Quiet and tranquil the beautiful southern Ionian island of Kastos has a very small population and only one village. A really beautiful setting with excellent swimming and snorkeling it is fast developing to cater for the large number of sailing yachts that pass through on their yacht charter holidays during the summer months to see the beautiful views from the windmill on the cliffs edge.

There are a few Greek tavernas and restaurants where you can enjoy some excellent food. There is a shop as well as a small range of facilities for visitors. Port Kastos is a very scenic port and definitely worth a visit whilst on an Ionian yacht charter holiday. The bays to the south of port Kastos are also lovely and many are suitable for overnight mooring. Spend the day relaxing in a bay on Kastos on your yacht and you are almost guaranteed to find one to yourselves.

If you come across a group of dolphins while sailing Ionian waters, please follow a very basic code of conduct (http://ioniandolphinproject.org/dolphin-watching-tips/) to minimize the potential disturbance that your presence might cause to the animals.

Vathi on the Greek island of Ithaca (or Ithaki) is one of the larger Ionian island towns and more cosmopolitan than some, a picture of classical Greece with tavernas and cafes spilling out onto the town square lining the harbour’s edge. A beautiful white washed little church at the entrance to the harbour welcomes you this fantastic Ionian town.

Vathi (or Vathy) is one of the South Ionian’s major ports where you can obtain all the yacht charter supplies you may need with shops, a few banks and a whole host of tavernas and cafés, Niko’s taverna behind the main square and Poseidon cafe are a couple of favourites. A great place to sit and drink coffee in a genuine Greek community with some nice jewellery and craft shops and gorgeous bakeries. Vathi is also one of the best places to leave your sailing yacht and hire a car or bike to explore the magical island of Ithaka from ashore.

Fiskardo (or Fiscardho or Fiskardho!) is a bustling, crescent shaped harbour with brightly painted houses, harbour side cafes and restaurants. Located on the northern tip of Kefalonia, Fiskardo is a well protected bay and also a very popular one. Fiscardo offers a wide selection of cafe bars, restaurants and tavernas to enjoy as well as an array of shops, cash points, showers and a regular ferry service are available in the port. On the pontoons you will be able to fill up with water. It has been said that Fiskardo is the most scenic spot in the Ionian island sailing area and certainly one of the best opportunities to take some photographs!

If you are planning on visiting in the high season it is best to arrive early in the afternoon to avoid disappointment in finding a place to moor. You may wish to moor in the bay just south of Fiskardo, explore the caves and take a dinghy into town. Dinghies and outboards are provided with every Island Sailing yacht charter in Greece. Sailing south choose from many inlets where you can stop, swim and relax before heading to Agios Euphemia, from where you can visit the famous underground caves of Lake Melissani.Fiskardo, Kefalonia

The dramatic horseshoe bay and village of Kioni is one of the most beautiful places to visit whilst on a yacht charter holiday in the Greek Ionian. The entrance to Kioni bay is overlooked by three old windmills, and from here one sees the old village houses dotted on the hillsides behind the little port. The water is clear and there are four beaches within the bay itself, all with views across to the pastel coloured houses and surrounding olive groves. The picturesque village with traditional architecture is a great little place famous for its jewellery shops, with some great tavernas and restaurants.

For serenity and relaxation they are ideal places to stop!

Between Vathi and Port Atheni on Meganisi there are two large beautiful bays with coves dotted around the edges. For serenity and relaxation on your yacht charter in Greece they are ideal places to stop. Both these bays, Abeliki Bay and Kapali Bay offer the ideal location for a peaceful night on board your sailing yacht and even a romantic night gazing at the stars. You can also take a walk to Vathi from Abelike bay (about 25 minutes).

Alternatively you can anchor in one of the many beautiful inlets for a lunchtime swim or snorkel before heading to one of Meganissi’s nearby ports for the evening. Masks and snorkels are available on your Island Sailing yacht charter and the amazing bathing platforms on the brand new Island Sailing Bavaria cruiser yachts are just perfect for swimming and sunbathing in the beautiful Ionian.
