Travelling by motorboat is one of the most exciting ways to explore the Ionian Islands. If you do not want to take control of the motorboat yourself, you can rent a motorboat in Ionian Greece with a skipper. Not only will the skipper navigate the boat for you, they will also help you to make the most of your experience, by giving you the advice and information that you need.
They can tell you what to expect from the Ionian Islands, which are located off the coast of mainland Greece. This advice is useful because there are so many different options when it comes to what to see and do in the Ionian Islands.
Watersports are hugely popular, especially on the more tourist focused islands like Corfu and Zakynthos. You can enjoy some time jet skiing or have some fun on a banana boat with your friends. There are also opportunities to take part in adventurous activities such as kitesurfing. If you would rather escape the adventure, you can simply relax on any of the pristine beaches that can be found on the islands. When you are looking for the best beach to stroll along, do not forget to consider the smaller islands and not just the main six.
Choosing a motorboat with a skipper from the brochures of Sailogy, means that you can ask for advice about the best beaches to visit. You also get the benefit of having access to a comfortable and reliable motorboat, at a reasonable cost.
If you do not want to spend all of your time on a beach, there are many walking trails and climbing opportunities to enjoy. You can also visit the marine parks where you can see Loggerhead Turtles and Monk Seals up close.
The Ionian Islands all have similar lush landscapes and a cooler climate than mainland Greece. However, they also have specific individual attributes. Corfu is the most populous island and the most popular with tourists. It's famous as a party island, as is Zakynthos which is also known as Zante. They also have many attractive beaches where you can take a swim once you have moored your rented motorboat.
Paxi is one of the smallest of the main islands. It does not have many historical sites to visit but the swimming is some of the best that you will find anywhere in the Ionian Islands. Once you have finished swimming in the blue crystal waters around Paxi, you can get back on-board your motorboat and continue your exploration of the islands.
This exploration should include the islands of Lefkada, Kefalonia and Ithaki. Kefalonia is the biggest of the Ionian Islands when it comes to area. It's also home to some of the most authentic towns and villages in the island group. This is one of the best places to get a feel for the real life of Ionian Islanders.
Lefkada is an island that is actually attached to the Greek mainland by a causeway and an iron bridge. Even so, it's not overly popular with tourists so you have the opportunity to explore some excellent uncrowded beaches.
Examining the brochures of Sailogy gives you access to the comfortable motorboat with a skipper that you need to explore all of these islands, as well as the island of Ithaki. This is different to the other main Ionian Islands in that it does not have any sand. It's a rocky location that you should visit if you want to take a break from the motorboat that you have rented and spend some time climbing or hiking.
