The islands offer varied landscapes with turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and a diversity of hilly slopes. Within the region you can enjoy 26 different hiking trails as you explore and discover each island. Kefalonia and Kefkada are great places to go hiking and so is the island of Ithaka, less developed than the neighbouring Corfu.

Top 7 travel tips in the Ionian Islands
We recommend you don’t overlook Lefkas as it would be a shame you’d miss the most wonderful and unspoiled scenery with sparkling, translucid waters. Lefkas is one of the only Greek islands you can drive to as it is linked to the mainland by a narrow causeway. Laid-back vibes and a charming island to spend some time amongst the timeless villages, a rugged coastline and old olive groves. Discover its little coves and beaches, sometimes full of windsurfers and surfers from every corner of the world.2. Visit the exotic Kefalonia
In the heart of the Ionian Sea, the island of Kefalonia is one of the most beautiful Greek Islands of the Ionian group. Kefalonia is one of those picture-perfect destinations that becomes even more stunning when you see it with your own eyes. The incredible beauty of this island has captivated film directors and “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin” was shot here. The crystal clear beaches and the indigo bays are equally famous and its food thrills the most demanding palates. Visit the lovely villages of Argostoli, Sami and Assos too.3. Dreaming of visiting Corfu?
Located in the north of the Ionian Sea, the island of Corfu is a cosmopolitan and multicultural island where to enjoy the glorious past of its imposing palaces and old mansions. If you are interested in culture, you can visit the museums of the island. Explore the corners of amazing and picturesque fishing villages, discover the verdant islets and take in the incredible landscapes. The beaches of course will take you to paradise the minute you step on them! Enjoy Corfu at its best!4. Zakynthos
Zakynthos is a popular island destination amongst tourists. The southern and southeastern coastline are areas that draw in most of the tourism. But there are a few remote areas also in the southwest, Keri and Limni Keriou, more relaxed and slow paced locations. The island is home to a forested wilderness and lovely rural villages limited by the rugged cliffs ending in sparkling, translucid waters.5. Ithaca: Explore the most mythical island
Every visitor falls in love with this beautiful island. The Greek mythology talks about Cyclops and lotus eaters. It’s a fantastic story that ends in Ithaca, where Odysseus finally returns home. Apart from its mythological background, Ithaca boasts a laid-back vibe, lush green vegetations and emerald waters making it one of the most stunning islands for relaxation. Find a spot in the lovely beaches of Filiatro, Sarakiniko and Agios Ioannis to lay down for the day, take romantic walks along the promenade, hike the paths along the island and indulge in seafood and fresh fish at the traditional tavernas. Enjoy Ithaca and create everlasting memories!6. Try the local cuisine
The rural and urban cooking of each island is a tiny but important piece of the Greek cuisine. Everybody knows the most popular recipes including moussaka, tzatziki, Greek salad, stuffed vine leaves, baklava. Beyond those recipes, each region has its own specialty influenced by the proximity to the sea, the fertile land and the fresh local produce. The Ionian cuisine, influenced by Venetian occupation, boasts a variety of tasty dishes. Try Corfu’s pastitsada, beef or cockerel stewed with pasta and a spicy tomato sauce. Indulge yourself in some Peppery ladotyri cheese and nougat from Zakynthos or delicious lentils and salami from Lefkas. Fill up your glass with some Kefalonia’s dry white Robola and smooth Verdea on Zakynthos to wash down every bite you take or sip of Ouzo liquor after your meal.7. Practice some water sports
The crystal clear and turquoise waters of the Ionian Islands invite you for a dip anytime of the day but enjoying the waters of the Ionian Sea can also be done by practising your favourite water sports. Enjoy a ride on the banana boat, try some jet skiing, improve your kite-surfing skills or set on sail to explore the beaches and islands around.
