The Most Romantic Things To Do in Corfu

November 05, 2021
Arguably the best part about the Greek Islands is that many of them are relatively remote, with many areas remaining untouched and undeveloped. And while this may hinder them when it comes to attracting a ton of tourists, this ironically makes them the perfect honeymoon destinations. This rings especially true when it comes to Corfu. The island has a lot of potential to become one of the top go-to islands for a romantic getaway. But what is there to do here that's romantic? What can couples do here to bond, strengthen their relationship, and even get into the mood? Well, here are a few good suggestions.

The Most Romantic Things To Do in Corfu


Take A Stroll Throughout Corfu Town

Practially all of the towns in Corfu make for a great place to have a romantic stroll with your significant other. From Dassia to Agios Gordios, they're all so inexplicably charming and utterly beautiful. But Corfu Town is truly something else. Sure, it's the island's capital, making it the busiest area of them all, but truth be told, that's part of why it's a romantic place. As you walk with your partner hold hands, see the amazing sights, bask in its Venetian-style beauty, and feel the Greek countryside vibe, all while other people go about their day, you get a good sense that you're walking down the path of many lovers in the past.

See The Palaces and Fortresses

Speaking of lovers in the past, or the past in general, why not go to some of Corfu's historic sites with your significant other. A great way to get to know your partner is to see them learn, discover new things, and absorb all sorts of information as you go through life together. What better places to do just that than to see the most historic parts of the island? Coincidentally, these are also some of the most Instagram-worthy spots in Corfu too. The likes of the Old Fortress, the Achilleion Palace, the Vlacherna Monastery, and more make for great places to visit with your significant other. Not to mention enjoying some peace and quiet in the abandoned 14th-century town of Old Perithia.

Go On An Olive Tour

Vineyards and olive gardens are some of the most charming places to visit on any Greek Island. From Kefalonia to Santorini, these places offer a peaceful refuge paired with natural beauty. Not to mention a slice of Greek culture that you might find fascinating. Here in Corfu, The Governor's Olive Mill offers the best olive tour for you and your partner. Not only will you get to learn how the island's olive oil is made, but you also get to bask in the natural countryside beauty of Corfu. Also, it's no secret that cooking is a great way to bond with your partner and a bottle of Greek olive oil will surely help with that!

Travel By Moped

Although public transport in Corfu is efficient enough, at times, it can get in the way of your trip a lot. Especially if you went to Corfu for your honeymoon or for just a simple romantic getaway. This is why many visitors, particularly couples, would rather rent their own vehicles here than rely on a bus or taxi to get around. And if you truly want to see Corfu in all its natural glory, renting a moped and driving all around the island with just the two of you is your best bet. Imagine how romantic it'd be if you freely explored Corfu with the wind in your faces and feeling the freedom you won't find anywhere else!

Escape To A Remote Beach

It's shouldn't surprise you that one of, if not the most romantic place in Corfu, or on any other Greek island for that matter, is a remote beach. With the sand and sea reserved just for you, there are plenty of ways to get intimate and strengthen your relationship here. Fortunately, Corfu is practically a treasure trove of beautiful beaches, many of which are remote and practically untouched. Porto Timoni, Limni, Rovina, and Mirtiotissa beaches are some of the best examples. Choose any of these amazing coastlines and you're guaranteed to truly experience how much of a romantic destination Corfu really is.

Sail Along The Ionian Sea

Why stop at the beach? If you truly want to have privacy in (or in this case, near) Corfu, then rent a boat and sail away to the Ionian Sea. After all, island-hopping is a popular way to spend your day on the island. With just the two of you and the sun and the sea to look forward to, some much-needed romance time awaits. It's a good thing that boat rentals are just as common in Corfu as car and moped rental services. You'll find many along the coasts of the islands, particularly near the resort towns.

Despite lacking in fame and popularity, Corfu is actually a great place for a honeymoon. In fact, its underrated reputation may actually work to its advantage, offering a ton of romantic experiences you won't find anywhere else.

Don't forget that simply spending time with your significant other in your own luxury home in Corfu is also another romantic thing to do on this island.
