Ionian Islands

A Greek favourite

The Ionian Islands are clustered together just off the west coast of mainland Greece. While each island has its own personality, they all tick off great beaches, spectacular scenery and textbook Greek towns.

Corfu

Known as the Emerald Isle thanks to its lush interior, Corfu is one of Greece’s most popular holiday spots. Resort-wise, you’ve got everything from sleepy seaside towns like Acharavi, to 24-7 party resorts like Kavos.

Kefalonia

Kefalonia’s claim to fame is its Hollywood credentials – Captain Corelli’s Mandolin was filmed here back in the year 2000. And its big-screen allure is still evident today – expect to see pine-backed beaches, zig-zagging vineyards, and tree-studded hills. In terms of resorts, Skala and Lassi are the most popular, thanks to their sandy beaches and lively town centres.

Zante

Despite its small size, Zante packs a punch on the holiday front. The whole island is wrapped in soft, sandy beaches, and it offers the full spectrum of holiday resorts. You’ve got quiet spots like Alykanas, family favourites like Tsilivi, and party playgrounds like Laganas.

Corfu

From the stripes of the national flag to its sugar cube villas and sparkling seas, Greece wears a uniform of blue and white. But Corfu throws an extra colour into the mix – green. Known as the Emerald Isle, the second-largest of the Ionian Islands is covered in cypress trees, olive groves and wild flowers.

Zante

The Venetians once dubbed Zante – or Zakynthos as it’s also known – ‘The Flower of the Orient’, thanks to its lush countryside. And it’s a nickname that still rings true today. Olive groves, lemon trees and bougainvillea cover the whole island, peeking out from between rolling hills.

Kefalonia

The biggest of the Greek Ionian Islands, Kefalonia shot to fame in the Hollywood blockbuster, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. Take one look at the place and you’ll see why its scenery was deserving of the big screen. Tree-studded hills stand guard over sprawling vineyards, and honey-hued sands are kissed by turquoise waters.
