For a long time, Corfu has been a favorite holiday destination not only for Europeans, but for tourists from all over the world as well. Thanks to the hectic nightlife, splendid weather, as well as its rich history and culture, this Greek island belongs to the top holiday destinations in Europe.
Despite the economic crisis, the sun is shining as it did before, and the number of tourists is still growing every year, turning the island into one of the best resorts for families with different income levels. In year 2015, Corfu became the most visited tourist destination in Greece. It was especially popular with families. Why is this beautiful island worth visiting in summer 2016.
Weather in Greece is always mild and sunny. The island of Corfu is located in the western part of the country, which makes the place one of the most warm and attractive for family holiday.
Southern winds increase the air and water temperature on the island. Furthermore, the guests of the island can enjoy magnificent picturesque views. From September to May, the above mentioned winds bring tropical rains to the island, but they only add a special atmosphere to the weather and allow to grow a good harvest of vegetables and fruit.
From happening and fun Kavos to quiet and peaceful Corfu town, the island resorts offer an unforgettable holiday for tourists, meeting every taste and budget. Those, who want to rent a luxury villa, should prefer luxury Kassiopi in the north-east of Corfu. But the holiday here is far from economical family vacation. Densely populated Kavos with its multiple clubs has always been popular with the British, offering them beautiful beaches, a large hotel room capacity and affordable prices for a good holiday for families with children. For its part, Corfu is something in between these two resorts. A lucky combination of splendid views and a large hotel variety, ranging from guest-houses, offering bed and breakfast, up to huge hotels replete with every comfort. A place you are going to stay at depends on your budget. But there are many other towns on the island, such as Roda, Gouvia and Agios Gordios.
Staying on the island of Corfu with your family, you can discover lots of interesting activities. Swimming, diving, water skiing and boating to the nearby islands of the Ionian Sea. Become closer to the nature by climbing up Pantocrator and enjoying the highland views of neighboring Albania or by feeding burros in Paleokastritsa. And there is a huge aqua park with various water slides for both children and adults in the town of Agios Ioannis.
That’s why the island of Corfu claims to be the best family resort in the coming season.
