The Vounaki Marina is located directly south of Palairos on the western coast of the Greek mainland, at the foot of the Arkanika Mountains. The former Sunsail base is since 2015 operated by Neilson.
The owners deliberately chose this location as the proximity to Aktion National Airport means that the yacht harbour can be reached quickly. It is an ideal starting point for trips through...
the beautiful sailing area of the Ionian Islands.
When approaching the harbour, the extensive club resort, which houses the marina and also belongs to the Sunsail Group, serves as a navigational aid. The breakwater becomes visible once you sail closer. It is also lit at night and protects the marina from all winds. Right in front of the entrance, however, keep enough distance from the buoys used by jolly boats as the water depth here is very low.
Vounaki Marina has 70 berths, all offering the services you would expect of a modern marina. The sanitary facilities with showers and toilets are located on the eastern quay.
Fuel can be obtained at the bunker pier at the northern entrance.
Since Neilson took over the the marina, transit guets are not welcome. They want the marina just for their own fleet.
