The Ionian Coast, Greece
Hands-down, our top sailing location has to be the idyllic Ionian coastline in Greece. Dotted with tiny islands, white-washed fishing villages and harbours full of friendly waterfront tavernas, this stunning setting is a sailor’s dream. The clear waters of the Ionian Sea tend to be sheltered and warm, offering the chance to spot dolphins, turtles and rays swimming – and maybe even take a dip with them.
Join one of the Neilson north Ionian flotillas at our Retreat Beachclub to explore highlights such as the islands of Corfu and Paxos, as well as the Venetian town on Parga and the peaceful port of Platarias on the mainland.
Set sail with one of the Neilson south Ionian flotillas from our Vounaki Beachclub and you’ll be island-hopping through stunning locations like Cephalonia, Lefkas and Kastos. The light winds in this part of the Ionian Sea are ideal for beginners.
