Corfu, a Greek island in the Ionian Sea, is an extremely popular holiday destination for Britons. And it’s easy to see why. Booking flights to Corfu with Monarch is easy and cheap, and there are plenty of great hotel deals available, making sure your holiday to the island is one to remember.
Holidays to Corfu allow you to make the most of the island’s fantastic climate, and resorts such as Kavos, Kassiopi and Sidari offer a phenomenal blend of sun-drenched beaches, crystal clear seas and busy bars and nightclubs. Party all night and sleep on the beach all day, or enjoy some of the many watersports on offer for a more active trip.
More than just a party island, Corfu also has a rich history and heritage, and there are many festivals throughout the year which visitors are invited to join. Many Greeks are very religious, and Saints’ Feast Days in particular are causes for celebration. There are also plenty of non-religious festivals, predominately based around the nation’s other major love – food. These include the Pie Festival in Loustri on 1 September, and the Sardine Festival in Benitses in mid-August. Another major highlight is the festival held on 6 August in the mountain village of Agios Mattheos, a celebration that involves the entire village and lasts all night. Given the picturesque beach nearby, it makes a great destination for a couple of days, letting you soak up the sun and the atmosphere.
The beautiful island of Corfu blends natural beauty with friendly people, ancient culture and modern amenities. With plenty of cheap flights available, it really is the perfect holiday destination.
