They are beautiful and famous: for their exotic beaches and exciting water sports, their unique nature and the wide array of activities they offer, the cosmopolitan ports that attract celebrities and international jet setters, the mediaeval castles and holy pilgrimages as well as the aristocratic towns, traditional villages, Italian-inspired local specialties, folk music and rich cultural events.
Yes, holidays in the Ionian Islands are much more than sun and sea experiences in the middle of the Mediterranean. You’ll encounter world-renowned, iconic beaches like Navagio in Zante, Myrto and Antisamos in Kefalonia, Porto Katsiki, Kathisma and Egremni in Lefkada. You’ll experience the purity of nature in Zante’s National Marine Park, Mount Ainos in Kefalonia and in every corner of these lush green islands. You’ll experience the cosmopolitan atmosphere in the port of Fiskardo in Kefalonia and in tiny Ithaca, the Venetian castles and the fairytale palaces of Corfu, the distinctive flavours of regional delicacies and local products such as bourdeto, pastitsada, sofrito and kumquat, tsitsibira (ginger beer), Robola wine and Eglouvi lentils. Islands like colourful mosaics that make up the many different faces of authentic Greece.
