Ionian Sea is a fascinating district of Greece.

If you are now searching your destination for summer vacation in 2018, why not thinking about island hopping in the Ionian islands? This opportunity can offer you a once in a lifetime experience. If you are the type of traveller, who wants to spend the whole day in the hotel relaxing, don't proceed to this article. But if you look to live an adventure and see something totally different, island hopping is your chance. And Greek Island Hopping in the Ionian Sea has some really cool spots to offer!

Myrtos in Kefalonia

When you see Myrtos from the street above, it is love at first sight. The long sandy beach with the turquoise waters, the golden sand and the steep cliffs, looks like hidden in the arms of the cove. Everyone makes a stop to photograph this unique landscape before going down to sunbathe and swim. Myrtos is not the only asset of Kefalonia. But it is definitely its greatest!

Bungee jumping in Shipwreck Beach

Words are not enough to describe the beauty of this inaccessible by car beach in Zakynthos, The waters, the sand, the shipwreck in the middle of the beach, the scenery that reminds of a painting. But Shipwreck Beach is not only a stunning beach, one of the most photographed in Greece or maybe its trademark together with Acropolis. It is also a base jump for the lovers of extreme sports. And guess what. Is there a better photo to take there than yourself jumping in the endless blue?

Karetta karetta in Zakynthos

For the lovers of the wildlife, Zakynthos is an exquisite place. It is the island, and especially Laganas Beach and Marathonissi, where the rare species of sea turtle karetta karetta lives and lays its eggs. There are some spaces on the beaches that are protected, without sunbeds and umbrellas, but the most fascinating fact is that you can take the boat in Laganas Beach and see the sea turtles swim carefree. From my personal experience, this was the cutest thing I have ever done during my summer vacation. 

Emerald sea waters in Paxoi

Paxoi is the small island on northern Aegean Sea that impresses -in addition to other reasons- for its emerald sea waters. Yes, they are emerald, not blue! Voutoumi is one of the tropical beaches in Paxoi, where the white sand meets the crystal waters and the sun creating a landscape that makes you feel like spending your holidays in Hawaii.

Old town in Corfu

It is a UNESCO World Heritage. It is maybe the most beautiful town in Greece. It has the aura of Italy by the Greek coastline. Just wander around the Italian-style neoclassical mansions, the historical sites of the Venetian past and the narrow paved streets with the sounds of the Philharmonics. Corfu Old Town is a legend, and you will understand it only if you visit it and feel its aristocratic elegance.

Canal d' Amour in Corfu

Channel of Love (Canal d' Amour) in Corfu, near Sidarion, is an idyllic area with rock formations that create stunning coves and canals. According to the tradition, couples, who swim in the canal, will get married soon. Don't you want to take your other half and confirm this myth?
