Corfu boat rental
Greece is well known for its history, food, and tourism; it is also known for the Greek Islands. The island of Corfu is situated off Greece's Northwest coast in the Ionian Sea. It hosts rugged mountains and a resort-studded shoreline with lots of options from budget to luxury. Its cultural heritage reflects years spent under a mix of Venetian, French, and British influenced rule before it was united with Greece in 1864. The town of Corfu is flanked by two imposing Venetian fortresses, features winding medieval lanes, a French-style arcade, and the Grand Palaces of St. Michael and St. George.
It's great for having dinner outdoors, shopping for stylish clothes and accessories, and just sitting with your family and friends sipping a drink and enjoying the atmosphere and the sky at night. The surrounding countryside has fertile olive groves, green cypress trees, and an abundance of wildflowers, very different from the rocky islands of the Cyclades. In Corfu town, there are some beautiful parks and gardens, as well as one of the legacies of Corfu's brief British rule, including a cricket pitch where ginger beer is served! Corfu is easily accessible from most European cities by air, and it's also easy to get around by car. But why not rent a boat and get around the waters surrounding the Island of Corfu. There is so much to see at sea!

Rent a boat for a day in Corfu
Set sail from Corfu port, and you will see the Kanoni peninsula and the palace of Mon Repos. Approaching the channel between Corfu and Paxos, you will catch sight of the greenery of Paxos covered with olive and cypress trees. Legend has it that Paxos was formed when Poseidon severed the tip of Corfu with one mighty blow of his trident and dragged it South to create an idyllic retreat for his love, Amphitrite. Your boat rental skipper can tour you to breathtaking sea caves with clear, blue waters before heading to the island of Antipaxos to swim in the crystal waters of 'Paradise Beach.' On the way back to Corfu town, entering the narrow channel, which leads to the pretty port of Gaios village, you will see the stunning view of the two islands Panagia and Agios Nikolaos.

The next day your next destination is Sagiada, a 15 mile sail back round Southeast from San Stefanos and one of the closest Greek harbours to the Albanian border.
