I'm considering a trip to Corfu and am curious about the snorkeling opportunities there. Is Corfu a good place for snorkeling? Are there specific beaches or spots that are particularly great for underwater exploration? Any recommendations for guided snorkeling tours or places to rent equipment?

I’m looking for clear waters, abundant marine life, and beautiful underwater scenery. Additionally, any tips on the best times of year for snorkeling in Corfu would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Corfu is a fantastic place for snorkeling with its crystal-clear waters and diverse marine life. Here are a few tips:
  1. Best Spots: Head to Paleokastritsa for its stunning underwater caves and vibrant marine life. Agni Bay and Nissaki Beach are also great options with calm, clear waters.
  2. Equipment: Bring your own snorkeling gear if possible, as rentals may not always be reliable. Make sure your mask fits well and doesn't leak.
  3. Safety: Always snorkel with a buddy and stay aware of your surroundings. Be cautious of boat traffic, especially in popular areas.
  4. Marine Life: Look out for colorful fish, octopuses, and even the occasional sea turtle. Respect the marine environment by not touching or disturbing the wildlife.
  5. Timing: Early mornings are usually the best time to snorkel, as the water is calmer and there are fewer people around.
