A combination of sheltered coastal and exciting open water sailing lets you take in Paxos and Antipaxos, known for their wine and excellent beaches.
Each Ionian Island offers panoramic views from high mountain peaks, sheltered bays and sandy beaches ideal for diving and snorkelling, delicious traditional food and drink and ancient history spanning the very earliest western civilisations. Meanwhile, north from Corfu is Albania and another distinct, varied coastline to explore.
