All about Gulet Rentals in the Ionian Islands
Perhaps the best advantage of a gulet rental in the Ionian Islands, is that fact that everyone is where they want to be. The kids are on and off deck jumping in the sea, those relaxing in the shade on deck with a glass of wine don’t want to move, anyone with itchy feet can explore the nearest village or town and the underwater world curios George’s are in the Ionian Sea bottoms up! Travel with a group of friends or family and discover the extraordinary coastlines and beaches of the Ionian islands such as Corfu and Lefkas.

Itinerary Ideas for the Ionian Islands
You might already have a good idea of a sailing route or the places you would like to visit, but allow us to point out a few beaches and favourite hotspots.
Another advantage of a boat rental is being able to access many beaches. Beaches like Myrtos Beach in Kefalonia are simply heaven, yet not as accessible by road. In Lefkas, Porto Katsiki Beach is a dream and in Corfu, there are plenty of beaches for spending the day in the sun, such as Ipsos Beach, Arillas Beach and Barbati Beach.
In Corfu, you can visit the Museum of Asian Art and explore the many shops and boutiques in town. There is also a 14th century fortress, the Palaio Frourio, with a nearby lighthouse where you can view the fortress and sea in all their glory.
