A picturesque former fishing village on Corfu’s northern coast, Roda has developed into a charming resort area whose popularity is quickly increasing – and it’s already particularly favoured by families looking for quiet relaxation. Roda’s main beach is a 7-kilometre-long sandy Blue Flag bay where there are sunloungers for rent, plus bars and tavernas for meals and drinks. The water is enticingly calm and shallow, making it perfect for young children. There are also water sports on offer, including parasailing, jet-skiing and beach volleyball for those wanting a little adrenaline.
On Roda holidays you’ll find all the facilities you could ever need, including hotels for every budget, international and traditional Greek restaurants, and bars offering theme nights. Just outside the village, there is miles of unspoilt countryside which is perfect for walks. Holidays to Roda have plenty to keep everyone in the family entertained.

Swim, swim, swim
