Large, sandy and full of activites, Sidari’s main beach is situated between the harbor and the cliffs of Canal D’ Amour. The Channel of Love is one of the most popular spots in Corfu, as according to tradition, couples who swim through the narrow canal will get married soon. With beautiful crystalline waters, and unique formations of rocks, it is a very stunning area. On the streets of Sidari there are plenty of snack bars, cafes and restaurants, which keep the area quite busy in general.
Nature, by way of the sea and wind, created the Canal d’Amour. The sandstone has been eroded by the elements and the grooves that scarred the rock face formed the channel.
There are legends attached to these stunning rock formations, the most famous being that if a couple swim together in the Canal they will stay together forever and if the Canal is in shade whoever swims in the water will always be lucky in love.
Historically, a small traditional fishing village, the town itself has been heavily developed and with more luxury villas now outside it, but it remains a summer social centre heavily visited by tourists.
