Welcome to Agios Georgios

Agios Georgios

St George South, or Aghios Georgios, is a rather laid back placce on Corfu’s southwestern coast. Bars, anumber of cafés, shops and tavernas spread out along its coastline. A fantastic 6 kilometre long sandy beach is the perfect place to kick back on. Further inland, country walks to peaceful villages are also an option. Corfu Town, and the airport, are just over half an hour away. Both beaches here have their rightfully earned Blue Flags flying high, and the golden sands stretch on for 6 kilometres. Sunloungers and a substantial selection of watersports are available. Both beaches are obviously very popular but you can always wander towards the quieter north end to escape the some of the crowds. You can also venture out of Aghios Georgios itself and you’ll find easy paths winding through olive groves – perfect for easy late afternoon strolls or perhaps a picnic lunch!  If you'd like to get a taste of traditional Corfu village life on your holdiay, you might want to head inland for about 3 kilometres to Argirades. a small village with some great cafés and incredible sweeping views over Corfu's coastline. Within striking distance you’ve got Gardiki Fort, a Byzantine castle about 8 kilometres away. Corfu Town, with its stunning orthodox cathedral, old fortress and museums, is about 35 minutes’ drive away. Here the highlights are Corfu Town's main square, where cricket is still played today, and the Liston, an elegant and buzzing Italian-style colonnade.
