The geographic position of the island, its beauty, the many fine anchorages in the surrounding area, the mild climate and the international airport, all constitute positive factors in the promotion of sailing tourism. In a place famous since ancient times for the nautical skills of its inhabitants, you will today find one of the biggest and most beautiful yacht marinas in the Mediterranean, attracting hundreds of boats from all over the world. There are numerous yacht charter agencies in the area around the marina and also in the town of Corfu. Bookings are best made early, but it is always possible to find an available yacht even at the last minute.
The possession of a skipper’s license is essential. Charter rates vary according to the season, the type of boat and its size, but as an example we can quote the amount of 50-70 euro per person per day. If you take into account the reduction in costs of food and transportation, then it is clear how reasonable this kind of holiday can be.
