It is one of the most beautiful of the Ionian islands, and a very unique part of Greece, being one of the few places where both European and Middle Eastern powers have ruled.

There are several harbors on the island, and one full service marina. You will find top class, fully equipped yacht charters on Corfu, with a wide selection of cruises available. Corfu’s protected waters and multitude of safe anchorages, many of them accessible only by yacht, assure an endlessly relaxing holiday. The beaches of Corfu are some of the Ionian’s most beautiful, many of them with world class resorts, bars and restaurants. All of the nightlife on Corfu is located at the beach resorts of Kavos, Roda, Ypsos, Gouvia and Dassia.
