Mediterranean landscape

Watersports are available along the beach for the active travellers while the adventurous journeymen choose to walk along the Arillas Trail. The long winding road takes you through secluded areas of greenery and up to the hills where you're rewarded with superb views over the rest of the island.

If you'd like to gain a different perspective on Corfu's coastline, head out on a boat trip around the island. You could even choose to sail out to visit nearby islands on a sunny daytrip. Gravia can be seen off the coast of Arillas and you'll find the only inhabitants of this wild island are sheep.

Drinking under the sun and the moon

Though Arillas could never be considered a party destination, it certainly offers you the opportunity to chill out and let loose. The island vibe is reaffirmed in the beach bars that look out to the sunsets over the ocean.

The bars featuring paradise names like Malibu Bar, Coconut Bar and Rainbow serve cocktails that are suitably tropical.

Sharon's Pool Bar isn't so-called because of the billiards table - many of the drinking spots keep your whistle wet during the day too where you can take a dip in the pools found by the bar.

Try Greek gastronomy

Gift shops keep your tourist needs satisfied with a good selection of island-made products. Simple jewellery and accessory options are presented alongside summer dresses and beachwear.

Chained supermarkets present Greek goods while some independent sellers provide locally grown produce like vegetables, olive oil and wine.

Variety of sumptuous tavernas

Greek and Mediterranean cuisine is the prominent theme found within the dozens of tavernas in Arillas. Each of the options offer their own take on Greek favourites with their own ambience set by the homely décor within.

Walks past the bushy exterior of the Armourada Restaurant to greet the friendly owners within, enter through the bamboo arch into Broukli Taverna or appreciate the coastal views underneath the large gazebo at the Akrotiri Café.

There are dozens more restaurants to see but you'll struggle to see them all as you may be convinced to keep returning to the first one you try.

Paths out of town

Arillas isn't too far away from Corfu International Airport but it is a deceptively long drive at an hour in total. It will feel like no time at all though as you drive through the winding roads at the heart of the island by the luscious wildlife that covers the terrain.

There are many footpaths leading out of Arillas which present hiking opportunities and routes into nearby towns. You can choose to walk or you could hire a bicycle to shorten the trips. From the village there are also scooters and cars available to rent which can take you all over the island.

Best time of year to visit

Outdoor activities in Arillas are accompanied by fantastic summer temperatures. Whether you're choosing to sail, to hike or to sunbathe, summer highs of 31°c are regularly enjoyed in this Corfiot town.

Visit the resort at the end of the tourism season to find drinking festivals on offer. Locals make the most of the remaining sunshine with an annual wine festival in early September and a beer festival in early October.
