One of the best ways to see as much of the Ionian Islands as possible is to rent a motorboat in Ionian Greece. You can choose to steer the boat yourself or hire a boat that has a skipper if you and your friends want to be able to sit back and relax.
Whichever option you choose, there are many different sights to see around the six main islands that make up the group. The islands are situated off the coast of Greece, in the Ionian Sea. One of the biggest islands is Corfu. This is also the most popular location with tourists who are keen to see sights such as 15th-century Old Fortress. There is more culture to enjoy if you visit the Museum of Asian Art which is on the island. You can end your stay on Corfu with a meal and drinks at one of the many local restaurants. Then, you can take to the water, to speed off to your next island destination.
Zakynthos, which is also known as Zante, is similar to Corfu in that it's hugely popular with tourists. For this reason it's best to avoid party towns like Laganas, if you are aiming to enjoy some quiet time, walking or taking a swim. If you are looking for exploration rather than partying, it's a good idea to head to the northern part of the island. Once you have moored the motorboat that you have rented, you can spend some time enjoying the sun while laying on one of the stunning beaches on the island.
The Ionian Islands are not all about Corfu and Zakynthos, there are four other main islands which are equally worth visiting, as well as several smaller ones. One of the smallest of the main islands is Paxi. There is not as much activity here as there is on the other islands but it's the perfect location to choose if you love to swim.
Kefaloniá, Itháki, and Lefkáda can be visited as a trio of islands. If you want to make sure that you visit them in comfort, you should choose a motorboat from the brochures of Sailogy. There are plenty of reasonably priced options to choose from.
On Lefkada, you will find some stunning beaches to explore. You will also notice that they are not as full of people as the beaches on the larger islands are.
Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian Islands by area but has a smaller population than Zakynthos and Corfu. There are several authentic towns on Kefalonia which give you an insight into real life in the area. You should also be careful not to miss the stunning scenery on the island.
Ithaki is not the best place to visit if you are looking for sandy beaches as there is no sand on this island. The environment is rocky and is popular with climbers. It's also a great place to spend time hiking. This is definitely one of the best islands to visit if you would like to take a break from sailing and experience some other adventures.
In order to ensure that you travel between these islands safely and comfortably, you should look through the brochures of Sailogy, to find a reliable motorboat that you can rent at a reasonable cost. Once you have rented a motorboat, with or without a skipper, you have the freedom that you need to explore each of the islands individually. You may even want to pay a visit to some of the smaller, less well-known islands where you can find some exquisite beaches that are not as popular with visitors and where you can experience tranquility along with the beauty of the sand and sea.
