St George is perhaps the island’s most popular beach, only 5 minutes away from the city centre and 10 minutes away from the port.
During the day it is warm, transparent, shallow waters are perfect for paddling, snorkeling and other child-friendly activities, while in the evening is ideal for a quiet romantic dinner on the fine sand.
The 1 km long beach wins the international quality Blue Flag award each year, complying with 33 criteria, such as water quality, safety services and environmental management. It is featured among the best beaches of the world and the best beach for families in Europe, by The Guardian.
Services include beach umbrellas, sunbeds and beach lockers. Various shops offer a wide variety of goods. The southern edge of the beach is dominated by windsurfers, as it is considered to be the one of the island’s best surfer spots.
