Corfu is the second largest of Greece’s Ionian Islands and has long been a popular destination for overseas visitors who are looking to enjoy some summer sun.
That’s not to say that the island is one that should only consider in peak season however, with favourable weather conditions throughout the year meaning it’s also a good option for anyone looking to escape the drab weather back home during winter.
Okay so rain may be possible, but even in the off-season you can expect the temperature to run comfortably into the teens.
Known in some quarters as the Emerald Isle thanks to the vibrant colours that exist thanks to a mix of cypress trees and olive groves that cover much of the inland areas, Corfu is also home to stunning beaches that are the perfect place to lie back on golden sands and embrace the sunshine.
In fact, there is more than 200km of coastline available across the island; leaving visitors somewhat spoiled for choice when it comes to the beaches that are available.
From lively resorts like Kavos and Sidari to low-key towns where you are more likely to see what traditional island life is all about, Corfu is an island that has something to cater for all tastes.
It’s certainly one that should be near the top of the list for anyone who wants to head for the Mediterranean for their break in the sun.
