Excursions & day trips

Boat Trip from Corfu to Sivota with Barbecue on Board

A delightful foray to the west coast of mainland Greece from Corfu. Skippered by local legend Captain Theo, you'll cruise over to Sivota, enjoying a barbecue on board along the way. Theo, who's been sailing these waters for four decades, says, ‘I love the sound of guests whooping with joy – the sound of summer – when they jump into the Blue Lagoon for a swim. We then explore Papanikolis sea cave, which is also popular.'You'll board the boat ready for a picture-perfect journey across the Ionian Sea towards the mainland. And between taking in the scenery of pine-clad islets, you'll cruise into Papanikolis sea cave, where you'll see the sea glittering on the roof. The next stop will be for swimming in the Blue Lagoon. Its fluorescent-turquoise waters look radiant – and inviting – when contrasted against the tree-topped white headland that shelters the lagoon. Captain Theo will anchor here for 90 minutes, during which time you can swim and feast on an on-board barbecue with free-flowing wine.After all that fun, Theo will rev up his engine to glide over to the sheltered fishing village of Sivota on the mainland. Laidback and unpretentious, it's where Greeks from a bit inland seek the cool sea breeze during summer. Enjoy an hour to check out the cafés and shops, or maybe amble up to the parish church to admire its frescoed ceiling and gilded icons. Afterwards, it's time to hop back on board for the return cruise to Corfu.

What to do in Corfu

Situated in the Ionian Sea off Greece's northwest coast, Corfu is a shout-out holiday destination. Blue waters and natural beauty will be the first thing to hit you when you set foot on the island – and it only gets better. Head to the UNESCO-listed Corfu Old Town for an intro to the island’s history, and relish the Mediterranean flavours of Corfiot cuisine at your fingertips. Spend your days soaking up the sun at any of the beaches dotted around the island and discover the different parts of the island – from the buzzing nightlife in Sidari and Ipsos to the secluded charm of Paleokastritsa. Read on to discover the best activities and excursions you can do to make the most of your time in Corfu. 

Top 6 things to do in Corfu

1. Explore the streets of Corfu Town 

Known to locals as Kerkyra, this UNESCO-listed town is where you can immerse yourself in a vibrant cocktail of Venetian, French, and Greek influences that give colour to the island. It’s a hub of good food and wine – dive into Corfiot cuisine with local Greek salads and gyros on the menu. Head to the Venetian fortresses, such as the Old and New Fort, to snap some pics, and explore other top spots including churches, the French-era Liston Promenade, and the Mon Repos Estate, offering a glimpse into the island's past.

2. Time travel with a touch of glam at Achilleion Palace

Built in 1890 as a retreat for the former Empress of Austria, Sissy, Achilleion Palace is a neoclassical marvel boasting stunning architecture, lush gardens – and A-Class views of the island. Her love for ancient Greece and mythology is reflected in its design, and you can’t miss the iconic Achilles statue overlooking the Ionian. Marvel at the imperial history of the palace and enjoy a glimpse of grandeur in Corfu. 

3. Head up high to Paleokastritas Monastery

Situated on the northwestern side of the island, the hilltop monastery is a must when on the island. Take a colourful headscarf and get ready to explore its nooks and crannies. Walk up the stairs to reach the intricate bell tower and admire the flower garden – you might even get to greet the monks wandering around. Soak up the views of the cove below. It’s the perfect spot to unwind after your visit. 

4. Visit the best beaches and visit nearby islands  

While Corfu is an island of beaches and natural beauty, don’t miss the chance to hop on a boat to visit the neighbouring islands of Paxos and Antipaxos. Sit back and relax as you glide along the sea, visiting blue lagoons and sea caves along the way. Jump off the boat and swim in clear waters, visit the cute fishing port of Paxos. You’ll get a taste of the Caribbean with a swim at Paradise Beach in Antipaxos. Boat tours to the unspoiled islands of Sivota are also a must. 

5. Soak up the love at Sidari Love Canal

Located in the north of the island in Sidari – one of Corfu’s top areas for nightlife – is where you’ll find the natural sandstone rocks of the Canal d’Amour. This unique geological formation creates a natural fjord-like canal in the sea and according to local legend, couples who swim here will stay in love forever. A top tip is to head here to watch the sunset. It’ll blow you away. 

6. Enjoy a splash at Aqualand Corfu Water Park

With 51 slides, pools and games – all ages will have a blast here. If you’re looking for high-speed and giant drops, whizz down the Hydrotube, or get ready for take-off on the Catapault or 24-meter Free Fall. Float along the lazy river to relax and soak up the sun and little visitors can enjoy dedicated themed areas too. There’s a variety of dining options to grab a refreshing drink or a bite to eat. 

Plan your visit to Corfu

When is the best time to visit Corfu?

The best time to visit Corfu is from late May to early October. The island’s peak tourist season is July and August, with hot temperatures and a lively atmosphere. If you want a more quiet experience, consider visiting in late May to early June or September to early October. You’ll still get nice weather but smaller crowds. Late autumn and winter (November to mid-December) bring cooler temperatures and occasional rainfall, making it less ideal for outdoor activities.

How many days should I spend in Corfu?

A stay of five to seven days is ideal for experiencing Corfu, allowing time to explore different parts of the island, plenty of beaches, historical sites, and soak up the local atmosphere.

Where are the best beaches in Corfu?

Corfu is overflowing with post-card beaches from top to toe of the island. Paleokastritsa on the island’s west coast is renowned for its crystal-clear waters and lush surroundings, overlooked by the hilltop monastery. Glyfada is known for its golden sands and vibrant atmosphere, perfect for beach activities and water sports. You’ll find lots of natural gems on the east side of the island including Ipsos, Dassia, Barbati and beaches around Corfu Old Town. Head to Kassiopi, Roda or Sidari – to swim in the Canal d’Amour – in the north of the island or down south for some rugged beauty of Kavos.
