You're sure to get the perfect Greek island experience on your holidays in Sidari. This blissful beach resort, located in the northern part of pretty Corfu, is famous for its humble fishing village roots yet far from being a sleepy backwater, with its main strip abuzz with lively restaurants, cocktail bars and pubs. Stretch out for hours on Sidari’s Blue Flag sand and shingle beach and get active with a great line-up of watersports.
Sidari is also perfect for family holidays and kids can spend hours at the waterpark or take horse-riding lessons. The main beach, close to the centre, is also popular for its calm, shallow waters, perfect for kids to paddle in. Holidays to Sidari are all about evening entertainment and if you take a detour down the side streets you’ll stumble upon lively tavernas, late-night karaoke bars and bouzouki dancing. You can also shop for bargain handicrafts, silver jewellery and souvenirs along the main strip.
If you can pull yourself away from the beach, drive into the island’s capital for its historic old town, fortress and spectacular garden squares. Couples or those looking for love must head to Canal D'Amour, where a dip in the waters is believed to bless you and bring you romance. June is the perfect time to visit Sidari if you want a sunshine beach holiday, but they can also be enjoyed anytime of the year, with the sun shining gloriously in October as well. To get there, fly to Corfu airport and a half-hour drive will take you to Sidari resort.
