Sagiada
15 nm
Sagiada

The small harbor of Sagiada in the village is called Skaloma and is popular with tourists sailing across the Ionian Sea. Fishing is the locals’ way of living, as apart from private fishing boats which throw their fishing nets in the open sea, there are numerous fish farms along the coastline all the way up to the Albanian border. Because of the abundance of fish, the village, although it can’t be considered as a popular holiday resort, is worth visiting for its traditional fish tavernas serving what else…fresh fish, grilled or fried, and any kind of sea food.

According to local history, during the time Epirus was a kingdom, in the area of Sagiada there was a fort that was later conquered by the Venetians (1402 A.C.) with the help of people coming from Corfu.

The ruins of this fort can be seen today at the top of the mountain Strovili. Under the same name, Strovili, there is also a beach, which together with Keramidi are the two nearest to Sagiada beaches.

For those of you who love trekking a visit to the Old village of Sagiada is something worth doing. There are trekking trails leading you from Sagiada to the Old village up in the mountain which was abandoned after the second World War. Once there you will see nothing but the ruins of stone-built detached houses, or cobbled streets but the view from up there will definitely compensate you for the hike.

Paxoi (Gaios) - Antipaxoi
28 nm
Paxoi (Gaios) - Antipaxoi

According to mythology, Paxoi were created by God of the Sea Poseidon with his trident, in order to nest his love with Goddess Amfitriti. Hence, the symbol of the islands is Poseidon's trident.

The main port and capital of Paxos island, Gaios is invisible right up to the last minute as you approach it. It lies at the end of a ‘fjord’ created by the islet of Agios Nikolaos, which suddenly opens up to reveal a fine harbour. The town, which has held on to its original Venetian layout and architecture, boasts a number of prized possessions, like the old British governor’s mansion and the church of Agii Apostoli with an impressive cistern above it. You’ll love wandering into the old shops and cafes, some unchanged since they first opened at the turn of the last century.

You’ll find turquoise-blue translucent water and the whitest of white sand on beaches on both Paxos and Antipaxos. Note these names: Orkos on Paxos, Vrika and Voutoumi on Antipaxos are beaches that should be top of your list amongst all the Ionian Islands.

The castle of Agios Nikolaos on the island of the same name, opposite Paxos’ main port of Gaios, has landmark status. The Venetians began construction on this amazing attraction in 1423 and finished it in 1510. Its secret? It was built from plans prepared by none other than Leonardo da Vinci that are still preserved in the city’s archives.

On an island with little water, the rain was so precious on Paxos that the islanders built monumental cisterns to store it. Today, they are considered ingenious works of art and part of Paxos’ cultural heritage.

Sweet and dark, the wine made from little-known grape varieties like Pheidias and Petrokodrynthos in Paxos is one of a kind. Production is on a small scale, so you won’t find it in every bar, but it’s worth tasting, so do seek it out.

This west coast of Paxos is a wonderland of white cliffs and grottoes. By yacht, you can investigate them all: the caves at Ahai, the vast grotto of Ypapanti, the cliffs at Eremitis beach. You’ll get your biggest surprise at Ortholithos. As its name implies, it’s an enormous rock in the shape of one of Obelix’s menhirs that rises straight out of the water.

At only 3km in length, teeny Antipaxos island (just south of Paxos) would fit most definitions of paradise. A dense forest of mastic, pine, myrtle and cypress trees covers it, interspersed with grapevines. Well worth investigating if you can bear to leave the beach.

Vasiliki on the island of Lefkas reflects the zest for life. Enjoy the advantage this spoilt sunny spot in the Mediterranean has. You will amaze yourself with the choice of fresh and natural food in the taverns/restaurants. Discover what pure nature is about, with its beaches and incredible landscapes.

Vasiliki, in the wandering place of the mythical Odysseus, is one of Greece’s top ranking destinations for relaxing and water sports. Although a very beautiful place to visit, keep in mind due to her position you need to be very careful with the weather forecast as very strong gusts of winds can come and jeopardise a yacht's mooring position.

Kefalonia (Fiscardo - Assos)

Kefalonia (Fiscardo - Assos)

Between the other islands of the Ionian Sea stands grand Kefalonia. Much photographed, much-talked about, much-loved by Greeks and foreigners alike. Not just because of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, the 2001 film set on Kefalonia island that attracted so much attention, but also because of its sheer beauty, stately towns and many other impressive attractions.
Argostoli, Lixouri, Fiskardo, Assos, Lake Melissani, the names alone are something to marvel at! Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands, renowned for its emerald-green mountains and the sparkling azure waters and dazzling beaches of the Ionian Sea, has been a popular holiday spot in Greece for decades.
The inhabitants of Kefalonia have a reputation for being the wittiest Greeks – always ready with a joke, a smile and a helping hand. Their laid-back attitude toward life is infectious and within hours of your arrival, you’ll feel as carefree as they do.
A paradise of sea activities but also hiking and horse riding, Kefalonia is a very diverse island that offers a great variety of experiences.

Famous from ancient times for her amazing wines (Robola, Tsaousi, Thiniatiko, Vostilidi or Gustolidi, Moschato, Mavrodaphne) Kefalonia was mentioned in Homer’s writings, where Laertis, father of the "cunning Odysseus (or Ullyses)", had a vine with 19 rows of different grape varieties! The wines of Cephalonia were known since ancient times, consisting of the most appreciable gift!
The Homeric heroes drank wine to hold friendships, create new bounds, dispel misunderstandings, and build alliances. In Homer’s poems Iliad & Odyssey, nectar is the drink and ambrosia is the food. In the Odyssey, Calypso is described as having “spread a table with ambrosia and set it by Hermes, and mixed the rosy-red nectar”.

Argostoli

Argostoli

Historically, the Venetians occupied Kefalonia for many centuries. The Ionian islands were later occupied also by the French and the British. All these foreign cultures and influences impacted heavily the Kefalonians in all aspects of their lives. The town of Argostoli was almost entirely destroyed by the earthquakes of 1953, and the British helped rebuild much of its infrastructure.
Before the earthquake, many beautiful mansions decorated the city. They were indicative of Venetian Architecture, with RenaissanceRococo, and Baroque elements. There are many buildings and ruins, rich in history and cultural significance. From the 6th-century Cyclopean Walls of Ancient Krani, to the renovated buildings after the earthquake of 1953, you can watch history unfold right in front of your eyes.

Bridge De Bosse or "Devosetos Bridge", is around 700 meters long, and is the longest stone bridge over the sea in the world! It is a pedestrian bridge that connects Argostoli to the opposite side of Argostoli Bay. There lies the Drepano village, where you can find the Municipal and the English Cemetery. Additionally, the bridge separates the Koutavos lagoon from the bay. It was built in 1813, by the Swiss engineer and English governor of Kefalonia at the time, Charles de Bosset, who supervised a lot of infrastructure projects on the island.
After the earthquakes of 1953, it suffered many damages which are still visible today. Close to it, there is a small artificial island, with the monument of Obelisk in the middle. It has the shape of a four-sided pyramid, and if you look closer, you can see an inscription placed at the front, in honor of its creators.

Another landmark you can't miss, both figuratively and literally, is the renowned Lithostroto/Cobble Street. The Kampana (Bell) square is the place from where Lithostroto starts, and a place worth visiting as well.

The Lighthouse of Saint Theodore (or Fanari), is a unique building, 3kms outside of Argostoli. It is built on an artificial peninsula, and besides the value of the building itself, the view is great from there. And, of course, an ideal spot for taking photographs. It has a circular form, extending 8 meters in height, with twenty white pillars supporting it, in the fashion of a doric architectural rhythm. It was built in 1928, during the rule of the British administrator, Charles Napier. It was destroyed by the earthquake, but it was rebuilt in 1964, according to its original design.
A very interesting piece of information is the reasoning behind the formulation of its shape. In fear of the frequent earthquakes, the British built an interior circular staircase, to support it, thus granting it a unique shape and form. It is close to the Katavothres and the wider Lassi area.

The Kefalos Theater is the Municipal Theater of Kefalonia and one of international prestige and recognition. It lies on Georgiou Vergoti Street and is one of the largest and oldest theaters in Greece. It opened in 1858, under British rule and the first performance it hosted was La Traviata by Verdi and Mari di Rohan by Donizetti, in November of 1858. It has an amphitheater of 450 seats, making it the biggest theater in all of Kefalonia. Since 1994, when it was rebuilt, it has hosted many theater performances, dancing shows, scientific conferences, and art exhibitions. Furthermore, it has hosted shows of the State Orchestra, the Lyrical Scene, international theater productions, and concerts of very famous musicians.

What sets Kefalonia apart in terms of geological phenomena, is definitely the one of Katavothres. You can reach it pretty easily, since it is 3kms away from Argostoli, along the Fanardi road. The phenomenon of Katavothres is the disappearance of seawater in the cracks of the soil! It then runs through the Katavothres, a fact that has baffled scientists for years. The explanation finally, was that the Katavothres are made of limestone, and the water rain melts a chemical element of it. Then the cracks dilate, forming underground caves, tunnels, and holes. The katavothres run through the entire southern part of the island, ending in the Melissani Cave.

5 kms from Argostoli, lie the ancient Cyclopean Walls of Razata. They are walls of massive stones, dated from the 7-6th century B.C., and functioned as a formidable fortification of the city. Razata was the main area of the city in the Mycenaean era. The southern side of the hill (Riza) was the Necropolis of Kranis, 1 of the 4 city-states of Kefalonia, called Kefalianiki Tetrapolis. There are also the Doric Temple Ruins of Demeter.

At the end of your walk on the beautiful Argostoli coastline, there is the statue of the naval, Nikos Kavvadias, who is one of the most beloved Greek poets.

It is one of the most popular beaches on the island and the area is full of facilities, including places to stay, taverns, restaurants, bars and water sport centers. The sandy seashore and clear turquoise waters make the beach of Agios Nikolaos suitable for families with small children, but at the same time, it is also frequented by young people who enjoy hanging out at the local facilities.
For the most part, it is fully organized, with sunbeds and sun umbrellas to rent, while you will also find a few quiet non-organized spots. The beach can easily be approached by car and the same road will take you to the small photogenic chapel that overlooks the sea.

Kefalonia (Sami - Melissani Cave)

Sami Kefalonia is a beautiful coastal town located 25.8 km east of Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia. The village reaches a population of 1000 inhabitants most of whom are engaged in agriculture and fishing. Sami is the second largest port of Kefalonia after Argostoli. The modern village is built close to ancient Sami, one of the most important archeological discoveries of Kefalonia.

Sami is a perfect destination for your summer holidays in Greece. The delightful waterfront, the wide paved streets and the Venetian buildings offer the village a unique charm and reflect the rich heritage of the island. The main coastal road consists of modern amenities, shops and lovely cafes overlooking the busy port. A number of restaurants are found nearby as well.

Sami is surrounded by a dream landscape of verdurous imposing hills and stunning coves.  The village is home to some of the most interesting monasteries and sights in Kefalonia like the monastery of Agrilia, as well as beautiful caves (like Karavomylos and Dragati), some stunning underground lakes like the one at Melissani and Antisamos beach.

The Cave of Melissani in Kefalonia: Situated just outside Sami, the Cave of Melissani has a strange appeal. It is one of the most significant places to visit in Greece. Surprisingly, there is a lake inside the cave that has trees and forests surrounding it. The cave itself is B-shaped with two chambers or halls separated with land/island in the center. The roof of one of the halls caved in centuries ago letting sunlight filter in. The depth of the lake is 20 to 30 meters. When the sun is right overhead at noon, the sunlight hitting the turquoise-blue waters creates a magical illusion and the whole Cave of Melissani suddenly feels lit with blue light.

Vathi Ithaki
16 nm
Vathi Ithaki

Vathy, the capital of Ithaki, fans out like an amphitheatre. It is built in the inmost part of the gulf of the same name and dates back to 1500 AD. Vathy is an attractive settlement with a pronounced Venetian influence, pretty houses with tiled roofs, imposing mansions and picturesque stone-paved alleys. It has, since 1978, been classified by law as a ‘traditional’ settlement. Vathy has been inhabited continuously since the time of the Venetians. It nestles safely in the beautiful natural harbour that has been identified as the Homeric harbour of Phorcys. This is where the sea-god Phorcys had his temple and where the Phaeacians left the sleeping Odysseus.

The approach to Vathy by sea is truly an experience. The narrow neck of the harbour conceals the view of the gulf that suddenly reveals its true beauty. The entrance to this beautiful natural harbour is guarded by the remains of a small fort with two cannons. This stands just above the beach of Loutsa and was built in 1807, during the French occupation of the Ionian Islands. Purified and beautiful, the tiny isle of Lazaretto adorns the entrance to the harbour and is a point of reference for every Ithacan and visitor. Well-kept and well-lit, it hosts choice cultural events and many baptisms and weddings.

On approaching the quay, the first thing one sees is the Monument to the Sailor, a symbol of the seamanship of Ithaca from the times of the Homeric epics to the present. Through her nautical schools, her maritime trade, her contribution to the struggles of the nation for freedom and the two World Wars, the history of Ithaca is intimately and strongly connected to ships and widely-esteemed captains.  Ithaca today honours and continues this significant legacy.

At the town square of Vathy, one is welcomed by the statue with two poses of Odysseus and the bust of Homer.  The king of Ithaca, created by the Ithacan artist, Korina Kassianos, gives a certain tone and point of reference to the visitor from the outset. On the one hand, Odysseus the traveler gazes seaward and dreams of the world. On the other, Odysseus the lowly, the earthly, turned looking towards the interior of the island, labours and struggles.

Kioni - Afales beach

One of the most beautiful beaches of Ithaki, Afales situated on the norht part of the island are a must to visit. Surrounded by an idyllic landscape with tropical vegetation that reaches all the way down to the sea, the exquisite beach of the Gulf of Afales is truly a beautiful place with large white pebbles and rocky coastlines that hide two further beaches, Kouloumi and Perivoli, ideal for those that seek out absolute calm. The beaches look northwards and the Island of Lefkada lies on the horizon. The sea at Afales is sometimes slightly turbulent since the beach faces the Mistral head-on.

Without doubt, Kioni is one of Ithaca’s most beautiful villages and one of the most stunning destinations in the Ionian Sea. Its settlement dates from the 16th century when access to the sea became imperative for the inhabitants of nearby, hillside settlements. As you approach Kioni, you are greeted by the sight of its small, beautiful bay and by the traditional, well-maintained houses built in the amphitheatre rising from the sea and losing themselves in the woodlands of the surrounding hillsides.

Descending into Kioni towards the harbour and the bay, you will pass by the church of Agios Ioannis, well known for the beauty of its wood-carved altar screens. The vista, as you descend, is one of olive trees, cypress trees, and the red-tiled roofs that peek from amongst the lush foliage

Once at the water’s edge, you can choose from a variety of cafes and restaurants and, in the evening, the three windmills that guard the entrance to the bay are lit up to great effect. A sail towards ‘Argalio’ and the neighbourhood of Loutsa brings you close to the ruins of the home of Georgios Karaïskakis, a hero of the 1821 Greek uprising, and to the pebbled beaches and crystal clear waters of Katsikouli, Sarakinari, Plakoutses and Filiatro—all ideal for a refreshing swim.

Kioni celebrates the festival of the Prophet Elias on the 20th of July every year. On this day, there are morning services at the small church to which worshippers are transported by small boats. The evening celebration is held in the square, close to the water and lasts throughout the night.

Mourtos Syvota is a small village and fishing harbour located on the mainland of Greece opposite the southern part of Corfu, six miles S of Igoumenitsa and three miles S of Plataria. In recent years it has been rather overtaken by tourism and the small harbour is now used as much by yachts as fishing boats, while the quay is a mass of tourist restaurants and bars. In evenings in the season - especially at weekends - the quay is packed with charter and cruising yachts alike and it can be difficult to find a place. The harbour also contains a small marina, half of which is taken up by local boats but the other half can be used by visiting yachts. The marina is partly equipped with laid moorings, although some yachts will need to use their anchors. Nearby are several anchorages, including around the Syvota  islands, which offer good shelter in the prevailing winds.

The charming village of Petriti is idyllically located on the eastern coast of Corfu. Close to Petriti are the villages of Lefkimni and Boukari, both very tourist-friendly. In the ancient times this village was popularly referred to as Egrypos. The word Egrypos is derived from the Greek word Evrous which literally means a good river. Today, Petriti village is sparsely populated with just 700 permanent residents most of whom are engaged in fishing.

There are a couple of picturesque harbors where colorful boats moor creating a kaleidoscopic vignette. A stroll around the harbor area in the early morning hours reveals an intense activity of the fishermen. Despite mass tourism, the settlement still retains its old charm and unique character.

The village has gained immense popularity among international tourists providing all kinds of modern tourist amenities to satisfy all the traveler's needs. From shops to happening bars and taverns, Petriti village is all geared up to welcome each and every visitor and despite mass tourism, the village still retains its rural and charming character.

Petriti village is particularly a very attractive destination for families and couples who find the tranquil village a nice choice for their holidays. Set in the midst of a lush green forest cover, there are numerous choices for hiking. Also worth visiting is the high-altitude village of Korakades which is conspicuous by its magnificent church. It hosts priceless icons, murals, and wall paintings that adorn the parapets. The best time for sightseeing in Petriti is early in the morning or during the evening hours.

If you manage to peel yourself away from the enchanting Old Town, move to the coasts of Corfu, where beautiful beaches are nestled! The beaches in Dassia, Paleokastritsa, Glyfada, Kontokali, and Kavos are must-visits. Nestled in sandy coves, surrounded by green forests and mountains, they are some of the best
beaches in Greece!
As for sightseeing, it’s one of the best things to do in Corfu! The top places to visit in Corfu are Achillion Palace, the former retreat of princess Sissi of Austria,
Mon Repos palace, the iconic Panagia Vlacherna and Pontikonisi island.
Corfu is famous for one thing in particular: it’s food! Based on meat, fish, pasta, and herbs, the island’s gastronomy will excite those who love good food.
