Sunsail Greece

The shimmering, mystical Ionian is where it all started for us, back in 1974, and has been calling to sailors for thousands of years. An intriguing and enchanting history surrounds this sun-baked region, filled with secluded beaches and storied islands.

With sailors returning time and time again to these iconic cruising grounds, our guide to the Ionian will reveal why these islands always stand the test of time.
