Corfu Town

The Achilleion
Located outside the Gastouri village is the Achilleion, a white neoclassical villa that was the summer home of Sisi, the Empress Elisabeth of Austria. Sisi was a beauty lover, and every aspect of the villa highlights her love for beauty, Greece mythology, and lush green nature.

Roughly 36km away from Corfu Town, a small fishing village that has managed to hold onto its character despite its growing popularity. Overlooking the harbor full of wooden fishing boats the village is home to seafood taverns and cafes. The best way to explore the surrounding place is by hiring a small boat, and getting around with the help of a local.

Paleokastritsa Beaches
A glorious stretch just 25km away from Corfu Town, this stunning bay showcases a staggering beach consisting of both sand and pebbles. A popular spot that can easily fill up during the day time.

If you know how to swim feel free to jump into the warm waters and swim your way through the tunnels and caves for an unbelievable experience.

La Grotta Beach
Another stunning beach that comes with a small frame, and a rocky ambiance. However, it’s clear blue water makes it hard to look away, especially when you can see the fish swimming away. Moreover, the beach comes with a jumping rock from there you have a spectacular view before you dive into the clear blue sea below you.

Mount Pantokrator
In the north corner of Corfu is the highest peak point, rising about 906 meters above sea level. Hiking to the top is not an easy task but can offer you a complete view of the island.
