Dear Explorers,

Hello! We are excited to have you here!

Join us on a journey where fun knows no bounds and every moment is an adventure!

Step into the enchanting world of our post, 'Things to Do in Corfu with Kids'!


This post is dedicated to Marian!

Marian, an 11-year-old, spent five delightful days in early May (2023) exploring Corfu with his dad. They had the unique experience of zipping around the island on a Vespa scooter.

When Marion's dad asked for suggestions on kid-friendly activities in Corfu, we found ourselves at a crossroads.


Our usual sightseeing recommendations cater to adults, and we had never hosted such a young Vespa enthusiast before.


Thanks to Marian, we went the extra mile, curating a list of all the kid-friendly experiences that would make his time in Corfu truly memorable! And now we are sharing this list with you!

Swim at the sea and play in the sand!

Your holiday time is a great chance to spend quality time with your young ones. Do spend much time at the beach but never leave the children unattentive.

Play with the sand, build sand castles, spend time jumping over the waves, and bury each other under the sand. The sand play has scientifically proven developmental benefits for children.

Visit a folklore museum.

We highly recommend visiting both the Casa Parlante Museum and one of the folklore museums in rural Corfu! This way, you can notice the significant differences between urban and rural lifestyles.


Casa Parlante is in Corfu's old town.

Sinarades Folklore Museum is in Sinarades village, near the island's west coast.

Acharavi Folklore Museum is in north Corfu.

Olive soap factory

Visit Patounis olive soap factory in Corfu town. Their location has preserved functioning tools and equipment since 1891, and it is a living memory of the unique local tradition. Because of this, the soap factory has become a popular attraction for tourists and students, as well as the subject of academic studies. The Greek Ministry of Culture has also listed it as a monument of industrial heritage.

Donkey rescue center

The donkey rescue centre is located near Doukades and Liapades' traditional villages. Be prepared to park on the main road and walk to reach the rescue center. If the weather is hot, visiting the donkey center early or later in the afternoon would be more advisable to avoid the heat.

Olive oil tour and tasting

In Corfu, numerous small olive oil fumily-run factories offer olive oil tours and olive oil tasting sessions. Some of them also have a small showroom- an exhibition where you can view the old olive oil-making process tools. To avoid unpleasant surprises, ensure the establishment you plan to visit is child-friendly before bringing your children along.


Some of them are:

Enotis olive groves & Museum(Free entrance & tasting)

The Governor (please consider that during the olive tour, they share a lot of information, lasts a long, and maybe it is not suitable for young children, but ideal for adults and teenagers)


Please tap on the establishment names for directions.

Danilia Park & Museum

Danilia Village is a beautiful replica of a 1930s Corfiot village.

The village has hosted several movies notably for the James Bond film “For Your Eyes Only” and most recently for the filming of the smash hit ITV series “The Durrells”.

Visit a horse farm.

Corfu has a few horse farms, and most also offer horse riding options.

If you're looking for a peaceful spot to relax and enjoy a refreshment in nature, consider visiting the small cafe in Silavland. This charming cafe, which is surrounded by a pine tree forest, is open to everyone and doesn't require you to go horse riding to enjoy its tranquil ambience.

Before visiting any of them, please ensure the children are welcome!

Sea water inflatable fun park

Visit an inflatable sea park and spend some time playing with your kids! Please consider that you can find this type of park in various locations in Corfu. Some are Dassia - Ipsos aqua arena (near Moby Dick restaurant) , Kavos, Glyfada, and Kondoyalos. An inflatable sea park needs the sea to be calm to operate. Stay away from visiting one on a windy day.

Marian (the young Vespa traveller to whom this post is dedicated) provided us with some of his favourite landscapes in Corfu. He loved the walk to Porto-Timoni Beach, and he also liked Logas Beach and Sidari. Marian also loved the experience he had at the Aqualand Waterpark!


Remember to wear sturdy shoes, sunscreen and a hat when enjoying the outdoors.

We hope you find inspiration in this post on what to do with your children in Corfu! Whatever you choose to do and share with your children, the most important thing is to show them love, and respect and remain present!
