Why you should think of Ionian Cruises


The reason why tourists try not to miss cruising on the Ionian Sea is because the Ionian Islands on the west of mainland Greece include the remarkable islands of Lefkas, Paxos, Cephalonia, Ithaca, Corfu, Zakynthos, and Kythira. Apart from Kythira, which is located on the southern tip of the Peloponnesus, the other six islands are on the west coast of Greece. These seven islands are also known as the Eptanisa (Seven Islands) and Ionian cruises lead to these islands, which are among the most beautiful and stunning islands in the world.

The Ionian Sea is also one of the most important Eastern Mediterranean sailing areas for yacht charters. As the sea here is calmer and doesn't throw many tantrums, the Ionian Sea makes a perfect sailing paradise. Furthermore, with no worries about the current or the tide, the passengers can have a great and peaceful sail and enjoy snorkeling, swimming, or relaxing on the yacht.

Every evening while on Ionian cruises, the yachts moor up in small villages or even on deserted bays, but you will always be near a taverna (small restaurant serving Greek food) so that you don't miss out on the special mouth-watering food of the island in the area.

Based on your requirement, the Ionian cruises can also be long or short. As the Ionian Islands are not very far from each other, even on a short cruise you can see more of the islands, stop in one island for lunch and then sail off to the next for dinner thus making it possible to see more in less time.
