04 Aug Corfu by Boat
There is but one way above all others, to get the best possible sensation of what Corfu, the Emerald Isle of the Mediterranean, is all about.
Exploring the coastal waters of Corfu, you will be seduced by another-worldly beauty, where azurine Ionian Blue waters meet emerald green shores.
While staying at S&O Villas in Corfu there are plenty of easy options to see Corfu by boat.
From Gouvia Marina
You can hire your own boat from Gouvia Marina which is nearby. From here, there is also the possibility to have a professional skipper accompany you, should you wish to hire a larger motorboat or go sailing for the day or even two.
Sailing in the Ionian Sea is an experience of a lifetime you shouldn’t miss. There are many nearby destinations like Paxos and Parga, but Corfu Island has much to offer a sea lover upon her shores.
From Corfu Town
Corfu by boat doesn’t have to be fast or expensive. There are a number of boat rides you can take that will give you the real feel of Corfu on the sea.
A traditional caïque boat leaves the old harbour of Corfu Town every half hour to Vidos Island. A ten minute ride across to this fascinating islet in the harbour of Corfu, is enough for you to capture the sea breeze and enjoy spectacular views of UNESCO World Heritage Town of Corfu.
From Kanoni you can also catch a small boat to Mouse Island, just off the southern end of the airport runway. A small monastery is in the middle of this islet with unique 360 degree views.
Paleokastritsa is on the central west coast of Corfu and one of the oldest summer resorts on the island. It is famous for its breathtaking coastline, mermaid coves and mythic caves. From the central beach you can hire a boat or be dropped off on any distant beach for a few hours. A cave tour is always worth it, unless you prefer a glass bottom boat kind of adventure.
The North East Coast
Pack a cooler box picnic and plenty of chilled drinks and head for the north east coast of Corfu. This Riviera style coastline boasts dozens of small secluded beaches and magnificent rock formations you can perch yourself on for the day and really feel like your dream just came true.
Dassia, Barbati, Nissaki and San Stefanos are but some of the resorts you can hire a motor boat from for the day. While staying at S&O Villas in Corfu, make sure you ask us about boat rental bookings in advance.
Keeping safe at sea is wise, but make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity of a life time to experience beauty and freedom at the same time!
