The gorgeous Greek island of Corfu shares its nickname ‘the emerald isle’ with Ireland. Enveloped with lush green forests and olive groves, Corfu holidays attract travellers for its fantastic sunny weather and inviting beaches. Add to that pretty coves, sleepy villages, delicous cuisine and pastel-coloured cobbled towns and you have an idyllic short haul holiday destination.
Crowned as the second largest Ionian island, boasting over 210km of coastline, Corfu holidays are a fantastic option for families looking for a blend of lively and laid-back beach resorts. The peak summer months of June and August boast blissful temperatures of 32°C with warm, pleasant evenings, or enjoy Corfu holidays in spring and autumn when the weather is cooler.
This diverse resort appeals to a variety of travellers, whether you crave the crowd-pulling DJs and parties of southern Kavos, or the laid-back vibes of San Stefanos in the north – holidays to Corfu tick all the boxes! Among the most popular places to visit in Corfu are Glyfada Beach, Pontikonisi (Mouse Island), Acharavi, Aghios Gordios and the capital Corfu Town. Travelling here is not usually expensive and if you stay in the Old Corfu region, you'll get a taste of tradition without spending big.
