The mountainous relief of the northern region of the yields a dramatic and breathtaking scenery, the highest peak being referred to as Mount Pantokrator (906 meters high). Beaches in this region are not as popular as their southern counterparts, being rather pebbly as compared to the sandier quality of southern stretches. The Antinioti Lagoon is a spot worth visiting, though it is not as developed, from a tourist point of view, as expected, which is, on the other hand, an upside for a thriving wild flora and fauna. The south of Corfu is much more popular with tourists given its vast and appealing stretches of sand easily accessible from the numerous resorts located in this region. Lake Korission is to be found in this southern region of the island. The passage from the northern region to the south is made by a transitional central hilly relief.
It is in this central area that Corfu Town, the capital of the island, is located, more precisely on the central eastern side of the island. Corfu Town exceeds in tourist performances all the other resorts of the island, taking pride both in its invaluable natural features and in the historic heritage it possesses. The main landmarks of the northern part of the city refer to the so-called New Fortress and Old Fortress, which delineate the Old City, whereas the New City lies on the southern side of Corfu Town. The Halikiopoulos Lagoon, located southwards as compared to Corfu Town, is, unlike its northern counterpart, much more up-to-date in terms of tourist infrastructure, hosting the runway of the island’s airport.
