Feb. 20, 2022 | Greece

In the west of Corfu stretches the picturesque beach of Agios Gordios. Cliffs covered with greenery, the sea in all shades of blue, a coastline of 1.5 km and many activities that await tourists from all over the world.

Here you can retreat and relax quietly near the rocks. Or merge with the large number of tourists in the central part of the beach and actively spend time. The infrastructure is well developed: there are sunbeds and umbrellas, showers, changing rooms, cafes and bars, stores and souvenir shops.

From Corfu it's a 18km drive which means that you can reach it in half an hour by renting a car. Everyone will find in Agios Gordios a holiday that will suit their taste and that is worth visiting.

Guide

Agios Gordios is not only a beach area but also a coastal town. There is only one main street but here you will find everything you need for shopping, gastronomy and an unhurried stroll along the quaint little houses.

Not far from the coast there is a small church from which the name of the village comes. It has a special atmosphere, so by visiting this place, tourists can plunge into the spiritual heritage of Corfu.

Therefore, do not limit yourself to the beach entertainment. Be sure to walk along the main street, climb higher up the mountain, which offers a panoramic view of the entire resort. Take cool photos, breathe the fresh cypress air, and walk past vineyards, citrus and olive groves.

The perfect plan for the day would be a morning relaxation on the beach, a delicious lunch at a tavern, and closer to sunset, a hike through the neighborhood.

Entertainment

Agios Gordios offers its visitors not only quiet lying on the sand and swimming in the sea, but also a lot of active entertainment.

Diving enthusiasts can dive into the underwater world with an instructor who will show the most interesting places. Or take a ride on a banana or a catamaran. If you rent a boat or a boat, you can see the nearby beaches and natural beauty. Each place on the coast is unique in its own way and worth your attention. But if you are limited in time, a quick look around from the sea is ideal.

There is a playground next to the beach where you can play with the kids for free. Also, volleyball and soccer games are popular here.

Local food

Like all over the island, Agios Gordios has a predominantly Mediterranean feel. You can always taste the freshest fish and seafood, the famous Greek salad, meat and vegetable pie, the freshest fruits straight from the tree, homemade cheeses and wine.

The cafes and restaurants attract you with their cozy, relaxing atmosphere. Sebastian's Taverna and Thalassa Restaurant Bar (Mediterranean cuisine), ARK Kitchen Bar (European, Greek cuisine), Black Rocks Seaside Restaurant Bar (beach bar with Mediterranean cuisine) and Creperie Massa (fast food, delicious desserts) are especially popular.
