Canal D’Amour

If you only have time to visit one beach during your stay in Sidari, you won’t want to miss the Canal d’Amour! However, this beautiful, natural location is more than just a beach. It is filled with picturesque rock formations and it is possible to go off the beaten path a little bit to explore the natural beauty. This is a great spot to take photographs, as well, and there are some bars and restaurants nearby that overlook the canal so that you can enjoy the scenery from afar. During peak tourist season, this attraction does get busy. If you know you want to visit this spot, consider visiting Corfu in some of the off-season months, such as May, September, and October.

Sidari Beach

Sidari Beach is the perfect spot for you if you’re craving a traditional beach. Easily accessed from Sidari, this is an easy beach to spend the day at. The water here is extremely shallow, too, which makes it an ideal choice for families. There are services nearby, as well, such as restaurants and bars, as well as some chairs to rent. Many of the chairs are free to use if you are a patron of one of the restaurants. There are also some opportunities to enjoy water sports here, such as water skiing, snorkeling, and banana boat rentals.

Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach, also referred to as Logas Beach, is another option for a beach when you’re staying in Sidari. Although the beach is actually located in the village of Peroulades, it can be easily accessed from Sidari. It’s well worth the trip, as well, because this is one of the best swimming spots in the area. Since it isn’t located directly in Sidari, this means that it won’t be as crowded as Sidari Beach or the Canal d’Amour.

Apotripiti Beach

Another great beach to spend the day at is also located in Peroulades. Apotripiti Beach is a gorgeous, peaceful beach that is about 300 meters long, which means that there is plenty of space to accommodate a large number of people. This is a perfect spot for those who are looking to find a beach that is a little more peaceful than some of the beaches that are closer to Sidari.
