What to expect

Take a day cruise to famous Sivota and the Blue Lagoon from Corfu, and upon your departure, admire beautiful views of the old town and its two Venetian fortresses. You will be sailing south along the Kanoni peninsula towards Plataria and Sivota with views of the famous Palace of Mon Repos, the birthplace of Prince Phillip.

Continue down the coast to Parga, the jewel on the Ionian sea, famous for its beautiful architecture and its rare physical beauty, interlaced beaches, emerald waters, and countless olive groves. You will have the opportunity to see the remains of a Venetian castle, built by the residents in the 11th century to protect them from pirates and the Turks.

Opposite the castle, at the entrance to the port, there is a small island dedicated to the Virgin Mary, with a church and several medieval Venetian and French buildings. Do not miss the chance to explore the Venetian castle, whose main building houses a photo exhibition of ancient Parga. As you might expect, the castle also offers some stunning views over Parga and the Ionian Sea. Stroll the narrow streets and enjoy lunch at a local taverna overlooking the sea, or go for a swim in one of the many beaches nearby.

Make your way back towards Corfu and drop anchor at the Blue Lagoon, a location full of legends about pirates mooring their ships in the Middle Ages. Drop anchor close to the beach and enjoy swimming in the lagoon’s exotic blue waters before sailing back to port in Corfu Town.
