Example Itinerary – Day 1
View across Kalami Bay in Corfu
This ten-day charter takes in a large part of the string of picturesque Ionian islands with clear waters, stunning scenery and a multitude of private coves to anchor off and relax in.
You start your journey a mere 7km from Corfu Airport in Gouvia Marina where the boat and her crew will be eagerly awaiting your arrival. You can explore the Old Town of Corfu, before the afternoon sail to Kalami Bay. Once there, you will drop anchor for the evening in the serene horseshoe bay, and slip into the crystal blue waters for an afternoon swim or step ashore and enjoy an afternoon stroll along the scenic coastal walks.
Paxos – view of Lakka village
After breakfast on your second day, the yacht will head for the peaceful island of Paxo, starting at the northern tip in Lakka, a traditional Greek fishing village, heading around the coast to the port of Gaois for the evening. Although Gaois is the capital, it is small and rich in Venetian architecture, with a pedestrianised square on the seafront dotted with restaurants serving high-quality Greek cuisine.
After a relaxing morning, you cruise further south towards the small island of Antipaxo populated with just 64 inhabitants. Unlike the larger Paxo island, Antipaxo has white sandy beaches on this virtually untouched gem in the Ionian Sea.
This tiny island is a combination of rugged cliffs and private coves that await you after your lunch at the Bella Vista Taverna overlooking the beach.
Spartochori port harbour – Meganisi Island near Lefkada Greece
Lefkada is the next destination on your charter, heading for the fishing village of Agios Nikitas with stunning turquoise bays that can only be accessed by sea.
Later in the day, you take the Lefkas channel south towards Nidri for a more lively location with numerous bars and restaurants catering to all tastes.
Nidri bay, Lefkada
The tiny ‘big island’ of Meganisi, with it’s giant sea cave of Papanikolis is the next stop after a leisurely breakfast. There you can take many coastal paths and trails that lead you to the more remote parts of the island with its wild green forests, which lends itself to stunning views of the surrounding area.
Fishing boats in port of Kioni on Ithaka island
The next day, you island hop to Ithaka, the tranquil island full of olive groves and picturesque villages, steeped in history and Greek mythology. Here you can hike up Mount Nitiro or relax and enjoy the offerings of waterfront tavernas.
Melissa Cave, Kefalonia
After an early start, your yacht will take you to the Captain Corelli’s Mandolin backdrop, Kefalonia. Before heading to the superyacht mecca of Fiskardo, the colourful fishing village, you can seek out the island’s highlight – the Melissa Cave. This subterranean lake, with two chambers that wrap around a central island is best viewed around lunchtime when sun rays fill the cave and light up the blue waters below.
Beautiful Myrtos beach on Kefalonia
Travelling west around the peninsula of Kefalonia, your cruise will take you to Myrtos beach where you can enjoy a relaxing time onboard, walk the white sandy shore or indulge in the myriad of water sports equipment available onboard your yacht.
Later in the day the yacht will head back around the headland to find a secluded bay for another peaceful night at anchor.
Day 9 – 10
Shipwreck Beach on the coast of Zakynthos
For the last two days of your charter, you will head to Zakynthos, which continues the theme of dramatic coastlines, beautiful villages and enticing bays. You can explore the famous shipwreck beach surrounded by sheer cliffs and keep an eye out for loggerhead turtles as you swim or kayak through the turquoise waters.
On your final day, you will disembark for your flight home from Zakynthos International Airport, feeling relaxed and refreshed from your voyage.
