Acharavi and Roda – Corfu

 

Transfer time – 1 hour 40 minutes

Best For – Families and couples looking for a resort with plenty amenities.

Acharavi and Roda are two beautiful, traditional Greek villages set on the north coast of Corfu, particularly popular with families and couples who are looking for resorts with a beautiful beach, crystal clear sea and enough activities to entertain both evenings and daytime. The old village of Roda is host to some beautiful villas and hotels of high standard and the newer part and Acharavi have some fabulous places to stay too.

The beach is the main reason people return to Roda and Acharavi year after year, with soft golden sand, gently shelving into crystal blue water, with a great selection of water sports for the more energetic and an excellent selection of beach bars and tavernas to escape the midday sun. Don’t be shocked if you see horse riders enjoying a trek down to the beach too, its a very popular past time for many British tourists, although they wont come near where the sunbeds are located, its a lovely sight to see them trotting along the surf.

Night-life in Acharavi is slightly livelier than in Roda, although either area is suited to couples and families. There is even a couple of clubs for those wanting to dance through to the early hours. There is a massive selection of places to eat, from fast food venues up to top class restaurants. Most popular is the traditional local tavernas, where you can enjoy fantastic food and traditional Greek dancing and even occasional plate smashing, great fun for all, I’m sure you will agree. The beauty of these two resorts is that you can vary your evenings by frequenting either resort, 2 minutes in a taxi or a 20 minute stroll and you can be in either village.

In close proximity to the island’s capital of Corfu Town, reached by local transport of by boat trip, you can enjoy the local architecture and history, the Byzantine Churches are fabulous, there is a great selection of shops and boutiques and of course the usual souvenir shops. The location of these resorts gives you easy access to other fun activities such as water parks, golf and many other resorts for a change of scenery, should you wish to leave this little piece of heaven.

So for a beautiful destination where you can be as busy or relaxed as you wish, Acharavi and Roda have something for everyone, holiday heaven.
