If you’re spending your summer vacation in Corfu and you think you’ve seen it all, think again. Here’s our list of some of the best boat trips you can take from Corfu for an unforgettable experience.
Indulge in a Cruise to the Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon is a fantastic beach which reminds of the most exotic destinations you could ever dream of. It is situated on a tiny islet near Syvota, a fishing village on the coast that faces Corfu in continental Greece. This beach features incredibly crystal clear waters so much so that the boats which float in the sea look as though they are gliding in the air. The best way to enjoy the Blue Lagoon is by joining a full day cruise that will also take you to a couple of other stunning beaches in the area.
Explore the Shore of Albania
The Albanian coast boasts quite a few breathtakingly beautiful beaches that are really worth checking out. Spending at least one week exploring the sandy beaches and hidden coves of Albania would be ideal. However, if you don’t have that much time at your disposal, you should at least plan a day trip from Corfu to neighboring Albania so as to get a taste of the country’s charms.
In order to make the most of your Albanian adventure and also save valuable time, make sure you choose a guided tour that includes a visit to Buntrit, a fascinating ancient town that has been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status since 1997.
Visit Stunning Paxi Island
Few islands in Greece enjoy the utterly peaceful ambience of Paxi. The latter is a super tiny island which features pristine beaches, few visitors and authentic hospitality centered around the picturesque Gaios Port.
Paxi is an island of lush greenery and unique natural beauty. While there, don’t miss a trip to the Blue Caves, the amazing rock formations that soar above the most turquoise waters you have ever seen. Antipaxi is yet another small island to the south of Paxi which features equally gorgeous beaches and landscape.
