According to the tradition from which it got its name, anyone who manages to swim through the canal will soon find the love of their life.

Sidari has a vibrant nightlife scene. The visitor can choose between many bars, clubs and even an Irish bar that brings the atmosphere of Temple Bar in Dublin, Ireland to Corfu.

Here, the sea meets sandy shores and creates impressive bays. It's also the place where the remains of the first proven settlement of the island was discovered, dating back to the Neolithic Age.

The area is dominated by three sandy beaches that give the water around the coast a yellowish color. Most of them are well-organized with shallow waters, while the beach bars offer sunbeds, promising visitors of every age an unforgettable experience.
