One of the biggest beaches at the island. It has a couple of all-inclusive hotels that has access to the sea, and that part of the beach is the best with grass and palms. (Also you can for free walk in to hotel and use their pool and jacuzzi.)
Sidari - Canal d'Amour.
We had our lunch at the Wave taverna facing the beach. It wasn't really that very special, but the portions we had were really huge! Iris also had some nice conversations with the parrot, which was quite funny to witness.
After this lunch we we visited the western point of the resort. Right there we saw the unique and striking sandstone cliffs, carved by wind and water. The stone is soft and easily eroded by the motion of the sea and therefore constantly changing. A foothpath along the grass covered hillocks gave access to a the sandy coves, rocky gorges and the famous Canal d'Amour. Originally this rock formation was in the shape of an arch, though this has crumbled away some time ago. The legend says that any woman who swims its length will win the man of her dreams.
We also saw some 'hoodoo' like sandstone formations like we saw in Bryce Canyon in the United States of America. We stayed for a while and watched all the different shades of yellow and admired the remarkable cliffs, rock formations, tiny coves and narrow channels. We hopped around from cliff to cliff and saw it all from a lot of different angels. Although the area around the Canal d'Amour did smell a little, we definately liked this wonder of nature.
The Ionian Islands are situated down the west coast of mainland Greece in the Ionian Sea. The islands are comprised of a core group of six that includes Corfu, Paxos, Lefkada, Ithaki, Cephallonia, and Zakinthos. The colonians are characterized by green, lush, landscapes, a fertility that is a direct result of heavy rains that sweep over the archipelago from October to March. The Ionians enjoya delightful climate, a few degrees cooler thean the islands capitals.
Despite damage from several earthquakes, Venetian influence still remains evident in the architecture.
To be honest, I did not enjoy this beach. I needed to keep my sandals on as the pebbles hurt my feet too much.
It was fun sitting under the umbrella watching the watersports. My husband did some para-sailing, wonderful views from up there.
Corfu town is graceful and elegant and is sandwiched between a pair of forts. It has a gorgeous esplanade where the Corfiotes play cricket most sundays.
