Resorts in Corfu island (Kerkyra) Greece

Corfu is among the most beautiful of all the Greek islands, with rolling green hills covered in pines and olive groves, and a coastline surrounded by several fine beaches of golden sand shelving gently into clear turquoise waters. Corfu island was a British Crown Protectorate in the nineteenth century, and it's still very popular with UK holidaymakers. Corfu Town itself is a lively and attractive capital, with delightful Venetian architecture, lots of interesting shopping, and even a cricket pitch! We have chosen resorts here to suit every holiday taste. For lively days and high-energy nightlife, choose Ipsos or Kavos. Quieter, relaxing holidays are to be found in Agios Gordios, Messonghi, Moraitika and Kassiopi, while Sidari and Paleokastritsa are established resorts catering for all types of holidaymakers.

• Kavos resort
the most southern holiday resort on the island approximately forty six kilometres from Corfu Town. By local standards this may sound remote but wait until you get there. You will be greeted by over one hundred bars, many restaurants and not forgetting the Kavos discos. Over the years this resort has become the liveliest place in Corfu and definitely the place to be for young people or the young at heart, who want to party until dawn.

• Paleokastritsa
This resort is famous for its breathtaking beauty and magnificent scenery. Paleokastritsa is the type of place where you will quickly make friends with locals and be drawn back to its beauty and charm again and again.
Retaining a fairly laid back atmosphere this is the perfect retreat for families and anyone wishing to escape the bustle of every day life, although the resort does get rather busy with 'day trips' wanting to capture the beautiful views such as those from the "Bella Vista" 0n film.

• Sidari resort
Swim the Canal D'Amor at Sidari and the legend promises that you will find  'the love of your life'.

Sidari has no shortage of places to eat at reasonable prices, shops and supermarkets to cater for all your needs and a good choice of bars. Sidari is still very much a typically Greek resort where families enjoy seeing the kids playing on the beach on the vast expanses of sand.
