Corfu Sailing Guide
An island for both a vivid nightlife but also for relaxation and peace of mind!
Corfu is the second largest island and the capital of the Region of Ionian islands. Famous for its local cuisine, the island can cater both for those who look for a vivid nightlife but also for relaxation and peace of mind. The visitor will enjoy the natural beauty of the inner island and the hospitality of its residents is bound to enchant its visitors. Corfu is also a starting point for bareboat or skippered charter yachts.
Located in the east part of the island, just 8 km far from the airport and about 10 km from the capital of the island lies the holiday resort of Gouvia. The ancient Venetian harbor and arsenal have been transformed as years passed by to the main marina of Corfu.
Enlisted as a World Heritage Site, the Old town of Corfu and the knights of the past invite you to submerge in its history emerging from every alley and building as well as its three forts dating back to the Venetian period. Sail there with your chartered monohull or catamaran from IonionSails and you will feel like entering a time capsule!
On the eastern coast of Corfu you will find the traditional fishing village of Petritis. Surrounded by a lucid green forest, the village has maintained its identity over the years escaping mass tourism.
Due to its central naval position, Kassiopi prevailed through centuries offering its inhabitants wealth through trade. Today, the charming town with its picturesque port and central square welcomes the bareboat or skippered sailing yachts who want to enjoy both history and luxury.
