With Covid and everything, I have no handle on what is open and what isn't.
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.
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.
Corfu has a wonderful aquarium that should definitely be on your itinerary when visiting the island. One of the best parts of the aquarium is that you're able to take an underwater cruise through a submarine that has glass where you can look through and see all of Greece's beautiful marine wildlife. It's a great trip for a young couple or anyone with kids looking to explore and learn about Greece's marine life. Here is a link for anyone interested.
Greeks seem to have an obsession with smashing pots! Opa! In Corfu, there is an old tradition that is near and dear to my hear called Botides. This is when people smash pots filled with water from their windows and balconies on Holy Saturday. In the Greek Orthodox religion, Holy Saturday is when the first resurrection, when Christ brought salvation to the dead. The tradition of Botides is most popular in Corfu, but can also be seen in other parts of Greece.
Nothing is better than trying out authentic Greek food in Corfu. The best thing you can do, is make friends with locals and try out some local dishes like sofrito, pastitsada, and savoro. Like many different foods in Greece, Corfu has some of the best and freshest seafood so I highly recommend trying out any seafood dishes!! Let me know if you like this video
