Roda Introduction

Roda is located on the northern coast of Corfu, fairly close to Sidari. Once a traditional fishing village, Roda has developed into a popular resort for British tourists although it still has a working harbour where the fruits of the sea are landed daily. With a Blue Flag sandy beach, looking across to Albanian mountains and surrounded by verdant hills, Roda lies in a beautiful spot and tempts many visitors to its shores.

Why Go To Roda?

Roda is ideal for those seeking a relaxing seaside break where hot summer sun is guaranteed. Roda holidays offer many recreational facilities for families, good accommodation, and restaurants catering for all. With shops and bars in plenty, there is much to keep everyone happy.

Roda holidays are particularly popular with families for whom sandy beaches and safe bathing are a priority. Couples of all ages come to relax not only in the warmth of the sun but in the hospitality of the locals. There is also provision of water sports for more active holidaymakers.

When To Go To Roda

The Roda holiday season begins at Easter and continues until the end of October. Temperatures at the beginning and end of the season are in the low twenties and rise to the mid thirties at the height of the summer.

Roda - The Place

Roda on the north coast of Corfu, once a sleepy fishing village, is now a bustling little holiday resort which manages to retain its traditional atmosphere. Sheltered by hills, its long stretch of sandy beach slopes gently into crystal seas providing safe bathing for children and less confident swimmers. A number of water sports are available and if more are needed, the neighbouring resort of Sidari has a greater variety.

Roda has a range of accommodation, with hotels and apartments to suit most budgets. Numerous restaurants and tavernas cater for even the most conservative of British palates, with some serving full English breakfasts as well as chips with everything. Although there are bars galore and some are lively, Roda is not a resort that rocks through the night. The resort has many small shops for holiday essentials as well as the usual gifts and souvenirs.

Holidays to Roda offer a variety of recreational activities. These include hose riding, with trekking into the hills, and go-karting. A short journey to Acharavi takes you to the Hydro-Polis water park with slides and flumes to excite all members of the family. The island capital, Corfu Town can be reached by local bus. It is a very attractive town and well worth visiting particular if you have an interest in history or enjoy shopping.

Roda Nightlife

Roda nightlife reflects the resort's popularity with families. Although there are some lively bars, evenings are generally spent enjoying a meal and a drink under the stars. The larger hotels provide their own entertainment.

Roda Shopping

While Roda shopping caters for all of your holiday needs, those who want more can take the bus to Corfu Town where there are large numbers of specialist retailers, boutiques and hundreds of gift and souvenir shops. Popular purchases include pottery, items fashioned from olive wood, jewellery and embroidered linens.

Roda Eating

Roda eating caters for all palates, even the most pernickety. There are numerous restaurants, tavernas, bars and cafes serving every type of food. As expected in a fishing village, sea food abounds and features prominently on menus. Fresh from the morning catch and simply cooked, it is both tasty and good value. Children are made very welcome and their tastes and portion sizes are usually accommodated. Local wines are pleasing to the palate and the pocket.
