CORFU Probably the most famous of the Ionian Islands, Corfu has a history steeped in legend, literature and art. It is also one of the most beautiful holiday destinations in Greece attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors in search of glorious sandy beaches and magnificent open waters. It follows that the primary activities around the island tend to relate to the coastline and this has led to the second largest of the Ionians becoming a magnet for private yachts and charter companies. Central to all this marine activity is the magnificent Gouvina Marina, Greece’s first privately owned facility of its kind. Situated about 6km from the town of Corfu and only 7km from the airport the marina nestles in a harbour that has served as a naval station and shipyard since the 17th century when it was recognised by seamen as being a natural link between the Mediterranean and the Adriatic. Today the well organised marina offers the highest standard marine services and facilities one could expect. It has a total capacity of 1235 berths, permanent and floating pontoons, and dry dock facilities for around 520 boats. Moorings are available for vessels up to 80 meters long and with 5.5 meters draught, for short or long term periods. Gouvina is open all year round on a 24/7 basis. The true wonder of Corfu is that the beaches are sailing are equally matched by the inland areas. Lush exotic landscapes give way to iconic Geek towns and villages. Breathtaking ruins and ancient monuments are complimented by wonderful museums and galleries. There are wonderful parks and family attractions. It is home to the world famous Jersey Zoo, once home to the late best-selling author Gerald Durrell. The town centres are vibrant and friendly filled with bustling markets and quiet squares where the ouzo flows and the food is wholesome and fresh. All this and some of the very best weather in the Med. A truly magical place Corfu may have seen a tourist boom since the sixties and seventies but against the odds it has maintained its natural charm and grace and remains one of the best family holiday destinations in the world.

Optimum Marine Surveys by John Heale
I recently used the services of Optimum Marine to carry out a survey of my vessel. Oli Byles carried out the survey and I found the service professional, informative and courteous. I would recommend this company. John Heale

Very helpful and well stocked marine store..

My friend was staying in the Marina recently and this restaurant was highly recommended. We dined there twice during our week's stay in Kontokali, the second time being my friend's birthday celebration. Not only was the food amazing, the hospitality of Sue and Alex was wonderful. Sue made a birthday cake with candles to make the evening even more special.

I would recommend you all to try this restaurant during your stay in Corfu!
