Corfu island in Greece

Postby pitlisa » Mon Jul 09, 2007 3:34 pm

Hi;

I'll spend two weeks with my kids in Corfu island in Greece, during the 21.07 to the 2.08.07.
Does any one has some spot info. Will be in an hotel at the north.

Thanks a lot in advance

Mich

Hey Mich, i was there for a only one day last summer, as i was on a cruise ship. The island is soooo beatiful, i only went to the north, around the Monk's temple. The food is great, try some fried and breaded Feta cheese and sea food. When i was there there was no wind, but i hear they kite down south, there is a website somewhere, let me dig up my post from last year, there was some info there. If you PM me your email i will send you some pictures from the trip.
cheers
Andres

Just click on "Beaches" above and do a search on Corfu for some northerly info. I sailed by it and flew over it recently, but didn't see any action.

Thanks

Good morning from Corfu,
all the action here is happening to the south of the island in a place called Halikounas beach. That's a sandy beach about 4km wide with pleanty of space to set up your equipment and for your family to play around.
The wind is blowind mostly from WNW (side-side on shore) direction and most of the times is stronger than what the windguru is showing because of the thermal effects of that area.
If you don't bring your own equipment there is a school in the next beach (Issos beach) runned by a German guy and i think you can rent from there (i don't know the cost though).
Hope i helped.

If you come through a mail for further info, i'll be more than happy to help in any way i can.

Chris

Hi there

If anyone is looking here for info, I have found that there is indeed a school and hire place on Issos beach Corfu, run by a German outfit.
