Lush interior, pristine coastline, unique rock formations, and a romantic capital city. All this and more can be found on Corfu Island, a destination that truly delighted us during our trip to Greece. There are endless things to do in Corfu, you’ll never be bored.

The northernmost (and most popular) of the Ionian Island chain, Corfu is actually very close to mainland Greece, and the countries of Albania and Italy.

Due to its proximity and history with mainland Europe, Corfu Island was actually one of the first Greek Islands to experience mass tourism.

Because of this, Corfu has numerous accommodation options, many restaurants and bars, and a more cosmopolitan feel than many other Greek islands

Best Things To Do in Corfu

Greece is one of the most affordable countries to travel to and also one of the best countries for cuisine, so it’s no surprise that Corfu has some great value and amazing dishes to try as well.

We first heard about this when we were on a tour with Luxury Island Events on Zakynthos Island. This is one of the best things to do in Zakynthos, and while we didn’t have a chance to rent one while we were there, we knew we had to give it a try somewhere else in Greece.

For our 10-year anniversary, we did just that.

We drove to the northeastern side of Corfu and met up with the rental company. After a very casual signing of documents and a once-over of the boat, we were set. The boat was 45 horsepower and could have fit six people, four comfortably.
