Café
“Corfu Town like any other medieval city is built between 2 fortresses, now known as the old and the new. The Old Venetian Fortress, a UNESCO listed monument is worth a visit. There is a delightful sea front restaurant inside (left route after main entrance) which is the locals' secret, as well as a cafe with sea views at its main square. Make sure to climb to the summit, the view will compensate your effort!”

Water Park
“Aqualand Corfu is the island’s biggest and most popular water park and offers themed zones catering for all ages, carefully watched over by qualified lifeguards. Stretching over an area of 130,000 sq ft (12,000 sq m) landscaped with lawns and mature maple trees, it is a family paradise of water rides and slides, lazy rivers and 15 swimming pools for a day of fun in the sun. Toddlers up to the age of four can enjoy shallow bathing pools with water showers, playing splashy games on Fantasy Island and exploring the Caribbean Pirate Adventure Pool. There’s a dedicated family area (kids must be aged eight and over) with giant slides, Jacuzzis, a lazy river and a wave pool. Adrenaline junkies can get their kicks from six extreme water ride ranging from the spiraling Hydrotube to the hair-raising Free Fall Plus, which plunges vertically for 80 ft (24 m) into deep water. Facilities include plenty of free sunbeds and parasols for shade and lockers to hire for a small charge of €5; there are changing rooms and showers as well as food outlets scattered throughout the park and stores selling sun lotion, rubber rings and pool toys.”

Scenic Lookout
“On the highest spot of Pelekas Village, on a huge cliff, there is a monument called Kaiser’s Throne, a name given from the German Emperor Wilhelm the Second, who used to observe Corfu’s natural beauty every time he wished to escape from his routine. The idyllic sunset and the unique panoramic view will definitely stay vivid in your minds while the sun will sink into the sea and Corfu will constantly switch colours from one minute to the other. A truly majestic experience you do not want to lose!”
