Ionian islands: yacht charters

Yacht charters - islands in the Ionian

The Inland Sea (the tranquil waters between Ithaca, Kefalonia, Lefkas and the mainland of Greece) is most suitable for flotilla sailing and other types of bareboat yacht charters due to the agreeable sailing conditions that allow even the most inexperienced sailors to skipper the yacht themselves.

This also makes the Inland Sea one of the busiest sailing areas in Greece, even before and after August, with lots of amenities, provisions, tavernas, restaurants and shops everywhere.

The majority of yacht charter firms and companies have their bases in Lefkas (Nidri) and Corfu (Gouvia), few offer yacht charters out of Preveza or elsewhere, so starting further south (Zakynthos for instance) is always a bit of a challenge. This means that the beautiful Peloponnese coast that include ports like Katakolon (Olympia), Kyparissia, Marathopoli, Pylos, Methoni, Koroni, Kalamata, Limeni, Mezapos, Porto Kagio, Gytheio, Plitra are out of reach if not on a 3 week or longer cruise.
Not only the Ionian islands are a treat, the ancient coastline of the Peloponnese is well worth the extra efforts getting there.
