Corfu is the 2nd largest of the Ionian Islands and has extraordinary geographical diversity including tall mountains and stunning sandy beaches. The island has a rich history going back to classical times and was one of the major footholds in defending Europe from the Ottoman invasions.
Sailing around Corfu will take you to charming little villages and towns, with safe harbors and beaches that are considered to be amongst the most beautiful in all of Greece.
Inter-island sails are short, and the sailing conditions are comfortable
Corfu is just under an hour’s flight from Athens and is one of the top cruising areas in the Mediterranean. There are also direct flights from Italy, Germany, France.
BEST TIME OF YEAR TO SAIL
April to October gives the best sailing conditions with blue skies and warm temperatures, calm seas and lighter winds, though note that it’s busier and more expensive in July and August.
