Ok..... despite going to San Stef many times we've only ever been on one trip. That was to Corfu Town on a boat.

What trips would people recommend?

Mathraki was good. About 30 mins each way if I recall correctly.

The new evening Sunset trip to Logas is very popular and Mackenzie would like that as its only a short journey and plenty of free time......

Not a trip as such but we got some boats from Thomas last year and went over to the far (second) island, canít remember what itís called.

Was a great afternoon out. We could do similar this year Gav, get a boat between us and make a day of it, picnic ashore etc.

Did the day trip to Mathraki with San Stef travel last year, good fun, about 25 mins on the boat, nice change of scenery and a decent taverna near the jetty. Hired a speedboat for a half day and bobbed around Paleokastritsa and neighbouring coves. Great fun although could never quite get the hang of the anchor!

Yes I think so. Harbour towards the right hand side of the island? Had some of the clearest water ive ever seen, would love to spend a day there.

We were there last year too. Also enjoyed Ericusa island. Walked all the way across it and stopped at the (only) hotel for a well- earned cold drink en route back to the harbour. They had the most comfortable sofa we'd ever sat on!

We went to Ereikoussa a few years ago and while we were having lunch there was a funeral procession driving on its way to the church.  It was a bit surreal - the coffin was on the back of a pickup truck and most mourners were on quad-bikes.

Hey Gavlos! 
Have you planned your trips yet?  We've done a few really good ones!
The Grand Island Tour is fantastic- did it a few years ago but I'm booking it for my mum and dad's birthdays this year as I know they will love it too.
Theo's Boat Trip is awesome for the kids - it's like a family friendly party boat, takes you over to the Greek mainland for an amazing BBQ on the beach with watersports etc. You then get to jump off the boat at a lagoon.  The boat journey is about 1.5 hours there and same back but it's a party atmosphere!!  Theo and Harris (his son) are what makes this trip so special but you have to book it through Thomsons. You can book direct but it ends up costing more for your own transfers.
Paxos and Anti Paxos were fab.
Corfu town by boat in the evening was great.
Hire your own boat from Noula and go round to Paleokastritsa or some of the smaller beaches.
Water Park is good - I didn't but then men and kids in our party did and loved it.

Gill  :)
