Corfu’s nature is probably its biggest attraction! The heavy rains of the winter and the relatively mild summer in combination with the fertile soil of the island contribute to the island being green from one end to the other all year round. Someone said that the seasons on Corfu are two springs, separated by the summer and a short but rainy winter.
The variety of flowers, plants, trees, insects, bugs, animals and birds is astounding. But also underwater, the sea around Corfu is bustling with life. All in all, the biodiversity of Corfu is astonishing! This biodiversity and nature has enchanted many writers, poets and painters who have dedicated their works to Corfu. Probably the most enthousiastic (and certainly the funniest!) advocate of the Corfiot nature was Gerald Durrell, who lived on Corfu as a child and wrote several books about it (My family and other animals, Birds, beasts and relatives etc).
