8-DAY’S ISLAND-HOPPING IN THE NORTHERN IONIAN SEA
This part of the Ionian is often seen as the poor relation to the waters further south and the Aegean. Far from it – in Corfu and Paxos it has two beautiful islands and also a couple of interesting small mainland ports of call. Mostly we stick to the smaller waterfronts.
