Sunsail’s base at Gouvia is nestled between the sea and the rolling green hills of inner Corfu. Perfectly placed to take advantage of the Ionian sailing area, sailors can be stepping onto their yacht 15 minutes after touching down at Corfu Airport.
This area has a huge amount of variety, from the cypress-studded mountainsides and lush olive groves to the rugged coastlines, lively resorts and the secret beaches that appear at every turn. The sailing area is pretty diverse too – south of Corfu are the typical gentle conditions ideal for newly qualified sailors and family holidays, whereas to the north the wind picks up and makes for some pretty spectacular sailing.
The great beaches, terrific watersports, unbeatable nightlife and spectacular history create a sailing holiday that will be hard to forget.
