Introducing holidays to Arillas
Located on the north western coast of Corfu, the ‘Emerald Isle’, Arillas is the perfect getaway for those in need of relaxation. Away from the hustle and bustle of Corfu Town, Arillas offers you a taste of the relaxing way of life on the Greek Islands. Not to worry though! If you’re after a busier day, you can take a short bus ride over to the busy town easily.
Perfect for families and couples looking for a quiet Greek getaway, Arillas has plenty on offer. With a 1.2 mile long, blue flag beach, crystal clear waters, traditional family run tavernas galore and stunning local cuisine, Arillas has not become overrun by popular tourist culture.

Life’s a Beach
There’s plenty for families at this resort with blue flag beaches and shallow waters meaning it’s perfect for children wanting to paddle and play. Have them try and spot the islets on the horizon, rumoured to be the remains of Odysseus’ shipwreck, or treat them to a banana boat trip. If you’re after a busier day, take them along to the Hydropolis Water Park, just 30 minutes’ drive away. With water slides, jacuzzis, special pools for smaller children and toddlers and even a miniature farm, this will be a memorable day for all.
Arillas is perfect for water lovers. With an abundance of water sports and beach games you’re sure to be busy all day long. Boasting water boarding, sailing, speedboat rides and water skiing, a wet and wild holiday is in store. Why not hire a motor boat and explore the island? Or take a water taxi over to one of the surrounding islands. Head to the harbour and take a glass bottom boat trip and watch the marine life go by under your feet.
With only a 30 minute bus ride between Arillas and Corfu Town, why not spend a day there? With the city’s Old Town being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, there are plenty of winding streets and Venetian architecture for history and culture buffs. Head over to the Achilleion Palace and visit the old Empress of Austria’s palace or visit the Church of Agios Spyridon and see the relic of Corfu’s patron saint. There are plenty of shops and restaurants to explore and if you’re after an even longer trip why not take a ferry over to Albania for the day?
