Sailing Greek islands - Visit incredible places

1) Explore Corfu’s UNESCO Protected Old Town of Kerkyra

Infused with Venetian elegance, the winding streets of Kerkyra town are peppered with lively bars, beautiful boutiques, museums, more than 30 magnificent churches, and some of the finest restaurants in the Ionian islands.

2) The Blue Lagoon of Sivota Mourtos

An ideal afternoon swim spot, the crystal-clear waters of the Blue Lagoon look almost too perfect to be real. The warm, calm waters are a pleasure to swim in and your spectacular surroundings are sure to make your time here simply unforgettable.

3) Admire Kassiopi’s Hilltop Venetian Castle

Nestled on the verdant hilltop, the short walk from the seafront to Kassiopi’s Venetian castle is extremely rewarding. With spectacular views over renowned horseshoe bay and the aquamarine waters below, time spent in Kassiopi is always time very well spent indeed.

4) Lounge on Beautiful Beaches in Antipaxos on your Sailing Getaway

The soft white sandy beaches of Antipaxos are perfect places to soak in the sunshine and the shallow waters are beautifully alluring. Enjoy a spectacular sunset before partaking in a spot of stargazing as you reflect on another wonderful day in the Ionian islands.

5) Fall in Love with Lakka’s Sea Caves, Secluded Bays and Underwater Marvels

Lakka’s coastline is every explorer’s dream. Snorkel in sea caves or grab your diving equipment to delve a little deeper and uncover the underwater marvels of Greece’s Ionian Sea.

6) Discover the Beauty of the Dual Crystal Clear Bays of Parga

Parga’s twin bays have been delighting visitors for centuries. Perfectly framing what is often called the Ionian’s most beautiful village, the shimmering turquoise waters emphasise the eclectic architecture of the main town and the resplendent Venetian castle beyond.

7) Uncover the Idyllic Beauty of Gaios

Discover hidden beaches and secluded coves before heading back to the harbour to enjoy a laid-back Greek feast, which always makes the most of the catch of the day and Paxos’s world-famous olive oil.
