Corfu is a beautiful island with a host of coves that are waiting to be explored. Sat in the Ionian sea it’s one of several impressive islands, all of which can be visited, explored, and appreciated when you rent a sailboat in Corfu.
The best thing is that the airport in Corfu is just 20 minutes away from the marina, meaning that you can be off your plane and on the water within an hour if you get the timing right.
