A sailing getaway you'll never forget - Visit Greece by yacht

Fall Head Over Heels for Picturesque Parga

Described as the Ionian’s most beautiful village, Parga’s Venetian castle and dual sparkling turquoise bays are certainly very easy on the eye. Frequent beachside cafés, try your hand at a variety of water sports or stroll through the town’s charming streets in search of a delicious traditional Greek feast.

Explore the Secluded Coves of Gaios

Situated on the idyllic island of Paxos, many of Gaios’s secluded beaches and coves are best discovered by scooter or bicycle. Spend a few hours relaxing in your own slice of island seclusion, before making your way to the harbour for a delicious evening meal in a traditional taverna.

The Delightful Island of Antipaxos is Like No Other

Small but perfectly formed, Antipaxos is blessed with glorious white sandy beaches and warm shallow waters that you will adore exploring. After sunset, marvel as a blanket of softly twinkling stars appears overhead and let the gentle lunar light illuminate a romantic evening meal aboard your luxurious yacht.

Admire Kassiopi’s Delightful Horseshoe Bay on your Sailing Getaway

With dreamy waters and laid back ambience, Kassiopi’s enduring popularity is very easily understood. As the sun sets, allow the lights of the nearby town beckon you to its charming streets filled with restaurants and family-run tavernas, each with an array of flavourful dishes which make the most of the catch of the day and other locally sourced ingredients.

Let the Loveliness of Lakka Sweep You Off Your Feet

Lakka entices divers from all over the world to its temptingly warm, calm and ultra-clear waters, but conditions are also ideal for a spot of swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, and windsurfing. Surrounded by olive groves, taking to the water is one of the best ways to really soak in and enjoy such exceptionally spectacular and unforgettable surroundings.
