Rather confusingly there are two Agios Georgios’s (Saint Georges) on Corfu
, this one in the northwest and the other in the southwest. This one is around 30km away from the capital which would take about 45 minutes in a car.
The northern Agios Georgios is a small and relatively new resort that’s based around the large sand and pebble cove. This resort is known as Agios Georgios Pagon but is also often referred to as simply Agios Georgios north.
Don’t expect a traditional Greek setting but if you’re looking for a quiet and relaxed package holiday based around a nice beach then this could be the place for you.
There’s a decent selection of tavernas and bars, most close to the beach or offering a sea view so you can enjoy an evening meal and watch the sun go down.
You’ll also have supermarkets, souvenir shops, car hire outlets and ATMs amongst other facilities, all within walking distance.
Although not blessed with huge amounts of bars, Agios Georgios Pagon has enough to keep you busy in the evenings, most of them are down by the beach and some will stay open late and offer cocktails and some music.
Don’t expect Karaoke or live music as you’ll be unlikely to find them, there’s no night clubs either so probably best to avoid Agios Georgios Pagon if you’re looking to party or stay up late drinking and dancing.
The village is more suited to those that want to enjoy a nice evening meal and then a few drinks whilst taking in the scenery.
The biggest selling point to Agios Georgios Pagon is the fabulous Agios Georgios Pagon Beach
, It’s sand and pebble with water sports, sun loungers and loads of places to get food and drink.
Agios Georgios Pagon is also not far from Angelokastro
, Paleokastritsa Monastery
and the Corfu Aquarium
