Greece Ionian Explorer Itinerary

Gouvia, Corfu

Our Corfu itinerary departs from Gouvia Marina, fully equipped with a swimming pool, attractive tavernas and supermarkets, perfectly situated for the start of your weeklong adventure. Nearby, the UNESCO listed old town of Corfu is a charming reminder of the colonial history of this island, complete with winding cobbled streets, ancient stone walls and pastel window shutters.

Kalami Bay

We’ll ease you into your holiday by sailing into the tranquil waters of Kalami Bay on the North East coast of Corfu. Enjoy the afternoon paddle boarding around the crystal-clear water of the Adriatic Sea, watching the breathtaking sunset and sampling traditional Greek cuisine in one of our favourite seafront restaurants.

Sivota Mourtos

With generous rainfall throughout the winter, the Ionian is a lush, verdant paradise featuring endless olive groves, pine forests and crystal-clear waters with sparkling white beaches. Just off the coast of Sivota town you can find blue lagoons, a great option for a breath-taking afternoon swim stop. The west facing main village offers an idyllic tavern-lined promenade and a stunning sunset.

Parga

Parga has been described as the most beautiful village in the Ionian, with two crystal clear bays either side of the main town and a Venetian castle forming an impressive backdrop. With numerous beach side cafes and a variety of water sports the large bay west of town this is the ideal spot to drop anchor and laze away the afternoon, before making your way to town for a traditional Greek feast.

Gaios, Paxos

Until recently Paxos was best known for its excellent olive oil, rumoured to be one of the top varieties in the world. The beauty of this idyllic island lies in the secluded coves and beaches that have escaped the attention of the tourist crowds – with exploration via bicycle or scooter the best way to discover these hidden gems. Relying on the local fishing boats in the harbour for the catch of the day, the taverna’s dish up fresh seafood, cooked to perfection in the traditional style.

Antipaxos

A true hidden gem, the tiny island of Antipaxos will be a once in a lifetime experience. Explore the white beaches and shallow waters by day, and anchor under the stars at night to admire the sparkling night sky from the deck of your yacht.

Lakka, Paxos

Studded with secluded bays and sea caves, this part of Paxos Island is an explorer’s dream. Lakka is home to a small but vibrant village, with the shallow waters known as a diving hot spot for those keen to discover the underwater marvels of the Ionian Sea.
