Corfu is reminiscent of a James Bond-style island, with its glamorous nightlife and natural beauty. Everything about Corfu is heavenly. Its location in the northern part of the Ionian Sea, in close proximity to the Adriatic Sea, makes it a favoured yachting destination.


Lying in the Ionian Sea and connected to the mainland by a causeway, Lefkada is an unspoilt Mediterranean paradise. While most of the tourist action occurs on the east coast, dropping anchor off the dramatic west coast will afford you privacy and the luxury of having the azure waters to yourself.


Paxi is actually a group of small islands, with Paxi and Antipaxi the largest. While the island has grown as a tourist destination, Paxi has a serene and authentic atmosphere. The harbours at Gaios and Lakka, with moorings along cypress-lined inlets, are arguably the prettiest in Greece.


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.
