Agios Georgios


Getting About Locally

For illustration only ! Sorry but donkeys are not available for rides!!

Many visitors to this area love to walk and there are numerous walks in and around San George some of which are described on these pages. To go further afield there are Mountain Bikes, Scooters, Motor bikes and Car Hire available in the resort from respected local businesses at reasonable prices. (See link to separate page)

Local Public Transport

Local Public Transport is very limited and there are now (2017) 2 bus routes during the summer season. The buses are air-conditioned and the drivers are quite used to foreign tourists. Unfortunately there are no other public transport routes which tourists wishing to visit other resorts in the area can use. ( Note that some departure times for both routes are quite similar but the buses go in opposite directions so make sure you get on the bus on the correct side of the road !!)

Bus to Corfu Town

The most popular is to Corfu town. During the summer tourist season there are 4 buses a day into the Town, but really only one is of any use if you wish to return by bus the same day ! This leaves the beach at 10.30 a.m. daily (not Sundays) -- return leaves the town at 4.15 p.m (do not miss it !!)

Bus to Sidari, Arillas and San Stefanos

There is now also a new route in the opposite direction to Sidari, calling at Arillas and Agios Stefanos.

There are 4 buses most days (none on Sundays) but the most useful for visitors will be at 10.30 and 12.15 from the Alkyon Hotel at the southern end of the resort. Other pick-up points are along the beach road before the buses leave Agios Georgios for Arillas via the steep hill just past Marias' Snack Shack. Again, note the return times which are early, as the only option is a taxi. (Details and route map)

Timetables from Green Buses web-site:

Timetables and prices (NOTE: During winter this only shows the reduced winter schedule.)


Otherwise taxis are available but naturally more expensive. Rouvas Taxi Service(Tel. 0030 697 5744947 from the nearby village of Pagi is often used by the hotel owners. The number is a useful one to keep. Bear in mind that the actual Taxi rank is in Sidari which may add to the cost.

For Groups of people an option is a Minibus taxi (up to 17 persons), see Website for 'My Corfu Driver ' https://mycorfudriver.gr/

Car Hire

To make the most of a holiday in this somewhat out-of-the-way resort a hire-car is useful. We have hired cars from several local firms at considerably lower prices than the major International companies, and have been very satisfied with the cars and service (see side panel Menu).
There are many places worth visiting. Choose from other coastal resorts such Arillas, Agios (San) Stefanos, Sidari, Roda, Acharavi, Kassiopi and numerous others or just visit the lot as Corfu is so small. For the real flavour of Corfu do not miss a slow meander through the beautiful countryside of the quiet central areas. ( See Link).

Our favourite "not to be missed" short car trips are to:

  • Afionas for drinks at Dionysos taverna or neighbouring Porto Timoni Cafe to take in the magnificent view over Agios Georgios bay, and either the Three Brothers or Panorama Restaurants for spectacular evening sunsets.( See Afionas Link).
  • Pagi village ( See Pagi Link) for coffee or drinks at a local greek cafe-bar, and on up through Prinilas via the twisting hill road with its magnificent views to the small village of Makrades, now well known for its souvenir shops and the local residents who leap out into the road waving cars to stop to buy their goods. (See link to Angelokastro)
    For a longer trip carry on through Makrades down through Lakones with more superb views over the rocky bays of the famous resort of Paleokastritsa.
