Sidari is actually two small coastal villages connected by a long sweeping sandy beach and two smaller beaches. With the effects of tourism over time, the villages have now merged together over the last few years making one large cosmopolitan resort.
The distance from Corfu town and the airport is about 40 km and the drive time is around 45 minutes. Sidari was once known as a small fishing village due to its close proximity to the Sea when in the early 80's tourism began booming Sidari was christened as one of the most popular tourist destinations. Year after year Sidar grew until this present day where it has become a large commercial resort providing all kinds of accommodation for tourists worldwide.

These beaches are located off the beaten track and are full of unrivalled beauty! Close by are rock formations of a particularly striking nature which form a huge number of tiny coves and narrow channels, this area is known as the Canal d'Amour (The Channel of Love) and is located in the area of Peroulades just a little further north of Sidari. 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, when permitted, as the sea can become rough and choppy.
