Located at the northeast of Corfu , Aghios Stefanos provides holidaymakers with the best of both worlds. Sure, it ticks all the boxes if you're looking for a typical beach destination, but it's also awash with tradition and rustic charm that can often go amiss in more built-up resorts. The small fishing village provides the ultimate in relaxation, while also being within close proximity to some of the highlights of the island. As far as Greece is concerned, Aghios Stefanos is one of the hidden gems that need to be seen to be believed
Mix up your days and choose between lazing on the beach and exploring the local area. It may be a no-brainer and you may opt to relax on the shores every time, but if you want to expand on your Corfu experience then there's plenty to see and appreciate away from the sands as well.
Delve a little deeper into the island's history and enjoy a day trip to its capital city. While the architecture that hides amongst the labyrinthine streets is enough to captivate you for the duration of the trip, make some time to see some of the popular sights and attractions too, including the impressive fort that dominates the landscape, as well as St Spyridon's Church and the Palace of St Michael and St George.
Head to Aghios Ioannis for a chance to have some splashing good fun at one of the best waterparks that Greece has to offer. Perfect for people travelling with children, a day at Aqualand will help to keep a smile on little faces, with plenty of thrills and spills for all ages - including the young at heart!
Peroulades and Avliotes
While Aghios Stefanos is perfect as a base, exploring the surrounding area is a must if you want to sample some authentic Greek life. Head to the villages of Peroulades and Avliotes, near Sidari, for a chance to do just that. Make sure you give yourself enough time to sample one of the tavernas within the villages, for some beautifully prepared, unpretentious and affordable cuisine.
Perfectly situated for a bit of island hopping, why stay glued to Corfu when there are so many more islands to explore too? Sure, Corfu has an incredible amount of sights to see, but with the picturesque and beautiful Paxos and Antipaxos both being within easy access, it'd be a shame to miss them.
Cruise the Blue Lagoon
The coastline is a melting pot of natural beauty - certainly one that should be appreciated via boat trip. The landscapes are stunning as it is, but just imagine the views away from shore! Cruise to the Blue Lagoon, near the picturesque village of Sivota, where you'll find a popular spot due to its breathtaking beauty. Alternatively, stop by the caves of Mourtos to experience another facet of natural wonder that this stunning island offers.
Enjoy the Local Nightlife
While Aghios Stefanos is fairly low-key, nearby Sidari has a wealth of evening revelries to keep you going. It doesn't reach the dizzy heights of some clubbing destinations, but it has plenty of bars and discos to keep night owls satisfied.
Brimming with charm, rusticity and tradition, while also providing everything that a holidaymaker could possibly need, Aghios Stefanos has something for everyone. Perfectly placed to explore the delightful north coast of Corfu, it's a dream resort for adventurers and those seeking lazy days alike.
Enjoy the more traditional side of Corfu with a stay in Sidari, an idyllic resort where holidays are exactly what you make them. Superb beaches and a vibrant town centre merge to create the perfect recipe for all-round-amazing holidays for couples, groups and families to enjoy on this stunning Greek island.
