Corfu Island

Thursday, 04 July 2019 05:46
Corfu Island Known as the Emerald Isle, Corfu has two hundred kilometers of coastline with long golden, sandy and white pebble beaches and is among the most beautiful of all the Greek islands. With its fascinating landscape of vibrant wildflowers and slender cypresses rising out of shimmering olive groves, surrounded by turquoise waters, it's easy to see why Corfu first attracted the British holidaymaker to Greece and why it is still so popular today. The island has something for almost everyone! Its charming capital, Corfu Town, is an elegant place with fine examples of Venetian architecture. The west coast is famous for its long sandy beaches while the inland villages still preserve a life little changed over hundreds of years. The north coast has long beaches, while the north-east of the island is probably the least built upon, with winding roads leading up to Mount Pantokrator and down to pebbly coves with crystal clear water. To the south the landscape is flatter and the ubiquitous olive groves abundant. Corfu is Greece's western gateway and entrance to the Adriatic. This enviable position is one of the main reasons why it feels more 'Western' than most other parts of Greece. Almost 500…

Monday, 20 May 2019 05:45
Athens Marina Alimos Close to the Greek capital of Athens lies the largest marina in the country - Alimos marina - , numbers over 1000 berths, with a huge influence over the local infrastructure that since it was build, it has become a city in its own. General Info of Athens Marina Alimos and Kalamaki Kalamaki is a big suburb of the Greek capital city of Athens, located to the southeast of the city’s harbor; to what is generally considered “local territory” not a yacht charter per se. However, you will be surprised to find here one of the biggest – if not the biggest – marina in Greece, Alimos Marina.Being a suburb of a city and not a resort, the marina and the neighboring region were not build with the needs of yacht charter visitors in mind so some of the sailors mooring here will not find it to their high standards. Alimos Marina Map Travel & Arrival The advantage to being part of the city of Athens is the short transfer time from the Athens International Airport (some 45 minutes) with the added benefit of the airport shuttle making a stop exactly in front of the marina, which…
