Ionian Islands

The Ionian Islands are the brightest green spots on the Greek color palette due to the temperate climate, the variety of olive groves and cypresses and the mountains filled with trees. 

Each island has its own landscape and history and there is something for everyone: adventurers, gourmets, culture lovers and sunbathers.

Sailing those Greek islands aboard a catamaran is an unforgettable experience!


Corfù (Kérkyra)

Often remembered as the idyllic island that welcomed Odysseus after the shipwreck, Corfù provides the same loving welcome to its tourists.


Corfu Town, the island’s capital, is a great starting point for exploring the stunning island of Corfu. The name “Corfu” means “tops” and comes from the fact that the city is situated between two hills on which two impressive fortresses were constructed to repel the ambushes of the Ottomans. The Old Town of Corfu has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and features stunning neoclassical structures such as the Palace of St. Michael and St. George, Liston Arcade, Reading Society, and Catholic Cathedral. The town also offers plenty of opportunities for visitors to explore museums, stroll along the renowned Liston promenade, and get lost in the little cobblestone alleyways known as “kandounia.”

When it comes to beaches, Corfu has no shortage of options. The lovely village of Paleokastritsa, which lies 23 kilometers northwest of Corfu Town, is undoubtedly the most well-known on the island of Corfu. The term “Paleokastritsa” literally translates to “ancient fortress,” attesting to the presence of a fortification on the rocky cave where the Virgin Monastery now sits.

Another must-see beach is the Canal d’Amour, where you can swim along a natural waterway formed by the smooth rocks. In the meanwhile, the nearby Sidari offers breathtaking sand beaches with sandstone formations.

Kerasia Beach is the perfect destination for those who enjoy nature and wish to relax away from crowded places. It mixes the pristine waters, lush green scenery, and stunning coves that make it the perfect vacation spot in the summer.

Agios Georgios Beach, with its Blue Flag recognition, is made up of big, sparkly pebbles and soft sand, and offers plenty of umbrellas and sun loungers for visitors to enjoy.

In summary, Corfu offers a perfect blend of history, culture, and natural beauty. Whether you’re interested in exploring the Old Town or lounging on the island’s stunning beaches, there’s something for everyone on this charming island.

The landscape of Lefkada blends both idyllic and rough scenery, welcoming the tourist to roam the past of the Ionian Islands while rewarding every corner with the discovery of exciting secrets. 

This sea area is considered ideal for boat rides and sailing due to the safe navigation it provides and the great variety of sheltered moorings in picturesque bays, harbors and quiet beaches. 

The inhabited islands are Meganissi, Kalamos and Kastos while Madouri, Skorpios, Atokos are privately owned. The rest of the islands are small and uninhabited. The coasts of this area are dotted with a great number of underwater and sea caves, which form an ideal habitat for seals.

Lefkada offers visitors wonderful beachfront towns like Nidri and Agios Nikitas in addition to its beaches. Additionally, there are lots of naturally stunning locations, such as the Dimosari waterfalls, wonderful food, and a ton of fun things to do!

Some reasons we love Lefkada:

Waterfalls of Nydri

The path that leads to the river on foot along the pine tree silhouette is beautiful. The seaside town of Nydri is close to the Dimossari Waterfalls. A trip to this charming Lefkada town and the Dimossari waterfalls are ideal together.

– Monastery of Faneromeni

The most significant sacred site on the island of Lefkada is the Monastery of Panagia Faneromeni. This monastery, which is perched on a hill above the town, offers stunning views of the city, the northern part of the island, and the opposing shores of the mainland.

The surrounding area is covered in lush greenery, providing one of the most picturesque settings on earth.


Kastos, an Ionian Island refuge just a few kilometers southeast of Meganisi, is gifted with gorgeous beaches, tranquility, and a pleasingly simple way of life.

Only about 50 people live permanently in Kastos, a tiny jewel that is only 8 km from north to south and less than 1 km from east to west. 

Due to its small size and unspoiled beauty, it is the perfect vacation spot for anyone wishing to get away from it all. The east is dotted with a variety of small sandy-pebbly beaches and paradisiacal bays with transparent, electric blue waters, in contrast to the west’s predominantly rocky, element-sculpted coastline.

Reasons we love Kastos:
