Corfu is one of the most popular and most beautiful islands with incredible landscapes with mountains rolling into the clear blue sea.

  1. DAY 1: Pireaus-Trizonia Trizonia is a small and little known island on the Corinthian Gulf whose crystal clear waters are evidence of the tranquility that lies ashore. No cars or motorbikes are allowed on the Island, making it the perfect location to relax on the beach or take a peaceful stroll through the street.

    DAY 2: Trizonia-Kefalonia –   Kefalonia – the biggest island of the group – is surrounded by deep blue waters. The landscape is dotted with Roman, Venetian and  Byzantine ruins that punctate the stunning scenery.  Whilst on shore you can visit the world famous beaches of Myrtos and Fiskardo or take in the breathtaking views from the top of Mountain Aimos.

    DAY 3: Kefalonia-Lefkada - Despite its smaller size, this island is laced with bustling towns and tranquil beaches. Porto Kalsiki is particularly beautiful, as the beach is carved from the soft limestone of the surrounding mountains and is framed by vertical cliffs.

    DAY 4: Lefkada-Meganissi- This lush green island is perfect for those who are looking to get away from it all. Anchor in a secluded bay and relax on board or explore one of the island’s many interesting caves.

    DAY 6: Ithaki-Zakynthos- Zakynthos –or Zante-is the sunniest Island in the Med and is full of life and things to do. Aside from it’s internationally renowned nightlife and white sand, Zante also offers the chance to explore underwater caves and visit Navagio beach – the sight of a shipwreck.
