on selected yachts in May 2018
The islands have been inhabited as far back as the Bronze Age. The mixture of different civilizations and cultures is harmoniously welded together into one piece that is undoubtedly Greek, in a complex of islands where the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean can be explored. With stunning scenery, protected waters, shorter passages and lighter winds, you are sure to enjoy a relaxed sailing holiday. From Corfu visit the beautiful islands of Paxos and Anti-Paxos with their pretty fishing villages and waterside tavernas. From Lefkas explore the southern Ionian including arguably the prettiest harbor in the Ionian at Fiskardo on Cephalonia, Meganissi, Ithaca and the Onassis owned private island of Skorpios.
