Meeting Point
Corfu Yachts berths are to the right of the marina entrance. Please go directly to the Corfu Yachts office, where our briefing will be done and then we are going to proceed to the check in of your yacht.

The Marina
Gouvia Marina is situated in the lovely, green Gouvia Bay at Kontokali. The taxi ride from the airport to the marina takes about 20 minutes and costs approx. 20 Euros. There are public sanitary facilities within the marina.

In Corfu Yachts berths there are mooring lines. When returning, go stern-to or bows-to and DO NOT USE YOUR ANCHOR!

Water and Fuel
Water on the pier available, no charge. Fuel Station inside the marina, there is also small trucks delivering on the pier. Also appointment can be fixed upon request.

Inside the Marina there is a big Super Market with a variety of products. If you prefer, you can go shopping at the supermarket, outside of the marina which we do not recommend due to the problem of the transportation. In the Marina the delivery is gratis.

Restaurants, taverns, bars, cafes, tourist shops and an abundance of other stores are inside the marina or within a short walk of the marina in Gouvia or Kontokali.
