Even during the high season you will still find your bay. solitude, untouched and original villages, without the bustle of tourists.
On the other hand, there are also some lively spots with tavernas, shopping areas and entertainment, like Corfu Town, Sivota/Mourtos on Mainland, Lakka and Gaios on Paxoi Island, Lefkas Town, Nidri on Lefkas Island, Fiskardo on Cefallinia Island etc.
180 n miles from North to the South this region has varying distances of about 10 nm amongst the single island (the only exception is the distance of 30 nm between Antipaxoi and Lefkas) offering abundant possibilities and alternatives for the experienced and sportive sailor, to relaxed family sailing from bay to bay.
Protected sea conditions between the islands and the mainland ensure a safe holiday, free from stress situations in moderate and often very constant thermal winds, for charter newcomers and families with children.
