Description

Admire the beautiful mainland of Greece coastline on a full-day boat cruise to Parga and Sivota from Corfu Town. Marvel at the Old Town as we set sail and admire the lush forests of the Kanoni Peninsula. Pass the palace and gardens of Mon Repos the birthplace of Prince Phillip as you sail towards Plataria and Sivota.

Heading south, parallel to the mainland, we pass the capital city of the Thesprotia region, Igoumenitsa, the small fishing village of Plataria and the Sivota Islands, where the ship enters the breathtaking cave of Sivota.

Continue down the coast to Parga, a jewel on the Ionian sea, famous for its beautiful architecture and its rare physical beauty, interlaced beaches, emerald water, and 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 traditional taverna overlooking the sea, or go for a swim off one of the many beaches.

Cruise around the islands of Sivota as you sail back to Corfu and drop anchor at the Blue Lagoon, where Arabian pirates are said to have moored their ships in the Middle Ages. Swim in the blue crystalline waters before sailing back to port in Corfu Town.
