DON'T MISS: Sunset from the Bella Vista, a small taverna above Peleokastritsa on the west coast with the most stunning views over the 5 bays that make the resort so attractive. The food's not bad but you're really here for the views.


Pontikonisi is one of the two small islands right beneath you when the plane is landing, Pontikonisi (mouse island) is the one that's shaped like a mouse, the other is one of the most photographed scenes in Corfu, the monastery of the Vlacherna, reached by a narrow causeway.


The North East coast of the the island is the upmarket summer retreat for half of Kensington, it really is a beautiful stretch of coastline where Mount Pantokrator meets the crystal waters of the Ionian Sea forming some idyllic bays. Kalami is one of the prettiest and is where the Durrell family lived during their time in Corfu. Gerald wrote "My Family and Other Animals" about their adventures here, you can now enjoy lunch beside the sea at the White House Taverna, where they actually lived.


Aqualand is one of Europe's largest water parks with 75,000 square meters of slides, pools and fun, located in the centre of the island on the main road to Paleokastritsa
