Sailing the Ionian Waters
Greece has long been a favourite holiday destination for many. Sailing to some of the most beautiful destinations in the North and South Ionian is a wonderful way to take in the fabulous sights that the Greek islands have to offer. The North Ionian area covers Corfu, Paxos and Anti Paxos, whilst the South Ionian takes in the breathtaking scenery of islands such as Lefkas, Meganisi, Kastos and many more.
The flexibility of this type of sailing holiday means that you can anchor at the various islands for as long as you like, which also means that if you fall in love with one particular island, you can spend more time exploring and experiencing the local delights before moving on. The islands are relatively close to one another, which means you can decide how long to be at sea, adding a level of flexibility to your holiday itinerary. Experiencing local Greek cuisine and culture, while relaxing in the unspoilt beauty that many of the islands are renowned for, is a wonderful way to become immersed in the Greek lifestyle. You will also have the opportunity to visit some fantastic Greek taverns for a fun night out.
Exploring the Ionian islands by boat offers a unique perspective on this stunning part of the world, that you simply cannot get from a standard holiday. The ever-changing landscape is quite simply breathtaking, as your yacht meanders from one island to the next. Enjoy swimming in gorgeous crystal clear bays, or lazing on one of the quiet and unspoilt beaches that seem to pop up at every twist and turn. Alternatively, simply soak up the rays on board your yacht. This holiday can be as action-packed as you want it to be, which makes it the ideal holiday for a group of friends and family.
The Greek islands will always be a favourite holiday destination, and exploring the Ionian islands by boat means you almost have a piece of this stunning world to yourself. Unspoilt bays and beaches and quiet villages offer peace and tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the larger and busier towns. You will still have the opportunity to soak up some nightlife and sample some truly delicious cuisine from one of the restaurants or taverns that you will undoubtedly come across on your Ionian adventure. This part of the world has managed to retain its charm, and parts of it feel as though you are stepping back in time.
