Corfu is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all the Greek islands. The island offers a beguiling landscape of wild flowers, cypress trees, olive trees and luxurious sandy beaches. The west coast of the island boasts some of the prettiest countryside and small coves with sandy beaches surrounded by cliffs and trees. The north is defined by a rocky coastline where the crystal clear water has chopped into pebbled bays and coves.
The name Corfu (Kèrkyra) names not only the island, but also its capital, which is a beautiful, sophisticated and charming town. It is also one of the most elegant island capitals in the whole of Greece, as it was modernised for the 1994 EU summit.
