Corfu (Greek: Περιφερειακή ενότητα Κερκύρας) is one of the regional units of Greece. It is part of the region of Ionian Islands. The capital of the regional unit is the town of Corfu. The regional unit consists of the islands of Corfu, Paxoi, Othonoi, Ereikoussa, Mathraki and several smaller islands, all in the Ionian Sea.

Administration[edit]

The regional unit Corfu is subdivided into 4 municipalities.[1]

  • Municipality of Central Corfu and Diapontia Islands
  • Municipality of North Corfu
  • Municipality of South Corfu
  • Municipality of Paxoi

Prefecture[edit]

As a part of the 2019 Kallikratis government reform, the regional unit Corfu was created out of the former prefecture Corfu (Greek: Νομός Κερκύρας). The prefecture, created in 1864, had the same territory as the present regional unit.
