Holidays to Ermones mean calm beach days and secluded seaside strolls, all with buzzing Corfu Town just a 20-minute drive away.

Off the beaten path

Travellers love Ermones on the west coast of Corfu for its quiet beaches and ultra-authentic Greek island feel. Despite being a far cry from the hustle or bustle, you'll be surprised at how close it is to the island's capital – so you can take daytrips whenever you fancy.

Capital city cruising

It's a quick drive to Corfu Town, a fascinating hodge-podge of old and new. In the elegant Liston, nab a spot at a trendy café and slurp down a sugary frappe. Have a potter around Campiello's cobbled streets, where residents' laundry flaps from the windows of squares.

Life's a beach

Ermones is prime territory for watersports – from parasailing to cave diving. Surrounded by dramatic landscapes, the sand-and-shingle shore rubs shoulders with green hills and olive groves. After a hard day of sunbathing and swimming, treat yourself to fresh calamari at a nearby taverna.
