Having fun on the water in Corfu
WATERSPORTS ON CORFU
Corfu's transparent, calm and warm summer waters lend themselves to water sports of all kinds and the island is blessed with lots of options to choose from. Here are our favourites on the northwest coast within easy reach of our villas on Corfu.
Sailing, windsurfing and power boat courses
