Acharavi – Αχαράβη

Acharavi is a large and busy resort on the north coast of Corfu and is known as the administrative centre for the north of the Island. It is self-sufficient in as much as it has banks, a post office, a dentist, doctors, supermarkets, shops and travel agents.

Location          North Corfu
Corfu Airport 40 km
Travel Time    70 minutes by car or taxi

Acharavi has a good selection of apartments with pools, houses on the beach as well as studios available.

Bars, Restaurants, Tavernas and Supermarkets
Acharavi is a family resort and there are many tavernas, restaurants, cafés, takeaways and bars to cater for all tastes. There is live entertainment every night and the bars are busy in the high summer. Just head down to the beach if you prefer a quieter evening and watch the sea rolling in.

There is a children’s play area at the beginning of the resort and because of the terrain being flat it is push chair and disabled friendly.

The main road is wide with shops either side and the old village lies behind up a hill. It is worth a visit to see the old church and houses.

There is a roundabout here called the pump where the villagers used to use to draw their fresh water from. Now it is a landmark in the middle of the road.

Beach & Swimming & Water Sports
The beach is a mix of shingle and sand and is accessed from the main road by several small roads that lead down to the large sandy beach. It is only 10 minutes walk from the resort itself. The water here is of good quality and remains at waist height for

There are boat excursions that go to Corfu town, the Islands of Paxos and anti Paxos in the south, the Greek mainland and even Albania.

The Hydropolis water park is nearby and is large enough to house a children’s area and all of the big rides you would expect to entertain teenagers and adults alike. You can spend the day there as there are plenty of places to eat, drink and buy ice cream.

The resort of Roda is situated about 2 km West of Acharavi.
