Leave the port of Sarande by hydrofoil headed for Greece and the island of Corfu.

This tour visits Paleokastritsa -- an area of unique natural beauty on the northwestern shore of Corfu. Rocky promontories cloaked in pine and cypress trees extend out into the sea, hiding small sandy bays and coves with crystal-clear turquoise waters glimmering under the bright sun.

Enjoy a 30-minute boat ride to the famous sea caves of Nafsika, Saint Nikolas and the Blue Eye. Here, natural geological formations, combined with the minerals in the ground and natural sunlight, give life to amazing forms, colors and optical illusions.

After your boat trip, walk uphill to visit the Byzantine Monastery of the Virgin, inhabited by a small community of monks. See their church and the small museum, and relax in the beautiful gardens.

Climbing even further up, the winding streets lead to green olive groves. You'll reach the Bella Vista viewpoint, overlooking the entire area of Paleokastritsa. Take photos before returning to Corfu town through the Valley of Ropa.

Enjoy free time in the center of Corfu's Old Town .


Wear sturdy walking or hiking shoes.Travel time to Corfu is approximately 90 minutes each way. The hydrofoil schedule varies, which may affect departure and return time of the tour.
