One of the best resorts in Corfu for getting away from it all, Aghios Gordios is a small resort located on the west coat of the island. The resort sits at the base of a dramatic range of hills protecting it from being overly developed and means it has retained its character as a Greek fishing village.
The highlight of the resort is the long sandy beach nestled between two headlands and this is where most tourists tend to spend their days topping up their tan and taking a dip in the sea to cool off. The water is warm and clear, perfect for swimming and snorkelling and the beach is surrounded by amenities to keep you stocked up with the essentials throughout the day. You can hire boats, canoes and pedaloes if you fancy being active and there are some water sports on offer from the beach.
An assortment of tavernas and restaurants are scattered across Aghios Gordios providing a choice of venues for a great meal out. One of the best restaurants is Sebastian’s Taverna serving delicious homemade Corfiot food and great wine.
You won’t find a wild nightlife and dance until dawn clubs in Aghios Gordios but there are a good handful of bars and discos in the area, with a regular bus service to Corfu Town where you can take advantage of the lively nightlife there.
