Also known as “The Channel of Love,” Canal D’Armour is a beautiful, unique beach on the Greek island of Corfu. It is a small beach with a limited amount of sun beds, so you will have to arrive early to get a spot, but when you get there, you’ll be more than happy you made the extra effort. This golden sandy beach, is enclosed by two yellow sandstone cliffs stabbing into the sea from the coastline. This provides a small, sheltered beach area and a secluded section of the sea for swimmers to enjoy. The Canal D’Armour beach is a stunning natural marvel which is perfect for visitors to gaze at while they unwind between its cliffy walls.
The beach is formed as a result of the seawater eroding the soft sandstone rock further inland, creating a number of fascinating caves and rock formations, which are great to explore. It is also believed that all couples who swim there remain in love forever, which is what gave it the “Channel of Love” pseudo name.
