Here is a video of the Top Places to visit on Corfu Island in Greece. Corfu is the 2nd largest island of the Ionian Greek Islands.

Its Greek name, Kerkyra, is related to two powerful water symbols: Poseidon, god of the sea, and Asopos, an important Greek mainland river.

According to myth, Poseidon fell in love with the beautiful nymph Korkyra, daughter of Asopus and river nymph Metope, and abducted her.

Poseidon brought Korkyra to the hitherto unnamed island and, in marital bliss, offered her name to the place: Korkyra, which gradually evolved to Kerkyra.

There's also a myth that Alexander The Great lost his virginity on Marathias Beach on Corfu Island.
