2/5  Corfu

Anywhere on Corfu is great for under fives, but the north east has a slight edge. It’s the area for charming seaside towns with cove-like beaches, cute waterfront restaurants, gentle atmosphere, and spectacular Ionian sea views. You’ll find a good choice of smaller holiday villas and relaxed little hotels too, and everywhere is family-friendly: you might even recognise some bits from ITV’s, The Durrells.

Try pretty Kalami for fishing village authenticity, lush pine forests, and calmest seas. Or head a little further north to Kassiopi, another traditional town with breathtakingly beautiful beaches, which would be crowded anywhere else, but never are in this part of Corfu.

For under fives

  • Direct UK flights take three hours, between March and October.
  • Corfu Airport is an hour’s drive south of Kassiopi in north east Corfu.
  • Corfu has 57 beaches, many are sandy with shallow seas.
  • UNESCO World Heritage Corfu Town is one of the most colourful Greek island capitals, easy to walk around, and buggy-friendly.
  • Corfu is very family-friendly, young children are welcome in restaurants, and most villas and hotels are well equipped for toddlers and babies.
