The Canal D'Amour is located in the Siari neighbhood of Corfu, which is wonderful for eating out at restaurants, watching the sunset, and of course swimming by the beach. The canal is a small inlet of water that is blocked off by two large strips of land on both sides. I have copied links so that you can know exactly what it looks like. The area here is so peaceful when it is not crowded and offers such a serene vibe. I highly recommend that you spend the whole day here and watch the sunset overlook the canal at the end of the night.
I am thinking of moving my family to Corfu for when I retire. It's one of the possibilities, anyway. I thought it would be a good idea to visit next year, though, before I commit to anything. I really want to get a new overview of the island and its culture. Do you guys have any suggestions about what I should see and do?
I am going to Corfu soon - maybe in about three weeks (mid-September).
What is the weather like? I have never been there...
I know on islands like Crete it's still pretty warm in mid September with beach weather. That island is further south than Corfu. Does it make a huge difference? I will be going to Crete, too, so I am trying to figure out how to pack.
I am planning to visit Greece this year and will go to Athens, maybe Hydra, Santorini, and Mykonos. I will have about a month in the country and I have never been to Corfu. I wonder if I should also visit Corfu this time around? Also, I am not sure Hydra is happening ... I will have time - Santorini/Mykonos will take up about a week of my time in Greece. What do you guys think?
