The port village of Agios Georgios is small and cute and lies adorable beautifully in a protected bay (see picture on the first page). Despite its small size, you will find all facilities you need to get a successful "ease-off-holiday".

Here are five pensions, two tavernas, café, snack bar and mini market. And everything is within crawling distance. What more do you need? Well, a beach within crawling distance would be nice. Of course there iss one as well. The beach begins at Taverna Glaros and extends about a hundred metres along the bay. The beach consists mostly of small pebbles, in some places it is mixed with sand. The water is lovely!

The only downside is that there is almost no shade, some half-grown tamarisk trees is the only shade on offer. Sometimes it's a proper scramble for the trees, so if you want to be sure to get a place you have to be early. New trees will be planted, so within a few years, all the tourists will have their own tree. :-)

The best taverna is undoubtedly Taverna Glaros (or Seagull), run by Yannis and his super friendly wife Voula. You do not go here only for the delicious food and the familiar atmosphere, the relaxing views is a contributory cause too. You will probably be seated here for a long time, not to say for a very long time. Perhaps, it is not surprising since there is not so much else to do. Try their goat in the oven, it is superb. Fresh fish is another speciality. At Yannis, you can also buy bread, water, beer and wine.
