Ionian Islands: Emerald waters and favourable winds
Scattered along the western coastline of Greece, the lavishly verdant Ionian Islands have a very unique character brought on by the passing of the Venetians, French and British. Covered by pine forests, olive groves and vineyards these islands are a paradise on earth with their white sand beaches and emerald waters.
World-renowned Corfu has been a favourite holiday destination for centuries and for a good reason. Medieval castles, palaces, rich culture, breath-taking landscapes and endless beaches will capture your heart and imagination.
Lefkada will excite you with the award winning, stunning beaches. Kefalonia will charm you with the lovely villages and the million years old caves. Paxi and Antipaxi are a dream come true on earth with the sapphire waters. You should not miss Ithaca, home to Homer’s Odysseus, with its tranquil villages. Zakynthos became famous for its “shipwreck” beach but is also home to Greece’s first marine park. Every spring the rare caretta caretta sea turtles, an endangered species, lay their eggs in the sandy beaches of Zakynthos.
