What better place to throw a hen-do than in Corfu? Whether you want an action-packed week or a relaxing getaway with your friends, there is something for everyone on the island. Read on for our tips on how to throw an unforgettable hen-do while making the most of your money and your time on Corfu.
- When should we throw our hen-do?
To make the most of the affordable prices of the low season while still getting great weather, we’d recommend planning your trip for April or May, when the average daily highs are 19 to 24 degrees. However, be sure not to book your trip for Greek Easter weekend (which usually doesn’t coincide with Easter in other countries) as Corfu Town will be packed and prices sky-high.
2. Where should we stay?
Stay at Liston Suites in the heart of Corfu Town, located just a stone’s throw away from the Liston. You’ll find yourself in an ideal location for visiting the best restaurants and coffee shops and scoping out the nightlife in town. What’s more, each room is beautifully furnished and is effectively its own apartment; they’re each kitted out with a long list of amenities, including free Wifi, a plasma screen TV and a kitchenette. The historical building was renovated in 2017, giving it a crisp, modern feel, even though its original architecture was tastefully preserved.

3. What should we do?
If you’re looking for an active, fun-filled hen-do, then stay in Corfu Town, where you’re sure to find lively bars and clubs at which to dance. Alternatively, if you want to use this trip as your chance to wind down and destress, head to Fab Beauty to enjoy a relaxing manicure and/or pedicure. While you’re getting your treatment, be sure to take a look up at the ceiling, which is part of the old entrance to one of the Town’s fortresses.

Order your cake from Cake Boutique Corfu, a renowned bakery in Corfu Town which makes artistic, imaginative and unique cakes to order. If cake isn’t your thing, try their fresh, homemade macaroons.
