Corfu is a beautiful green island, the second largest and most popular destination in the Ionian Sea.
It is composed of white sandy beaches, natural wonders, an active nightlife and stunning mountains. During the summer months it´s very crowded, especially with young backpackers looking to party and simply have fun.
Of course, beside this there are still many quiet and peaceful places to stay and enjoy on the island.
I love the atmosphere here and I like the mix of Greek and Italian culture. Greece is Greece and everyone will agree with stunning nature and natural attractions.
If you get a chance, visit Corfu! It’s one of my favourite destinations in Greece!
We rented a scooter (it only cost us 40€ including insurance) and we drove almost the entire island and stopped at beautiful beaches.
Because it was May there weren´t many tourists which is always very convenient being a blogger or photographer as you don’t want to have other people in your pictures or videos. :D
For those who love adventures and nature though Corfu is your island!

The centre of Corfu town has a definitive Venetian style, while the coastline seems like an exotic world away. You can spend hours getting lost on the cobblestone streets.

Inside the fortress is the church of St. George. Hike all the way to the top for panoramic views of the Corfu Town.
See the Church of Saint Spyridon
The exterior of the church is typical of the Venetian architecture. This 300 years old church is full of ancient relics and amazing paintings. Bell tower is the highest point in the town.
