Your Sailing Area
Nicknamed the Emerald Island, Corfu is the greenest of all the Ionian islands with mountains covered in trees, acres of vineyards and over 2 million olive trees. Beginning your sailing holiday in Corfu means after a quick flight from the UK, you’ll be relaxing in azure blue waters in no time. This luxury sailing adventure on our beautiful Kairos is perfect for sitting back, taking in the views and soaking up that Mediterranean sunshine while the professional crew sail you from Corfu to explore the island cluster of Paxi, just South of Corfu.
Explore the lesser trodden gems of the Corfu coastline before heading for the island cluster of Paxi. Paxi is made up of the largest island of Paxos and the smaller, Antipaxos famous for its wine and two of the finest sand beaches in the Ionian Sea. Perfect for an afternoon exploring ashore, enjoying local Greek cuisine in a waterside Tavernas before cooling off in crystal clear waters.
All the islands, along with Ithaca and Lefkada, still retain that true Grecian charm with travellers only accessing the island by water which has stopped the main harbour towns becoming overdeveloped by the tourist trade. Ithaca is home to the myth and legend of Odysseus with ancient ruins nestled in hilly mountains lined with olive groves. The island is not so much a beach going destination as the others, but it has an abundance of beautiful small coves, perfect if you’re arriving by boat and fancy some snorkelling! With delightful harbour villages filled with traditional tavernas on the East sides of the islands, the West coasts have been left untouched. Lefkada offers stunning turquoise blue waters framed by sheer limestone white cliffs with centuries-old olive groves among rolling hills and unspoilt coves. Perhaps even anchor at the deserted island of Arkoudi, with only goats as residents!
