From Corfu via Lefkas to Kythira.
Next to the seven big Ionian islands Corfu, Paxos, Lefkas, Ithaca, Cephalonia and Zakynthos there are a lot of
little islands with picturesque villages, fishermens’ harbours, wonderful beaches and bays as well as a number of
uninhabited islands as the Dragoneras group off shore Astakos.
You can experience an unparalleled combination of sea and sun, dream islands and a charming coast area, antique and mediaeval monuments.

The ideal family area
There is nearly no point in the Ionian Sea which is farer than 30 sm from a shielded harbour. It is the area with ideal weather conditions for a recreative family sailing trip. In the summer time there is normally “Maistro”, a nice-weather-wind from north-west, aligned with solid high-pressure weather. It appears on late morning, doesn’t get stronger than 5 Beaufort and doze off with sunset. Unlike the “Meltemi” of the Aegean Sea the weather conditions in the Ionian Sea don’t cause agitation. The Ionian Islands are situated parallel to the continental coast and provide good cover leeward when the weather is uneasily – ideal for recreative sailing under the sun of Homer and the tracks of Odysseus.
