For a low-key, peaceful, relaxing time, the Marbella Club destination of Agios Ioannis Peristeron is a one of the most chilled-out destinations on the island, as is Acharavi. If, on the other hand, you want to party hard, you've got neon-lit Kavos on the south coast, which is the 24-hour clubbing capital of the island.
For somewhere in between, Sidari is a good place to go. If you like history, Corfu Town is an excellent choice; with its quaint streets, old fortresses and pretty Venetian houses - and for natural history, visit Mount Pantokrator and Lake Korission.
