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.

Driving tips

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.

Not to be missed

A picture-perfect pit stop
Porto Timoni
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
Mount Pantokrator
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.

Dining tips

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.

Popular places to:

  • Eat on the beach– Boukari Beach Taverna
  • Eat in the mountains – Pink Panther, Pelekas
  • Eat in the countryside – The Old Perithia, Peritheia
  • Eat in the city – The Venetian Well, Corfu Town
