Exploring Eptanisa islands: Let the set of the sails create your holiday
The Ionian cruise offers endless possibilities that can be easily achieved once you got your very own yacht that will quickly become your home on the waters. Still, deciding which island to take a cruise on can be quite hard, since all the seven islands of Corfu, Paxos, Zakynthos, Ithaka, Lefkada, Kythira and Cephalonia are all inviting and equally worth visiting.
Set sail from the Island of Corfu, the Gouvia Marina anchorage point and sailing to the island of Paxos set at around 35 nautical miles. This is an excellent opportunity to catch the Greek atmosphere in an idyllic setting surrounded by deep blue waters, lots of green areas, wonderful sandy beaches surrounded by olive and pinewoods – a picture perfect, right?
Sailing in Corfu, Paxos and Antipaxos: The islands of endless possibilities
This excellent sailing hub may take you a day or a few weeks, depending on your wishes. However, the island of Corfu itself has unlimited gems excellent for exploring. Although Corfu is a famous destination for sailors and tourists from all over the world, much of the island is still unspoiled by crowds and offers you the opportunity to take a close look at the beautiful ancient and medieval sites, numerous ports, secluded anchorage points where you can enjoy the magnificent scenery at the open sea and the traditional villages surrounding it.
A short sail on your yacht will take you to the island of Paxos (or Paxi, if you prefer the local name); where you can take advantage of the most popular beaches in this region such as the Mondodenri beach, Kipiadibeach, and the famous Tripitos arch – all worth visiting. The population of about 2300 residents makes this island intimate and attractive because of the most famous olive oil made in Greece. A short sailing trip of around 3 nautical miles south of Paxos will take you to the secluded Antipaxos island – inhabited only during the summer. The crystal-clear turquoise waters and the breathtaking beaches of Voutumi and Vrika will leave you speechless.
Take your time enjoying your anchoring here, as the magic that surrounds these two islands will fill up your spirits and open your mind to new perspectives and ideas for the next sailing stops. Let your imagination free and this Greek sailing adventure will shortly become your most treasured experience that you will recall for a long, long time.
Wishing you calm winds and the lots of fun sailing!
