Remarks on our vacations

All websites about Corfu are specifically dealing with the Agios Gordis area. The information supplied upon request from the Greek Tourist Office in London, was sparse at best and failed to include much that we were informed would be supplied. Indeed, most of it appeared to be handbooks specifically dealing with events surrounding the Olympic Games in 2004. WHAT USE would that now be to anyone? Get your act together, Greek Tourist Office!!

Furthermore, the ONLY decently accurate road map that we were able to find was one that had been hand-drawn by someone living in Nottingham UK and who had published this merely in frustration at the hopeless more officially-produced efforts!

The beaches on the central WEST coast of Corfuare absolutely superb, especially for families. The East coast features mainly shingle beaches, which are far less attractive.

There are pitifully few historical monuments to visit on the island and those that do exist are not adequately signposted, nor do they feature in the majority of the guidebooks or free literature available locally. This is far from the case on other Greek islands that we have visited.

The standard of cuisine in Corfu we found to be consistently of a very high standard, even at small taverns off the beaten track. We are forced to observe, however, that we found prices everywhere to be far higher than those we experienced during our visit to Turkey in 2006.

Demolish Kerkyra Airport completely and build something far more in keeping with its status as an "international" airport. Treat foreign visitors arriving at/departing from the Airport as distinguished guests, NOT as cattle. Improve road signs throughout the island. Generally, we found these to be poor, inadequate and often badly positioned.

I just returned from a wedding in Corfu. I have friends there living in the Old Town. We Serbians love Greece and the Greek people, we are connected to them and the Greeks love us. Everything in Corfu is so relaxed and easy, I neved had any problem there . Everybody are verry polite and friendly, I feel there as at home.

Bigest impresion for me is island Vido and the Serbian house, and way how greek gouverment take care about Vidos. Drink frape glika, tria zahari elafri, that's the best coffee!

Restaurants and tavernas are verry clean, service is verry good, prices are normal. One of my favorite restaurants is Dimarcheio, En Plo, Rex, and many tavernas which I don't know the names.. Rent a car even for 2 days,it is not far away to visit coasts and to stop on lot of wonderful nature beauty spots. It's worth and stay in memory. Corfu has lots of churches... Monastey of Pantocrator is on almost every postcard... The only problem that there is no direct plane line from Beograd to Corfu in May and have to go via Athens.

This is a beautiful island with very picturesque landscape, particularly in north east. Lovely friendly people, especially in tavernas. Corfu Town is a wonderful place to visit. It is cosmopolitan but with a lot ofharacter, fantastic restaurants and culture. In every corner, you will find something new to take pictures. People also talk different in Corfu than in rest of Greece. Their accent is more musical and the locals told me it is because they inherited this accent from the Venetians. I absolutely loved Corfu!

The beaches were very different over the island. I preferred stony, still waters as we have a child. Although sandy beaches were good on west coast, water was a little rough in places. Try Paleokastritsa, Sidari, Canal d'Amour to swim and avoid Acharavi. It has big rocks and high waves.

The Archaelogical Museum in Corfu Town was interesting as was the old Fortress. Better to visit early morning due to heat during day. Kanoni was an amazing experience with the small church in front and the planes going over our heads. Kids also loved the Shell Museum in Benitses. Also from the old port of the Town, take the boat to Vidos islet. This is the small, green island right opposite the harbor of Corfu. There are quiet beaches to swim and a nice restaurant with view to the town.

Not suited for young people

The island is very quiet and peaceful and not suited for young people in search for fun things to do and for joyful clubs (except for Kavos which is a resort where very young British people go to drink, get high, dance and "make close-one-night-stand-friends"). Aqualand is also a fun place.

Before you go, search very carefully for information about the area, for proper accommodation and if possible search for opinions from people who visited the area or stayed at the hotel. I had a very bad experience with the hotel (Green Island in Moraitika resort): small and poor rooms, very bad food and unfriendly manager.

This summer, we drived to Corfu from our homeland, Serbia. The part of the road from Grevena to Igoumenitsa is very dificult to drive. Traveling with breaks and sleeping in the small hotels as we did, made the trip better and interesting. Corfu is very popular in Serbia because of the history and hospitality of the Corfiots in World War I. Because of that, Serbians have a lot of informations of Corfu and about all Greece, so it wasn't hard for us to get our decision about summer destination or to collect info. The whole Greece in general is one of the main touristic destinations for the people of Serbia. One of the most beautiful countries is our neigbours. First time, I was in Greece (Athens) in 1987. From this time, me and my family are exploring mainland and islands almost every year. We don't need recommendations any more.

The main attraction for us was Corfu town which is adorable and the villages with beautiful atmosphere, specially during the local festivities. Our opinion is that Corfu needs more exclusive accomodations and day attractions. Also, the police should prevent little bit of vandalism of the young people with motorbikes during the nights. We stayed in the small village of Agios Gordios recommended for family vacation, but there were some noisy nights because of the guys who were making moto races. Nevertheless, this should not stop you visiting Corfu. The beaches, the green nature, the castles, the food... Ahhh, no doubt one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen...

I went to Corfu by car from Serbia. The part through mountains to Ioannina was very difficult and windy, but you passed by many picturesque places. Corfu as an island was superb. Every place has its own story. The east and west coast are very different. There are places for everyone, young, old, children...But one of the disadvantages is that if you want to see the whole island, you will spent a lot of time in car and the roads should be wider. My best beach was Paleokastritsa, although the water was very cold some days. One of the best things to do is visit the Aqualand. Corfu town is great and very picturesque, it reminded me a lot of Venice. Best bar Malibu in Dasia.

As I enjoy driving much, I decided to drive to Corfu from Bulgaria, through Northern Greece. Corfu was as great as in pictures and postcards I had seen. A truly magnificent island with a lot of greenery and gorgeous beaches. I felt that the northern part of the island was more developed than the southern, as it had more hotels and better beaches. I loved the Castles and the Fortresses all over the island. The Old Town was lovely and at many points I wished I was staying there permanently. Pontikonisi is also picturesque and there is a cafeteria with great view to it. Go, go, go to Corfu! You will not regret it, TRUST ME!

Expensive but gorgeous island

A good friend of mine proposed that I visit Corfu and I wasn't disappointed. We went by car to Igoumenitsa and from there took the ferry to Corfu. The island was lovely, beautiful landscapes, gorgeous beaches and the people we met were open-hearted. I especially liked Sidari village and Arillas beach. What I didn't enjoy was that almost everything in Corfu markets was expensive. 1 loaf of bread costs 1.30 euros and the mineral water of 1 1/2 lt costs 1.35! That is crazy! If you wanted to rent a sea bike, you would pay from 9 to 15 euros for 45min. It was cheaper to eat or drink at a restaurant rather than buy something to cook yourself. However this will not prevent me from visiting Corfu again as nature there is amazing.

Writing a review about Corfu? It's no easy job. There's too much to say, Too many places to talk about. Such a variety on offer on this island just across the Ionian Sea, a few hours' ferry voyage from Brindisi or flight from most big cities in Europe.The charm of its old town and its narrow lanes crowded with people in search for a souvenir to take home.The breathtaking views that can be enjoyed while driving along the coastal roads to reach the various beaches.The pleasure of swimming in crystal clear waters touching beaches appealing to all tastes: rocky, pebbly, sandy beaches and coves. The excitement of plunging into the water and swimming and snorkelling at Cape Dratsis,Peroulades, Kalamaki, Avlaki, Kerasia, Nissaki, Agni, Paleocastritsa, Nausica Island, Mirtiotissa ( the paradise of nudists ) only to mention a few. The sense of peace, quiet and solitude you feel at Almiros on windless days, and, by contrast, the awareness of the tremendous power of the sea on the same beach when Mistral is blowing. And not only food for the spirit, but refreshing drinks and tasty, delicious dishes served in bars and taverns and love that seems to be floating in the air in a mix that ends up involving you completely, body and soul.

On seeing Corfu, their creation, the Gods must have been very pleased with themselves. And visitors can share into this immense godlike pleasure.

Magnificent island and divine beaches

This summer Corfu was our destination to attend a reunion of friends who had visited the island 20 years ago. It is indeed a great island with divine beaches (especially Ermones and Myrtiotissa). The villages are quaint and very appealing. The local food was great. Our dining experiences were excellent and we spent most of our time at Spiro's Taverna in Vatos. Rent a scooter and visit the whole island and all beaches. It will be a magnificent experience!!
