The Ionian islands are the most popular sail cruising ground in Europe, if not the world.  They’re famous for their outstanding weather and stunning scenery, as well as their reliable winds during the summer sailing season.

Sailing from Ionian

The Ionian islands cover a distance of around 300 nM from top to bottom, so it would be impossible to cover them all in a weeklong charter – which means you’ll have to choose between the North Ionian - encompassing historic Corfu, picture-postcard Parga, and the stunning Paxi islands – or the South Ionian - which includes the enchanting Kefalonia (the most beautiful island in the world?), splendid beaches of Meganissi and Sivota, and Ithaki, legendary home of the mythical Odysseus (the Sirens were also based in the Ionian in ancient Greek mythology, but sadly they’re rarely seen today).

To explore the North Ionian, you can charter bareboat or skippered yachts or catamarans from our bases in Corfu, Preveza and Lefkas (arriving at Corfu or Preveza airport). 

For the South Ionian, you’re best off heading to Preveza, Lefkas or Kefalonia (arriving at Preveza or Kefalonia airport). 

The biggest bases (and the best value prices) are Lefkas and Corfu.
