Holidays to Roda

Sandwiched between the coast and the rolling hills of northern Corfu, you’ll discover the charming village of Roda. This great spot is one of the island’s most up-and-coming holiday destinations. Whether you want a fun-filled beach getaway or a romp through the hills, this Greek island retreat has plenty to offer everyone. When the sun goes down, laid-back family-run tavernas on the waterfront are the perfect place to unwind with a drink in hand. As well as authentic Greek cuisine, you’ll also enjoy a plate of traditional Greek entertainment in this part of town. Holidays here offer the best way to relax, unwind, and experience the mellower side of Corfu.

Sandy shores and warm waters await in this island resort. But Roda holidays will take you far beyond the beach. There’s so much spectacular countryside to see; you can head up to the hills to see incredible views across the sparking Mediterranean (by foot or on horseback, it’s up to you). You’ll discover family-friendly adventures over at the local waterpark, which is one of the best on the island. When you get back, dinner and drinks on the waterfront are in order, while the sun sets. 

The Blue Flag beach runs for 7km along the tree-lined coast. A mix of golden sand and pebbles, it’s dotted with comfy sunloungers and bright umbrellas so you can sunbathe in total comfort. Families love it here; the waters are shallow and clear, making them perfect for paddling and swimming, even if you’re a bit of a timid toe-dipper. You’ll find loads of buzzy beach cafés and bars just behind the beach, where you can refuel throughout the day. When you’re up for a change of pace, it’s time to take on watersports; how about an invigorating afternoon of water-skiing or banana boating?  

Roda occupies one of the prettiest spots on Corfu; its golden coast is backed by miles and miles of stunning hilly scenery, dotted with fragrant olive trees. It’s just made for exploring, and you can trek through the hills on foot or by bike. Another option is to take a two-hour horse ride through the lush countryside. A more demanding trail will take you to Episkepi in the foothills of Mount Pantokrator, but you’ll be well rewarded with breathtaking views.

After a day of activity, there’s no shortage of places to unwind on your Roda holiday. The long coast road that runs along the beach is home of some of the town’s finest tavernas. Why not enjoy a glass of wine as you watch the sun set over the sea? The beachfront grills are a great place for a bite to eat. It can get pretty lively in this part of town, with plate-smashing Greek nights to karaoke. 

The little (and not so little) ones will enjoy sailing in the sun, so why not take a boat trip to Corfu Town? Your journey will take you through the beautiful Canal d’Amour and some will even let you drop anchor and head to a secluded beach for a barbeque. A firm family favourite on all Roda holidays is the nearby Aqualand water park. Less than an hour’s drive away, it’s one of the best on the island, with dozens of water slides to zip down, swimming pools to splash around in and a lazy river for relaxing. Pick up an ice cream or a pizza from one of the snack bars and restaurants. 

Roda is best for...

Beach lovers: 7km of soft, golden sand that’s ideal for relaxing; in fact, this is one of the prettiest beaches on the island, and one of the best for sandcastle building, chilling out, and generally relaxing.

Couples: Walks in hills, seaside restaurants, and beautiful scenery; where better for a romantic break for two?

Adventurers: Lush fields and rolling hills are made for adventure; you can explore on foot, by bike, or on horseback. Or take to the sea for some water sports action.

Weather and climate

Temperature: Mid to high 20s (°C)

Best time to visit: If you want warm (but not boiling hot) beach weather, book your Roda holidays for early summer.

The weather here is typical of Corfu’s Mediterranean climate; you can expect long, warm summers, with welcome sea breezes that make the summer more comfortable than in mainland Greece. The mercury lingers in the mid to late-20s between June and September, creeping up higher in July and August. Autumn tends to be cooler, and winters on Corfu can be wet and a little cold. Things warm back up again in March and into April, making it perfect for an early spring break.


Getting around

By bike: Compact and flat, you’ll love exploring the town on two wheels. There are lots of companies offering cycle hire at good prices.

By bus: A bus service runs along Corfu’s northern coast, linking the village with nearby resorts like Sidari and Kassiopi. They’re a cheap and reliable option for daytrips.

By taxi: You won’t have any trouble getting a taxi; just find a taxi rank or book in advance. They’re a convenient choice for airport transfers and you’ll always be able to find one at Corfu Airport.

By moped: Corfu’s scooter and moped hire centres are in every town and village, so if you fancy buzzing around the island with the wind in your hair, you can. Make sure your scooter hire includes a crash helmet, though. 


Events

Carnival: Carnival is celebrated in towns and cities across Corfu, usually taking place over a week in February or March. You’ll find the main events in Corfu Town, the island capital, featuring colourful parades and bright costumes amid a party atmosphere. Plus, there’s lots of local food and wine to sink your teeth into.

Wine festival: About 20 minutes away by bus is Kassiopi, a town known for its annual wine festival (September). Held on the picturesque harbour, you won’t need any excuse to sample the local wine, or tuck into tasty grilled souvlaki!
