Corfu Hotels for March

The Atlantis Hotel in Corfu Town is next to the historical centre of the island and opposite the new port, making it an ideal base for touring your surroundings. All rooms and apartments offer fridge, shower, TV, phone and wifi to guests. Be sure to request a room with a balcony that overlooks the sea and harbour. Facilities are rather modest, with a bar, TV room, restaurant, and indoor and outdoor cafes.

Corfu Beaches in March

In the north part of the island, you'll find a resort, Kassiopi, with plenty of small beaches dotted with small fishing villages. The area has always been popular with royals--Tiberius kept a villa here, and Nero played his lyre on its beaches a music visit with his lyre. The water itself is still a bit chilly for swimming, but it's a peaceful place to pick up seashells.

Bars and Restaurants

There's only one pub in Corfu Town that serves Guinness! The Thirsty Traveller pub is the place to be on St Patrick's Day if you want to celebrate in the traditional Irish way. It's also the place to go if you want to watch live sporting action on TV.

Part of the fun of holidays abroad is sampling the local cuisine, and where better to do so than the Taverna Stamatis. This place is actually around 5km from Corfu Town, in the village of Viros. It's a favourite with the locals as well as tourists.

Things to do in Corfu in March

In February, it's best to stay indoors, to here's your time to hit the museums. Oddly enough, the Asian Art Museum exhibits exquisite collections of artefacts from China, Japan, Tibet, Southeast Asia and Gandhara.

Drop by the Archaeological Museum, located in south Corfu Town. Built in 1965, it houses a collection of ancient artefacts from the island. Main exhibits include an impressive 17m gorgon pediment (590 b.c.e.) excavated from the Temple of Artemis at Paleopolis. The sculpture is so massive it dominates an entire room. Within the museum, you can also find a marble torso of Apollo, the lion of Menecrates, and a pediment of Dionysus.

From the New Fortress you can get a wonderful view of the old port and tiled roofs. Although built by the Venetians between 1572 and 1645, the British and the French completed the fortification works. Or wander down to the Old Fortress on the east, which houses a former Latin chapel, and a collection of Byzantine icons and mosaics. 

If you want to get out of Corfu Town for the day, why not take a visit to the Corfu Shell Museum in Benitses. The Museum displays the private collection of a Corfiot who used to dive in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
