Sidari is a popular destination that beautifies Corfu’s north coast and renders it livelier to visit. Once a small fishing village, this sea side town has co-opted all the glitter of tourism in Greece today. This picturesque and stunning Greek village has been on the top list for people visiting Greece especially after the 1980s when it donned a completely new look. Sidari’s landscape looks wonderful with its soft rock erosion and several little bays that offer small swimming spaces for large crowds. These days you’ll find a huge array of bars and restaurants on its busy main strip, but you’ve also got pretty, secluded coves and lovely coastal walks, too.
Amongst its attractions are the famous Canal d'Amour (the Channel of Love), that looks resplendent with the unique geological formations. And then there is a picturesque beach that has given a whiff to Sidari’s tourism. From the small port of Sidari, tour boats depart for the isolated islands of Othoni, Mathraki and Erikoussa, known for their stunning coves and turquoise waters. In Sidari one can also see the remains of the Venetian castle and the beautiful village of Agrafi.
With its mesmerizing Greek charm, this coastal town also entices people with its Entertainment venues that range from karaoke and big screens showing football to drag acts, quizzes and bingo as well as to the obligatory restaurants, bars and clubs. Groups of friends will love the Sidari nightlife with a variety of bars and clubs in the resort, while families will be kept happy with a whole host of restaurants offering both food and entertainment.
