Agios Georgios

A FEW CAR or BIKE TRIPS

Trips by Car or Motor Bike

Many new visitors ask where they should go when they hire transport. Whilst this depends on personal tastes here are a few suggestions, gathered from visitors.

Short Trips


Afionas

(one of Corfu's "Must do" trips)

Without doubt no visitor staying at Agios Georgios should miss driving up to the village of Afionas (see link on left) on the cliffs to the right of the beach.



During the daytime the views to the south are best seen from Dionysos Taverna or adjoining Porto Timoni Cafe. Time your visit to the period between late morning and late afternoon when the high sun brings out the colours in the turquoise waters of Agios Georgios bay. For sunsets walk onto the headland behind that taverna to sit on one of the provided benches to enjoy the fantastic sky colourings or try one of the north facing Tavernas / Restaurants such as Three Brothers or the Panorama where you can watch the sun as it slips behind the islands.

Angelokastro

This is another "must do" drive! Drive to Pagi village and turn right to go through Prinilas and on up the winding road with its magnificent birds-eye views over Agios Georgios, Afionas and the islands beyond. (great photo opportunity at top)

.

After checking out the tourist-trap souvenir shops of Makrades take the right turn in the village centre to the ancient ruined castle of Angelokastro. (see link on left) plus (Suggested routes (2)


Arillas

A slightly larger resort than Agios Georgios with a nice sandy beach and good eating and drinking places.



San Stefanos

Another very popular resort with its own devotees who return every year. A good firm sandy beach and shallow sea is ideal for children. There is a seperate small harbour from which boat trips leave to the offshore islands.





Slightly Longer

Paleokastritsa

Take the Angelokastro route (see above) but continue on through Makrades along the main road. This winding road gives breath-taking views of spectacular Paleokastritsa with its 7 rocky bays.


Peroulades

Extremely spectacular cliff scenery of the "top-left" corner of Corfu from the restaurant on "the edge". Lovely views across to Albania.


Central Valleys

Get out the maps (for a bit of fun) and meander (that's the only way) through the heavily wooded countryside of central northern Corfu. Unspoilt villages, endless olive groves, beautiful valleys, hills and of course the sun-scorched mountain of Pantokrator.
It is a lovely way to discover the real Corfu !

Sidari

The north coast resort of Sidari attracts a lot of visitors and the many tavernas, restaurants, shops make it a lively place by Corfu standards. Sidari is famous for its unusual rock formations and narrow sea inlets of "Canal D'Amour" plus of course several sandy beaches.
But it's the music bars and night life which attracts many of the youthful visitors.
