In case you're fortunate enough to escape on your first day, the yacht club situated on the north side of the castle is the most recommended out of the three mooring locations around Corfu Town. You can moore with lazy lines, and once secure you can stroll up through the grounds of the castle to the Corfu Town center.
The mainland Greek fishing village of Mourtos is located across from the southern shore of Corfu, three miles south of Plataria and six miles south of Igoumenitsa. Lately it has turned into a clamoring visitor town with the little harbor now utilized as much by yachts as fishing vessels, with a quay that offers numerous tourist bars and restaurants.
Lying 25 miles north west of Preveza and 15 miles south east of Igoumenitsa, Parga is a famous and bustling tourist resort .The magnificent Venetian castle that dominates the town as well as the peninsula on which it sits also acts as a landmark upon arrival. The north west end of Ormos Valtou, the long beach that lies to the west of Parga is pretty much the only berhing option for yachts, where you can lie on anchor safely sheltered from the prevailing NW winds.
Gaios, the island's primary town, scarcely needs to strive to deserve to be called “picturesque”. The Venetian square at the edge of the turquoise bay is lined on both sides with whitewashed, cream or pink buildings. The town is sheltered by the lush islet of Agios Nikolaos, named after the monastery on it. With tavernas and cafes lining the waterfront, Gaïos has the liveliest nightlife on the island. The beautiful setting and one of a kind location of Gaïos have made it extremely popular amongst yachtsmen as well as daily tourists that come in crowds from Corfu and Mainland Greece during the high season.
Petriti is a small and quiet fishing harbor located 17 kilometres south of Corfu Town, on the south east bank of Corfu. The harbor consists of a 100 meter long sea wall expanding south from the north side of a small bay that is sheltered from the prevailing winds from the NW. There is a rocky reef southwards of the harbor that offers protection from swells during southerly winds. The external 50 meters of the breakwater is used by visiting yachts anchoring bows to or stern to.
Sayiadha is a traditionally 'Greek' harbor, situated on the mainland close to the Albanian border (actually it was once out of boundsfor the public for this very reason!) Today it is a beautiful and quiet spot to visit to replenish your water supply and test the prawns on offer from Alekos Taverna, known as the best taverna in the Ionian group.
As it is the perfect place to begin, Corfu is also a good place to wrap up. There are a lot of bars and eateries in Gouvia Town that we suggest you explore.
