Sitting on the north coast of Corfu, Greece, Sidari ticks all the boxes that a really great holiday destination should; think stunning beaches, a vibrant resort centre and a lively nightlife. However, its close proximity to traditional island villages means that it's surrounded by authentic Greek charm.
Ideal for all holidaymakers, you can mix and match your days in Sidari to build your perfect holiday. Beach bums can choose from the Blue Flag stretch in the centre, complete with watersports and sunloungers galore, and the completely charming Canal d'Amour, a postcard perfect beach that's ideal for die hard romantics and those with wandering tots to keep a close eye on.
No summer holiday is complete without a splash around in a waterpark, especially for those holidaying with younger waterbabies. Aqualand in Aghios Ioannis is one of the best in the whole of Greece, with the usual thrills and spills for all ages.
Peroulades and Avliotes
While Sidari is undoubtedly a top tourist spot on the island, it's surrounded by many traditional Greek villages that await exploration. Percoulades and Avliotes are two of the closest, and with their tiny tavernas and hidden beaches they offer a perfect taste of traditional Corfu.
To delve further into the island's history and culture, a daytrip to Corfu Town is essential. Wander the labyrinth of narrow, winding streets and you'll come across stunning architecture, tiny shops selling traditional wares and some fantastic places to eat to suit all budgets. Must-sees in Corfu Town include St Spiridon's Church, the Palace of St Michael and St George, and the impressive fort that dominates the landscape.
Cruise the Blue Lagoon
Corfu's coastline is so stunningly beautiful that exploring by boat is going to give you some of the best views and discoveries. Join a cruise to the Blue Lagoon, a breathtakingly blue pool sitting just behind white sands near the pretty fishing village of Sivota. Also nearby you'll find the caves of Mourtos, adding extra excitement to a perfect day spent seeking out the delights of the island's coast.
Corfu is perfectly positioned for a spot of island hopping, with Paxos and Antipaxos being two of the pretty little islands within easy reach. Hit Gaios in Paxos to take lunch on the town square, wander the harbour, or explore little sister Antipaxos, where you'll find a wealth of stunning beaches and very few inhabitants to share them with!
Hit Main Street
While it's not one of the best known clubbing destinations of the Greek islands, Sidari has more than enough going on after sunset to keep even the most determined party animals happy. Main Street is where most of the nightlife is centred, meaning that families in the resort can easily avoid the partying if they wish. Here you can bar hop and disco dance until the early hours.
Striking the perfect balance between a well-equipped tourist resort, and a place from which to enjoy the more traditional and natural side of Corfu, Sidari holidays are what you choose to make them. Fantastic beaches and a fun-loving town centre make it the perfect choice for families, groups and couples ' and if you fancy a change of pace you don't have far to go to find a sleepy village, a coastal hideaway, or a secluded island escape.
Aghios Ioannis goes one better and almost divides itself into two halves, with a fun side, and a traditional side. Aqualand takes care of the fun, whereas elsewhere in this resort you'll find an authentic village square where you can dine or sip coffee with island locals. A short bus ride takes you to the nearest Blue Flag beach, another favourite spot with the island's residents, making Aghios Ioannis one of the best destinations on Corfu for those who want to experience the 'real' island at one of its inland resorts.
