Holidays to Roda
The intimate fishing village of Roda is in the northwest of Corfu’s town centre, Kerkyra. The town is classed as one of the best places to visit in Corfu as it is home to one of the longest beaches in the area. The unspoiled village makes for an ideal location for families, couples or lone travellers looking to explore and unwind. The village stands out from other areas of Corfu as it still has many of the original buildings, giving it a unique, rare quality. Roda is only a short cab ride away from Corfu’s main stage for nightlife, meaning you get the best of both worlds.
Holiday activities in Roda
Check out Roda beach, a popular destination for families and youth. The beach is a long stretch of sand and shingle and the longest in town, meaning you will have plenty of room to take an undisturbed walk, stretch out and bask in the warming Greek sun. The beach has been awarded with a Blue Flag for its cleanliness and shallow waters which allow for safe swimming. The beach includes a water sport school, where you learn to jet ski, sail a boat and even have a go at amateur surfing. If you would prefer to take a seat back and relax, you can take part in a boat cruise so all you have to do is unwind, get your camera out and admire the views.
Go for a stroll around the town to see some ancient churches, the old town hall and other original buildings for great photo opportunities and a great insight into Greek history. See Saint George’s church in the middle of the village, which was established in the 17th century. You can also see the amazing ruin of the temple of Apollo, which was built in the 5th century BC. You can venture further out to see the coastal mountain range of Albania and the stunning Mountain PantoKrators which is a great location to picnic and take in the ‘out of this world’ sights.
