Canal d’ Amour a unique spot favored by celebrities and many film crews

One of the most beautiful and well-known beaches in Corfu, the picturesque Canal d’Amour or “Channel of Love”, is known throughout Europe and worldwide as the beach for true lovers who want to stay together forever.

Canal d’amour is located in the north of the island near Sidari, about 32 kilometers (20 miles) from the main town and on the westernmost tip of the island’s northern shore, it is remarkable for its sculpted sandstone rocks which rise up on either side, forming a natural fjord-like canal.

Corfu’s history can be trace back all the way to Ancient Greece and Greek mythology. Corfu is known as Kerkyra in Greek, a name derive from the nymph Korkira. In Greek mythology, Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea, falls in love with Korkira, kidnapping her and hiding her away on the island that now bears her name.

The myth claims that Poseidon and Korkira gave birth to a line of people who became known as the Phaeacians. Corfu later makes an important appearance in another notable myth — on Odysseus’ journey back to Ithaca. He becomes shipwrecked and washes up on the shores of Corfu, where the Phaeacians help him continue on his journey back home.

According to local legend, couples who swim the length of the canal will stay in love forever while those who swim to its furthest tip will find the love of their life. Many visitors, however, prefer to simply toss a coin into its waters and make a wish for true love.

A unique spot lovely by tourists, celebrities, and many film crews over the years. According to the locals the Canal d’ Amour also boasts detoxifying and healing properties.

This is attribute to the rich deposits of clay that form in the sea. As the rocks are weather by the wind and saltwater, creating small lagoons and exquisite caves.

Many visitors Canal d’amour enjoy sitting on the rocks, scooping up handfuls of clay. Also smoothing it on their bodies and hair for a natural mud bath.

The area has been inhabite since ancient times with traces of a Neolithic settlement and earlier Mesolithic settlements found during excavations in Sidari.

Each year the beach, which has been popular since the 60s, receives a Blue Flag for excellence. It is also a good spot for diving and water sports.
