A lively Corfu seaside resort

Ipsos holidays offer a classic seaside break in sun-kissed Corfu. Set around a stunning blue bay, the undisputed star of Ipsos is a golden sand and shingle beach, which stretches alongside azure waters for 1.5 kilometres. From the sunloungers that line the beach, holidaymakers enjoy knockout views of Mount Pantokrator – Corfu’s highest peak. At the far end of the beach, you’ll find plenty of lively bars and nightclubs, which give Ipsos a reputation as something of a party spot.

While there’s no denying that holidays to Ipsos will keep night owls happy, the area close to the old harbour is much calmer and is popular with families. There’s also plenty in Ipsos to keep kids entertained, including banana-boat rides, parasailing and visits to traditional villages close by. If you can drag yourself away from Ipsos’s sun, sea and restaurants, it’s worth taking a day trip into Corfu Town just a few kilometres away. A fun-filled coastal resort that will please all types of traveller, Ipsos has it all.
