Take a walk along Sidari’s sunny coastline and you’ll see why the beaches are the star of the show here. Whether you want to get a tan or get some water sports action, this is where you’ll want to be. Don’t forget about the cliffs of the Canal d’Amour; from here you’ll have uninterrupted views over the Adriatic Sea. Little (and not so little) ones will love the splash about at the Hydropolis Water Park down the road, where you can ride the slides and grab a bite to eat. 

You get three beaches for the price of one on a holiday to Sidari. The main Blue Flag beach is 500 metres long, and it’s right in the centre of town. The sands are broad and smooth, with rows of sunloungers and umbrellas for eager sunbathers. It’s a sheltered spot with calm, shallow waters, making it an ideal for kids. You’ll also find an excellent water sports line-up here; how about banana boating or diving? The other two beaches are smaller; and one of them, Megali, is the place to go to find rock pools.

Sidari holidays are great for kids. They’ll be spoiled for choice, with water sports, go-karting and horse riding up for grabs. If you want to cool off on a hot day, a trip to Hydropolis Water Park is well worth it (especially as it’s only 20-minute drive away). Here you’ll find swimming pools, water slides and lazy rivers galore, plus a special playground for younger kids. After a day of adventure, you’ll be ready for a bite to eat, so why not head for a family-friendly taverna back at the resort? 

Holidays to Sidari aren’t complete without a trip through the beautiful Canal d’Amour, a natural tunnel worn into the white rocks by the sea. It’s a lovely area for swimming, too, with some of the clearest water in Corfu, although watch out for the strong currents around the tunnel entrance. When the sun goes down, let your hair down over on the main party strip, packed with cocktail and karaoke bars, plus plenty of live music and shows. It’s quieter than the likes of Kavos, but it still promises a good night out. Keep an eye out for Greek dancing for a taste of island culture. 

Sidari is best for...

Families: With clean beaches and loads of fun stuff (like a water park and horse riding) Sidari holidays are perfect for families. Greek people love kids too, and tend to spoil them rotten! So you can expect a warm welcome for the little ones wherever you go, including in restaurants and cafés.

Beach lovers: You have three fabulous beaches to choose from, including the main sandy beach near the town. It’s the biggest of the lot, with water sports and beach cafés on offer, as well as safe, clean water that’s great for timid toe-dippers or paddlers.

Couples: With laid-back tavernas and the breathtaking Canal d’Amour on your doorstep, this island retreat is ideal for a romantic couples’ getaway.

Weather and climate

Temperature: 26°C on average in July

Best time to visit: Enjoy prime beach weather in June before it really heats up.

Summer in Corfu is slightly milder than mainland Greece, but the breezy evenings will cool you down. From May through to October, temperatures stick in the mid-20s (°C), and then dip down during the winter, when it’s much cooler and quite wet. However, spring sees the mercury shoot back up again and if you like it hot, book your holiday for July or August; they’re the warmest months, with averages highs of 31°C.

Getting around

By bus: You can easily reach resorts along the coast like Corfu Town and Kassiopi, by bus. It’s a cheap and efficient way to get around, with an hourly service.

By taxi: Taxis can be a good option for airport transfers, or if you need to get home after a late night at a club. You can pick one up at the airport or book in advance (it can be cheaper to do it this way). You’ll also see them running around the resort, so just flag one down if you need one. However, check the fare before you get in, and make sure your taxi is a licenced operator.

By car: If you want the freedom to explore the island at leisure, hiring a car is your best bet. With Sidari as your base, you’ll have unlimited day trip possibilities. How about the ancient villages of Peroulades and Avilotes?  


Carnival: In February and March, Carnival comes to Corfu. The main celebrations take place over in Corfu Town (24km away), complete with parades, live music, Greek wine and a party atmosphere. Wherever you are on the island, you’ll spot locals dressing up and getting into the Carnival spirit.

Wine festival: Half an hour’s drive from the resort is the seaside town of Kassiopi, home of an annual wine festival. Locals and travellers flock here from all over the island to sample the fruits of Corfu. As well as plenty of regional wine, you can expect Greek dancing, live music and delicious food. It’s a great way to find out more about the real Corfu culture on your Sidari holidays.
