In this blog post, we are about to give you answers to the above mentioned questions. And of course, to convince you to visit this pretty island of Greece, Corfu!


Corfu is a quite big island. Unlike Mykonos (85 km²), Santorini (76km²) and Paros (196km²), Corfu has an area of 583km²! And each km² has to offer so many things! Our advice for how many days in Corfu, is simply as many days as possible. A minimum of 4 nights, and a maximum of 7 nights! If you want to add more islands in your trip like the Paxous, then you must add + 2 days.

The old town, the crystal clear waters, the “bali” style beaches, the private caves, the local restaurants, the villages, the views, the fortresses and many more are some of the reasons to visit Corfu.

7 days in Corfu or 4 days , no matter what, keep reading because we are about to save you so much time from researching.

If you are like us, and you want to explore Corfu island and you also want more flexibility, then the only option is by renting a car ! It is actually the best way to get around Corfu and what we recommend! There are many car rental companies in Corfu, however we found out that only local Corfu Car Rentals are offering great prices! The one we found is called Sunrise Rental Corfu and the good thing about them is that they don’t need any deposit! For our 7 days in Corfu, we rented a manual car for 203 Euros! You can book yours from their website.

Additionally, another way to get around Corfu is by Taxi. For long distances although it can be quite expensive. Routes from Airport to Old Town are about 10 – 12 euros. Finally, if you are on a budget, you can combine Taxis for the short routes, and buses for the long ones. Bus tickets prices start from 1.20euros to 5.00 euros.


Canal D’amour & Cape Drastis, located in the northern side of Corfu, are 2 must seen areas. With natural bays, caves and crystal clear waters, they are definitely worth spending there 1 day during your 7 days in Corfu.

Porto Timoni feels like you are in Bali! 2 hidden beached just below Afionas village. A scenic place that deserves the 40 minute hiking to get there! Just make sure to wear comfortable shoes and get plenty of water!

La Grotta a stunning outdoor beach bar that is not a hidden gem. We arrived there late, and it was PACKED! If you really want to enjoy its beauty, we suggest you to get there as early as possible. As soon as the bar opens you will only have 1-2 hours the place for your self.

Glyfada Beach preferred by the locals, with many beach bars, green mountains and an area that is nudist friendly!

Agios Gordios, feels like paradise. The stones and the trees there makes it feel like you are in Vietnam! If you choose to go there make sure to go to Ortholithi Restaurant. 2 sunbeds and 1 umbrella cost 8 euros. And you can go up to the restaurant to eat your fresh Sardines and fish!


Cave Megalo Spilaio – Rovinia Beach, The road to get there is a bit difficult, however it is a must for your trip of 7 days in Corfu ! Be prepared for some off-road conditions. As soon as you get there you will find out the Cave Megalo Spilaio, which is like a private beach. Check out our Reel on Instagram here.

Danilia Village, This is a private property and only way to get in is to stay at Grecotel Corfu Imperial. A picturesque village that manages to revive images of the Corfiot life back in history. A village that was selected from many producers / directors for their movies and clips.

Old Fortress, With only 6 euros per person, this fortress will leave you speechless. Make sure to go to the Old Fortress and not the New one. It is walking distance from the old town and as soon as you enter the gate, be prepared to see some amazing buildings like the Saint George Church!

Liston Square, located in the Old Town, this square back in history were only accessible for people of the high society and people that were included in a Guest List. List in greek, is “Lista”, and this is where it got its name.

Corfu Old Town, get ready to get lost in the famous Kantounia! Kantounia are the little streets of Corfu Town. Some of them are so tight, that only 2 people side by side can walk in. The old town has so many restaurants, cafes, shops and many more. For us it is the best location to stay during your trip, 7 days in Corfu.
