Five days in Corfu island, Greece

March 13, 2022

My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary in August by spending five days on the picturesque island of Corfu in the Ionian Sea.

Corfu is quite unique among Greek islands as its rugged mountains are spotted with forest. As for its beaches, these may be some of the best I have ever experiences in any Greek island!

What is also so unique in Corfu is that its cultural heritage reflects a blend of Venetian, French and British influence. The influence of Venice is so profound, oftentimes you could believe you are walking through the narrow calles of Venice.

Things not to miss:

  • Swim at Paleokastritsa beach. Though usually crowded with tourists, it is an absolutely enjoyable place to swim.
  • Shop local fashion in the many shops in the old Corfu City. There, we found some georgeous fashion – clothes and accessories!
  • Try the loukoumades (honeyballs) at Stazei Meli. Unlikely the loukoumades found normally, these are larger and come with delicious filling.
  • The coastline the strutted with lux resorts We stayed at the Gouvia area, at one of the Grecotels there. We were treated royally, while the bay next to the Eva Grecotel felt almost as if swimming in a private lagoon. The experience of swimming next to a forest was very new to us, especially as the sea reflected a beautiful emerald colour.
  • Spend a day or two roaming the old town of Corfu. The town is known for its cobblestone streets, while the pastel-colored buildings remind of Venice. The Liston promenade is a pedestrian street that is frequented by tourists and locals alike. To the west, there is an overlooking Venetian Fortress, while the Esplanade is a landscaped park near the water.
  • There are many noteworthy restaurants in Corfu. We had dinner at Mylos by Isla, a wonderful neo-traditional cuisine restaurant with mesmerising views (try the lobster!)
