Glyfada is home to probably the finest beach in Corfu. The long stretch of glorious soft sand slopes into the warm clear water, making this resort one of the best for a typical Greek beach holiday.
Very popular with families, couples and groups looking for a more laidback holiday, you can set up your sun loungers and spend everyday topping up your tan and cooling off in the sea. The beach is surrounded by shops, tavernas and bars so you don't even have to go far to stock up on basics or catch some lunch.
You will find pretty much all kinds of water sports on offer at the beach including water skiing, jet skiing, boat hire and paragliding as well as other sports such as beach volleyball. Or if you're feeling particularly daring there are some impressive rock formations slightly out to see which are popular for rock jumping.
If you want to explore then there are several cliff walks and coastal trails that you can follow, or even head to Moriotissa: a small bay to the north with an interesting monastery to visit.
There are many restaurants and tavernas to try, serving delicious Corfiot dishes and freshly caught seafood as well as a sufficient number of bars and discos to provide a good nightlife. The Aloha Bar is one of the liveliest and trendiest bars in the resort.
