Island hopping in the Ionian islands

The islands of the Ionian Sea can easily be combined for holidays as they are connected by ferry or flight. A popular combination is the island hopping from Kefalonia to Corfu. There is no ferry between Kefalonia and Corfu but there is a charter flight by SkyExpress in summer. Also Corfu can be easily combined with holidays to Paxi.

Kefalonia can be combined for holidays with Lefkada, Ithaca and Zakynthos as there is regular ferry connection between these four islands. Ferries depart from Fiscardo in Kefardo and go to Vassiliki in Lefkada and Frikes in Ithaca. Ferries to Pisaetos in Ithaca leave from Sami in Kefalonia. Ferries from Pessada in Kefalonia go to Agios Nikolaos Shinari in Zakynthos.

Excursions in Corfu, Kefalonia and Zakynthos

Corfu, Kefalonia and Zakynthos are large islands that offer many chances for excursions. From Corfu, there are popular boat tours to Parga and Paxi, while occasionally there are also boat tours to Albania. Frequent boats also depart from Paleokastritsa to close caves and secluded beaches. The island is great to explore by car and has many nice places to see. For example, the ghost village of Old Perithia in northern Corfu is a lovely destination.

Chances for excursions in Kefalonia are many. The most beautiful beaches to swim are Myrtos, Antisamos, Xi, Lourdas and Skala. Beautiful sightseeings are the Lake Cave of Melissani, the Cave of Drogarati, castles and monasteries. Crossed by old footsteps, the inland of Kefalonia is a great place for hiking. Actually most hiking trails are signposted and lead to abandoned villages, watchtowers, beaches and hilltops with breathtaking view to the sea.

The boat tour to Navagio and Blue Caves is the most popular in Zakynthos. Boat tours are also organized to Marathonisi, the island of the caretta-caretta. However, as this is an island where this endangered sea turtle goes to reproduce, visitors are asked to respect the region. Bus excursions around Zakynthos are also organized so that visitors see the beautiful villages and old monasteries of the inland.

Mykonos august 2017, Elia beach from Agrari
Mykonos august 2017, Agrari and Elia are located near each other, forming a huge sandy beach, 10 kilometres from the island's capital. Agrari Beach is less popular than its neighbor Elia and much calmer. They both can be reached by local bus and by taxi-boat. As with many of the beaches you approach from on high and then down a long, thin, steep road. There is a smallish cafeteria and two sets of beach loungers with shades. There are many nudists on this beach. From this beach you can walk over the rocks to the left to visit Elia beach.
