Places to visit in Sidari
One of the first places to see in Sidari when you arrive is the beaches. You’ll have three fabulous beaches to choose from and if you’ve got enough time to hit them all, go for it. But, if you only have enough space in your schedule to visit one beach, make it the main Blue Flag beach. You’ll have 500 metres of soft golden sands to explore and with its calm, shallow waters, swimming here with your kids is ideal.
If you want to do some shopping during your stay, you can embark on a day trip to Corfu Town. It’s just an hour’s drive away and there’s so much to see and do when you arrive. Check out the ancient buildings, discover enchanting fortresses and explore the old town for more historical treasure troves.
What’s great about Sidari is that it’s the perfect base to explore even more of Corfu during your stay. You can hop on a boat and sail to Canal d’Amour. Step onto a fabulous golden beach and enjoy the warm sunshine or go for a refreshing swim in the sea before hitting one of the local Greek tavernas for some grub and live music.
The Sidari Water Park is just a short walk from the beach and perfect for a family day out. Another must-visit spot is the Hydropolis Waterpark, which is around 20 minutes from the sleepy village of Sidari. Here, you can relax by the pool or let the current in the lazy river guide you around the park. If you’re bringing the kids, they’ll love the playground area that’s catered to younger children and includes smaller slides.

For even more excitement, book yourself and a friend a short double paragliding ride.

You’ll take a short speedboat ride to the launching pad, where you’ll meet your instructor and prepare for a view and experience you’ll never forget.
