Aghios Georgios holidays will cause a little confusion as there are two Aghios Georgios’ on the Greek island of Corfu, one on the northwest coast and the other on the southwest.
The Aghios Georgios to the north of the island is commonly known as San George and is practically a stress free zone, the wonderful curved bay and soft sandy beach that slopes gently into the calm waters of the Ionian Sea offers the ideal place to relax and unwind. The surrounding hillside offers stunning views over the bay and adjacent olive groves. Being slightly off the usual tourist track, holidays in Aghios Georgios North are wonderfully peaceful and rarely get overcrowded.
The wide, gently sloping beach attracts families and couples looking for some relaxation and tranquillity, the locals are very welcoming with tavernas and cafes offering fresh fish dishes and local specialities, the bars offer family friendly hospitality, with nightlife on Aghios Georgios holidays being very tame, head to nearby Sidari for something a little livelier.
There are water sports available, the soft breezes make wind surfing a popular choice, or hire a canoe and explore the hidden coves along the shoreline. Walking and cycling give the opportunity to probe the surrounding countryside and perhaps enjoy a picnic under the shade of the olive groves or pencil straight cypress trees, or stroll along the cliff tops and enjoy the panoramic views of the bay and Ionian Sea.
Accommodation ranges from self catering apartments, private houses and small welcoming hotels. Shopping is also laid back and minimal; mini markets are interspersed by a few gift shops and several supermarkets. If it’s peace, quiet and relaxation you are looking for, with the chance to unwind and leave the stresses of the outside world behind, Aghios Georgios North is the place for you.
