You will not be able to resist the allure of Ithaki. The mythical home of Homer’s Odysseus cannot but ooze the romance and mystique of all things Grecian. Located in the Ionian Sea, off the northeast coast of Kefalonia and to the west of continental Greece, Ithaki is characterised by lush vegetation, intriguing bays and coves and a collection of traditional villages.
As the biggest of the Ionian islands, Kefalonia is a must-see Greek holiday destination. Characterised by an indented coastline, limestone cliffs, sandy coves and strips of white sand, Kefalonia is tailormade for an idyllic yachting vacation itinerary. Many beaches are only accessible only by yacht. There is no shortage of convenient and scenic anchorages, which will open the door to the charms of this Ionian paradise.
Zakynthos is also one of the two Greek islands (Rhodes is the other one) with the highest, year-round duration of sunshine. The third largest island in the Ioanian Sea is only ever described in superlatives. Its famed beach, Navagio, is one of the most photographed spots in the Mediterranean. It is easily accessible by yacht whereas larger passenger liners are able enter the bay but cannot approach the beach due to weight restrictions.
