Find Out Why Everyone Loves Visiting Corfu

Written by in ,

The second largest island of the Ionian Islands, Corfu is also one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Greece.

The beautiful island of Corfu has a seemingly endless amount of activities for you and your guests to take on, and you will soon find that the history of this island runs deep — like, Greek mythology deep. But since most people travel to the island during the summer time, I know you’re looking for the best beach on the island, and that is hands down Paleokastritsa Beach. It won’t be the biggest beach you’ve ever seen, but it will definitely be one of the nicest. The water is crystal clear, perfect for snorkeling, and you can even rent boats to take mini cruises from here. There are plenty of excellent restaurants in close proximity of Paleokastritsa Beach, so you and your guests can make a day out of it. If this beach isn’t for you, or maybe it’s too crowded, try Kassiopi. This beach isn’t much of a step down from Paleokastritsa Beach. But don’t take our word for it. Find out for yourself! There are tons of beautiful beaches on the island of Corfu.

One of the most popular, and definitely one of the most fun, attractions in Corfu is going for a ride with The Crazy Speedboat Kavos Day Tours. With this day tour, you will go snorkeling, visit beautiful beaches, drink champagne in the blue lagoon, and the company takes great photos and videos for you during the crazy speedboat ride. The video is available to you at the end of the trip, after it has been edited. The champagne is complementary, and they even provide free waterproof bags for all of your electronic devices.

If snorkeling with The Crazy Speedboat Kavos Day Tours doesn’t scratch your underwater exploration itch, then we’ve got just the thing for you. Dive down deep under the water with Apollo Dive Center! It doesn’t matter if you have never been diving before in your life or if you have been diving twice a day, every day for the last fifty years. All customers are treated equally, with safety and professionalism being the two top priorities of this company’s experience.

As far as the nightlife goes, you have plenty of excellent options there as well. From Robin’s Nest Bar to Madison Garden Bar to Illusions Bar, you really can’t go wrong. But if you’re looking to have a few cocktails and relax in what a Hollywood movie version of paradise looks like, you need to swing by Malibu Summer. Kick your feet up on one of their padded lounge chairs, while you listen to relaxing music, with a delicious drink in your hand, as you listen to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach in the distance. It’s an ideal relaxation spot that includes a swimming pool and great food.

If you’re looking for a day of family fun in the sun, there are three waterparks on the island of Corfu. The two top waterparks in Corfu are Sidari Water Park Fun Park, and Aqualand. There is a third waterpark on the island called Hydropolis Water Park, but it isn’t as preferred as the aforementioned waterparks.
