Acharavi is a friendly, sunny resort on the northern coast of Corfu. It is a picture-postcard vision of golden sand, shady Greek bars and a laid-back way of life. If you’re up for a traditional Greek holiday this summer, Acharavi is the place to go. It may be on the smaller side, but don’t be fooled by its size. It's packed with everything you’ll need on the perfect holiday to Greece. Bars, shops, beaches and entertainment greet you everywhere you turn. It’s a chilled spot for couples or mates wanting to sit back and soak up the atmosphere, and it’s a safe place if you’re bringing the kids.
The Acharavi beach seems to go on forever. It has been awarded a well-deserved blue flag for its 3km stretch of gorgeous white sand and clear waters. It’s a beautiful spot for relaxing and enjoying the Mediterranean climate. If you’re up for something a bit livelier, Acharavi has a water sports centre that offers water skiing and parasailing. If you’d prefer to stay on the boat, there is also a place on the beach where you can hire boats and live out a real Greek dream on the deep blue sea.
Acharavi is speckled with a selection of tavernas that are great for stopping for a glass of ouzo and enjoying an authentic Greek atmosphere. The tavernas along the beach are particularly good for a slap up meal as you watch the sun set. The fresh seafood is definitely worth trying. Along the beach you’ll also find quieter bars where you can sit and sip a cocktail for a chilled evening. More bars are situated throughout the town that get lively at night, with plenty that show big sports events on the TV. The old town is a great place for a wander and some souvenir shopping, and there are even remains of some ancient Roman baths.
Whether you’re with the kids or your mates, the Hydropolis water park is a brilliant day out. Try beach volleyball, scuba diving or sit back on the Lazy River Ride and work on your tan. There is a good bar in the middle of the park for stopping for a drink or an ice cream.
