I just got done with a month in the Ionians and love them. If you have 7 days I'd suggest going north a little to Lefkas and Meganisi. There a row of bays on the East side of Meganisi to anchor
in and take a line ashore. We stayed two nights in Port Atheni. The restaurant with green trim was good and they did some traditional greek dancing. Nidri is a great place for shopping
and drink. If you get to the quay before 2:00pm you should be able to get in. Otherwise anchor
in Vlicho bay. The small bay on the Southeast side of Skorpios is great for swimming but you can't go on the beach further than the high water
Vathy on Ithaca is very nice also. Safe anchoring
if you arrive late and plenty of space on the quay.
generally blows in the afternoon to late evening. So, if you want to sail, you will probably need to anchor as the quays will be full. There's also no telling what direction the wind
is going to come from so look for fairly well protected bays.
If you are going to stay one night in Fiskardo, make it your last then sail along the west coast
of Kefalonia, stopping at some of the beaches. It's a long way so get an early start.
Another option is to go straight to Shipwreck
beach on Zakinthos on your first day, then to Agios Nikolaos for the night. If you have a lot of chain or a good dingy you can stop at the blue caves while passing by. Shipwreck
beach is not to be missed!! Yes, as I'm typing this I would suggest the tip of Zakinthos, head
to Ithaca, Fiskardo, then back.
