For many years seamen considered the harbour and the bay of Gouvia as a natural link between the Adriatic and the Mediterranean Sea as well as a port of call, where they could sail in, to repose, enjoying the climate and the beauties of the island.
In the 17th century Venetian seamen selected the area of Gouvia as an ideal location for creating a naval station and shipyards, remains of which have survived in the region. This tradition has been maintained until today while sailing yachts and motor boats from all over the world arrive at Gouvia Marina, enjoying the beauties of the sea and the environment, the cool breeze and the beautiful island of Corfu.

The Marina, fully organised, offering facilities and services of high standards, has been operating under the new management since 1996. The total capacity is 1235 berths, on both permanent and floating pontoons, while there are dry dock facilities for approximately 520 boats. Moorings are available for boats up to 80 meters long and with 5.5 meters draught, for short or long term periods.

The marina operates all year round on a 24-hour basis. Two green and two red lights mark the approach channel to the marina and all boats are required to call the marina on the VHF, channel 69 in order to receive instructions. The marina’s boat and personnel will provide all necessary assistance. After your arrival, you have to check in at the reception office where you will also be informed about all the details concerning your stay.
