Corfu Sailing Holidays

Spending your sailing holidays in Greece means exploring old mythological places - Corfu Island is known from mythology as Scheria, Odysseus’s last stop before his return to Ithaca. You can witness some of the history in Kassiopi Village before having fun at popular beaches like Marathiá, Gardénos or Íssos.

Visiting Corfu is not complete without walking around some of its olive groves. Made up of trees that are hundreds of years old, these groves are the reason this island is one of the greenest islands in Greece! Sail around Corfu and spend a wonderful sailing holiday getting to know its nature, history and culture.

Yacht Charter in Corfu

Charter a yacht on Corfu Island and start your Ionian sailing holidays. This island is part of the Ionian Islands archipelago on the west coast of Greece. From here, you can sail to some other Greek islands such as Lefkada, Ithaca and Zakynthos. Despite being a popular starting point for sailing the Greek islands, Corfu is mostly rural and less crowded in comparison to some other islands. There is plenty for you to do here. For example, Corfu is one of the most fortified places in Europe. Hop off your sailing yacht and walk around the Old Fortress in Corfu Town. Its old core is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. Enjoy a romantic stroll along its narrow streets and take a photo on Spianada Square, the largest square in Greece.
