About this book

This book to the Greek island of Corfu presents a selection of 22 superb day walks along with the 150 km long-distance Corfu Trail. The day walks range from 3.5 to 18 km in length and begin from a number of popular holiday destinations across the island, including Corfu Town, Kalami, Paleokastritsa, Agios Georgios north and south, Liapades and Benitses. The walks are suitable for all abilities and can be done year round. The Corfu Trail is described in 10 stages, starting near Kavos at the island's southernmost tip and finishing at Agios Spiridonas, its northerly promontory, taking in long sandy beaches, quiet mountain villages, lush valleys and the magnificent rocky coastlines. Each stage ends at a village or beach location where meals and accommodation are available.

Alongside detailed route descriptions and clear maps, Walking and Trekking Corfu has notes on Corfu's plants and wildlife, food and drink, and offers practical advice on travel to and around the island. It includes suggestions for where to stay, as well as a glossary of useful expressions.

Corfu is the greenest of the Ionian islands and one of the most accessible, so makes a great destination for a walking holiday. With highlights including beaches of golden sand on the west coast, the spectacular Angelokastro fortress, dramatic cliffs at Cape Drastis and the twin coves of Porto Timoni, these walks avoid the crowded resorts and allow the walker to experience the laidback atmosphere and varied natural landscapes of this beautiful island.
