Many years ago a young French couple came to Corfu. During their time in Corfu they reached Sidari. There they decided to visit Canal D’ Amour. They swam along the canal, and somewhere there, between wild nature and the sea they found an underwater path. After exploring it a bit they decided it was time to rest. There, they promised each other everlasting love, devotion, and loyalty.
Because of this story it has taken its name, Canal D’ Amour.
The locals believe so much in the power of this canal, that they say that any couple that will swim in those waters, they will stay forever together. Others believe that anyone who will swim, and is still single, there they will find the love of their lives. The reality though is that when swimming in those waters, and while having around all this savage beauty, it’s normal to feel alone and start seeking for human affection and company. Of course I can justify the locals, as Canal D’ Amour, is a unique place!
What is remarkable in this case is that it changes every year. The sea caresses the rocks, and creates a different landscape each year, making it unique and magical. The beach of Canal D’ Amour is quite small so that is why it’s full of tourists most of the time.
