The Ionian Islands, off the west coast of Greece, are a truly stunning part of the world. You can visit Corfu which has a party atmosphere combined with historic sights. You can also pay a visit to Paxi, with its pretty villages and excellent swimming opportunities.
One of the best ways to visit these islands, and others in the group, is to rent a catamaran in Ionian Greece with a skipper. Having a skipper on-board means that you and your friends can sit back and relax while someone else does the work. You can savour the experience of travelling across the crystal blue waters to reach your next island destination.
Take a look at the brochures from Sailogy, to find a catamaran with a skipper that is ideal for your trip. There are different catamarans to choose from which you can rent at a reasonable cost. If you choose one which has a skipper, you get the advantage of having an expert on-board who can give you advice about the islands and the places that you should visit.
One of these places is the island of Zakynthos. Like Corfu, it has a party atmosphere in towns like Laganas. It also has popular beaches like Agios, Nikolaos and Navagio. Away from the more popular areas, you still have the opportunity to take a walk and immerse yourself in the beauty of the island.
Kefalonia is also a beautiful island to visit. It's larger than the other islands, by area, and is home to some lovely towns where you can stop off during your exploration. There are also several stunning beaches on the island where you can relax and enjoy the sun, or take a stroll and feel the warm sand under your feet.
Ithaki is different to the other main islands in the group as it does not have any sand. It has a rocky landscape that is ideal if you like the idea of enjoying some climbing activity during your visit to the islands. It's also a great place for hiking and provides a good alternative to the more tourist focused Ionian Islands.
Getting to islands like Ithaki is easy, if you rent a catamaran in Ionian Greece with a skipper. You can rely on the skipper to navigate the catamaran for you and to provide you with useful information about the islands. Find a catamaran with a skipper by browsing through the brochures of Sailogy. Once you have made your choice, you can visit the six main islands Corfu, Zakynthos, Paxi, Lefkada, Kefalonia and Ithaki. The rugged island of Kýthira is also often listed as a main island but it's geographically separate from the main group and can only be accessed from the southern Peloponnese.
Whichever of the islands you choose to explore, you will find that there are plenty of activities to enjoy. You can rent a jet ski, try kite-surfing or go swimming. Away from the water, you can go hiking or climbing, or you can choose to simply relax and enjoy a meal in one of the local restaurants. You can also pay a visit to the marine parks where you can say hello to the Loggerhead Turtles and Monk Seals that live there.
There is certainly no shortage of activities that you and your friends can enjoy while travelling around these stunning islands in the Ionian Sea. Each island has its own attributes to discover, both on the water and on land. You just need to rent a reliable catamaran from Sailogy and you can make some amazing memories.
