Acharavi holidays are a classic choice for breaks with plenty of sun, sea and sand. Located on Corfu’s northern coast, the town of Acharavi is beloved for its beach, which stretches for three golden kilometres and features glittering blue water that stays shallow for 50 metres, making it ideal for younger swimmers and paddlers. Acharavi also has a busy town centre where you’ll find everything you need, at prices to suit every budget.
If you want to feel like a local, there are plenty of traditional Greek tavernas, cafés and bars, as well as international dining and entertainment for a more cosmopolitan feel. Happily for families, holidays to Achavari are very kid-friendly. The beach is a safe place for playing and relaxing, with water sports on offer for teens and adults. For a slower pace, take long, lazy walks through the town and surrounding villages or along the coast – while the array of bars and clubs mean evenings can be as lively as you like.
Hit the beach
The main draw of Acharavi is the beach. You can rent a sunlounger and umbrella for the day, meaning you’ll only get up to cool off in the sparkling Ionian Sea.
Visit Old Perithia
Just beyond Acharavi you’ll find the ancient village of Old Perithia. Spend an afternoon here wandering its cobbled streets and admiring the traditional Corfiot architecture.
Go for a hike
There are plenty of marked trails and footpaths leading out of Acharavi – you can follow the signs for hikes through both the beach and hills.
