Yacht Charter Corfu / Marina Gouvia

Sailing_Greece_Ionian_SeaThe Yacht Charter destination Corfu is the northernmost of the Ionian islands – and the ideal starting point for a Yacht Charter cruise in the Ionian Sea. From the coast of Albania, the island is only separated by the about two kilometers wide Strait of Corfu. The next major port is Igoumenitsa on the Greek mainland, a large ferry port. Because of the lush vegetation Corfu is called the "green island". The main town is also named Corfu, or Kerkyra. Yacht Charter crews reach the Yacht Charter bases flying to the International Airport of Corfu.

The main departure port forYacht Charter cruises, the Marina Gouvia with several Yacht Charter companies, is located in the north of Corfu relatively close to the airport. In Corfu Town there are several Yacht Charter harbours: the city harbor is relatively small and noisy – in the Yacht Club NAOK south of the old fortress, Yacht Charter crews can moore quietly and have an easy walking distance to the Old Town, part of Uneso cultural world heritage. About four miles south of the town is the small town of Benitses with its port, which is used mainly by fishermen and excursion boats. For Yacht Charter crews, Benitses is a good start port to the mainland and to Paxi and Antipaxi. With motor scooters, {#keywor#} crews can explore the capital from there, and they can shop the provisions for their Yacht Charter cruises here in the local supermarkets. There is another small harbor in the north-east of the island, about 15 km from Corfu town, in the small town of Ipsos.

The Yacht Charter Marina Gouvia, home of most Yacht Charter companies on Corfu and starting point for many Yacht Charter cruises in the Ionian Sea (and for one-way Yacht Charter to Lefkas, is located in Kontokali, a fishing village with traditional Greek charm. Previously the bay served as a great natural harbor for the Venetians for commercial trade. Today, the large, modern marina is protected and said to be the safest marina in the Ionian Sea, also safe when there is a lot of swell. The Old Town of Corfu / Kerkyra is only some kilometers away, Yacht Charter crews can easily take a taxi. In the Marina Gouvia, everything Yacht Charter crews could need is available.

Yacht Charter crews should take the time to stroll through the narrow alleys of the Old Town of Corfu. Worth seeing: the Church of St. Spyridon, the patron saint of the Yacht Charter destination Corfu, the Museum of Greek money from pre-Euro times. Other attractions that are worth a visit: the Achilleon, the oldest village of Palaia Perithea, the monasteries of Panagia Mirtiotissa on the west coast and Paleokastritsa in a small bay, the monastery island Vlacherna, the ruins Angelokastro and Mount Pantokrator with great views to Albania.

An idea for a very special Yacht Charter cruise: When you plan your Yacht Charter vacation in the spring time around Orthodox Easter you should take the time for the celebration of Greek Easter with splendid processions!
