Greece – Ionian Islands
The setting of the great Homeric epic poems is also an amazing setting for a yacht charter voyage. The islands of the Ionian sea are perfectly placed for hopping between them on a yacht, and the natural landscapes are the actual stuff of legends.
DAY ONE: Corfu
This popular island filled with appealing little villages and sandy beaches has long been a favored stopover. The cross-cultural architecture that reminds visitors of Corfu’s unique history adds a special flavor to this stop.
DAY TWO: Corfu To Paxos
The jaw-dropping Emritus cliffs of Paxos are an epic backdrop to the island’s beaches and coves. Take a tender and explore the natural beauty of the island.
DAY THREE: Paxos To Anti-Paxos To Levkas
This is the ideal stop for watersports enthusiasts, and makes an excellent stopover on the way from Paxos to Levkas for the night’s anchor.
DAY FOUR: Levkas To Meganissi To Levkas
With deep coves and turquoise bays, this is another water sports paradise that’s an easy day trip from the harbor at Levkas. And the surrounding cliffs topped by wooded hills make it all the more spectacular.
DAY FIVE: Levkas To Ithaca
Go deep into the world of Homer in the cave of the Nymphs, the fountain of Arethusa, and the palace of Odysseus. Follow it up with a dinner at one of the many tavernas that line the harbor.
DAY SIX: Ithaca To Cephalonia
The northernmost port in this island chain is Fiskardos, a fishing village that is also a haven for megayachts. Myrtos and its sapphirel blue waters surrounded by towering cliffs is also a must-see and ideal for an afternoon visit.
DAY SEVEN: Cephalonia To Zakinthos
Conclude the charter journey with a visit to the southernmost island in the archipelago and its olive groves, orchards, beaches, and vineyards. Top it all off with a trip to the therapeutic sulfur springs at Keri.
