Agios Georgios Corfu travel guide

Agios Georgios lies just below Lake Korisson on the south-west coast of Corfu island. The long sandy beach makes this very popular resort, but it remains relatively quiet and laid back.

Access to Agios Georgios beach is off the road between Corfu Town and Kavos, beyond the village of Argirades where you turn right at a large 'beach' sign.

The beach has a car park at the north end but it's not very big and many park on the road that runs parallel to the beach.

There is quite a steep slope down to the sands and several well-marked access points, most of which include steps.

Agios Georgios beach has soft golden sand that slopes gently into the sea so it's great for children although sand spits can disappear quickly with the tide and strong currents also sweep this part of the coast.

Agios Georgios beach has a Blue Flag and there are plenty of beachside cantinas. A wide range of watersports is also on offer, from pedaloes to paragliding with boat excursions and day trips.

Trees at the back of Agios Georgios beach provide some natural shade but it's mostly exposed. There are showers, but toilets are in nearby tavernas.

The beach is very long and peaceful, isolated spots can be found. This is an ideal centre for walkers with paths threading through olive groves and up to hillside villages like Argirades.

To the north are sand dunes that lead to the saltwater lagoon and nature reserve at Limni Korrision. There is a bus service from the main road behind the beach and taxis are available.
