In central Corfu, Agios Gordios (also referred to as Agios Gordi or Ai Gordhis) stands out as an increasingly popular beach and resort, only 45 minutes westwards from Corfu Town, a distance easily covered by the famed green buses which depart even 7 times a day – in high season – from Corfu Town to the western part of the island. The main highlight of this small Greek village refers to the namesake beach, a typical stretch of sand and pebbles replete with lounge chairs and umbrellas, and bordered by shallow waters, which is why the beach as such is highly frequented by families.
The C-shaped beach of Agios Gordios opens to a cove which offers stunning seascapes, its extremities being represented by two headlands. The background of the beach consists of olive groves dotted with villas for rent – ranging from 1 to 3 key villas – putting forward accommodation solutions for the tourists visiting the region. Other lodging services are yielded by the one hotel which towers the entire beach – the Pink Palace Hotel – and by the other few hotels in the resort, but one should always want to check the availability of apartments for rent: Mazis Apartments, Sea Breeze Apartments and Irene Apartments are but mere examples of the plethora of sleeping venues in Agios Gordios.
An appealing opportunity of spending leisure time is given by the Calypso Diving Center, an occasion scuba diving enthusiasts at least should not miss. What is essential for Agios Gordios is this small locality has managed to maintain its typical Greek fishing village charm in spite of tourism development, though some tend to be more critical of this phenomenon and say Agios Gordios does not comply anymore with the idea of picturesque secluded village.
The Kondokali Beach is another sunbathing venue awarded the blue flag. It is, again, located in the eastern side of Corfu, only 6 kilometers from Corfu Tow
As far as northwestern beaches go, the Sidari Beach, part of the homonymous resort, is said to be the most impressive of all, which is why it is so highly frequented.
The display made available by the Museum of Ceramic Art speaks about what is characteristic of Corfu in terms of ceramic art.
