Corfu Acharavi beach is the longest beach in the Ionian sea. It extends up to 3km in a sandy beach, suitable for families with young children and couples. There is public transportation from Corfu town (approx 42km) but it will take you more than an hour to get here. Best way is by car or motorbike which you can park safely next to the beach for free.
On this magnificent Corfiot beach you can enjoy the all the basic facilities (sunbeds, umbrellas, water sports, beach bars) you might need while on the main road which is parallel to the beach there are many super markets, restaurants, tavernas, fast foods and gift shops. The area has also a big portfolio of accommodation properties for your summer holidays, from studios to 5* all inclusive hotels.
Once you arrive in Acharavi resort, every path on the left side is leading to different parts of the beach! Acharavi is also famous for the annual local beach volley tournaments.
Acharavi is well connected with other near-by resorts (Sidari, Roda) and some old and abandoned villages (Perithia) on a mountain landscape which looks more like mainland Greece. On the mountain villages some tavernas are serving local recipes and snacks based on their own bio-growned production. This is a real opportunity to taste home grown tomatoes, peppers, ocassionally some cheese and free range pork, chicken and from time to time some rabbit or a woodcock.
If you head back to town try the east road through Kassiopi and Kouloura. The coastal road is magnificent and passes by olive groves, overlooking the Ionian sea and all the north-east beaches.
Tip: Don't miss the opportunity to visit the Folcloric museum of Acharavi where you can see a complete representation of Corfiot houses of the previous centuries, decorated by rare artifacts who were collected by the owner the previous decades! The ticket of the museum is only 3Euro per adult.
