Corfu (or Kerkyra) is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea, located of the northwestern coast of Greece. Whilst it is only the second largest of the Ionian Islands, Corfu is probably one of the best known among holiday makers. However, there are many beautiful islands to visit in the Ionian sea. We also highly recommend visiting Zakynthos (Zante), home of the famous shipwreck beach at Navagio.
The Ionian islands enjoy a Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and plenty of sun. Many visitors choose to arrive via one of the 5 airports spread throughout the islands. You might base your ionian yacht vacation in the northern most island of Corfu. Here you can explore the many picturesque waterfront villages and traditional small towns by motor yacht or catamaran. Island hopping is easy and pleasurable in the Ionian Sea. Most islands are navigable by sight, and there are very few hazards such as tides and currents. In fact the Ionian sea is renowned for its near perfect sailing conditions with plenty of wind combining with calm, forgiving seas.
