11 Beautiful Places You Need To See In Corfu, Greece

There are some places across Europe that just seem under-rated, not because of how popular/unpopular they are or even because of how beautiful they are but instead because of how familiar they’ve become. Corfu is one of those places.

I’d been to Corfu several times as a kid with my family and , I didn’t really spend much time thinking about the island… I think I was more concerned with ice-cream and making the most epic of sandcastles.

Looking back as an adult, I’ve really come to appreciate the beauty that is in this amazing Greek island. It’s definitely one of those places that needs to be added to your travel list! Here’s why… and what to do when you get there!

Anyway, as you might know, scattered across the Aegean and the Ionian Sea, with places like , and being total gems.

This in itself is amazing for us travellers but how the heck can you choose just one island to visit? Now, I don’t have the answer to this but hopefully, I can share a little snippet of why you should head over to Corfu.

Take a look at some of best places you need to see when in Corfu.

Perched on the north-east coast of the island, Agni Bay is one little gem to visit. This historic fishing village is one gorgeous place to experience island life. Enjoy the coastline, take a dip in the warm waters and relax at one of the seafront tavernas that conjures up delicious Corfiot dishes. If you love seafood, you’ll love this little bay.

For a tasty bite, head over to Nikolas’ Taverna. You won’t be disappointed.

2.) See the dramatic Cape Drastis

11 Beautiful Places You Need To See In Corfu, Greece

Cape Drastis is one of the most northerly points of Corfu Island . Now, there always seems to be inconsistencies on when Cape Drastis is open but it’s a sure bet that the summer months are easiest to gain access.

Near the top of the road, there is a gate which is ‘sometimes’ manned to charge for entry. This isn’t always the case and you can be lucky to just drive straight through. The road down to Cape Drastis can also be a little steep, so drive with care. Once you’ve arrived, you’ll appreciate how beautiful this spot is. My favourite time to visit is later in the day when the sun hits the cliffs – it really is a dramatic spot.

Don’t forget to take a few bottles of water with you too. There’s very little in terms of amenities at this little spot.

3.) Explore the old town of Corfu

No visit to Corfu is complete without a wander around Corfu City . Make sure you wander around the UNESCO World Heritage protect the old town and see if you can spot any of the historic Venetian houses that are still standing.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for the Statue of Georgios Theotokis, the Liston, the Old Fortress, Spilias Square and Saint Spyridon Church .

With all that exploring, head over to The Venetian Well for yummy food in an idyllic setting .

4.) Wander around Vlacherna Monastery

Possibly one of the most iconic sites of Corfu, Vlacherna Monastery juts out into the sea on its very own island. Nowadays, the monastery is reached by a small track over the water, which makes for a lovely place to visit. The monastery is open all year round and welcomes all visitors.

Keep your eyes peeled for Mouse Island that’s just a little further out to sea.

5.) See St. George’s Church, Kerkyra

Although this Church looks like a Doric temple, it was actually built by the British in the 19th Century. Perched within the Old Fortress of Kerkya , it’s a great place to see. During certain times of the year, concerts are held inside, so make sure you check once you arrive on the island.

6.) Secure a proposal at canal d’Amour

Possibly one of the busier areas of Corfu Island, Sidari has a little gem that you should definitely see. Just shy of the town itself is Canal d’Amour, one of Corfu’s most unique spots.

Local folklore says that couples that swim through the channel will get married very soon., making it a perfect spot if you’re waiting for someone to pop the question! ????

Greece is well-known for its freshly, yummy and downright… with Corfu being no exception! There is a hearty amount of Corfiot dishes you should definitely try, with lamb being the meat of choice on the island. You’ll also get an impossible mix of fresh seafood and shellfish too, the benefits of being an island, eh?

Make sure to try Sykomaïtha too, it’s a fig-based cake that’s soooo good.

8.) Watch the sunset at Loggas Beach

Considered to be one of the best sunsets on the island, Logars Beach is a great place to chill out and relax whilst watching the sunset over the sea. Either make your way down to the beach or stay on top of the cliffs and perch yourself in the clifftop restaurant with a frappe or ouzo . It’s a great spot and well worth it after a long day of exploring.

9) Find Corfu’s best beach at Porto Timoni

11 Beautiful Places You Need To See In Corfu, Greece

If there’s only one spot you visit in Corfu, make sure it’s Porto Timoni, which is my favourite beach and coastline on the island. If you’re arriving by car, park up in the village and take the 20-minute stroll down to the beach itself.

The beach itself is amazing for swimming and snorkelling, just make sure you take a picnic for lunch, plenty of water and sunblock. No one likes to leave a beach hungry and as read as a lobster . ????

10.) Discover the Royal Achilleion Palace

Situated within Gastouri, Achilleion Palace. Built as a home for Austrian Royalty, it’s now open to us ‘commoners’ to explore and wonder at this beautiful building. MAke sure to head inside and take a tour of this gorgeous place.

Nestled in the north-west of Corfu, Palaiokastritsa is an intimate little village that is said to be the Greek mythological site of Scheria and the last spot Odysseus visited before returning home. Make sure to visit the monastery that goes all the way back to the 1200’s and take a dip on the main beach. It;s a great spot to spend a chilled morning in the sun.
