TWO WEEKS IONIAN SEA CABIN CHARTER
The great thing about sailing in Greece is that every island is different. Each has its individuality and makes it fascinating. The differences are both cultural and scenic. Many of our past clients who have sailed in the Caribbean or the Pacific say they find Greece more varied. The Ionian Sea is covered in evergreen pine forests. Trees overhang the quiet coves we sail into, providing perfect shade for midday picnics and siestas.
We will visit most of the following coastal places or islands, Ligia, Amoudia, Lichnos, Parga, Sivota, Plataria, Paxi and Antipaxi islands and Corfu. The whole area is unique with over 40 miles of sandy beaches, secluded coves, beautiful bays, turquoise waters and incredible archeological, historical and religious interest.
Our main base in the IONIAN SEA is located at Preveza, which is a coastal town with an island flair, built at the entrance of Amvrakikos Gulf located at the double delta of the rivers Louros and Arachthos along with the lagoon complex that has a rare ecosystem protected by the RAMSAR international treaty. Day trips could be organised by us on request, prior to embarkation or your disembarkation (fees apply). On these day trips you can have a very enjoyable time watching dolphins feeding and the glorious marine life of Amvrakikos and having a relaxing day on peaceful waters.
Also Preveza is a modern town, administrative, commercial, intellectual and tourist center of the prefecture. Beautiful, traditional buildings adorn the port and the historical center while the pedestrian walkways and cobblestone streets lined with popular taverns, cafès and bars creating a Greek island effect.
PAXOI - ANTIPAXOI
The tiny island of Paxoi is located south of Corfu, on the northern side of the Ionian Sea. This is a place with intense cosmopolitan style due to the many yachts that moor in its ports in summer. Paxoi island is mostly famous for the wonderful beaches with the exotic blue color.

Its rich multi-cultural heritage, its historic monuments, its stunning natural landscape, its crystal clear seas and its excellent weather all year round explain why Corfu is one of the most cosmopolitan Mediterranean destinations. Due to the successive dominations of the Venetians, the French and the British over the centuries, the island has primarily become part of the Western world.
