Corfu island (Kerkyra) - Greece
Whether enchanted by its blue waters and golden sands, gripped by its electric nightlife or captivated by its
pine-clad hills and secret coves, Corfu is an appealing destination for the most rounded of holidaymakers. Corfu's scenery is at times breathtaking but with temperatures peaking in the early thirties at the height of the summer season in July it is easy to forget all about your surroundings while lazing on one of its many sandy beaches. As with most of the Greek islands, Corfu
comes to a relative standstill during winter when the major resorts close down. However, during the summer, the island is one of the most popular holiday destinations among UK tourists and flights, lasting around three hours, are regular from most airports ...
