Enjoy yourself with us by a day trip to the Greek mainland of Epirus (opposite Kavos) at the Islands of Nea Sivota and not only! Departing from Corfu's harbour, we have a unique view of the old town, the Royal palace, and the two Venetian fortresses.
Heading towards the south of Corfu we see the Kanoni peninsula and the palace of Mon Repos where Prince Phillip from England was born. Then we sail southeast and we pass parallel from Igoumenitsa, which is the capital city of Thesprotia and the third International port in size in Greece.
The boat sails allong the mainland heading south passing by Igoumenitsa, the small fishing village of Plataria, and the Sivota Islands, where the ship enters the breathtaking cave of Sivota. Wherethe Greek submarine “Papanikolis” was hidden here beneath the lighthouse during the Second World War.
Next, we sail around the historical small islands of Sivota, where the great naval battle between the Corfiots and the Corinthians that started the 30-year Peloponnesian War took place in the summer of 432 B.C.
Soon afterwards the boat docks at traditional marina village of Sivota – a location that attracts dozens of yachts during the summer. Take the chance to stroll around the village, visit the souvenirs shops, or have a drink in one of the traditional seaside cafeterias. A pebble beach with crystal clear water – perfect for swimming and sunbathing – is just a five-minute walk to the north of the village.
Continuing the boat drops ancor at the picturesque Blue Lagoon bay, where historians say the Arabian pirates moored their ships in the Middle Ages. Make sure to the opportunity to swim in the lagoon’s exotic blue waters.
