Sidari is actually two small coastal villages connected by a long sweeping sandy beach and two smaller beaches. With the effects of tourism, the villages have merged together over the last few years to make one large resort.
The distance from Corfu town and the airport is about 40 km and the drive time you need to get there, its about 45 minutes. It used to be a small fishing place when in the early 80's it became a popular tourist destination. Every year since then is growing bigger and bigger. Today it is a large commercial resort which can offer accommodation up to 10.000 people!

These beaches are of unrivalled beauty! There are rock formations of a particularly striking nature which form a huge number of tiny coves and narrow channels.
One of them, of distinctive beauty is called: "Channel of love" or "Canal d' amour"! An area of eroding sandstone cliffs that have formed several tiny sand and shingle coves, reached by paths and even ladders. The tradition says that anyone who manages to swim right along it will soon meet the partner of his or her dreams. This point is recommended for diving.
