The 10 Most Amazing Corfu Beach Hotels

Before I share the 10 most amazing Corfu beach hotels, lets go over the facts and information you’ll want to know before you go. Corfu is considered to be the most beautiful of all the Greek islands. The island offers a beautiful landscape of wild flowers, cypress trees, olive trees and wonderful sandy beaches. The west coast of the island boasts some of the prettiest countryside and small coves with sandy beaches surrounded by cliffs and trees. The north is defined by a rocky coastline where the crystal clear water has chopped into pebbled bays and coves.

Whether you’re looking for quiet sands with calm waters or pebbly beaches with plenty of nearby amenities, you’ll find it on Corfu. Enjoy some fun in the sun, and explore the island’s unique historical and religious attractions. Visit the most amazing beaches of Greece here, or on Pinterest.

Corfu Weather – When to Visit

The best times to visit Corfu are April to May and September to November. There is never really a bad season in the Mediterranean, but winter temperatures are too chilly to swim off the shores of Corfu, while the summer months will be very crowded. The shoulder seasons, offer warm, sunny weather and plenty of bargain-priced hotel rooms, not to mention some exciting special events like Carnival.

April to May offers pleasant weather and miles of sandy beaches free of fellow sunbathers. Although high temperatures only reach the 60s and 70s, there will be plenty of clear skies. This is the season of Greek Easter, so book your hotel at least a month in advance to ensure a place to stay for the celebrations.

During June thru August, temperatures are in the upper 80s, which is a great time to spend at the beach. But you will be sharing the beach with plenty of other visitors. Reserve your hotel room at least a month in advance to ensure availability and the lowest price possible. Brace yourself for lines out the door at many of the best sites and restaurants.

For a relaxed Corfu vacation with prime beach weather and hardly any crowds, plan a trip during September to November. Average highs in September are in the low 80s, perfect for a swim in the Mediterranean. Temperatures do decline steadily as November approaches to the mid 60s. The weather is ideal for hiking and sightseeing during this time though.

    Wow, I love the lagoon look of the Corfu Beach destinations that you have featured here! I don’t normally look for beaches with cold water, but Paleokastritsa is just too inviting!! I especially appreciate that the beach hotels look to be such a great value for the money. I am definitely adding this to my travel bucket list!

      Great Aly, you’d be surprised how refreshing the water feels when its warm outside.  I know here where I am at, when the water is warm it just feels like a bathtub LOL.  Thanks for stopping by.

    Do you know if dolphins are found in Corfu? When do you think is the best month to visit if you want to see dolphins? I enjoy going out on boats for dolphin sightings and just enjoying the views. Is that something you can find here? I’m going to look further into this. It’s so beautiful there!

    When I read something about Greece, Most of the time it was about the ancient emperors and historic cities. But when I see about the beautiful beaches and the hotels I wish to plan my annual travel plans to Greece this time. If you can express more ideas about the family-friendly facilities about the hotels, it would be a great help for me to plan my travel destinations this year. 

    thanks

    Are there such a thing as beach Air BnB’s? I am not much of a hotel fan and I try to avoid them at all cost so I would rather look for a bnb. But I must say, these hotels sound pretty amazing so I will have a look at them and let you know what I think about them

      Hmm, I do add B&B’s if they have decent ratings.  I stick to the top-rated accommodations, and so if I don’t list one, that doesn’t there aren’t any, it just means I didn’t find the ratings high enough.

    Another perfect vacation destination!  I love to read these and wonder what I’m going to do when I get there!  I’ve heard wonderful things about Greece (and saw the movie “Mama Mia”) so I would love to go!  What is Carnival?  When is it?  Is it the same as Greek Easter?  I want to go when these exciting events are taking place.

      The famous Carnival of Corfu has its roots in the Middle Ages when the Venetians conquerors of the island brought this custom back from their homeland. Today, the Carnival of Corfu resembles a lot to the Carnival of Venice and includes many funny happenings. It usually takes place at the end of February or early March with much popularity.  Hope this helps 🙂

    Hi reading, reading this and seeing the beautiful  images of Corfu, make me want to go there today and escape the snowy winter. Being able to combine the spectacular scenery with activities like tandem paragliding and a private yacht tour, sounds like an idyllic holiday to me. 

    Doing an olive oil workshop and tasting tour would definitely also be on my bucket list while visiting Corfu. Thank you for sharing and bringing to life this beautiful destination.
