St George South Holidays

GENERAL

Overview

Situated on the Southwest coast of Corfu, the resort of St George South is also known as Agios Georgios and is all about the peace and quiet. While Corfu is awash with cultural sights and historical attractions, sometimes you just need to find a resort where you can relax on the beautiful sands of Greece, feeling the sun on your bronzing skin. St George South is one of those resorts. Home to two long beaches, St George South is all about the relaxing opportunities, with its easy tempo being a major draw for laidback families and couples alike.
Soak up the sun on the north and south beaches, or sign up for a ride on the waters with one of the many watersports activities available in the resort. Alternatively, get away from it all and take a leisurely stroll along the beach in search of a quieter haven. Whatever your hopes and dreams, you can guarantee that a stay in St George South will answer them.

Places to Go

Lake Korrision Lagoon
Hire a bicycle and set off on an adventure to explore Lake Korrision lagoon. If you choose to walk, it's 20 minutes from the north beach which is signposted so that you don't get lost. As a nature reserve, separated from the sea by strips of sand, Lake Korrision is home to an array of beasties, including sea turtles, lizards and rare birdlife. Take a picnic with you and enjoy the sights and sounds for the afternoon.
Corfu Town
Day trips operate regularly to the island's capital so that you can explore and enjoy what's on offer. Alternatively, it's a mere 35 minutes' drive away. Take in the sights, visit the museums, palaces, and historic forts or shop till you drop before stopping for lunch at one of the elegant restaurants.
Albania
Just a short boat ride from Corfu, Albania can often be overlooked when it comes to tourism potential, and therefore is relatively untouched by the industry's hands. It's only recently started to become appealing to tourists, with the port of Saranda and the World Heritage Site of Butrint being particularly intriguing. Explore the archaeological treasure that is Butrint and walk its ruins to feel like you're stepping back in time. Don't forget the passport though!

Things to Do

Countryside Walks
Perfectly placed for an escape if you want a change from sunbathing, holidays in St George South are as much about the rural offerings as they are the beachfronts. Enjoy leisurely walks among the olive groves. Stop at one of the rustic villages, such as Argirades, where you can chill and watch the world go by at a café, just how Greek life should be.
Explore Underwater
Explore the underwater kingdom with the help of professional instructors. They'll not only teach you all that you need to know but they'll be right there with you when you plunge beneath the ripples. Alternatively, if you already know what you're doing, go it alone and explore the depths.
Head for Sivota
Pop to the north of the island for a chance to explore Sivota, its blue lagoon and the caves that the area is renowned for. Join a cruise to visit the area in style and top up your tan on the deck as you sail between the various stops.
