Kefalonia is home to the endangered caretta-caretta sea turtles! These sea turtles are slowly dying out, so its very important to be respectful of nature while traveling in Greece. Don't throw litter by the sea, or anywhere on the island. There are many beach areas that are protected during the mating period so make sure you follow the signs on the beaches as well. They lay eggs in the sand and stepping on the sand/eggs can be detrimental to the species.

Palaia Peritheia is Corfus ghost town

This place used to be the richest village on the entire island on the entire island, but today there are only empty houses and churches left with no inhabitants. Super eery but great for a visit to see how people once lived. check it out!

Mouse island is only a five minute boat ride from Corfu!

Mouse Island (Pontikonisi) is only a five-minute boat ride away from Corfu is amazing!! It is said have the remains of Odysseus’s ship after Poseidon turned it to stone. The beaches are stunning and there is a great view of Kanoni across the water. There is also a Byzantine chapel of Pantokrator and may have served as the inspiration for the famous painting Isle of the Dead.

Best ice cream spot in Sidari, Corfu!!

The best is Kelly's Ice House for sure! Its an ice cream place, they also offer other foods, such as pancakes, to enjoy. You might want to eat your food sitting on one of the tables outside so you can fully enjoy the beautiful weather!
