Acharavi – huge beach and tourist destination in north Corfu

This was a village, clustered round the well in the middle a few years ago, but it is now a small town, with banks, supermarkets, schools etc.

The old village can be found, but has to be searched out, hidden behind the modern buildings fronting the main road, ends on the lanes leading down to the sandy beach.

There are many tavernas, bars and shops here, so many that local people no longer need to make trips to Corfu Town, almost everything can be found on their doorstep!

Along the coast is a water park which appeal to children of all ages, and then the nature reserve of Agios Spyridon, with a lake containing wildlife of great interest to Gerald Durrell, whoihad a house here for a while.

Up in the hills behind Acharavi is the abandoned village of Old Perithia, now gradually being brought back to life, with some excellent tavernas which are necessary having made the long haul up there!
