Im so happy to hear this news! The island announced that it will be building a much needed new marina. The tourism minister said that "the number of arrivals to Corfu in July increased by 19.7 percent over the same month in 2019 despite the global challenges" which is great. The marina will help manage the increasing flow of tourism and any other imports. If you want to learn more, check out this article.
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.
Nissaki beach is amazing! It is a small secluded beach that has very clear blue water and white smooth sand with small pebbles. I really recommend it for anyone that is interested in a quieter beach. I do recommend going earlier in the morning to reserve a beach chair, as you can see there aren't many chairs so they fill up quickly. There is also parking right above the beach, but it will also fill up pretty quickly.
