The Greek island of Corfu has a touristic gem that is ripe for plucking. It lies hidden in the north-western part of the island and goes by the name of Saint George or Agios Georgios. This is really one of the greenest seaside resorts anywhere in the world. This locale provides the perfect surroundings for deep relaxation, featuring stretches of soft sandy beaches and temperatures tailor made for that much sought-after tan.

The chief reason tourists spend their hard-earned money on a sortie to this Mediterranean island is utter relaxation. And they are never disappointed as they find kilometres of soft golden sands, the endless blue waters of the sea and a cloudless sky waiting for them on arrival. The slow pace of life in this village is sure to further lull visitors into completely forgetting the cares of life. Visitors are free to splash about in the shallow waters with their kids as well. Those into water sports will find themselves spoilt for choice with water skiing, wind surfing, sailing and canoeing among the options available to them. To discover the treasures of the deep visitors can rent diving gear and also learn how to scuba dive from the Diving Fun Club.
Equally relaxing is a promenade through the lush olive and Cyprus trees that are plentiful just behind the beach. This terrain is a bit hilly and renting a mountain bike to traverse it is not a bad idea. Nature lovers will be particularly glad they took the trouble of booking a holiday to this locale as they will discover exotic plant species as they hike from the beach into the greenery behind it. They will also encounter different kinds of butterflies to pique their interest.
A visit to Pagi Road will reveal a good number of eateries offering varied cuisine including Italian, English and Greek specialities. There are also a number of bars where visitors can relax with a glass of their choice poison served alongside some bitings.
