Agios Giordios Corfu travel guide

Agios Giordios beach resort is set in a very scenic area - green even in August - and surrounded by tall cypress trees that can remind the visitor of Tuscany.

The village is very small, a single street with a handful of shops, cafes and bars and a couple of mini-markets. The street leads uphill to the bus stop and taxi rank where there are more tavernas, mini-markets and a few tourist shops and car hire.

The other end of the street leads to the Agios Gordios beach where there are boardwalks in both directions along the shore.

There is little here to attract young people, no discos etc and the bars tend to play quiet music. Parts of the resort are quite hilly, but you do get fabulous sea views from many hillside apartments.

Agios Gordios beach is also excellent, very sandy to the south but more stony to the north with plenty of sunbeds.

The sea is clear and clean, although it can get choppy when the breeze is up. There are some stones in the water so it is best to have footwear if you go swimming.

Agios Gordios beach has showers and lots of bars on the front where you can use the toilets. Parking can be a problem as the single road to the beach is narrow and comes to a dead end at the sands.

The local bus from Agios Gordios to Corfu Town is reliable with a service five times a day in the summer season. There are regular boat trips from Agios Gordios harbour to Parga, on the mainland.
