Sun-drenched Ionian cruising

Corfu is the northernmost of the seven Ionian Islands and the perfect starting point to explore the sun-drenched Ionian Sea. A mixture of sheltered coastal spots and more adventurous blue water stretches make Corfu an ideal destination for sailors of all abilities.

The famous Heptanese Islands are known for their relaxed culture and attractive scenery, excellent beaches and warm, clear waters. Corfu is home to a number of relaxing beaches and imposing castles, as well as numerous outlying islands and abundant native wildlife. A combination of sheltered coastal and exciting open water sailing lets you take in Paxos and Antipaxos, known for their wine and excellent beaches. 

Each Ionian Island offers panoramic views from high mountain peaks, sheltered bays and sandy beaches ideal for diving and snorkelling, delicious traditional food and drink and ancient history spanning the very earliest western civilisations. Meanwhile, north from Corfu is Albania and another distinct, varied coastline to explore.
