13 Photos To Inspire You To Visit Corfu, Greece

Photos To Inspire You To Visit Corfu

Corfu is a Greek Island located in the Cyclades. The Cyclades has some of the best islands (Santorini, Mykonos, Paros, Naxos…) you can find in Europe in my opinion, but, maybe I am biased as I love Greece. Here are 13 photos to inspire you to visit Corfu, that will give you some serious wanderlust.

10 days ago as I was talking with a friend of mine that I wanted to leave the grey weather of Paris and go somewhere sunny to enjoy some actual summer weather. A few exchanges along the words “if you find anything I will go with you” and voila.

That’s how we find ourselves 4 days later, first passing through Brussels we ended up to visit Corfu, the travel destination we agreed on, in Greece for 3  full days.

While I’m not usually a beach person, I must say it was really nice not to run around all day, relax and enjoy the scenery without a worry in the world or having to check the weather forecast to know if our plan wouldn’t be ruined by some potential rain.

Our hostel/hotel was located on the north of Corfu right on the beautiful beach of Agios Gordios.

Of course, it’s a rocky island so there’s a lot of stiff hills or steep stairs. While it might get pretty tiring under the scorching sun the views are always rewarding once you get at the top, and hey, it’s good cardio! Lush nature and clear blue water makes everything better.

On the way to the beach, you can find a lot of tiny shops, full of souvenirs, beach supplies, restaurants and supermarket. Also a cute pastry café!

Since we only travelled with a carry on we didn’t bring any sunscreen, which we quickly had to buy in order not to fry under the scorching sun of Corfu. If you can I recommend you to buy it prior to the trip as it’s fairly expensive to buy sunscreen there.

The beach is dreamy and the water crystal clear, so even if, like me, you’re a bit scared of the sea (I mean we can’t know what lie deep down there right?!) ,well, you can still fully enjoy because you can see everything, yay.

Obviously the beach is also a great spot to watch the sun set in the horizon. If you’re a couple looking for a romantic getaway, Corfu is a great idea.

How gorgeous is this view? I think watching the sunset and listen to the waves crashing on the sands and rocks is one of the most relaxing things. You can just empty your mind and enjoy the moment.

You can find a lot of activities which are offered by most of the hotels on the coast. Such as Kayak, scuba diving, snorkelling and so on.

But there’s a lot more than only beach-related activities.
For example, you can go hiking, cycling, horse riding etc. There’s pretty much any kind of activities you could wish for on this island. Also, monasteries, Mt Pantokrator (highest spot of the island) Achilleion palace are pretty popular landmarks on the island.

Corfu Town

For more city life you Corfu Town is what you need, you can find a lot of more well known shops such as Mark&Spencer or Sephora etc…But also a lot of small independent shop selling sunglasses, bag or leather sandals and locals foods or goods.

The stylish restaurant Safran.

The architecture of the city is also typical as on any Greek Islands.  Some of the main spots of Corfu Town are; the port, the new fortress, the old fortress, the Liston and the old town…
We decided to visit the city by circling it, so we could see some shopping venue, the old fortress, the new fortress, the port and the old town. The city is adorable and have a really chill vibe, but be careful because if it’s hot it gets quickly tiring to walk.

We only did the old town, the port, and the old Fortress as the sun was scorching this day it quickly get very tiring to walk around all afternoon.
Remember to always wear sunscreen your skin is precious !

But I can assure you that the view from the top of the old Fortress is a-m-a-z-i-n-g.  But I will keep more of it for another post!

Overall Corfu is a destination that can fit pretty much everyone needs as a summer travel destination, if you’re looking for something pretty laid back but not totally and you don’t mind the heat that it.

For a few days to laze around away from the city like me or has a stop between other Greek Islands if you’re islands hopping you should visit Corfu !

    I’m so jealous that you could go here just for a weekend trip! Looks like such a beautiful place to visit 🙂

    Corfu looks gorgeous, I know a lot of people who have been but never taken the time to do any research myself. A great place to start thank you 🙂

    Corfu has been on my “must visit” list for a few years now! The island looks amazing and it looks like you had an incredible, and relaxing time. I visited Greece during the summer a couple of years ago, and I agree that when the weather is scorching, there isn’t much energy available for exploring.
