Sidari’s Canal D’Amour

Sidari is one of the most popular resorts in Corfu and if you’re not already staying in the area, it’s well worth visiting for a day. The star attraction in Sidari is the famous Canal D’Amour, which as the name would suggest, is a natural canal created by a series of impressive rock formations. Many years ago, the rocks actually formed the shape of an arch, but this has long since crumbled. Legend also has it that any woman who swims the full length of the canal will win the man of her dreams. So who’s up for taking a dip?

If you don’t fancy swimming in the canal itself, there are a number of beautiful coves nearby, with soft golden sand and clear blue sea, perfect for swimming in or enjoying a peaceful sunbathe. There are in fact three award winning beaches in Sidari, so you won’t fail to be impressed with the classic Mediterranean beach scenes that you’ll find here.

The exceptionally clear waters make Sidari perfect for snorkelling, diving and other water sports. So if you fancy giving any a try, this is the place to do it. Then, after a fun filled day at the beach, you can reward yourselves with a drink and some food at one of the many cafés and restaurants located along the bustling promenade.
