Sidari, located on the beautiful Ionian island of Corfu, was once just a couple of small fishing villages, but has now developed into a large holiday resort. If you're looking for a busier resort, with plenty of shops, entertainment and nightlife, then a holiday in Sidari is the perfect choice. Relax and sunbathe on one of the resort's three beaches during the daytime – there's the long sandy bay that forms the main beach, the Megali sandy and shingle beach to the east of the harbour or the coves of the Canal D’Amour to the west. The beach resort of Roda is approximately 4 miles west of Sidari and is a good choice for a change of scenery. Fascinating historic Corfu Town is only 26 miles away and can be reached by bus, along with the resorts of Kassiopi and Aghios Stefanos on the north east of the island. Sidari has been long been a favourite with British holidaymakers - whether you want to relax on the beach, shop till you drop or party until the early hours, a holiday in Sidari has something for everyone!
