Why Choose a Holiday on Corfu?

Why Choose a Holiday on Corfu?, Corfu, Guides, Agni Travel

The island of Corfu is located just off the West coast of Greece. Corfu enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate along with excellent beaches making it a popular destination for holiday makers. Corfu is very green compared to other Greek islands: hot and dry summers along with winter rain creates lush vegetation which is dominated by over 2 million olive trees. These olive trees on Corfu are the main cultivation, although Corfu's tourism now provides the most income.

Why Choose a Holiday on Corfu?, Corfu, Guides, Agni Travel

Many overlook Corfu thinking that it has become spoiled by tourism. Thankfully, this is not the case. There are many quiet areas where you can enjoy a traditional Greek island holiday; little beaches and coves all to yourself, or a visit into the mountain villages where there is no sign of tourism!

One highlight of your Corfu holiday will be a trip on the evening 'speedboat taxi' to Taverna Agni. The boat collects from the Bays of Saint Stephanos, Kouloura, Kalami, Kaminaki and Nissaki.

Corfu - So Easy to Get To

Another advantage of Corfu is the ease of getting there. There are regular flights from most European cities with flight times less than 3 hours.
