ndependent Travel Guide 2008
Corfu island is the seventh largest Greek Island and the second largest after Kephallonia of the Ionian Islands. Located in the north of the Ionian Sea, opposite the coastline of both Greece and Albania and separated by the Corfu Channel. Corfu itself has an area of 592 sq. km. and a coastline of 217 sq. km.
The terrain varies. In the north Mount Pantocrator rises to 906 m in the centre smaller hills rise to 576 m while the south a series of hills, not rising to more than 250 m stretch down the island ending at the headland of Asprokavos (south) and Lefkimis (southeast).In no particular arrangement, large valleys dot the landscape, characteristically like the one around lake Korission situated close to the southwest coast.
The island enjoys a Mediterranean climate with mild winters and refreshing summers. However humidity is high owing to warm southwesterly winds (especially in the winter when winds can reach 8 Beaufort) and northwesterly winds (like the "maistro" of summer reaching force 4 Beaufort) causing heavy rainfall from time to time apart from mid-summer months.
The relaxing but rich countryside, the glorious beaches and many other wonderful sights have made Corfu one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean and one of the most often visited places in Greece.
