Corfu has been a beloved summer holiday destination for Brits since the 1980s. To this day it is still a favourite with holidaymakers of all sorts. Families will love the more laid-back resorts of Gouvia and San Stefanos. Sidari and Roda have plenty of cafes and bars for livelier nightlife and for the real party animal Kavos has plenty of clubs pumping tunes into the early hours of the morning.
Corfu is home to stunning bright-blue water and golden, sandy beaches. The beaches are perfect for relaxing and admiring the view but also for water sports. If you want to get out on the water, why not rent a boat or jetski? The island is also home to two waterparks Aqualand waterpark and Sidari waterpark, so there is plenty to keep the little ones entertained. The beaches aren't the only beautiful thing about Corfu as the island has plenty of nature inland as well. Corfu is known as the emerald isle because the plentiful olive groves and cypress trees give it a lush appearance. To immerse yourself in the local nature, why not go for a horseback ride through the breath-taking countryside? When you want to come back to civilisation a visit to Corfu old town is a must. It is UNESCO listed and dates back to the 8th century. There are plenty of ancient churches, leady squares and picturesque streets to take in. For history with a view, check out Angelokastro Castle, which perches on the island's tallest peak. The Byzantines built it, and while it's a hike to get there, the stunning views are worth it.
