Corfu(Korfu) is one of the most beautiful Greek islands and is called Kerkyra(Kerkira,Korkyra) as well.
According to greek mythology, the island got its namefrom the daughter of the river god Asopos, nymfi Korkyra, who was carried away by Poseidon.In Homer's Odyssey we read that Odysseus found shelter in Corfu at the end of his wanderings and received the care of king Alkinoos and his people Pheaces and his daughter Nafsika.
Corfu, the island of endless natural beauty, the island of song and music, of unending inpiration, a combination of the cosmopolitan and the traditional.The island excites the visitors with unparalleded images.
Fantastic beaches as Agios Georgios,Myrtiotissa and Glyfada r going to make u crazy because of the nature.
