The picturesque bay of Lakka is the second largest of the three main villages on Paxos Island in the northern Ionian and is a windsurfing and dinghy sailing haven and there are some great places for sailing yachts to anchor too. Lakka has many great restaurants and tavernas near the waterfront and along the lanes and alleyways that lead from the harbour into the village, all of which serve a good selection of traditional Greek cuisine. In some tavernas, the owners take you into their restaurant which is a unique experience as they tell you about what they are serving and show you the fresh local produce, all done in the friendly Greek style! The family friendly bars help you relax and unwind after a day sailing, whilst you sit back on the water’s edge and watch the boats come in and out. The cocktails here are particularly delicious!

Lakka is a magnificent setting on Paxos island, at the head of a long, curving inlet with water that is the most beautiful shade of turquoise. Hills covered in trees drop gently down to the sea, providing shelter from the prevailing winds which makes this an ideal harbour to stop in during your Ionian yacht charter when visiting Paxos.

Translating as ‘unspoilt’ in Greek, this truly describes this bay in north east Corfu.

On the most beautiful side of Corfu, the north east coast, Agni, is famous for its excellent waterside tavernas. Agni is a great place for yachts and sailing boats to anchor in the afternoons for a swim, for scuba diving or to enjoy a lovely meal in one of the fish restaurants. Agni literally translates as ‘unspoilt’ in Greek and this describes the bay well, for it’s shiny pebble beaches and dotted patches of sand. The tavernas on Agni serve famous Corfiot dishes that really show their Venetian influence, including delicious fresh seafood cooked in a variety of different ways to suit all palettes.

Take a stroll through the traditional fishing village and get a fascinating insight to life on Petriti.

The village of Petriti is a small traditional fishing harbour on the east coast of Corfu (or Kerkyra) and a stop for a meal of freshly caught fish is highly recommended. With a number of berths for visiting sailing yachts this northern Ionian fishing village retains its old Greek charm and is quite different from Petriti’s neighbouring resort towns of Lefkimni (Kavos) and Boukari (Voukari), both more touched by tourism.

Taking a stroll around this little village reveals an intense activity demonstrated by the fishermen, which is fascinating to watch as you get a little insight into life on Petriti. Despite the tourism, it still manages to retain it’s unique character and typical Greek charm.
