Corfu is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all the Greek Islands. It is the greenest of the Ionian Islands and probably also the best known. The island offers a beguiling landscape of wild flowers, cypress trees, olive trees and several seductively sandy beaches.

Corfu also has a major vegetable garden which gives the fresh mountain air a pleasant scent. To the south of Corfu town is Moraitika and Messonghi which have beautiful scenery and beaches. However, the west coast of the island is the most attractive as that is the place where you will find some of the prettiest countryside around and it is also here that you will find the small coves with the sandy beaches surrounded by cliffs and trees. The north coast is more typical Greek with a rocky coastline where the crystal clear water has chopped into pebbled bays and coves.

The name Corfu (Kèrkyra) names not only the island, but also its capital, which is a beautiful, sophisticated and charming town. It is also one of the most elegant island capitals in the whole of Greece, as it was modernised for the 1994 EU summit.

The architecture in town is influenced by the French, the Italians and the British, but it still has a contemporary Greek feel to it, which makes it an amazing place to visit.

Corfu is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all the Greek islands. It is a popular destination for families and individual tourists, but also offers interesting cultural opportunities. The main season includes the summer months until the beginning of October. It is the greenest of the Ionian Islands and probably also the best known. You will be fascinated by a beguiling landscape of wild flowers, cypress trees, olive trees and several seductively sandy beaches.

Nude bathing is only legal on a few beaches in Greece and it is considered offensive to the traditional Greeks. It is also very bad etiquette to swim or sunbathe within sight of a church and there are several churches around the Greek coastline. Topless sunbathing is legal nationwide but there are several areas which have adopted their own policy and opted out of this liberal approach by posting signs which should not be ignored.

The police rarely hand out fines but you can end up with three days in jail if you ignore the first warning. The island is full of lovely beaches and especially Myrtiotissa near Corfu, Glyfada and Pelekas on the west coast are worth a visit. There are also plenty of secluded beaches on the west coast that can be reached by a water-taxi or by one of the small day-tripper boats for a fee.

Kѐrkyra town offers some great restaurants with delicious food. The best restaurants are based around Plateia Dimarchiou (Town Hall square) and along Kapodistriou. The cuisine is influenced by many different cultures and Italian cuisine seems to have had a big influence. Some of the specialities worth trying are the Sofrito, the pastitsada and the bourdeto. The gelaterias are not to be missed either.

Corfu town has a plethora of cafés and most of them are lined along the main pedestrian street Listón. A true Corfu experience is to indulge in people-watching while you are enjoying your frappé (ice-coffee drink).

Kèrkyra town and the Island as such have plenty to offer when it comes to nightlife. Some of the nicest bars on the island are located in the town centre and most of the nightlife action on the island is on Corfu’s self-proclaimed disco strip which lies only a couple of kilometres north of town centre.

Corfu offers a large variety of shops. Down the cobbled streets and alleyways you can find everything from a small gift and souvenir shop to a boutique with exclusive Italian designer clothes. There are many interesting shops in between, but the best deal can be made on leather goods, jewellery, gold, silver and fur coats. However, if you are going to buy jewellery it is important that you use a reputable jeweller.

The area around Ionian Sea is famous for its ceramic work and there are plenty of opportunities to see just that on display in the shop windows around town. Naturally, it is also being sold in most of the souvenir shops around town.

Probably the most unusual and the most fascinating is the amount of hand-woven carpets, tablecloths, napkins, skirts and blouses of lace and cotton which are available in Corfu town. Heavy white stitched sweaters, which are made on the Aegean Island, are also very popular among tourists. Other typical Greek things to bring home could be the skewers for souvlaki, and also the Greek pastries are very tasty. There are usually bargains to be found if you are willing to negotiate, and the prices tend to fall a little when the tourist season is about to end.
