Holidays to Aghios Gordios take you to a pretty Corfu village promising golden sands, lively bars and a dash of old-fashioned Greek charm.
The Greek island of Corfu is dotted with many resort towns – but there’s just something special about Aghios Gordios. Tucked away on the island’s western coast, Aghios Gordios is a truly relaxing destination for a Cruise & Stay holiday, thanks to its long, sandy beach, the sea views and the rolling green hills.
The best of both worlds
For cruise travellers seeking a holiday that’s all about sunbathing, quiet dinners and secluded walks, then Aghios Gordios is the destination for you. If you desire more hustle and bustle, though, you can take advantage of the resort’s proximity to Corfu Town, the capital of the island. Just 30 minutes away by car, once you're in the capital you can indulge in culture, cuisine and shopping.
A beach fit for royalty
The crowning attraction of Aghios Gordios is its sandy beach, which stretches for more than a kilometre along the coast. With its azure blue waters and abundance of umbrellas and sunbeds, a lazy day here is a day well spent. When the evening rolls around, you can head up to one of the beachside tavernas for refreshments.
Traditional Greek villages
Aghios Gordios has plenty to keep you busy through your whole Cruise & Stay holiday – but for a real taste of authentic Corfu life, take a daytrip to the nearby villages of Pentati, Kato Garouna and Sinarades. All three are just a short drive from Aghios Gordios and offer their own unique attractions. For the most inspiring views, make your way up to Pentati. This traditional fishing village sits 200 metres above the sea and overlooks the Ortholithi rock.
Visiting Corfu Town
You can reach Corfu Town by bus, taxi or car in under an hour. Start the day by visiting the Palace of St Michael and St George, before you embark on a tour of the city’s museums. See inside the 16th-century Church of Aghios Spyridon, which, in a silver casket, houses an ancient relic of Corfu's patron saint, St Spyridon. Bring your daytrip to a close with a traditional Greek meal, then return to Aghios Gordios and watch the sun set over the water.
