Hire a car in Corfu
The seventh-largest Greek Isle, Corfu is an exciting place to explore by car.
Being the greenest of the Ionian archipelago, it surprises visitors with extensive and lush mountain vistas. But fear not, as with all the Greek islands, Corfu boasts its fair share of secluded coves, rippling waters and traditional tavernas.
Enjoy the roads
Be prepared for narrow mountain roads if you're heading into higher terrain, as well as lots of bends. A smaller car can be a wise way to go. Take your time with the drive, and relax. Don't expect to rush from place to place – the roads aren't really designed for it.

A picture-perfect pit stop
Beaches don't get much more dramatically beautiful than this. On a tiny peninsular near the top of the island is a two sided seaside sensation. Porto Timoni Beach really is a natural wonder which you'd be crazy to miss out on. Thought to be one of the best beaches in the world, it's a challenge to reach the sand, but a worthy one. So, embrace the hike down dusty mountain paths and scrublands.
A stately promenade
The Liston – Corfu Town
Watch the world go by whilst sipping coffee and tasting Greek and Italian delights or take a leisurely stroll in the sun. This lovely area is the main hub of Corfu Town, and Venetian architecture is outstanding. With its cafe culture, you may feel some fairly Parisian vibes here too.
A colossal climb
With the highest peak on the island of Corfu, Mount Pantokrator is a place where the views will stay with you. The journey there is an exciting drive, and there are wonderful villages to stop off at on the way up. Once you reach the summit, you'll be rewarded with panoramic views of the island stretching out to Albania on the mainland.
There's so much choice for food on the Greek Islands. From sticky baklava in all different shapes, sizes and flavours, to traditional savoury dishes such as sofrito (garlic and vinegar flavoured veal) and kreatopita (famous meat pie topped with filo). Here are some tips and inspiration when on the isle of Crete.
- It's common to eat late in Greece, so you may have to adjust your body clock to fit in with taverna serving times. Around 9pm is a good bet.
- If a restaurant serves house-barrelled wine, you'll get a better deal than ordering a bottle.
- Out of season (November - March) many of the restaurants will be closed, so you'll have fewer dining options.
- Tipping is generally achieved by rounding up the bill.

The Crete experience
An unforgettable beach – Barbati
On the northeastern coast of Corfu is a beach with a green backdrop. Verdant hills surround the beautifully clean Barbati beach, and smooth white pebbles add to its charm.
The waters are known for being clear and warm which makes them great for shallow snorkeling with the fish. There's parking, sun loungers for rent and a range of lovely tavernas in the vicinity.
A piece of tradition – Liapades
If you're seeking a traditional Corfiot village, head to Liapades. Uncover one of the oldest villages in Corfu atop an extensive network of hills blanketed by vegetation.
The village itself is a maze of donkey tracks and old cobbled streets, and the surrounding landscape is fantastic. The altitude lets you appreciate the deep blue ocean and secluded coves (many of which are only accessible by boat) from above.
The wonder of nature – Paxos Blue Caves
A boat tour is a great way to complete your trip to Corfu, and with magical destinations like the Blue Caves out to sea, there's lots to see.
The island of Paxos is just south of Corfu, and legends of how it was created are linked to Poseidon and Aphrodite. Here you'll find many gorgeous sea caves which are swimmable.
