Day 1: Explore Corfu Town

As you probably just arrived from the airport, which is near Corfu Town, it makes most sens to stay and explore around the city!

Morning day 1

1. Accommodation Check-in: Start your adventure by checking into your accommodation. Unpack, settle in, and prepare for a day of exploration.

2. Exploring Corfu Town: Wander the quaint streets of Corfu Town, admiring its Italianate architecture. The narrow alleys and vibrant squares make for a picturesque morning.

Lunch day 1

Pane e Souvlaki: Enjoy a delicious gyros box at this hot spot. It's situated in a really central area that draws both tourists and locals, so be prepared for crowds! But the price and the food is totally worth it!

I have also included in the place a picture with our bill, just to see some prices.

PANE E SOUVLAKI
@andrica
PANE E SOUVLAKI offers great value for its location and quality. The dishes are mainly traditional Greek, focusing on grilled foods, but they can accommodate gluten-free diets with dishes like grilled meats and salads. At approximately 9.8 EUR, it’s a steal for the quality and location!! Def worth visiting. The photos above are from our trip, so no false advertisement! I have also included a picture with our bill, just to see some prices.

Afternoon day 1

Cultural Landmarks: Visit the Old Fortress of Corfu. Its historical significance and panoramic views make it a must-visit. 

Open hours: 8 AM - 8 PM 

Old Fortress of Corfu
@andrica
Built by the Venetians, this epic structure is part tourist magnet, part medieval maze. Climb to the top for some killer views. The fortress is located on a rocky peninsula, and while the main pathways are manageable, some areas can be uneven and challenging for those with mobility issues. The climb to the highest points involves stairs and steep sections. Wheelchair Accessibility: The lower areas of the fortress are more accessible for wheelchair users. However, the upper parts may not be accessible due to the steep and narrow pathways. Facilities: There are basic facilities available, including restrooms and a café at the entrance area.

Also, make a stop at the Holy Monastery of Panagia Vlacherna.

Holy Monastery of Panagia Vlacherna
@andrica
This picturesque monastery, dedicated to the Virgin Mary (Panagia), is one of the most iconic images associated with Corfu. Access: The monastery is accessible by a paved causeway, allowing visitors to walk from the mainland to the islet easily. If you go there at sunset, there is also a good plane spotting and sunset catching place!
Add to
Details

Or consider a short ferry ride to Mouse Island (Pontikonisi) for a serene evening, costing just 2.5 EUR.

Pontikonisi
@andrica
One possibility how it gets this name is that if it is viewed from afar the island gets the contour of a mouse. According to a Greek legend the boat of Odysseus was turned into this island by Poseidon. You can reach the island by a small boat which leaves from the small port opposite. Since the island is situated close to the end of the airstrip there is a chance that you will see the airplanes flying a few meters above your head during landing.

Evening day 1

One absolute MUST-DO is plane spotting at Kanoni & Pontikonissi. You can walk on the pedestrian bridge and find yourself even closer to the airplane while it's landing, almost too-close I might say.

Corfu Airport Planespotting Spot
@andrica
I think we waiting for about 10 minutes, max, until the first plane arrived. Around sunset, when there is also the best view, the airport tends to get more crowded and if you start walking towards the middle of the "bridge", by the time you reach an optimal point, you'll definitely see a plane coming.

Here is a sneak peek of what you might see:

Day 2: Northern Corfu’s Coast

Morning day 2

Canal d’Amour: This is a HOT-SPOT in Corfu. Although it's super beautiful and indeed, romantic I'd say, sometimes its beauty might be stolen by the mass of tourist there. 

The place is relatively small, rocky (so not a sand beach - prepare your back), but it's still worth it. 

Just make sure you arrive early to catch a good spot and some morning sunlight. 

Canal d'Amour
@andrica
The place is rather small, but full of amazing views! No matter where you look, you'll find something to photograph. Here the usual actives incluse cave exploring (there is a famous cave you can't miss just around the cliff), basic swimming, cliff-jumping and a looooooooot of pictures :d Although, there are no sunbeds (obviously, not a good place for that), and it's not the most comfortable place to lay down.

In case this is packed

You can get back in your car and head over to Cape Drasits. 

Cape Drastis
@andrica
Another insta-worthy place. I recommend visiting this place in the early morning or at sunset, as the light and views are waaaaay better, but it also works during the say - it's too beautiful to exclude it.

Lunch day 2

Kantina Grill: A local favorite offering affordable, delicious meals perfect for a beach day. Super-close to the Canal d'amour and really affordable! 

Kantina Grill
@andrica
One huuuge gyros was about 6.5 EUR. Not necessarily the best gyros I had in my life, but def the best option in the area.

Evening day 2 - A MUST DO!!!

Sunset at Loggas Beach and 7th Heaven Bar.

I can't stress it enough how much we enjoyed this place and how beautiful it is. It's a famous spot for watching sunsets, with a really instagramable beach accessible by stairs and a restaurant nearby.

You can either just come, sit and enjoy the sunset here OR try 7th Heaven Bar.

Here you can have either a drink in the "bar area", or you can book a table in advance for enjoying your dinner. 

7th Heaven
@andrica
The photos attached here are ours. I also added a picture of our bill, just to be aware of the prices. While specializing in seafood, they provide options for vegetarians and can cater to gluten-free diets upon request. Prices range from 13 to 22 EUR per dish. 10/10 worth it. P.S. I HIGHLY recommend the mussels in white wine and garlic.

Day 3: Paleokastritsa 

Morning to Afternoon day 3

Explore Paleokastritsa: Drive to this stunning area known for its dramatic coastline and turquoise waters. Start at Agios Spiridon Beach, a beautiful spot with nearby free parking.

From there you can also sit at the Alipa Beach, but it’s smaller and more crowded.

Agios Spiridon Beach
@andrica
Start at Agios Spiridon Beach, a beautiful spot with nearby free parking. I think this is the "biggest" beach here, with free places for towels and a really family-friendly vibe. <3 Totally recommended + accessible by car OR by public transportation.

Free parking
@andrica
Be aware that all parking spaces will be FULL, but there is no problem if you just park anywhere you see a free spot (near a fence for example - as we did), as long as you don't block somebody else.

If you want a more luxurious place you can go to Agia Triada Beach, at the Akron Beach Bar. This is situated in a small really beautiful golf, but it's full of sunbeds that cost from 15 to even 50 euros, depending on how close they are from the water!! 

But at least the views are nice.

Akron beach bar

Agia Triada Beach
@andrica
Although this is really beautiful, it's more of a private beach as it's full of sunbeds from 2 fancy Beach Bars. Akron Beach Bar & Poseidon Restaurant. The sun beds cost anywhere from 15 to even 50 euros, depending on how close they are from the water. If you want to feel pampered, this is the spot!
Add to
Details

Tip: 

When searching on Google Maps for Paleokastritsa Beach it will pin in in the wrong direction so try to follow the more exact names of the small beaches as the whole area is named Paleokastritsa and you'll end up being more confused.

La Grotta Bar:

La Grotta Bar: A visit here is ESSENTIAL. Positioned in a picturesque cove, you can eat and drink at the table, but also relax in sunbeds and swim right in the same place!

TOTALLY WORTH IT. maybe the prices are a bit overrated, but it payed the experience.

La Grotta Bar
@andrica
I dont have a picture with the prices, but I can tell you a cocktail is 10-12 EUR and a tapa with a full plate of tzatziki 6 EUR. You dont necessarily need to eat/drink if you book a sunbed tho. Jumping in the water is a must.

Dinner day 3

Monastre Restaurant: Conclude your day at this upscale restaurant near the Monastery of Paleokastritsa. Not the cheapest place, but DEFINETELY RECOMEND IT 100000 TIMES if you want to eat great, have amazing views, and feel spoiled by the staff.  Make sure you book in advance.

Monastre
@andrica
This is more of a luxury - giving fine dining vibes. The portions are not huge, but the are delicious! That, plus the attention of the staff, the location, THE VIEW - makes everything worth it. Prices are a bit higher than usual, around 20 EUR each or more each dish. You can find in my reel a preview of some of the views. it doesn't disappoint.

Day 4: Let's go on a boat ride

Rent a boat and go to Paradise Beach! 

Exploring Corfu by boat is an excellent way to discover its stunning coastline and hidden coves. Whether you prefer to pilot your own boat without a license or enjoy a guided tour with local experts, Corfu offers versatile options to suit every traveler's needs.

For those interested in diving deeper into the specifics of renting boats, including detailed steps, tips, and my experience & recommendations for the best experiences, check out our complete guide on boat rentals in Corfu.

Paradise Beach

Paradise Beach is a wild natural beautiful spot accessible only by boat. 

Here there are no bars, no shops, nothing - just simple breath-taking beauty.

Chomi beach
@andrica
Warning: as there is nothing around, there is also no shadow. So if you can't bring an umbrella, be aware you'll be spending most of the time in plain-sun. That's why going around sunset/speding 2-3 hours max here would be a good idea.
Add to
Details

What to Do: We hung out on the beach for a few hours, swimming and chilling in the sun. Since there are no shops or facilities, the beach remains clean and natural. Just make sure you bring everything you need, like water, snacks, and sunscreen.

Getting Around Corfu

While there's some public transport available, renting a car or a boat is the best way to explore Corfu thoroughly. The roads here can be narrow and curvy, almost like a rollercoaster at times, and it's often too tight for two cars to pass each other easily. Despite what you might hear, it’s important to drive safely and not speed, especially after drinking.

We rented our from here:

If you are renting a car, I suggest to book one accommodation to return to daily.

Is Corfu Safe?

Absolutely! It's a very safe place. The most dangerous thing might be falling in love with a stray cat!
