Corfu is Greece’s second largest Ionian island which is a popular holiday destination especially for relaxing type of holiday as Corfu has some of the best beaches in Greece going with blue flag awards. Corfu also has its fair share of top class attractions and reading through this article you’ll discover what the best attractions are this year on the island.
Visit the biggest water park in Corfu located in the heart of the island which is very easy to find in the village of Agios Loannis. The water park offers so many water attractions for a variety of ages whether you’re 8 years old or 12 years plus there is a children’s area, family area and then the extreme slides for the thrill seeking people. In terms of full day prices 0-4 year olds get in free, 5-12 year olds 17 Euros, 13-65 years old 25 Euros and 65 years old plus 17 Euros so it’s what you’d expect to pay for a water park but do remember the water park is only open from 12th May until mid October. They’re a total of 36 different slides ranging from your extreme Kamikaze slide dropping from 12 metres or go racing down the multi hill slides with your family.
Pyramid Adventure Park
This is an ideal place to go as a family as there are plenty of things you can do in the Pyramid Adventure Park which is found in a small village called St Spyridon. The adventure park offers different attractions the likes of crazy mini golf or have a drive on the go-karts or for the younger ones they can go on the swings or slides. After you finished having fun in the adventure park then why not head over to the Pyramid restaurant which overlooks the beautiful sea and offers great meals ranging from a variety of pizzas to speciality fish dishes with excellent customer service to make you enjoy your stay in the restaurant.
The Achilleion Palace is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Corfu which can be found in the village of Gastouri. Before you even step into the palace you’ll discover statues based outside of the building inspired by Greek mythology and this really is a place where your camera is essential as you’ll get some beautiful shots. By visiting this palace you’ll be taken back in history as this palace was once occupied by two great figures in the name of Empress Elisabeth of Austria and Kaiser William II of Germany.
Museum of Asian Art
If you’re into the artistic side of the world then you’ll love this museum filled to the brim with Asian art which is very unique to Greece and may just well be the only Asian art museum in Greece. The museum holds collections of very rare artefacts coming from the likes of Japan, China, and Korea over centuries and the museum is very well spaced out and has plenty of exhibitions to view.
For great holiday offers including up to 25% off on all inclusive holidays then I highly recommend Directline Holidays.
