For many years now, Corfu has been one of Greece’s most famous islands boasting an amazing environment, much greenery, and pristine beaches.
Corfu’s best beaches include unspoilt Agios Georgios Pagon, out-of-the-way Ermones, striking Paleokastritsa, Glyfada and remote Myrtiotissa on the west coast. In the east, choose from laidback Barbati, tiny Kouloura and Dassia, whose translucent waters and striking mountain views rank it among the island’s finest.
Next in your list of top things to do in Corfu, we explore the atmospheric Old Town, a Unesco World Heritage site. You will feel as if you have been transported to another era, with kings, countesses and noblemen and noblewomen once walking these cobblestone streets.
Considered one of the Mediterranean’s major fortified port cities, Corfu town’s Old Fortress and New Fortress are must-sees and splendid locations to view the capital and Ionian Sea from above. Below the Old Fortress is Garitsa, one of the city’s two main ports in antiquity.
