stretches from Corfu
in the North-west to Kithera island in the south-east, and indeed the Ionian borders to the Aegean
, the Cyclades
and the Argolic
and the whole south and western coasts of the Peloponnese
belongs to the Ionian Sea! Yacht charters
predominantly take place in the western part usually out of Lefkas or Corfu. Most yacht charter guides
agree that the Ionian can be divided into three different sections.
- The North Ionian (Corfu, Erikoussa, Paxos)
- The South Ionian (Lefkas, Meganisi, Ithaca, Kefalonia, Zakynthos)
- The East Ionian or Peloponnese coast (Katakolon, Kyparissia, Marathopoli, Pylos, Methoni, Koroni, Petalidi, Kalamata, Limeni, Mezapos, Porto Kagio, Gytheio, Plitra, Elafonisos, Voie (Neapoli), Kythira and finally cape Malea)
Since the east Ionian
makes for advanced sailing, the Ionian sailing guide to yacht charters
focusses on sailing holidays out of Lefkas and Corfu only. Besides Athens and the Saronic
it is the most popular venue!
