The summer in Corfu is full of opportunities for our little friends to have memorable moments full of games, creativity, and fun!

Discover together with us the summer activities that will make their holidays in Corfu unforgettable.


Beach and Water Sports

Corfu’s beaches offer rich possibilities for water activities like inflatable games in the sea, snorkeling, SUP, canoeing, and learning water sports like skiing or wakeboarding for older kids.

Renting a boat with children can also be an excellent choice for a family activity during the summer vacation. Within safe parameters and with the appropriate preparation, the experience can be unforgettable for the kids.

Children get excited when they engage in alternative activities and love to stay busy. Alongside swimming and exploring the underwater world with a mask and snorkel, you could even try fishing.

Nowadays, fishing gear is lightweight, slim, and made from quality materials, making it suitable even for children. Moreover, there’s no need to use very large or ‘special’ baits. After all, the essence is to spend quality time with children, teaching them new things and creating experiences that will undoubtedly stay with them as unforgettable memories.

Horse Riding Lessons

Corfu’s beautiful nature provides many opportunities for horseback riding activities. Through interaction with animals, collaboration, and sensory experiences, children develop emotional and communication skills.

Crossing olive groves, pine and oak forests, eucalyptus, cypress trees, and countless flowers, you can enjoy a unique family experience. On the island, there are various options for riding schools and routes that lead from the mountains to the sea.
