Kefalonia
Kefalonia Kefaloniain Greece is one of the most popular destinations of the Ionian Islands and the biggest island of the group. The Greek Island of Kefalonia has many wonderful beaches with fine sand and turquoise, bleach-like waters, specific to the island. This make of Kefalonia one of the favourite stop during a pleasant Ionian islands sailing vacation. Others of its many beauties are its picturesque villages, its National Park on its highest mountain (Mount Ainos) on which a rare specie of fir forest grows and terrific landscapes.

cefalonia The wonderful beaches of Kefalonia are famous in Greece for their extreme and unspoiled natural beauty. They all have fine golden or white sand and magnificent emerald waters. Some of those beaches are large, fully organised while others are coil up in picturesque little bays and are empty of every kind of facilities: Myrtos, Lourdas, Skala, Xi, Megas Lakos, Antisamos and many more...

Lefkas
From the waters Lefkadaof the Ionian sea emerges a piece of land, where each stone tells of the magic of ancient times and where nature all around us displays its fantasy and creative power. The island of Lefkada with its unique character offers you more diverse opportunities than you could possibly imagine. Not only because of the chalk beaches on the west coast where the beautiful harmony of sky, land, sea and sun will take your breath away.

Lefkada But also because of time, capable of transforming everything, which can be stopped only by the traditional way of life of the local inhabitants. We recommend the island of Lefkada primarily to those who seek a pleasant atmosphere for salubrious relaxation and an amazing sailing escape among sun and nature. "Don't shy away from a quiet pace of life". Despite of being one of the most beautiful and popular islands of Greece, Lefkada remains quite undeveloped and authentic. It is also a famous destination for windsurfing and kite surfing lovers because some of its wonderful beaches offer ideal conditions for these sports. Lefkada is also known for its perfect sailing conditions. As one will quickly discover, Lefkada constitutes a perfect destination for sailing, peaceful, educational sportive holiday.

Zante
Zakynthos Zante, Greece, Zanteis located 17 nautical miles away from the Peloponnese and 13 nautical miles south of the island of Kefalonia. The Venetians had given to the island the surname “Fiore di Levante”, meaning “Flower of the Orient” because the island has rich and dense vegetation, its mountains are covered with pines and its plains are particularly fertile. This rich vegetation is due to the mild Mediterranean climate of the island, characterized by a high level of rainfalls in winter and lot of sunshine during summer time. Because of the many rainfalls, Zakynthos is a very fertile island and its agricultural production is important. Except agriculture, the other source of income for the inhabitant of the island comes from the increasing tourism. Zakynthos is famous because its unspoiled natural environment is home to the endangered specie of sea turtle called Caretta-Caretta and the Monk seal which go to Zakynthos there during their reproduction period. This sea turtle is protected by the international agreements and the Greek legislation. Zakynthos is also famous for its amazing wonderful golden sandy beaches. The most famous beaches are as Vassilikos, Laganas, Tsilivi and Alykes.
