Acharavi

Acharavi sits on Corfu’s northern coast. It’s the main town in this part of the island, which means you’ll find plenty in the way of shops and nightlife. The central street is dotted with bars, shops and restaurants, and you’ll find even more along the little roads leading to the beach. The surrounding countryside is pretty spectacular, too – one of the world’s best walking trails sits in the hills behind town.

Aghios Georgios North

This little village, perched on Corfu’s northwest coast, takes you to the island’s rural side. Here you can kick back and unwind, surrounded by beautiful wooded valleys, cypress trees and olive groves. The village itself dishes up a clutch of houses and hotels, together with a few essential shops, bars and restaurants. Then you’ve got the real star of the show – the huge, golden-sand beach.

Aghios Gordios

People return again and again to this charmer of a village on Corfu’s west coast. It’s home to one of the island’s liveliest beaches, plus a decent cache of restaurants, bars and shops. And the surrounding countryside – all green hills, cypress trees and olive groves – is said to be among the prettiest on the island.

Aghios Ioannis Peristeron

Agios Ioannis Peristeron has both feet planted in the quietly-does-it camp. Nuzzling in to Corfu’s south-east corner, it’s not really a resort, more a low-key huddle of hotels, tavernas and bars dozing in the Mediterranean sun. It’s all set at the foot of olive grove-covered hills that slope up from the coastal road. Hushed coves and inlets pepper the coastline all around.

Alykes Potamos

Alykes Potamos is a quiet seaside town on Corfu’s eastern coast. It’s a restful place with a secluded sandy beach and a couple of family-run tavernas along the sleepy main road. Dense pine woods give a dramatic backdrop, while a pretty little canal runs along its southern edge. It feels like you’re away from it all here – but this is almost a Corfu Town suburb, with the cosmopolitan capital just 10 minutes’ drive away.

Corfu Town

Corfu Town, birthplace of the Duke of Edinburgh, falls between 2 great Venetian coastal fortresses to the east and west. Within these historical bookends lies a very modern capital that offers great beaches and boutique shopping. The town’s cobbled streets meander through the UNESCO-standard old town as far the Esplanade – one of Europe’s largest.

Dassia

Dassia is set on the east coast of Corfu, framed by deep pine woods and with dazzling views across to the mainland. It’s a fairly small place and the shops, bars and restaurants are strung along the coastal road. Pace wise, the evenings are just the right side of lively, while days on the beach flit between sunbathing and trying out the watersports.

Ermones

Ermones whisks you away from the bustle of Corfu’s busier places to a pretty little cove on the island’s west coast. The main attraction here is the sand-and-shingle beach, which nestles at the foot of cypress-clad green hills. And just a few feet from the sands you’ll find homey Greek tavernas, along with holiday essentials like motorbike and watersports rental shops.

Glyfada (Corfu)

A lovely sandy beach and a few friendly tavernas – that’s about it in Glyfada, which is what makes it such a perfect place to turn down the volume and relax. This tiny village is tucked away on Corfu’s west coast with fantastic walking trails all around and Corfu Town – for culture, shopping and a livelier nightlife – within easy reach.

Gouvia

Gouvia sits on the east coast of Corfu. Back in the 17th century it was a Venetian naval base, but now the village comes with more sophisticated waterfront credentials thanks to its smart marina. There are shops and lively bars in the centre, plus plenty of traditional Greek restaurants for meze. As for the beach, it’s a hotspot for watersports.

Kommeno Bay

Halfway up Corfu’s eastern Ionian coast is the secluded Kommeno Bay, an up-and-coming place that boasts luxury hotels all along its pine-fringed shore. The main pastime is hotel-hopping – getting from cabaret shows to restaurants to bars, all housed in the grandest of settings. The quiet private roads give the impression of remoteness – but you’ve got bustling Dassia’s lively beach bars and Gouvia’s 18th-century Venetian architecture only 10 minutes away.

Nissaki

This quiet place on the northeast coast of Corfu is laid out around a trio of coves, with sweeping views over to Albania. Nissaki comes with a clutch of shops and restaurants, and spreads up into the pine-covered foothills of Mount Pantokrator, Corfu’s highest peak. You’ll find some premium hiking trails if you can drag yourself away from the village’s old-world charm and relaxed beach.

Sidari

Probably the most famous destination on Corfu’s north coast, Sidari is certainly one of the liveliest. This one-time fishing village grew during the Eighties to become a veteran resort with beds for some 14,000 visitors. These days you’ll find a huge array of bars and restaurants on its busy main strip, but you’ve also got pretty, secluded coves and lovely coastal walks, too.

Alykes Potamos is a quiet seaside town on Corfu’s eastern coast. It’s a restful place with a secluded sandy beach and a couple of family-run tavernas along the sleepy main road.
