12 UNIQUE LOCATIONS IN CORFU: Waterfalls of Nymfes

Corfu Island enchants with its luscious greens and cobalt Ionian blues. A humid microclimate ensures rich vegetation and bountiful evergreen trees.

Also called the ‘Emerald Isle’ of the Mediterranean unsuspecting visitors are amazed by the beauty of its gardens , the type of wild flowers that count into the thousands and the existence of inland waterways that swell up and come to life in the winter months.

This natural predominantly winter landscape, remains largely unmapped but readily available for the traveler who seeks more than first meets the eye.

The Waterfalls of Nymfes are the most impressive, reaching a ten meter height at times. This enchanting village in the north west of Corfu is well worth a visit, offering visitors a peak into a landscape that appears almost mythical.

The waterfalls are on the outskirts of the village, past the local football grounds and about half a kilometer up a rural dirt road.

Water flows well into the Spring but dries up during the summer months. The entire area is particularly beautiful and worth driving through as an alternative route to a beach in the north.
