Satisfying your desire for exploration, out Two Island cruise also maintains a relaxed pace as you travel to one of Corfu’s most interesting spots. Passing by lush coastline, you arrive at Vidos Island with spectacular views of Corfu Town directly opposite. The island itself boasts a rich history – it was once Corfu’s very own Alcatraz, with prisoners transported by tunnel from the Town’s Old Fortress. Now, it is serene nature reserve with forest paths winding down to pretty beaches, and a traditional tavern where you a=can enjoy a coffee break.
Particularly worth experiencing on Vidos is the moving mausoleum dedicated to the memory of fallen Serdian soldiers who gave their lives trying to protect their Greek Allies in World War II. Our second island on the cruise is Pontikonisi, or Mouse Island. En route you will also see the palace of Mon Repos where Prince Phillip was born, and the charming chapel of Vlacherna, adorning many a Corfiot postcard. You now have time to enjoy a swim in the waters off wooden Mouse Island before your captain serves up wine and a snack.
Enjoy the leisurely return north, where the boat will stop for a further break at pretty Krouzeri where you can swim, sunbathe or enjoy a drink at the beach’s tavern.
