Taken on the quiet end of Kavos beach, Corfu. It *was* nice once you walked away from town but Kavos was not for us - Eastenders, Footy and Only Fools and Horses on telly everywhere and full British breakfast at bargain prices.
Going through the main town at 4:00am on the way from the airport, there were many groups of drunken Brits stumbling around and bass driven music loud enough the shake the coach. I also saw a girl on her knees performing oral sex five yards down a side street - classy! When we explored during the day, there weren't any local crafts or culinary delicacies, but there were several tattoo parlours, a sex shop and more tacky souvenirs than you could imagine.
I would think that the British tourists (who predominated) are a complete pain, but the entire town was set up and dedicated to serving lager louts and loutesses out to get lobstered and contract a STD. Our tour rep only had information on bar crawls and nightclubs and that was with a large and reputable company. It didn't make me proud of my country but it also saddened me how the island had debased itself attracting our money.
