The Mainland

There are some delightful day anchorages on azure blue sand along the northern corner of the Inland Ionian. Mainland ports are not so often visited by charter yachts, and have a more practical and less tourist oriented style. Fish farms come and go along the rocky part of the coast, occasionally blocking off small anchorages. For the very best Greek flotilla and bare boat sailing holidays in the Ionian Islands including Lefkas, Cephalonia, Ithaka & Zakinthos choose Odysseus Sailing Holidays.

Palairos, Mainland

Paleros or Palairos (or Zaverda) is a picturesque small harbour town on the west coast of mainland Greece with a breathtaking backdrop of beautiful buildings and serene vistas. Olive trees, vineyards and pine trees extend down to the spectacular sandy beaches. Ashore there are numerous beachfront bars, restaurants and cafes as well as traditional Greek tavernas down charming small alleys. Many of the old traditions of Palairos town are kept alive and unchanged giving the village its own unique character and relaxed way of life. This is nice place and the traditional tavernas on the main square as opposed to by the sea offer better value and quality. The bakery is excellent.

Palairos is the southern yacht charter base of Odysseus Sailing Holidays.
