Lake Korission, sometimes called Lake Korisia is in the south west of Corfu
island not far from Gardiki and about a 45 minute car ride from the capital Kerkyra
The Lake is over 5km long from one end to the other and roughly 1.5km across as its widest point making it around 24 square kilometres in area, naturally this means that Lake Korission is home to a vast amount of both native and migrating birds including, seagulls, Owls, buzzards, swallows and if you’re lucky, flamingos.
Lake Korission is the perfect place for a long walk but remember to bring supplies with you as there are no facilities other than those on the beach and if you’re walking in the summer you will definitely need some refreshments.
Getting to the lake can be tricky as there is no tarmac road but there is a decent dirt track that’s not too difficult in the average hire car. If you want to stay close to Lake Korission then your best choice is Agios Georgios south
Right next to the lake is the fabulous Halikounas beach
so it’s great to combine the two together and spend the rest of the day relaxing on the beach or trying out some kite surfing.
