If your idea of a top vaycay is bar-hopping and beach-lounging, holidays to Kavos will more than fit the bill.

Wild child

Greece's answer to spirited Sin City, Kavos lives large with all-night parties and a fun-loving vibe. Located at the far-southern tip of Corfu – a bit over an hour's drive from the island's capital city – it draws an eclectic international crowd and a world-class line-up of DJs.

Long beaches for long nights

Whether you're resting up ahead of a big night out or just worn out from yesterday's antics, you'll love lounging on the eight-kilometre beach. Throw a towel down, nip to the nearby shop, grab yourself an ice-cream and dip your toes in the turquoise Mediterranean sea.

Sunset to sunrise

Kavos is surprisingly laidback during the day. After sunset, though, the town lets loose as the music dials up and club doors fly open. There's plenty of live music, an energising atmosphere on the streets and loads of well-known DJs taking turns behind the decks.

Easygoing daytrip

If you want to take time out to explore the island, you can drive to the capital, Corfu Town, in just over an hour. Here, you'll find countless quiet cafés, upmarket shops and a picture-perfect mix of multicultural architecture. There's a generous helping of museums and art galleries too, and even two historic fortresses.
