The Ionian Sea is divided into two parts - North and South. To sail the North Ionian, you will need to start from Corfu (Gouvia marina) and fly in and out of the International Airport of Corfu; to explore the South Ionian, you can either start from Lefkas or Preveza marina. The South Ionian is served by the International Airport of Preveza.
Transfer time (Corfu): 15 mins
Transfer time (Lefkas): 25 mins
It is also possible to combine the North and South Ionian itineraries on a 2-week yacht charter.
The weather in this area is usually very sunny and warm. During spring, summer, and autumn, an NW wind of up to 3 Beaufort starts blowing almost every afternoon (2-3pm) and dies down after sunset.
North of Corfu you shouldn't miss the tiny, almost untouched Diapontia Islands of Manthraki, Othonoi, and Ereikoussa.
Credit Cards are accepted in most places, however, we do recommend having some euros with you in cash as well.
Many anchorages, town harbours and marinas dotted around the coastline.
