Even in the past, this island had the potential to become a tourism hotspot. Corfu was one of the first Greek islands to suffer the blight of mass tourism that surged in the 1960s and 1970s and many parts quickly surrendered to the demands of cut-price holiday firms

Once beautiful bays were scarred by cheap hotels, happy hour bars and noisy discos. Yet some of the loveliest beaches and most romantic villages can still be found. The most popular tourist spots are along the narrow coastal strip north and south of Corfu town and the north coast, leaving many parts of the island relatively untouched by tourist development. Some of Corfu's villages, found in the island's lush and green interior, seem to have escaped the tourism boom altogether. The North East coast of Corfu has largely been developed by a few British holiday companies, with large expensive holiday villas. Package holiday resorts exist on the north and east coasts.
