Corfu is one of Greece’s most popular and enchanting islands, and its Cypress trees and olive groves have given it the nickname of The Emerald Isle due to its lush green colouring. Its easy access from the UK has made it popular with Brits seeking attractive and sun-soaked holidays, clubbers excited enjoy the pulsing nightlife in Kavos, or visitors seeking beauty and peace in one of the island’s quieter resorts. The island has golden beaches that offer access to Corfu’s picturesque coves, and boat trips that allow you to navigate the transparent waters while absorbing the dreamy coastline. Others are drawn by Corfu’s history, which began in the 8th Century BC and appears in countless Greek myths.

Once a fishing village, Sidari is one of Corfu’s livelier resorts and found at the north-east of the island. The Blue Flag beaches and the secluded coastal walks are calm contrasts with the fun-packed nights you can enjoy in Sidari’s karaoke bars and late-night pubs. While you will find a fun nightlife in Sidari, you will also have the option for a gentle holiday packed with Greek charm.
If you are looking for a Greek holiday packed with dancing and nightclub action, Kavos is certainly the resort to choose. Kavos popped up during the 1980s and has since been known as Corfu’s club capital, offering the chance to party morning, noon, and night. Whenever you want to slow things down, you’ll find a 5-mile-long sandy retreat where you can either relax and catch some rays or get involved with the thrill-a-minute watersports.
The UNESCO-listed old town is the resort to stay in – or at least visit – if you are looking for culture, history, and exclusive boutique shopping. You’ll also enjoy the calm ocean of Mon Repos Beach, plus the bars open late and restaurants selling Greek cuisine, but the real joys of the Old Town lie in the 8th-Century fortresses, the green royal palace gardens, and St Spiridon’s Church.
Roda is a quieter Corfu resort: a traditional and welcoming fishing village providing incredible views of the ocean and astounding scenery. You’ll find an exceptional Blue Flag beach here that is ideal for paddling in whatever your age, as well as a range of watersports and beach games. Roda is surrounded by countryside where visitors will often hike and ride horses, or if you prefer to keep things cosy, the village is home to some delightful and authentic tavernas.
On the north coast of the island, Kassiopi village is a fun-filled resort with a unique historical past dating back to Roman times. It’s got both a peaceful traditional harbour and an upbeat set of bars and nightclubs that are open until the early hours of the morning, meaning that Kassiopi is a great choice for culture vultures who love to party.
