Acharavi is a very popular resort on the North coast of the island. The original settlement lies along the two miles of sandy beach and clear shallow water, the contrast of the surrounding mountain landscape makes for some stunning scenery. The beach is close to the main town where good tavernas can be found. Accommodation ranges from 5* villas and luxury hotels to budget friendly self catering studios and rooms, and amenities, which include the ‘Hydropolis’ water park, are very good. In 1985, during the construction of a new road, remains of Roman Baths were found; they are thought to have been part of a large Roman settlement. The Folklore Museum is an interesting trip back in time to how Corfu once was. Car hire is recommended as this the North of Corfu has much to see.
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.
Panorama Restaurant and 7th Heaven Cafe, a magical place on the top of the cliffs above Logas Be.
At 906m high Mount Pantokrator is the highest point on Corfu. On a clear day at the summit, and despite it being 130km away, it is possible to see Italy, as well as the whole of Corfu and Albania. At the top is café for who have reached the summit, a well and a telecommunications tower. The church dates from 1689; however in 1347 the first monastery was built with the help of the Perithians.
The Folklore Museum of Acharavi was inaugurated in October 2008 in a building of more than 1,000 square metres.
