The resort of St George South is situated on the south west coast of the island. St George known as the 'sun-set bay' is approximately 35kms from Corfu Town.
Accessible by only one road that winds through dense olive groves, St George was once just a tiny fishing community.
Today it still retains much of it's charm & also boasts three wonderful sandy beaches, St George beach, Issos beach & Halikouna beach. Halikouna, the longest of the three is pure sand stretching for over a mile & attracts tourists, locals & Kite Surfers from all over Corfu.
Stretching out a little further across the sand dunes and desert like features is Lake Korission, covering an expanse of 1500 acres. The lake or lagoon here is a nature reserve & home to many rare bird species - ideal for walking & being close to nature as well as being a turtle-nesting area. This is truly a magical spot where sea & sand harmonise.
As the day draws to a close & the beaches begin to empty, join the locals in the tavernas, sample the local wine & delicious cuisine!
The Island of Corfu: The 'Emerald Island' of Corfu, known to the Greeks as Kerkyra, homes well watered and beautiful lush green hillsides where you will find an array of colourful flowers and vast stretches of olive groves and vineyards.
Sunny days, cool night breezes, friendly locals and fascinating history are just some of the memories that you will take home with you.Steeped in history both the Venetians and the British have occupied Corfu and you will still find much evidence of their architecture and rule here today. The cricket pitch in Corfu town is just one of the many interesting and quirky features.Corfu Town was built between two fortresses during the Venetian rule and is one of the most beautiful, most impressive and interesting cities in Greece. The population of Corfu Town is about 30,000,and is quite cosmopolitan compared to other islands in Greece. It is an amazing mixture of old tavernas, new cafes, bars and clubs plus the beautiful old city protected by the two fortresses.
The Ionian Islands: Among the 3000 inhabited islands of Greece, there is a small group of seven, known as the Eptanissa or Ionian Islands, located just off the western mainland seaboard.
Captivating landscapes of rugged mountains, green hills and the ever present turquoise warm shallow waters of the Ionian sea best sum up the Ionian Islands.
Over the centuries these islands have developed their own culture and identity, partly through their periodic occupation by foreign powers such as the Venetians, the Turks and the British.
Each Island is unique unto itself, varying not only from the rest of Greece but from it's neighbours.
