Would appreciate any advice
on where to start plus any ideas for a marina as a base.
I've not seen many calm waters and coves in the Ionian
side of Greece at least. It's not like the Balererics where you can't pee in a direction without hitting a sheltered anchorage. Most in Greece are open to the weather
, open to the swell or both, and are usually over 10ms deep with limited swing room. When a southerly comes in it's even worse. Even the town quays are well protected.
It's not blessed with a massive amount of marinas either. Afterall it's a small country. The people are wonderful, and the scenery is great but it does have it's downsides.
