With either option, you’ll arrive by boat having sailed from Imerolia port in the north of Corfu. And as you come into the harbour, you’ll be granted a special viewpoint over its hilltop fortress and skyline.
You’ll then have some free time in the morning or late afternoon to explore at your own pace and to decide exactly what you would like to do. You’ll have enough time that you won’t feel rushed, as Corfu town is a place where you can spend hour after hour.
Beauty spots of the north
You’ll discover all things beautiful on this half-day tour around Corfu. Travel around the north of the island where stunning heart-shaped bays appear nestled between lush green pockets and traditional villages give you a glimpse into island life. You’ll start at Paleokastritsa and travel on to Lakones, Bella Vista and Makrades all in just one morning.
Paleokastritsa is known for its picturesque seaside village and long winding stretches of secluded bays where crystal clear water glitters against soft white sand. After some free time at the beach, you’ll continue on to the typical hilltop village of Lakones with colourful white and blue houses all huddled together overlooking the bay.
Admire the panoramic views over the coastline from Bella Vista and head to the village of Makrades, famous for local handicrafts. You’ll have some time to browse for souvenirs including olive oil, honey and lace, then head back to your hotel with the entire afternoon ahead of you.
Theo’s Boat BBQ
The azure waters and secluded coves of eastern Corfu are ideal for a day at sea. On Theo’s boat, you’ll cruise past dramatic coastline to picturesque places where you can sit back and relax with a tasty barbecue on the beach – exclusively for TUI guests.
Once you step aboard Theo’s boat, you’ll be able to forget all your worries as we sail past coves, bays, soaring cliffs and beaches. Jump into the sea for a swim, relax on deck and enjoy a day out with all the family. The local crew are a barrel of laughs. We’ll sail towards Kalamas beach on the west coast of the mainland.
Come lunchtime, the crew will rustle up a barbecue on the beach served with free-flowing wine and soft drinks. And if that’s not enough, there’s also be fun and games for the kids so that you can put your feet up. You might even be joined by a dolphin or two along the way. Also, Theo has a great ear for music – so expect tunes to match the mood.
Make an afternoon out in Corfu town a memorable one. This excursion includes a guided walking tour through Corfu town and is followed by a boat trip in the waters off the capital. You’ll also enjoy dinner in a nice restaurant. This is one of our TUI Collection excursions, which give you a local flavour of the destination while showcasing its unique, authentic and responsible values.
You’ll kick things off by making your way down the narrow cobbled streets of the capital, passing the ramparts of the old castle as you go – with your knowledgeable guide giving you plenty of insight into some quirky points of interest.
Then, it’s time to drop into a taverna for a traditional Greek dinner. The evening ends in style, with a sundowner harbour cruise back. Sit back on deck and watch the reflection of the town lights dance on the water as you glide unhurriedly back to port.
Parga and Paxos Boat Trip
Spending the day discovering Greek islands and towns by boat is a picture-perfect way of exploring in and around Corfu. You’ll see the pretty pastel coloured town of Parga and be able to delight in the turquoise water and Greek culture that oozes from the small but mighty island of Paxos.
Leaving Corfu behind us we’ll start our boat trip by travelling towards Parga located on mainland Greece. Surrounded by mountains around a secluded bay, its characteristic pastel coloured houses are from images you see in postcards. You’ll be able to enjoy some free time to explore its pretty streets and soak up the relaxed atmosphere in a place where Greek tourists also come for food and scenery.
Next, you’ll visit the island of Paxos, a gift from the God of the Sea, Poseidon, to his lover. Simply put, it’s spectacular, and a place where you can easily watch the world go by. You’ll have some more free time to wander around before returning to Corfu.
Corfu by Night
Once the sun begins to set over Corfu, you might be wondering what’s in store for the evening ahead. Corfu town might just be the answer you’re looking for with its top restaurants and bars as well as beautiful night-time walks. Join this two-way transfer and enjoy everything it has to offer.
You’ll be picked up from your hotel and dropped off in the capital in the early evening where you’ll then have plenty of time to yourself. Pick a local taverna or restaurant for dinner, sip on an aperitif and slowly amble along its cobbled streets. You’ll be able to soak up its Venetian charm and explore what’s on offer at your own pace.
Corfu town has something for everyone, whether you want an evening out with your family, or some special time with your loved one – this transfer takes the stress out of planning how to get there and back. Later in the evening you’ll be transferred back to your hotel ready for another day on this beautiful island.
Pirates of Corfu
Pirate Tim and Calypso the Parrot need your help to find their lost treasure. But first you need to be fully trained in all the skills you need to become a TUI Pirate.
You’ll join our crew in search of the booty, and along the way everyone will get into the pirate spirit with some help from the pirate team on the boat. There’ll be lots of fun activities for everyone to join in on.
For our little pirate crew, there’ll be face painting and lots of pirate-themed games to play and for the older pirate crew, there’ll be some pirate challenges to join in with. And no pirate adventure would be complete without a treasure map and clues to follow. There’ll be swashbuckling fun for the whole family to enjoy.
Day Trip to Albania
Albania is just a short boat ride from Corfu. This often-overlooked country was closed to outsiders for decades and it’s only now really beginning to flex its tourist muscles. On this full day excursion, you’ll visit the ruins of ancient Butrint, go for lunch and enjoy free time in Saranda.
The tour kicks off with a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Butrint. Everyone from the Greeks to Romans to Ottomans left their mark on this ancient town. Walking through its ruins is like leafing through the pages of a living history book. Highlights include the amphitheatre and temple.
A woodland stroll up to the Venetian hill fort will give you great views over the national park and the surrounding wetlands. Afterwards, you’ll head for a buffet lunch in the hamlet of Karanxh. Finally there’s an hour of free time to explore Saranda before returning to Corfu.
Aqualand with Transfer
Filled to the brim with rides, slides, pools and relaxation areas, there’s something for everyone at Aqualand in Corfu. What’s more, you won’t need to think about a thing – with transfers and admission all included, all you’ll need is your swimsuit, sun cream and excitement. Grab the kids and enjoy a family day out in the sun.
You’ll be amazed when you see the thrills and spills to be had at Aqualand, where the almost vertical Kamikaze ride will shoot you straight down and the Black Hole will make you lose your sense of direction. If you’re looking for something a bit more laid-back, the Lazy River and hot tub are just what you’re looking for, and the young ones can safely play in the huge shallow water pools or Caribbean adventure pool.
There’s also plenty of facilities at the waterpark including cafes, bars, restaurants, food outlets, ice cream shops and even arcade rooms. What’s more, you’ll find showers, changing rooms, sunbeds and parasols that make your day out even easier.
Sivota Blue Lagoon
Beautiful, secluded beaches, crystal clear waters and Ionian idyll. The west coast of mainland Greece is simply alluring. On this full day boat trip, you’ll visit the picturesque village of Sivota and stop for swims in the turquoise waters of the Blue Lagoon and Bella Vraka.
Leaving Corfu behind, the first stop is the Papanikolis sea cave, where you’ll be able to see the sea glittering on its roof. You’ll then have the opportunity to take a refreshing dip in the waters off the coast of the Blue Lagoon. Next, we’ll glide to Mourtemeno island for a swim near the tiny, palm-fringed Bella Vraka beach – where the translucent water is too tempting to resist – before lunch is served on board.
We’ll arrive at Sivota, where you’ll have some free time to wander around this pretty fishing village before we make our way back to Corfu. During the return journey, the captain will stop off Lefkimmi port so that you can see from the boat this charming seaside village.
