For an All Inclusive holiday with all the perks, try Corfu on for size
Flights from the UK to Corfu take just over three hours, so you’ll be sipping cocktails by the pool in no time at all.
Holidays to Corfu go All Inclusive on a few levels – at hotels, where meals, drinks and activities are part of your package, but the island itself is also a combo deal. Corfu is so close to Italy that it shares a climate with the country, and was once occupied by the Venetians. So really, holidays here are a two-for-one on the Mediterranean scale, too.
St Spyridon is a quiet resort where you’ll often have a free shuttle service to nearby destinations included, plus meals and alcoholic drinks. Messonghi offers a happening nightlife scene, not that you’d need it with drinks covered at your hotel. And Gouvia adds a platinum edge to Corfu, staying here gets you a wealth of hotel activities and dining spots.
Corfu is a top holiday destination for a number of reasons, but one that consistently tops the lists are this island’s array of dazzling beaches. St Spyridon offers two white sand beaches, one of which flies a Blue Flag. It’s not about noisy watersports here but pure and simple relaxation, with the exception of a few leisurely pedalo rides. Walk a little further up the beach and you’ll find tiny rock pools, too.
Gouvia is also home to several beaches that come in the sand, pebble and shingle variety. You’ll find similar laid-back vibes here, though there are definitely more opportunities for watersports. The same goes for lively Messonghi, though its shores are guarded by a grove of olive trees. On this stretch of Corfu, you can find waterfront tavernas and boat hires, plus rows and rows of sunloungers.
What's included in your holiday
Going All Inclusive usually means you’ll be afforded transport from the airport to your hotel, meals at the buffet restaurant and sometimes a la carte spots, many onsite sporting activities and occasionally alcoholic drinks, though hot and soft drinks are typically part of your package too. Regardless, you should always read the hotel information in advance to see exactly what’s included in your All Inclusive holiday.
