Resort Guides - Acharavi




Acharavi, a resort on the north coast of Corfu, is a lively town popular with families and couples. Framed by the foothills of Mount Pandokrator, it benefits from a long sandy beach and its clear shallow waters are ideal for paddling and for less confident swimmers. A variety of water sports are available including water skiing, parasailing and fun rides on inflatables. Families will enjoy the Hydropolis Water Park with its exciting chutes and flumes. The resort is also popular with walkers as the Corfu Trail passes through the hills behind Acharavi and continues along the shoreline. The town has its share of archaeological remains. You can vist the Roman baths on the outskirts of the town and continue on to Roda where you'll find a doric temple that was dedicated to Apollo. No visit to the island would be complete without a visit to the capital with its sixteenth century fortress and impressive architecture that reflects a variety of influences throughout recent history. If you wish to make the most of your Corfu holiday, car hire is recommended.

The many restaurants cater for even the most conservative of British palates and those who wish can always find familiar food.
