The famous Canal D’ Amour is a beach of extraordinary beauty, which can be found at Sidari Corfu. Sidari, one of the most popular resorts of Corfu, is situated at the north end of the island, around 30 kilometres from Corfu town.
To the left from the main beach of the resort you will find the Canal D’ Amour, an opening in the rock in the sea, a tunnel. The tradition says that whoever swims through that passage will find the love of their life on the other side. Some say that this legend was born due to the feeling you get while swimming there, a strong internal need to find your one and only mate!
Truly one of Corfu’s great natural wonders, all of the beach is covered by small bays and coves. The water and the wind have carved the rock creating impressive holes that look like they have been created by the hand of an inspired artist. The sea bed in this beach is quite interesting as well, so it is the ideal place for snorkeling.
Visited by thousands of people each summer, it is a stunning location well worth the visit, despite some minor issues you might face during your visit. More specifically, Canal D’ Amour can get so busy and crowded that it can be difficult for someone to relax, but if you do not mind the crowd, it is better to get there early in the morning in order to find a spot.
