Location of Corfu island - (Kerkyra)

The Greek island Corfu is the most northern island of the seven Ionian Islands, which are located on the west coast of Greece in the Ionian Sea. The landscape is very diverse. It is very green, particularly for Greece, and reminds one a little bit more of Toscana (because of the mountains, the cypresses and the olive trees) than of a typical Greek island. This picture is further reinforced by the Venetian influences in the architecture. The highest mountain is the Pantokrator, almost 1000 meters high. The sea is very deep just of Corfu’s coast, down to 300 meters. In the southern part of Corfu some beaches are covered with volcanic material. The west coast of Corfu island is one of the world’s most beautiful, and particularly the beaches at Pelekas and Paleokastritsa are gorgeous
