Sailing in the IONIAN
There are large charter fleets dotted all over the Ionian, notably in Nidri, Levkas, Preveza, and Corfou. The last two have airports. Transfers to the other two and elsewhere in the area are easy and quick. If you are heading for the south, choose Levkas or Nidri.
The southern Ionian offers the easiest sailing in Greece. It is extremely popular and often over-crowded, with only modest average sailing skills. Overnight mooring spots can be full at mid-day!
Enormous selection of charter yachts at Nidri, Levkas, Preveza, and Corfu to name but four.
Several attractive itineraries for a one week cruise
Attractive anchorages and small towns everywhere
Light winds make it excellent for beginners
Over-crowded with sailors of modest skills
