Ionian Islands of Greece

Probably the best known of the Ionian islands, Corfu is a great place to visit on a yacht. Stay in Mandraki marina which is located within the old fort and take a stroll into the stunning old town with splendid Venetian architecture. From here you can try out the many amazing tavernas and cafes and soak up the history of the place.

NAOK Yacht Club

The NAOK yacht club (Nautical club of Corfu or the Navy Athletic Club of Corfu) was founded in 1935 and is on the West side of Ormos Garitsas and a short stroll from Corfu town (Kerkyra or Kerkira). With a stunning backdrop the yacht club is one of our favourites and provides toilets, showers and water. Call ahead to ensure a space (especially in high season). There is mooring fee to pay which varies depending on the time of year but we feel this is well worth it for the truly magical backdrop of Corfu town and the stunning fortress on Ak Sidhero. Mooring fees are directly invested back into the sailing club which organises and supports youth sailing programs which are well worth supporting. The telephone number for NAOK Yacht Club in Corfu (Kerkyra) is 0030 26610 30470 or 0030 69759 55530.

Kassiopi, Corfu

Kassiopi is a charming and deceptively large town on the north east corner of the island of Corfu, 22 miles north of Corfu Town (Kerkyra). One of the prettiest harbours in Corfu, Kassiopi has the magnificent backdrop of Mount Pantokrator and beautiful hills covered with olive groves, vines and citrus plantations. In the 4th century B.C., Kassiopi was an important Roman port, dedicated to the god Kassios Zeus, protector of seafarers. Between Kassiopi and Barbati the coastline is sculpted into a chain of small bays and coves, ideal moorings for your yacht. The upbeat village has something for everyone, whether it’s late night bars, scenic headland walks or exploring the remains of Kassiopi Castle up on the hillside. You’re also around an hour’s drive away from Corfu Town, the islands Capital.

Kalami Bay, Corfu

Kalami bay is set nestling below the North East Corfu hills and famous for the Nobel Prize nominated writer, Lawrence Durrell’s ‘White House’ and beautiful beach. Once a quiet fishing village Kalami is now one of the livelier resorts of Corfu which combines the scenery of the countryside amongst the mountains with lush of greenery and the crystal waters of Ionian Sea.

Agni, 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.

Agios Stefanos, Corfu

The beautiful bay of Agios Stefanos on the north western coast of Corfu is a quaint little bay with several tavernas and shops ashore. There is no quay but you can anchor in the bay and take a dinghy ashore. The former fishing village has since become an up-market resort, and holds a long sandy beach, a wide variety of bars and tavernas and is sheltered by the surrounding hills.
