The beach of Agios Georgios Pagon is one of the largest on the island of Corfu. Set in a wide bay backed by verdant hillsides this sweep of golden sand never gets too crowded, even in the summer. The small resort and village behind is fairly low key and generally caters for families.

Whilst the sand here is not the finest in the world it is a lovely golden colour. The coarse sand helps keep the water fairly clear, although not quite as clear as neighbouring Paleokastritsa which is more sheltered.

Also known as Agios Georgios NW because of its location on the northwest of the island, don’t confuse this with the other Agios Georgios in the south of the island, which frankly is no match. Being more or less west-facing, this is also a great spot for watching the sunset.

Agios Georgios Pagon is a winner of the coveted Blue Flag award which signify clean water and good amenities. The beach is also one of the best places in Corfu for watersports and there is a host of equipment on offer: Jet skis, dinghies, kayaks, pedalos and paddleboards can all be rented here. There are also umbrellas and sun loungers.

A popular excursion from the beach is a visit to the little cove of Porto Timoni. You can either rent a boat or join a boat trip to this unique, double-sided beach located just below the village of Afionas.

There are plenty of places to grab a bite of food from along the length of the beach with numerous tavernas, cafes and even a mini-market.

Agios Georgios is where the 220km long Corfu Trail hits the west coast. Starting at Agios Spiridon, on the northern tip of the island the trail takes in some of Corfu’s most beautiful sights, whilst avoiding the over-developed areas. Think juniper studded dunes, rocky gorges and rolling olive groves.
