Its useless to deny that the south coast approaching Corfu town is tacky and overdeveloped but the rest of the island is still pretty wonderful.
There are many, many, many trees ranging from olives to Cypresses, tons of beaches and lots of wildflowers too.
Over 5,000 Britons live on Corfu and over a million visit annually.
The Greeks call Corfu, 'Kerkyra' and have done since ancient times but today you'll find it has an Itallianate flavor as well as an English and Greek one.
This is a cosmopolitan island with something for everyone from its rich history to its wonderful beaches and resorts and cuisine. Corfu has 2 ports and an airport! Also see Eco-Corfu and Corfu Island Guide.
