Anyone searching for the ideal beach break for their summer holiday should certainly be turning their attention towards the Greek Islands.
After a rather trouble-packed few years in terms of economy issues, Greece is now back up and running and tourism is certainly booming. There are countless destinations and islands to choose from, but one of the most popular, and one of the largest, is certainly Corfu.
Corfu is the second biggest island in the Ionian range, and it is also known as the Emerald Isle. Why? Because of its abundance of countryside and lush vegetation, which blends beautifully with the blinding blue of the sea, and the white sandy beaches. On top of this, Corfu is also an island with a destination to suit everyone. Want to be relaxed? Head north. Want to party? Kavos is for you!
You won’t struggle to find a cheap deal to Corfu if you look hard enough, and families will certainly get the most for their money by trying an all-inclusive hotel. This means that your food and drinks are paid for, and you don’t have to worry about budgeting whilst you’re away. We all know that when temperatures are high, the little ones need to stay hydrated, and all-inclusive means you don’t have to panic about that high bill on soft drinks! There are many all-inclusive holidays to Corfu with A1travel to be found, so head online and get checking out your next destination!
From lazing on an idyllic beach, to shopping, partying, and water-park fun, Corfu is packed with activities. Because of the green appearance of the island, this gives way to many walking and cycling trails, which are a great way to break up your holiday, when perhaps the beach may get a little tiresome after a week or so! You’ll find colourful flowers, beautiful scenery, and fragrant cypress tress as you explore the island, and you’ll also experience a different feel to every resort.
If you want something more authentically Greek, with traditional tavernas and those white houses with blue shutters we all see on the TV, then head to the north of the island, visiting Gouvia and San Stefanos. On the other hand, if you want to experience a more vibrant resort, without it being too in your face, then Sidari is a great choice. This resort offers something for everyone. On the other hand however, if you want to party and let your hair right down, then Kavos has to be your destination. Here you will find endless clubs, neon lights, and visiting big-named DJs.
We mentioned that Corfu is big, and it has almost 200km of coastline to check out. This means beach time is a must, however you can break it up by heading to Corfu Town for a spot of shopping, or Aqualand, for a water-park family day out.
Put simply, Corfu is summer holiday heaven.
