati, Nissaki e Kassiopi.
