  • WKF karate1 - Youth Cup Corfu, Greece 2012CorfuCorfu was not given the name of the Emerald Island for no reason. The greenest ofall the Greek islands, Corfus natural beauty is hidden under a cloak of emeraldgreen, with a mountainous skyline plunging into the bluest of blue waters. Elegant architecture, sun blessed beaches, enchanting nightlife and fine cuisine all play their part in attracting visitors from all over the world. With a welcome as warm as the sun, the renowned reputation the Greeks possess for their unique and instinctive hospitality makes any visitor feel more than at home. The island has something to offer everyone. Corfu Town itself is a contrasting combination of old and new existing side by side in perfect harmony.There is an abundance of sand, shingle and pebble beaches lining the 200 kmcoastline, leading to clear waters ideal for swimming and water sports. Take a little time to explore the island and you will be rewarded with some of the most spectacular scenery on offer by any destination. A trip into the heart of the island will give you an insight into Corfiot village life. Time, in some places, seems to have stood still and everyday life carries on pretty much as it must have done for hundreds of years. Even though the island isconstantly developing to cater to the demands of todays tourist, Corfu has stillmanaged to retain its beauty and charm throughout time. The majority of the islandremains untouched and as captivating as it has been for centuries.Whether you are looking for the hustle and bustle of nightlife or peace andtranquillity, everything you could need is here, just waiting to be discovered.More information on Corfu island: www.corfu.gr 3
