The only"good marina" is Gouvia, but that's not why you come to the Ionian
. On the mainland, you can anchor
at Valtou near Parga. Can be hectic with speedboats towing kids
around. The ferryman will take you to Parga from your boat for a fee.
Sivota has some good anchorages
. The quay is good but rolls a lot with the prevailing NW. The tavernas etc are good. Plataria is getting busy. Plenty of places to eat. Saghiada if you draw less than 2m is usually quiet. The fish
tavernas are great. North of Corfu, Agni is a good anchorage. The tavernas are good and have lazylines. Agios Stephanos is a good anchorage and the tavernas are classy. Above Stephanos there are several small bays with good anchorage but totally undeveloped. Kassiopi has room for 5 boats; forget it except the sailing in the open sea is excellent. Stay at NAOK in Corfu. Radio
ahead on 62 ? or email
for a place. 500m from old Corfu town. Megayacht hang out there
The best time to sail is between 3 and 8. The best time to get a mooring
against a quay is11am.Conflict of interest here. It might not be too crowded. A lot of people go home to avoid the heat of July and August and then come back in September October.
