Read more about Sidari

Natural beauty, family-friendly beaches and vibrant nightlife combine to make Sidari a hotspot for British sun seekers of all ages. Nestled in the northwest of Corfu, you’ll find this resort between the sparkling Mediterranean Sea and the island’s lush green olive groves. Perfect for a holiday with the kids, a romantic getaway or a mates escape, this Greek island gem is a rising star in the world of beach breaks.

Beaches
Sidari Beach has everything you want for a beach day (or seven). The calm, shallow water is great for families and you can take part in some exciting watersports here. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars nearby for drinks, snacks and seaside dining. If you prefer a quieter sandy spot, make your way to Sunset Beach in Peroulades. This is one of the best places to swim in Corfu, and tends to be less busy than the resort’s main beach.

Food & Drink
Delicious local produce and fresh seafood is on the menu in Sidari. Look out for cheese and olive oil lovingly made in Corfu – it’s good, even by the high standards already set by Greek cuisine. Head to Orchard Restaurant for an evening meal to remember. You can dine in the cosy taverna or outside in the pretty gardens. To eat like an islander, sample some stifado, a popular Corfu stew made with beef and baby onions, then toast to your holiday with a glass of fruity kumquat liqueur - a uniquely Greek tipple.

Culture
Although modern-day Sidari has grown into a bustling, popular tourist resort, Corfu’s coastline is steeped in history, and is dotted with coves and caves that have inspired stories and legends for thousands of years. Hercules and Odysseus are among the country’s mythical visitors, and Shakespeare is even said to have based Prospero’s island in The Tempest on Corfu. The sparkling sea vistas of the Corfiot coast have also made it to Hollywood – scenes from the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only were shot here in 1980.

Nightlife
Sidari’s friendly, relaxed days transition into welcoming, lively evenings – there’s plenty going on but it’s more laid back than a typical party resort like Kavos. You’ll find a great variety of entertainment here as the sun goes down, including tribute acts, karaoke and live music. Chic drinks can be had at The Vine, where prosecco, bellinis and cocktails are served by candlelight inside or outside on the sea view terrace. If dancing and DJs are more your style, check out the live acts and discos at Babylon Bar.
