Holidays to Acharavi take you to a historic town in northern Corfu. Here you’ve got bars, tavernas and a lively atmosphere – plus a 3-kilometre golden-sand beach.
A beach hotspot
Set on Corfu’s northern coast, Acharavi sprang into action in the Seventies when tourism first hit the island. As such, Cruise & Stay holidays here revolve around the souvenir shops, traditional tavernas and the standout three-kilometre-long strip of sand.
All eyes fall on the Blue Flag beach in Acharavi – and it’s easy to see why. A mixture of sand and pebbles gently shelve into the soft waves, making it perfect for paddling. Restaurants and shops spill out onto the sands, too. If you fancy a change, the town’s got a couple of public swimming pools. They’re free to use – you’ll just need to buy a few bits from the neighbouring bars.
When you’re finished with sunbathing, you can wander into Achavari’s old town. It’s a great place to pick up traditional lacework, pottery or olive-wood souvenirs. A 10-minute walk from here, you’ll find the remains of some Roman baths. In the opposite direction, meanwhile, you’ve got the Hydropolis waterpark, where you can zoom down giant water chutes and glide along the lazy river.
With a prized position along the famous Corfu Trail, Acharavi is a hotspot for hikers. You can join other ramblers making the 220-kilometre journey past olive groves, forests and gorges. Alternatively, hop on a tour bus to climb the slopes of Mount Pandokrator – half an hour’s drive away. On a clear day, you’ll be rewarded with views of rolling hills and Albania from the top.
