You will definitely want to make time to catch ‘The Kaiser throne,’ the sunset as seen from the quaint hilltop village of Pelekas which overlooks the sea.
Right at the heart of Corfu is Aqualand, one of the most prominent waterparks in Europe, hands down! When those temperatures start climbing, their 36 waterslides, 15 adventure pools, lazy river, wave pool, or a black hole will cool you off for sure!

Near the north is Hydropolis waterpark, another popular attraction that will definitely be a big hit with the kids!
Have some equestrian fun by taking your family through Corfu’s olive grove and vineyard adorned landscapes for a one of a kind scenic view from the back of a horse. Near the north side of the island, there are local courses available if your child is old enough and needs help learning to ride!
The historical roots of Corfu run deep so uncovering the many layers of its past and old traditions will be a great way to incorporate some fun activities that are still educational for your children. To behold traditional Venetian architecture, travel to the town of Kerkyra as known as Corfu Town. The ‘kantounia’ or narrow alleyways, arches, and buildings are classic of the Venetian style. The Old and New Fortresses are among numerous castles sprinkled around Corfu that are definitely worth a visit!
Check out the huge exhibit of cool sea creatures and reptiles that can be found at the Corfu aquarium, a family favorite no matter what age group.
