In the north of the island of Corfu, Sidari has not escaped the ravages of the hotel industry. It's a pity, because the bay, with its numerous coves, is truly lovely. The sea has patiently sculpted narrow channels here, including the famous Channel of Love: legend has it that anyone who swims across the bay will meet their true love. The best, closest and least crowded beach is Peroulades beach. When the sea is rough, the wild magnificence of the grey and ochre cliffs that overlook the narrow strip of sand is spectacular.
