Set sail on your sailing adventure around cosmopolitan Corfu, Homer’s ‘beautiful and rich land’. Starting out from Gouvia, just 5 minutes from Corfu Town, this idyllic destination is widely considered a major link between the Adriatic and the Mediterranean.
Strike out for open-water sailing or Greek island hopping, stroll Corfu’s Old Town or explore Gaios’ Venetian architecture. Your North Ionian yacht charter out of Corfu lets you enjoy ancient history, stunning waters and scenic ports along Greece’s beautiful northern shores.
The South Ionian and Lefkada features prominently in Greek mythology, and it’s easy to see why. The island’s spectacular coastline boasts white sand beaches, sheltered coves and towering cliffs in abundance. Today, Lefkas represents the perfect getaway for those tired of the hustle and bustle of city life. Explore the imposing ruins of the mediaeval Santa Maura Fortress, indulge in some of the watersports the island is famous for or simply relax on the quiet beaches.
Explore Greece’s Ionian Coast and many of the other Heptanese Islands from our base on Lefkas, including Kefalonia, Ithaca and the numerous tiny islets for which Greece is rightly known. You’ll take in the culture, cuisine and nightlife of the Ionian Coast and relax in the sun with beautiful Grecian scenery as your backdrop. Lefkas is the launchpad for your perfect island-hopping getaway.
The most balanced of any sailing ground in Greece, the Saronics offer a fantastic mix of diverse islands, character harbours, archaeological treasures, gentle winds, short-hop sailing and quayside bars and tavernas. Perhaps counterintuitively, those on a two week charter (or those wanting to sail longer legs away from Athens) will discover the quietest sailing ground in Greece.
By strict definition, the Saronic Islands include just four islands: Salamis, Aegina, Poros and Angistri. However, we include the islands of Hydra, Dokos and Spetses in the mix – collectively the ‘Argosaronic Islands’. Whatever you do though, don’t forget the lovely mainland harbours as well, including Epidavros, Ermioni, Vathi and a host of lovely villages stretching down the long Peloponnese peninsula from Nafplion to the incredible town of Monemvasia.
Blue domed roofs, sandy beaches and winds with a bite, the Cyclades Islands are stunning. See a postcard of Greece and it will inevitably boast the blue domed roofs of Santorini or the iconic windmills of Mykonos. Gorgeous sandy beaches, wonderful traditional architecture, stunning landscapes & fascinating ancient history litter its many gorgeous & idyllic islands.
While Mykonos and Santorini grab the tourist limelight (and their numbers), there are over 200 islands in the Cyclades. The beauty of a sailing holiday to this area is the ability to cast away from the ‘beaten track’ and visit undiscovered beauties such as Folegandros, Sifnos, Serifos and Kythnos. Picture relaxed gentle tourism that tends to stand back and observe the sights and sounds, rather than the mass sprawl that imposes itself on the busy islands.
