The Ionian Islands are a region covering almost the entire archipelago of this name, located on the west coast of Greece. It includes, among others Corfu, Zakynthos, Kefalonia, Paxos, Itaka, Lefkada and many smaller, often uninhabited islets.
It is a region of great touristic importance, with a Mediterranean climate and excellent conditions for relaxation. Sandy and rocky beaches, warm sea, very good infrastructure and many opportunities to spend free time actively attract thousands of tourists every year.
The largest of the Ionian Islands is Corfu, famous for its sandy beaches and azure waters. The most important resorts here are Kerasia, Paleokastritsa, Lefkimmi and Kavos. They offer not only the possibility of sunbathing, but also diving, renting water equipment or taking boat trips. The city of Corfu, whose center is on the UNESCO list, impresses with its narrow streets, a huge fort, the ruins of the temple of Artemis and the excellent Archaeological Museum.
Zakynthos is also a very famous holiday destination. Its symbol is the Wreck Bay, which can only be reached by boat. The island's attractions also include the Blue Grottos and Laganas Bay with a sandy beach where turtles lay their eggs.
Often called the White Island Kefalonia gives the opportunity for a somewhat quieter rest. In addition to the beaches, you can see the coastal caves of Drogarati and Melissani and the 16th century castle of Agios Georges.
The Ionian Islands attract tourists of all ages and interests. There are places here for both family recreation and club madness until dawn. And all this surrounded by stunning views.
