Kommeno Bay

Kommeno Bay holidays

The small-but-luxury resort of Kommeno Bay provides a total escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This beachside getaway is unspoiled and hidden from the rest of Corfu by rows and rows of pine trees. There are private strips of sand, gourmet restaurants and cultured towns nearby. There is an exclusive selection of stylish hotels, and a popular retreat for Greece's elite who stay here in their grand holiday homes.

A number of gorgeous beaches

The hotels in Kommeno each have their own little strip of beach, but don't worry, non-guests can still come and go as they please. Every bit of the gorgeous seafront is stylish, clean and has its own character. Each hotel has its own rates for lounger and parasol hire, but if you'd rather sling your towel down on the sand then go for it.

Some of these beaches specialise in water sports. Top of their list are water-skiing, pedalo hire and para-sailing. Other strips focus on creating a peaceful ambiance with music and hammocks. Bars and restaurants serve tasty breakfasts, light lunches and hearty dinners throughout the day, with great cocktail lists to wash it all down.

Day trips around the island

Gouvia, a scenic resort which sprang out of the ruins of an old Venetian navy base, is just 10-minutes' drive away from Kommeno. This is a great place to dine out at tasty restaurants or join the Corfu Trail, which is a huge network of paths that spans almost the entirety of the island - giving you plenty of distance to cover during your holidays to Corfu. There are few better places to bring your special someone.

A further 10 minutes will get you to Aqualand, a magnificent water kingdom, and the perfect place to take the children. Kick back and relax by the wave pool while the kids throw themselves screaming down the Kamikazes and Double Twisters. If your little ones are particularly little then they'll have their very own miniature play park, complete with splash pool and funky slides.

The island capital just south of the bay

Corfu Town is the historic capital of the island, and has become one of the most vibrant and exciting places on the island. The old town is a cacophony of noise and colour, with market traders challenging tourists to a bartering battle on a regular basis. This is where you'll find souvenirs and gifts for those back home.

Above the market sits the Old Fortress of Corfu Town. This ancient Venetian monument once withstood three sieges from the Ottoman Empire and remains as a firm reminder of the island's rich heritage. The fort is open to the public, with the occasional speech, dinner or music event taking place within its old stone walls.

For those with expensive tastes, the commercial district of Corfu Town is full of boutique and high-class fashion stores for you to explore. It's all too easy to spend hours browsing jewellery and clothing in this area, but if you find something you love then you can show it off later at one of the city's trendy bars and clubs. The nightlife in Corfu Town is fantastic, with so many types of evenings to choose from.

Drink it in

Wine is a big affair in Corfu, with hundreds coming from the mainland and neighbouring islands to sample the spoils of the festival in Arillas, 40 minutes from Kommeno Bay. Every year in September the town celebrates its rich history of wine-making with a full on celebration in the streets. These festivities provide you with another great way to supplement your Greek island holiday packages.

The festivities begin with each guest purchasing a goblet for €3, with free refills all night. The streets are then filled with chatty crowds, barbecues and live music. The villagers and city folk mix together for the evening, discussing the ins and outs of the wines, and many don't leave until well into the early hours of the morning.
