Acharavi is situated on the northern part of Corfu (Kerkyra).
It comprises a main road (the commercial centre of the North) with plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets and a bank. Leading off the main road various side roads end up to the beach, just around 10 minutes walk.
It has been established itself as one of the top resorts on the North of Corfu and is particularly suited to couples and families due to the wonderful beach and facilities provided.
It is around 40km from the airport and it takes about an hour to get into Acharavi. The scenery on the journey is stunning as this is through the mountain and quaint old Greek villages.
The roundabout in the centre of Acharavi is called “The Pump”, because this one used to be the village pump.
A road leads from the roundabout into the old village of Acharavi. This is often missed, but well worth a stroll as there are more bars and restaurants and older more traditional buildings in there.
Should someone wish can continue this road and drive up to the top of mount Pantokrator, through unspoiled villages and nature.
