Zante1 Zante2 Parga1

The Ionian Islands are an emerald scattering of large islands – Zante, Kefalonia, Atokos, Ithaca, Meganisi – found off the west coast of mainland Greece. The region is famed for pristine beaches, the unforgettable blue of the sea and the lush Mediterranean landscape. Several lesser-known smaller islands make up this paradise cluster. We will spend a week at sea, exploring the very best of this island cluster paradise, stopping in Poros, Agia Efimia, Vathi, Fiskardo, Meganisi and returning to Zante.

This trip is best suited for those who want to set sail for discovery, heritage and historical sightseeing, the best of nature and deserted beaches, on-deck sea-view unwinding and the friendly atmosphere of a small ship cruise. The friendly crew will attend to all your needs along the way. There are freshly prepared meals (Breakfast and Lunch), and all cabins include a private bathroom and air-conditioning.


Zante, Greece Sailing Vacation Itinerary


Vacation Day 1: Zante-Agios Nikolaos

3Since today is arrival day and we don’t set sail until after sunset, you have plenty of time to explore the wonders of Zante Island. If you have time don’t miss the chance to explore the Byzantine Museum, the National Marine Park in Laganás Bay. 
Tonight we will get acquainted with our sailing home for the next few days and get settled in. We start by dining with a view of the ocean as we set sail towards Agios Nikolaos.
Note: On the rare occasion of any issues that may result from late arrivals, there is a possibility that we do not depart Zante the next day, and instead set sail on Sunday morning.

 

Vacation Day 2: Agios Nikolaos-Agia Thimia
AgiosThe rainfall on the Ionian Islands is what enables its lush and verdant landscapes to flourish. Think of thick forests, natural coves, green hills with olive groves, and ardent valleys that sit back-to-back with crystal clear waters and sparkling white beaches. 
In the evening, stroll the traditional Marina village and take your pick of Greek eats from the idyllic tavern-lined promenade, where you can watch the sunset.
We sail towards Agia Ethimia

 

Vacation Day 3: Agia Thimia-Ithaca (Vathi)
EthacaNestled on the Ionian coastline of the Greece Mainland, Ithaca has been described as one of the region’s most beautiful villages. This is because of its two crystal clear bays that line either side of its main town and the iconic Venetian fortress that forms an impressive backdrop.
Known for its stunning natural environment that gives it an island feel.
We will have lunch onboard, but stay in town for an evening of Greek feasting and hospitality.

 

Vacation Day 4: Ithaca (Vathi)-Meganisi
Ithaca Vathi MeganisiNot many people know of Meganisi, Grece. It is overshadowed by the main island of Corfu, but you will be glad you got to experience this lesser-known beauty spot. First, we have lunch before stopping for some coastal relaxation at some of the island's secluded areas. Go snorkelling in the turquoise waters, feel the pebbles under your feet, take a walk amongst the clifftop surroundings and visit the Town. We will dine at a pop-up beach tavern in a secluded bay tucked away from the crowds, and later watch the stars from the deck of the yacht.

 

Vacation Day 5: Meganisi - Fiskardo

We will dock at the port of Gaios ready for a full day on the island.  You can easily explore with a motorcycle, although it’s also easy by foot, bike or car too. Spend the day seeking out the secluded coves and bays for swimming, enjoy the Venetian architecture of Gaios town or sample the world-renowned olive oil from the surrounding groves.  Watch the fisherman go about their work from one of the seafront cafes, before enjoying some of the best and freshest seafood at one of the excellent local tavernas that stock the best catch of the day.

 

Vacation Day 6: Fiskardo-Paros
paros islandDotted with secluded bays and sea caves, with shallow waters for those keen to explore the underworld of the Ionian Sea, this part of Kefalonia Island is an explorer’s dream. Enjoy lunch on the vessel while we sail towards bustling Poros, the second largest village on the island set in a horseshoe bay to a backdrop of olive and cypresses trees. Visit the pebbled Kanoni beach and sandy Harami beach and wander amongst nature Later, stroll the vibrant promenade along the seafront. Full of bars and tavernas Poros is the epitome of old school Greek charm. We will dock overnight at a picturesque bay here.

 

Vacation Day 7: Paros-Zante
excexexBefore we head back to the mainland of Zante Island, with free time to explore, we take the chance to fit in one more of Zante’s long sandy beaches. We visit the beautiful Shipwreck Beach and village on the east coast of the island, enjoying an onboard lunch on the way for some final sweeping sea views.
