Corfu's Top Five Most Instagrammable Spots

November 09, 2021
'Picturesque' doesn't even begin to describe Greece's Corfu island. This destination is beautiful, paradisical, not to mention sunny and charming. It's no wonder the island is on the rise to becoming one of the most popular tourist hotspots among the Greek Islands. It's one where visitors won't just see another side of Greece's beauty, but it's also a treasure trove of Instagrammable spots. One trip here and you can fill your timeline with images that won't just garner a lot of likes, but also make for a rather sunny look for your page. And among the most beautiful sites in Corfu, here are the top five you just have to post about.

Corfu's Top Five Most Instagrammable Spots


Corfu Town

It shouldn't surprise anyone that the island's capital, Corfu Town, is one big Instagrammabel spot. Thanks to the Venetian influence, as well as the Greek countryside charm, the bustling city is the very definition of idyllic, despite the hustle and bustle. With a slight Medieval vibe and a Mediterranean atmosphere, it's no wonder Corfu Town is one of the most visited towns on the island. Practially every corner is Instagram-worthy, from the crowded marketplace to the narrow alleyways. And you can just imagine the romantic scenes and dramatic events that once transpired on these very streets.

7th Heaven

No, this doesn't pertain to the late 90s and early 2000s hit TV series of the same name. In Corfu, 7th Heaven is arguably the most popular cafe on the entire island. Perched atop a cliff by the cost of Peroulades in Corfu, the views from this place are second to none. Beyond its menu of local food, its glass-paned terrace is its most famous feature, offering up stunning views of the Ionian Sea and all its glory. You also shouldn't miss taking a selfie on the glass-floored part of the terrace so you can show off how brave you are to venture to this part of the cafe.

Any Beach on Corfu

As with any other Greek Island, from Santorini to Crete, Corfu is filled with stunning coasts. And it's safe to say that practically all of them are Instagrammable! To say that these coastlines are Mother Nature's best works is an understatement. These beaches are some of the most beautiful in the region. The double beach that contains Porto Timoni and Limni, for instance, makes for a great scenic shot that will capture anyone's attention. The glorious rock formations in Canal d' Amour beach, on the other hand, will likely help you gain a lot of likes and more followers on Instagram.

Achilleion Palace

Of course, a list of Instagram-worthy spots in Corfu, or on any Greek island for that matter, isn't complete without one or two historic sites. And on this island, the Achilleion Palace ticks that box! Located in the coastal town of Gastouri, this grand palace served as the vacation home of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, or more commonly remembered as Empress Sisi. The neoclassical structure, decorated with Greek statues, combine the opulence of both Austria and Italy with the historic appeal of Greece. It's safe to say you won't find a site like this anywhere else!

The Old Fortress

Located a hop and a skip away from the island's capital, the Old Fortress is the type of Instagrammable historic site you'd expect on an island like Corfu. Known as either the 'Old Fortress of Corfu' or the 'Venetian Fortress,' the place is actually made up of two must-see sights. The first is the actual Venetian fortress itself, perched atop the promontory with most of its Medieval glory still preserved. The second, and arguably more famous one, is the Church of St. George, a smaller temple that almost looks like a more preserved mini version of Athens's iconic Pantheon.
