Rent a Car Sidari
Sidari is 32 km away from Corfu Town and lies on the northwestern shore of the island’s coast. Sidari's main characteristic is its geological formations, with the sea penetrating the rocks and beaches and creating natural coves with peculiar shapes. In Sidari, excavations found findings of a prehistoric settlement dating from the Neolithic Era to the Bronze Age. It is a lively resort in which the Canal d'Amour dominates the area’s natural landscape. This natural passage was formed by sandy sea masses and thus created narrow channels and coves. It is worth exploring the underwater sea caves such as Dionysus Cave, Apotripiti Beach, and Mermaid’s Rock. According to tradition, Canal d’Amour got its name because whoever manages to swim across will soon meet his or her soulmate.
