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 lively hub
Acharavi sits on Corfu’s northern coast. It’s the main town in this part of the island, which means you’ll find plenty in the way of shops and nightlife. The central street is dotted with bars, shops and restaurants, and you’ll find even more along the little roads leading to the beach. The surrounding countryside is pretty spectacular, too – one of the world’s best walking trails sits in the hills behind town.
A golden-sand beach
This clean, sandy beach stretches the entire length of the town – a whopping 3 kilometres. It’s perfect for paddling and for little ones – it stays shallow for 50 metres out to sea. There are loungers and umbrellas for hire, and a top-notch selection of cafés and tavernas along the beachfront.
Visit Corfu town
Corfu Town, the island capital, is about a 40-minute drive away. Here you can wander the cobbled streets of the old town, or visit one of its top-class museums. There’s a 10th-century fortress to explore, along with the 16th-century Church of Agios Spiridon, with its red bell tower. But this city also has a lively, sociable side, and you’ll find no shortage of bars and restaurants in its backstreets.
