National Park
“The ancient ruins of Butrint famed for their size, beauty and tranquility are located approximately 18 km from Saranda. Butrint has a special atmosphere created by a combination of archaeology, monuments and nature in the Mediterranean. Butrint was officially recognized a UNESCO world heritage site in 1992. This recognition affirms its ancient and archeological appeal that has defied the forces of nature to preserve antiques that dates back to over 50,000 years ago. As a visitor to world recognized heritage site, you do not only get the rare chance of experiencing the ancient cultures, monuments, and civilizations but also enjoy the serene environment.”

“The ecosystem of Erimitis is situated along the coastline of Sinies in the municipality of Kassiopi which is found on the North-East coast of Corfu. This area is known for its beauty and great environmental importance. Its dense vegetation, crystal clear beaches and three lakes, merge as one not only to create a unique location but also one of the few unspoilt areas still remaining. Different hues of green and blue, smells of different herbs and the sea, accompany the visitor who is looking for a more meaningful and different kind of visit to our island.”

“Possibly one of the busier areas of Corfu Island, Sidari has a little gem that you should definitely see. Just shy of the town itself (to the west) is Canal d’Amour, one of Corfu’s most unique spots. Local folklore says that couples that swim through the channel will get married very soon, making it a perfect spot if you’re waiting for someone to pop the question! ”

Beach
“Wild, virgin, secret, unique. No electricity (a canteen serving snacks and refreshments is on power generator). You can reach this beautiful beach after short hiking. The road there is a bit rough for your tires.”

Beach
“Issos Beach is an open bay bordering Lake Korission to the south of the island" Traced by dunes, the golden sand at Issos seems to go on forever. If you want a bit more life and amenities close at hand you can stay close to the resort village of Agios Georgios on the east end. But you can also walk west and within a few minutes you’ll have broken away from the crowds. Further from civilisation, Issos Beach is also popular with naturists, while the reliable winds attract windsurfers and kite-surfers. ”

“Nestled in the north-west of Corfu, Palaiokastritsa is an intimate little village that is said to be the Greek mythological site of Scheria and the last spot Odysseus visited before returning home. Make sure to visit the monastery that goes all the way back to the 1200’s and take a dip on the main beach. It;s a great spot to spend a chilled morning in the sun.”
