Tucked away between two craggy peninsulas on Corfu’s northwest coast, you’ll discover the laid-back seaside escape of Arillas. This quiet village has a golden beach that stretches over almost 2km, and it’s also one of the finest spots in the region to experience water sports. You can refuel at one of the vibrant beach bars that run along the sand, or head to a waterfront taverna for a taste of real Greek cuisine. Ideal for families, the resort is close to the popular local water park and is a perfect spot for sailing trips.
Things to do
Holidays here are all about fun and relaxation. Start by soaking up Corfu’s Mediterranean climate with a day at the beach; it’s easy to find a spot along the 2km sweep. If you’re feeling energetic, why not give wakeboarding a go? Or book a diving excursion through the crystal-clear water. There’s plenty to do with little ones, too. Corfu Town (the island capital) is a popular place for sailing excursions out to sea, or you can jump on the bus to the Hydropolis Water Park to spend a day riding the slides. When the sun goes down, spend the balmy evenings dining at a family-run taverna on the waterfront, or sipping spicy ouzo in a local bar.
Arillas enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with long, warm summers and mild winters.
