There are two resorts in Corfu, both named Aghios Georgios. One is located in the north of Corfu and one in the south. Aghios Georgios in the north is a secluded resort that is suitable for independent travellers looking for a relaxing holiday. Whereas the north coast is not suitable for young families, the south coast welcomes couples and families looking for some sunshine. The resort is very good for children with little traffic and safe swimming. The transfer time from the airport to the north coast is around 2 hours whereas the transfer time to the south is around 1 to 1 and a half hours. The beach in the north has golden sands and some water sports are available here in high season; however, it is not a very suitable beach for young children. In the south, there are two beaches. Both have golden sands and are very wide and more importantly, safe. Sunbeds and parasols can also be found on the beach. Accommodation in the south consists of apartment complexes, studios and a hotel complex, while the north consists of mid-market apartments, smaller hotels and a few luxury villas.
The southern Aghios Georgios has plenty of activities at the beach as this is where many people spend the majority of their time. There are plenty of water sports here such as snorkelling, jet-skiing, paragliding, scuba diving, water-skiing and sailing. In the north, it is very quiet so there is only really the beach and hotel pools to concentrate on during the day, however there are a few excursions for you to go on. These include a boat to Paleokastritsa, going for walks up in the hills or going on a day trip to Corfu Town. Southern excursions also include a day trip t Corfu Town for shopping as well as an islands tour and a boat trip to Paxos Island.
Both the north and south Aghios Georgios have Greek taverns. A few places also offer English breakfasts. Greek food is the main option available to you in both areas. The nightlife on the south coast consists of bars, taverns and discos. The north is not that different with discos and a number of bars. The bars are generally modern or traditional so you have a choice. The bowling centre tends to be quite popular. Shops in the south consist of the basics of souvenir shops and supermarkets, whereas shops in the north consist of supermarkets, a jewellery store and souvenir shops. Public transport in the south is good with a bus that runs 5-times a day to Corfu Town. Other buses take you into other resorts. There are also taxis available or car hire.
