Day 1

place Welcome to Greece!

Sitting in the North of the Ionian Sea, Corfu is strongly influenced by the Venetians, the French and the English with cosmopolitan and multicultural charm. You will notice all these elements as you make your way from the airport, through to the Gouvia Marina, where your sailboat awaits. Check-in at 17:00 and prepare yourself for a trip of Odyssean proportions, but before that, head out to town for an evening of exploration of the authentic Greek cuisine.

Day 2

place Sailing to Lakka Bay in Paxos

Paxos is truly beautiful, with scenery that makes it an artist's paradise, with clear aquamarine sea and pebble beaches that have to be seen to be believed. Lakka on the northern side of Paxos is a gorgeous horseshoe-shaped bay which is flanked by hills covered with olive and cypress trees. It is almost completely sheltered from the open sea and offers excellent swimming and watersport activities. There are also great mooring spots giving you the chance to disembark and explore the tavernas, cafés, and bars that offer fresh authentic Greek dishes for you to sample!

Day 3

place Sailing to Antipaxos and Mongonissi Beach

Antipaxos is all about peace and quiet and glorious beaches, such as those at Vrika and Voutoumi, famous for their transparent waters and breathtaking settings. Boats bring in day-trippers once a day from nearby Paxos, but once the last boat has left in the late afternoon, total tranquillity falls on the island, the sun sets and the stars and moon shine brightly in the night skies. This gives you a chance seldom experienced by many as you cruise around the isolated bays and beach of this island. Mongonissi is situated just south of Paxos. What makes this beach so unique is the complexity of its landscape. It combines the wildness of a rocky scenery that one finds in the west coast together with the lush vegetation that surrounds the east coast. Adding to that, the deep blue sea, sandy beaches, and impressive caves compose an ideal scenery that shouldn't be missed!

Day 4

place Sailing to Gaios Port

Gaios is a charming port town that spreads itself along the waterfront. You can enter Gaios from a northerly or southerly direction passing two small islands, the first at the mouth of Gaios harbor is called Panagia (Virgin Mary) on which there is a splendid white monastery. Since it offers excellent mooring, you will be staying here for the evening in order to explore the town. The town of Gaios offers wholesome walking experiences, great taverns offering fresh local produce as well as several small bars and ouzerias which offer spirits and beverages. Take the time to meet the locals and experience Greek hospitality at its finest!

Day 5

place Sailing to Parga

Parga is hands down the most popular holiday destination in Epirus! Stretching around a secluded bay that faces the Ionian sea, Parga has an island ambiance. This little town has a setting that reminds some of Dubrovnik in Croatia or Capri in Italy with colorful houses built on the slopes of a mountain, boasting a breathtaking view of the sea, exotic beaches, and natural surroundings. What’s not to love about Parga Greece.
