Believed to be named after a beautiful nymph, Korkyra, Poseidon’s love interest in Greek mythology, you can see why he wanted to name the island after her. Sail into Paleokastritsa to admire the backdrop of the lush greenery – the most prized beauty spot makes it a perfect stop off for a day trip.
Be sure to visit Navagio beach if you stop off in Zakynthos. Accessible only by boat, it is surrounded by turquoise waters. Wander to the observation deck to see the shipwreck that the bay was named after. Marathonissi in the south is also worth a visit for a taste of Tropicana.
For an experience you won’t forget, drop into the Melissani caves in Kephalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands. Be sure to check out Ithaca – where the Greek epic poet, Homer, based the tale of Odysseus. Embrace the beauty and culture before climbing aboard your yacht and dropping anchor.
Whether you’re an experienced seamen or fancy learning a new skill, the Greek Ionians are a perfect spot that will not only be a picturesque back drop but will also provide the beauty, culture and adventure for any holiday goer.
