9 Fun Things to do in Corfu

The things to do in Corfu are endless. Corfu or Kerkyra is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea, of the Ionian Islands and one of the most beautiful islands in Greece. It combines many water and land activities because of its beautiful sea world and nature.

Let’s find out some of the most fun activities to do when visiting Corfu.

See a shipwreck at Agios Gordios

If you venture around the headlands of Agios Gordios, you can see Shipwreck Cove and the remains of fishing boats. The area is very green and beautiful and makes for a perfect setting if you want to take a quad bike and tour through the vineyards, villages, and woodlands.

Go scuba diving on a reef

A popular & amazing activity is scuba diving where you venture into the depths of Corfu’s coastline waters. The local underwater life brings the reefs to life and is accessible to beginner divers. If you’re new to scuba diving altogether, you can easily find a PADI scuba-diving course at one of the dive shops. And we would strongly recommend you to do so, as, for the more experienced divers, plenty more exhilaration awaits. Coral caves, shipwrecks and secret spots only locals will tell you about.

Kayak and snorkel in the Sivota Islands

Explorer caps on everyone! Sail through the narrow channels of the islands and take out your cameras for the tropical Blue Lagoon. Once done admiring the mesmerizing views, find your perfect spot for snorkeling. If you want to step up your adventure, rent a kayak and explore the vast waters to feel closer to nature.

Sample vintage wines

Wine is probably one of the biggest parts of local culture & life in Corfu. You can taste its’ diverse flavors for yourself at wine tastings around the island. Local families who run wineries/vineyards host tours and tastings for sampling the good stuff, as well as learn more about the wine-making process in Cyprus, and how wineries utilize the local geology and weather to achieve the best wines possible.

Splash around at Aqualand

This one is for the families out there. Aqualand water park is a splashing place for all-day thrill-seekers of all ages. Outfitted with 49 slides, rip-roaring rides, and some of the most adventurous flumes in Europe. Relax and refuel at the food outlets before floating down the lazy river between the palm trees.

Go paragliding over Sidari Beach

Admire the stunning Corfu coastline by air. Over the golden sands of Sidari Beach, you can gaze down at one of the most stunning places on the island. Soar through on a thrilling tandem paraglide and see if you can spot the Canal d’Amour lagoon, and on a sunny day, even Albania is visible from your lofty position in the sky.

Take a scenic Vespa tour

Enjoy a meandering scooter excursion around some of the most beautiful parts of the island. This mini adventure allows you to discover the secrets of Corfu, with stops at local wineries, a folklore museum, and even an artisan sweet factory. It basically compliments any of the prior mentioned activities as well, so be sure to see what it is you’d want to do while traversing by scooter. We would recommend something not mentioned before, olive oil tastings at olive mills. But be sure to visit the Kaiser’s Throne in Pelekas, and marvel at the views he once did (no wonder, the place is stunning).

Take a hop-on hop-off Bus Tour

If you want to see the Old Town highlights in a single day, then ride the hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus and explore the top spots at your own pace.

A great option for those who want to remain independent during their exploration sessions. We would recommend seeing the Old Fortress, Palace of St. Michael and St. George, and the Vlaherna Monastery.

Visit the Corfu Aquarium

Specializing in local fish and reptiles, the local aquarium captures the essence of the island’s diverse marine life. While also offering a nice introduction to the marine life of Corfu and the Mediterranean. You can even hold a snake and pet an iguana. You can also up the adventure with a spin in the glass-bottom boat to see these species in their natural environment.
