The picturesque resort of Roda is a favourite with families from all over Europe, particularly Britain, many of whom return year after year. Located on the beautiful northern coast of the Greek island of Corfu, Roda is ideal for those looking for reasonably priced package-holiday deals in quiet, scenic surroundings.
Holidays in Roda are enhanced by the fact that the resort is still very much a working village. Despite offering modern amenities and facilities, Roda retains the traditional Greek charm often missing in larger resorts. Children are made to feel extremely welcome on package holidays in Roda. Tavernas and restaurants serve largely traditional Greek fare but will often do everything they can to accommodate young diners who prefer British dishes.
Roda’s golden, sandy beach is one of its main attractions and, despite being very busy during the peak season, it’s always possible to find a quiet spot. The beach is lined with tavernas, stalls and restaurants offering refreshments and sunbeds for hire. Shopping in Roda tends to be limited to souvenir shops, but there are some charming boutiques selling handmade jewellery and homewares. There isn’t much in the way of nightlife in Roda but some restaurants host Greek dancing or live music, and many of the larger hotels lay on special entertainment for guests in peak season.
If you fancy a day away from the beach, the huge Hydropolis Water Park is just a short journey away in neighbouring Acharavi and attracts families of holidaymakers from all over Corfu. With impressive water slides, several pools and a huge variety of leisure facilities, it’s a great family day out. Be prepared: Roda has a fairly limited bus service but it’s still possible to reach most major attractions on the island without hiring a car.
