St George Bay
with its long sandy beach lies to the south of the coastal Lake Korission, on the South West of the island (about 45 minutes from the airport). Surrounded by olive groves, and boasting an amazing sandy beach.

To the north of the resort are sand dunes and the saltwater lagoon, lake Korrision, a must for lovers of wildlife. (Occasionally, you may see a snake so be careful.)

If it's a quiet, Greek taverna, playing traditional music you are after, these can easily be found. Many Tavernas offer traditional Greek nights.

There is an endless supply of day trips, boat trips and excursions available from the travel agents around the resort.

St George is a very laid back resort, suitable for couples and families, however may not be suitable for those seeking an energetic night life.
The resort is an ideal place for that laid-back relaxing holiday. If
you do not want to spend all day on the beach, there are plenty of beach side tavernas for you to enjoy. Serving everything from sandwiches to four course meals.
If you are after an isolated spot on the beach walk a few hundred meters along the shore.
St George is an ideal resort for those who enjoy walking. A stroll though the olive groves to the traditional Greek village of Agirades is a must for superb views of the east and west coast.

Hello, arriving in 2 weeks, staying at Aquis Sandy Beach resort in Agios Georgios South. I am looking at booking a minibus transfer with corfuairporttransfers. com as their prices are very reasonable, however after lots of trawling through the internet there are mixed reviews. Any other recommendations? We are a party of 8 (4 adults, 4 children) 
We have also considered hiring cars and driving there ourselves, again, any help on this would be appreciated also.

Please help!! Thumbs Up

Thank you  Smile

Hi Colin,
Thanks for the heads up. Like you I use Travel Republic a lot for transfers. The prices today are dirt cheap compared to the beginning of the month.
Just booked a transfer to Agios Georgios South for £3.91 each and a transfer from Paleokastitsa for £5.02 each.
As normal we are travelling around the island again.
We have used their service for different resorts around the island and always had good service. Have used them a few times for Kassiopi and they were very good. They dropped people at different resorts all the way up the east coast to Kassiopi and were quite quick.

I'd try and explore a different part of the island- returning to the same place after some years can be a disappointment as it will certainly have altered (inevitably).  Think about Agios Gordis or Agios Georgios (south)

Head south from Ag. Gordios to Kato Garouna and Ag. Mattheos.  From there join main road south

If you go left off this road you can visit Petriti and Boukari, both unspoilt, places to swim and eat the freshest fish possible.

If you go right off the main road you can go to Vitalades, Marathias, and Issos (avoiding a large resort like Ag. Georgios)

Or just go to Agios Mattheos, down to the beach past Gardiki castle beyond the lake (Halikounas), or at the castle bear right to Prasoudi beach, on to Paramonas and then the narrow coast road that winds through Pentati and ends up back at Ag. Gordios.

Hi Carol,
l've just written a reply to you and deleted it accidentally. I think there is a bus, l'm sure l've seen it on one of the signs at the bus station. I think Mike and l walked there when we stayed in Agios Georgios South, a beautiful walk. We have definitely driven through. The pension is lovely isn't it? Does that mean that you're not going to Paleo in May? Still hoping to have a week in Paxos before Liapades.

Agios Georgios is north of Paleo, Agios Gordios is south of Paleo and Agios Georgios (South) is further south still!!

Hi Jance,
Which Agios Georgios/Agios Gordios are you referring to as you have posted in both forums. They are two very different places.
Agios Georgios is on the NW coast and Agios Gordios is on the west coast but much further south.

To further confuse the issue there is also Agios Georgios South (St. George South).

...continuing from previous post...  see previous page for Lakones...

Now, someone wanted to know about the higher trails.  I did try following the Corfu walking guide, but I found it difficult and unnecessarily complicated; constantly cutting across country at unidentifiable points.

So, back to Google Maps.  On the plain map screen, it's a short distance North-East from Makrades to Vistonas (a small farming village), then there's a road round the back of the hill above Lakones to Agia Anna, then down to Doukades and the road we know out of Paleo.  There's also a long track marked from part-way along the Lakones hill road up to the edge of Agia Anna.  My walking guide would have you go up to Lakones, then take this trail to Agia Anna, Alimmatedes, then loop back round and down to Lakones via the trails.

Now look at the satellite imagery and you'll see an angled trail leading down from the main road to a clearing about 400m North-East of Lakones.  This is the church of Vitoulades - slightly misleading as I was really looking for the abandoned 'ghost village' of Vitoulades.  I now think that is at the end of the path another 300m to the North-East.  I wonder if there's a way across what is quite a severe slope?

Anyway, I came down from the road above.  At the junction there's a prominent red raised church just to the north.  The main track (concrete then gravel) goes up and over a saddle between the hilltops and comes down to a memorial pillar.  From there, the main track leads on South to the church.  But look closely on the satellite images.  Where that pillar is there's the start of two trails.  The lower one cuts across the hillside then zig-zags down above Lakones.  I believe I came out at the large building at the top of the village (rather than the buildings to the far eastern end) and was able to walk straight down between the houses to the road.  But be careful, as this donkey trail is much tougher than the lower one - less well-trodden presumably - and the stones are far more prominent and tough to walk on.  I'm not sure how tough it would be to go up this way.

The map does show a track to the west of Lakones, between the Bella Vista and the Golden Fox, that heads up to the Vistonas road, without too much zig-zagging.  I might try and find this way up next time, then go round above Lakones to find Vitoulades then come down the upper trail again.

The other useful path is a concrete road that loops around from Makrades and into the back of Krini.  Off the corner of that is a gravel trail downhill that heads to a clearing overlooking a drop-off to the coast.  Through a split in the rocks it descends on a zig-zag walled path with fantastic views over Agios Georgios bay.  Again, the satellite images on Google Maps show this steep ridge about half a mile North-West of Makrades.  From there it's still a couple of miles across the lower plain to Agios Georgios proper, so you may want to just admire the view then head back.  Or if you do go on, see if you can get a taxi as there's no easy way back over that ridge.  Personally I think it'll be easier to reach Agios Georgios from the likes of Sidari to the North.

At first I thought you were talking about Agios Georgios beach, which is achievable in a day, though a taxi back would be nice.

The route South you're talking about is over a dozen miles (as the crow flies) across a steep landscape.  There's something called the 'Corfu Trail' but you're expected to tackle it over several days.  Round from Paleo to Liapedes, you just follow the road out and follow the roadsigns.  It's about equivalent in effort to your trip up to the Angelokastro.  But it's far easier to swim across from the Acapulco bar on the edge of Paleo.  I think there's a route over the rocks there if you'd rather cut short the longer road route.

But Pelekas and Agios Gordios?  That's at least half an hour if not more by car.  On foot, getting on for 15-20 miles allowing for the winding routes and steep climbs.  It'd be a tough route for an overnight competitive hike.  By day, in the summer, it'd be suicidal.  But if you're looking for a way of thinning out applicants for the Marines or something, be my guest...

Seriously though, get a good map with terrain marked on it, do some more research, and try not to be too ambitious.

Good map BUT...   Can't speak for all areas but around Agios Georgios/St George South, you could find yourself in a bit of trouble if driving as one or two of the links shown as roads (eg Agios Georgios to Marathia) are little more than dirt tracks that I don't even venture down in a 4*4 Jeep!.

Hi all
Going back to Corfu in May hopfully but to Agios Georgios south, never been there before, staying in the Sandy Beach resort...

Is it worth booking a transfer though the agent or just getting a taxi as the transfers are close to £50 for two of us.

Thanks all

Nathan

I would head south and have lunch at Boukari before going onto Petriti for the evening (a diversion up to Chlomos for a drink in one of the most beautiful villages with stunning views might be a good idea. Stay 2 nights in Petriti and from there you can explore the fantastic beach of the south west coast and the wetlands area at Lefkimi.
Then leave Petriti and drive via Agios Mattheos to Agios Gordios, and Pelekas and on to Paleocastritsa.
I would only stay one night there, but visit the monastery in the evening.
Next day go north stopping to visit Angelocastro and then stay on Agios Georgios Pagi for a couple of nights so you can explore the north west (Afionas area). 
I would then head across to the  north east, visit Perithia, and stay three nights in Kassiopi to explore Perithia and the Pantocrator villages, also hire a boat one day and go down the coast finding one of the beautiful little coves to have to yourselves!

[QUOTE=jance]  we are staying at Villa Anthoussa in Paleo, and yes we will have a hire car. . [/QUOTE]

OK Jance for a lovely scenic drive try this.  As already recommended drive up the hill through the village of Lakones enjoying the superb views on the way. At the top turn left in Makrades to visit the ruins of the fort called Angelokastro which looks down onto Paleo. Then carry on from Makrades towards Vistonas where you turn left towards the little village of Pagi. Stop en route for great photos across Agios Georgios bay with Albania in the far distance.
Now drive down to Agios Georgios bay and then proceed along the beach road and up the other side to the lovely 'not to be missed' village of Afionas which sits astride a promontory so has views both north and south. Parking is difficult at busy times but find somewhere in the main street or further back. There are a few excellent  tavernas, some rather hidden, but  none of which should be missed so you will have to return another day!!

Hi,
It sounds great at Agios Gordios, I too have never been south of Corfu Town as yet.
Just to confuse matters further Razaker, there are three St. Georges in Corfu, to my knowledge. Agios Georgios NW, Agios Gordios and Agios Georgios South
It's no wonder everyone gets confused. Confused  Confused  Confused

Hi,
Yes they are based in the north. It's very confusing as there are three villages in Corfu with similar names. Agios Georgiios NW, Agios Georgios South and Agios Gordios on the west coast. Only in Corfu! LOL

You could try booking a transfer with Travel Republic, they use Lord Travel on Corfu.  http://www.travelrepublic.co.uk/airporttransfers/.  Some friends have used them a few times and found them very reliable.  Where abouts are you staying in the village?
 
Agios Gordis is not south, its more central on the west coast.  Do they/you mean Agios Georgios? There are 2 of these, one north west and one south west.

Really great to have the Corfu Travel Guide Forums back again !! They are so useful for people wishing to visit Corfu for the 1st time including those who have chosen to visit Agios Georgios, whether for the 1st time or 20th.
This beautiful resort is known by several names all of which mean 'St.George'. To distinguish it from a similarly named resort in the south of the island it has been known as 'Agios Georgios north' or maybe more correctly (but less well-known by visitors) 'Agios Georgios Pagon (or Pagi) after the name of the nearby village of Pagi. It is often referred to locally as 'San George'.
