Corfu, Greece - east coast or west coast?

Dear Travelers :)

If anyone could answer me on few questions..
Which coast of Corfu, Greece is better to visit?
I've never been there, but I'm trying to find a place with a sand bay (or at least pebble beach), sun shining and after 5-6 PM (I've red that in Nissaki for ex. sun is off after 4-5 PM...), and a possibility for snorkeling (some rocky places under the sea nearby).
Anyone knows such a place or closes to it? :D

Thanks in advanced,
Adriana from Serbia

Looking for Specific Jeweler in Corfu  (2 Answers)

We were just there, should have grabbed a business card. There is a local jeweler that creates unique and funky gold jewelry with precious and semi-precious stones. He owns a small little gallery with 3 other artists and the store has a very distinct orange interior on the North side of the street. There were 3 or 4 glass display boxes with rings and earrings and the rest were on the walls. It was very small store and the sidewalk in front was skinny. We walked west from V Dousmani but we were swisted in the streets. The gentleman speeks English and has a small daughter that was there that day, about 10-11 years old. My mother in law is kicking herself for not buying the ring she saw and I would like to surprise her for Christmas. Thanks for any hints you can provide.

one day visit to Corfu on Royal Caribbean ship in may  (3 Answers)

Hi all, any ideas! We are arriving in may for a one day visit to Corfu. I see on the website for the cruise ship, that tours are offered for the Achilleion Palace. We are into walking/taxi/running/bus, whatever it takes. We avoid the trappings of the cruise shis tours. Any simple itineraries anyone can offer that are cheap! And include some interesting not touristy sights. Thanks to anyone who responds! Cheryl in Reno, NV USA

Where to stay in Corfu  (6 Answers)

We are looking to book a two week holiday in late August/early September to Corfu. We are unsure of a good area to look at staying. We don't want to stay in the really built up, pakage holiday areas where the beaches are crowded and it feels like Ibiza at night. We are just looking for an area with beautiful beaches, great cafes and restaurants and a few bars, and a good location for visiting the rest of the Island during the days, we'd like to visit corfu town. Any suggestions would be great...thanks

Agios Georgios South  (2 Answers)

Hello everybody

I've been to Corfu this summer and I like it so much that I'll go again last week in September with a friend. Considering we can't find any tourist agency who is taking care of transportation and accomodation that late in September, we'll have to go alone. We have booked bus ticket to Thessaloniki but we're not sure how to go to Corfu after that. Can somebody please let me know what's the best way to get to Corfu from Thessaloniki and how long the trip by bus can last? Does somebody have any idea how much could taxi cost from Corfu town to Agios Georgios (Argirades)? What's the weather like end of September / beggining October?

Thank you all in advance!

Day excursion to Sarande, Albania

Reading through the various articles I noticed that many are some years old and I think with the rapid changes they may be outdated. Has anybody recently (let's say in the last 12 months) done this excursion ? If so who can tell about additional costs (like visa ? or entrance fee like in Turkey? port taxes or what ever ?). I will spend some time in Corfu end of May/beginning June.
