Kefalonia and Lefkada


Ionian Islands of Greece


Lefkada and Kefalonia are two of the seven main islands of Greece in the Ionian Sea, west of the mainland.  Lefkada is technically no longer an island, as it's now connected to the mainland via a causeway.  Kefalonia, the better-known of the two, lies to its southwest.  In this outstanding drone video, you'll get an aerial view of some beautiful spots on the two islands, both of which bear the marks of centuries of Venetian rule. Kefalonia's Myrtos beach and Melissani Lake; and Lefkada's Cape Doukato, Kathisma, and Porto Katsiki.

Aerial Tour of Zakynthos


Zakynthos 2019


Check out this stunning drone video of the Greek island of Zakynthos, compliments of contributor Harispomonis.  Sometimes called Zante, it's one of the seven main islands that line Greece's western coast on the Ionioan Sea.  Zakynthos is the third largest and southernmost of the seven, lying more or less due west from the Greek capital Athens.  It's not only a major tourist destination but a place of considerable cultural significance, having earned mention in Homer's epics the Iliad and the Odyssey.

Beautiful Corfu


Corfu 2019 - DJI Mavic 2 Pro by mrgilchen


Mrgilchen created this beautiful drone video of Corfu, the northernmost and perhaps best-known of the seven main islands which lie off the western coast of Greece in the Ionian Sea.  Once known as Kerkyra, Corfu is repeatedly referenced in some of the most important stories of Greek mythology, and it later played a key role in the Peloponnesian War.  In early modern times, the island was regarded as a bulwark against Ottoman expansionism and became one of the most heavily fortified places in Europe. 

Lefkada, Ithaca, and Kefalonia

Contributor 11 Shots Media created this brilliant 60 second aerial tour of three of Greece's islands in the Ionian Sea to the west of the mainland.  The islands shown in are Lefkada, Ithaki, and Kevalonia.  These are the central islands of the group, which also includes Corfu, Paxi, Zakynthos, and Kythira.  As you'ss see in this video, these islands combine aspects of Greece's Aegean islands to the east with those of Italy to the west; in large measure, this reflects the period during which the Ionian Islands were under Venetian control.  

Kythira: Southernmost Ionian


Kythira (From Above)


The Greek island of Kythira is considered to be part of the Ionian Islands group, although it sits a good ways south of the other six main islands.  It's located south of the Peloponnese Peninsula, essentially between the Ionian and Aegean Seas.  In ancient times, the island played a pivotal role in the decades-long struggle between Sparta and Athens which is famously known as the Peloponnesian Wars.  If you watch this drone video of Kythira from fakefakettv, you will agree this was a prize worth fighting for! 

Drone Tour of Lefkada


Summer Diaries


Former Drone Video of the Week Finalist Aerial_Greece brings us this excellent drone video from the Greek island of Lefkada.  One of the main islands off of Greece's western coast on the Ionian Sea, Lefkada is connected to the Greek mainland by causeway.  At the :10 mark, you'll see the first shot of Porto Katsiki Beach, one of Greece's most famous beaches, which lies on the southwestern part of the island.  Other locations featured in the video include Kathisma Beach (north of Porto Katsiki) and Cape Lefkada Lighthouse.

Check out this drone video of the quaint village of Lakka on the Greek island of Paxos, compliments of Drone AéroView.  It lies on the north side of the island (which is also sometimes called Paxi), the smallest of the seven Ionian Islands west of the mainland.  The stunning little port town sits on a nearly circular-shaped bay, on which sit Kanoni and Harami Beaches.  Lakka is a popular spot for sailing, power boating, wind surfing, snorkeling, and other sundry aquatic recreations.  

Zythera: Southernmost Ionian Island


Drone footage of Agia Pelagia Kithira Greece


The Greek island of Zythera (Kythira) is something of an oddity.  It's considered part of the Ionian Islands group but lies far to the south of the other six main Iionian Island, near the southern tip of the Peloponnese Peninsula.  Zythera was a key battleground during the Peloponnesian War of the 5th century BC, and (like the other Ionian Islands) was part of the Venetian Empire for most of the Middle Ages.  In this drone video, you'll get an aerial view of the town of Agia Pelagia on the northern side of the island.  

Marathonisi: Turtle Island




Contributor and pilot Harispomonis brings us this beautiful 4k drone video of Marathonisi, tiny islet in the Ionian Sea.  It sits off the coast of Zakynthos, one of the seven main islands which makes up this territory of Greece.  Marathonisi is also known as "Turtle Island", in reference to its role as a nesting place for a certain species of loggerhead turtle.  Zakynthos is one of the southern Ionian islands, and it's situated just west of the Peloponnese Peninsula on the southern part of the Greek mainland.

Kalamos is one of the lesser known Greek islands in the Ionian Sea, west of the Greek mainland.  For administration purposes, it's now considered part of the island of Lefkada, which lies to its northwest.  Covering only about 25 square km (around 10 square mi.) its wintertime population is about 500.  Most of its population is situated in and around the harbor town of Kalamos, on the eastern side of the island.  Seen here in this drone video by Colinos, the town's population swells considerably during the summer months.

In this video, contributor Badios and aerial acrobat Katerina Soldatou take their act to one of the most well known beaches in Greece's Ionian Islands.  It's called Nevagio Beach, and it's on the island of Zakynthos.  Partially secluded, the beach is also known as "Smuggler's Cove", in reference to a ship which wrecked near Navagio in 1980 and had been rumoured to be carrying contraband.  Nevagio Beach distinguished itself by making the list of the Forbes Top 50 Beaches in the world in 2017.  

Shipwreck on Zakynthos


World's famous shipwreck (Greece)


Top contributor and pilot harispomonis created this stunning drone video of one of the world's top beaches.  It's called  Navagio Beach, aka Smuggler's Cove, and it lies on the north side of the Greek island of Zakynthos in the Ionian Sea.  It's famous in part because it's the home of the wreck of the MV Panagiotis, which ran aground here in 1980 after allegedly being chased by the Greek navy for suspected smuggling.  It became even more famous in 2018, when Lonely Planet named it the world's #1 beach.

Contributor and DVA winner druno created this epic selfie from one of the world's most famous beaches: Navagio Beach, on the Greek island of Zakynthos.  Situated on the southern side of this bit of paradise in the Ionian Sea, the cove was named as the #1 beach in the 2018 edition of Lonely Planet's World's Best Beaches survey.  Navagio Beach is sometimes called Shipwreck Cove in reference to its famous landmark: the wreck of the MV Panagiotis, which grounded here in 1980 under somewhat mysterious circumstances. 

Zakynthos: The Flower of the Levant


Blue Waters Blue Sky


Zakynthos is frequently considered to be the most beautiful of the seven main Greek islands in the Ionion Sea.  Mentioned by Homer in his Odyssey and Iliad epics, the island was called the Flower of the Levant by the Venetians during the Middle Ages when the island was under their control.  In this drone video by harispomonis, you'll get a bird's eye view of the island, including its famous shipwreck beach as well as the two tiny islands of Maratonisi and Kalonisi which sit off its southern shores.

Shipwreck in Zakynthos


Navagio 'Shipwreck' Beach, Greece. Simply Spectacular!


Behold this spectacular drone video from contributor and pilot Jetofisher of one of the world's most well known shipwrecks.  In 1980, the freighter MV Panagiotis ran aground in the waters off of Zakynthos, one of the Greek islands in the Ionian Sea.  The ship was rumored to be carrying contraband.  Its final resting place is on a beautiful cove on Nevagio Beach, which is nicknamed "Smugglers Cove".  Zakynthos (also called Zante) is the southernmost of the group of Greek islands to the west of the mainland.

Zakynthos is Greek island located to the west of the mainland, in the Ionian Sea.  Covering an area of about 400 square km (150 square mi) it was a center of Greek resistance to Nazi rule during World War II.  Now it is a popular tourist destination due to its pristine beaches (including the legendary Shipwreck Beach) and deep blue waters.  Contributor Fabreezy traveled to Zakynthos with a DJI drone and created this spectacular aerial tour of this beautiful place, the third largest of the Ionian Islands.  

Zakynthos: Shipwreck Beach, Keri, and More


Desde Los Cielos Aún Impresiona Más (From the Heavens it Impresses Even More)


Take in these marvelous drone views of the Greek island of Zakynthos, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot Ilovedrone.  Much of the video was shot around Navagio ("Shipwreck") Beach, which owes its name to the freighter which ran aground in 1980.  The beach has become one of the most iconic locations in Greece.  You'll also see other sights such as the village of Keri, on the island's southern side.  Zakynthos is the southernmost of the seven main Greek islands which lie off its western coast in the Ionian Sea.

Keri, Zakynthos


Prepare yourself to see one of the most amazing sunsets of your life!


Check out this stunning drone video from the Greek island of Zakynthos, compliments of contributor harispomonis.  The area filmed is around the town of Keri, which lies on a peninsula at the southern end of the island.  Zakynthos is the southernmost of the seven main islands which make up the official Ionian Islands region of Greece.  The third-largest of the islands in terms of land area, Zakynthos lies just west of the mainland land form known as the Peloponnese Peninsula.   It's sometimes also known as Zante.

DVA winner Druno and his photogenic companion put together this magnificent piece from the Greek island of Zakynthos in the Ionian Sea.  Filmed with drone, ground, and underwater cameras, the video opens with some epic footage of Navagio Beach; when you see the video, you'll understand why it's nicknamed Shipwreck Beach.  Lying on the northwestern part of the island, it's consistently ranked one of the world's top beaches.  Another highlight is the tiny satellite island of Marathonisi, off the main island's southern coast.  

Corfu by Drone


Amazing Corfu 2020


For a first upload to AirVuz, new contributor brings us this fantastic drone video from the Greek island of Corfu.  The video opens with some great top-down shots of the coast of the island, which lies west of the mainland in the Ionian Sea.  At about the 1:24 mark, you'll see Cape Drastis, on the northwestern coast of the island.  Starting at 1:53, you'll see the Byzantine hilltop fortress of Angelokastro, on the island's western coast.  Other shots include some of Corfu's hidden beaches, marinas, and offshore islets.

The Mountains of Corfu

While the Greek island of Corfu is well known for Venetian architecture and imposing fortresses of its coastal settlments, its interior is much less explored.  In this drone video by AirVuz contributor Laurent Paris, you'll see the island's mountainous interior.  Corfu's main mountain range runs across the northern part of the island, which faintly resembles a tadpole and is widest at its northern "head".  The main mountain of this range is Pantokrator, which has a summit elevation of just under 3k ft. above sea level (around 900 m).  

Corfu's Main City


Corfu Town, Greece


Corfu is the second largest (and northernmost) of the Greek Ionian Islands and its most well known.  The island's main city (also called Corfu) has played an important role throughout ancient and modern Greek history, and it is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.  Corfu was a shooting location in the 13th James Bond movie For Your Eyes Only (1981) starring Roger Moore, at times standing in for Albania.  In this video, Dronakias gives us a bird's eye view of this cultural gem in the Ionian Sea.  

Corfu's Cape Drastis

Fly along with contributor and drone pilot Miklos for an aerial tour of the storied Greek island of Corfu.  Corfu is probably the best known of the group of islands west of the Greek mainland in the Ionian Sea.  The video features footage from the following locations, all of which are on the island's northern side: the Byzantine castle of Angelokastro, built atop a steep cliff; Mount Pantokrator, Corfu's highest mountain;  Almiros beach, near the town of Acharavi; and Cape Drastis, a promontory off of Corfu's northwestern coast.

The Fortifications of Corfu


Corfu - Flight over Kerkyra vol.2


The Greek island of Corfu in the Ionian Sea was one of the jewels of the Venetian Empire from the late Middle Ages through the time of Napoleon.  During this time, the island came under siege from the Ottoman Empire on multiple occasions, and Corfu was seen as a bulwark of Christianity in its bitter fight for mastery of the Mediterranean Sea against the forces of Islam.  In this drone video, you will get a bird's eye view of the area around the so-called "Old Fortress" of Corfu, on the eastern side of the island.  

Aerial Views of Lefkada


This is Lefkada!


Check out this stunning aerial tour of the Greek island of Lefkada, compliments of contributor and drone pilot Cata_Alex.  Lefkada is one of the larger of the seven main islands which sit to the west of the Greek mainland in the Ionian Sea.  It's the only one of the six which is physically connected to the mainland, via a causeway.  Closely connected to the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite, the island was later the subject of a centuries-long tug-of-war between  the Venetian and Ottoman Empires in the Middle Ages and Early Modern periods.

Kefalonia is the largest of the seven main islands that lie in the Ionian Sea west of mainland Greece.  The so called Seven Islands (Heptanese) constitute one of the most culturally distinctive regions of Greece; they were under control of the Venetian Empire for hundreds of years while the rest of modern Greece was part of the Ottoman Empire.  Contributor and pilot Georgetsivrassg used a Mavic Pro 2 to create this tour of Kefalonia, featuring footage of  Atheras, Lixouri, Lepeda, Xi Beach, and Petanoi.

Paxi by FPV


Paxi Island Greece - From a different perspective


AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot Sr. Tony used a combination of a DJI Mavic Pro drone and an FPV drone to create this highly compelling video of Paxi, Greece.  Paxi is one of the seven major Greek islands in the Ionian sea, which separates Greece from southern Italy and Naples.  The video begins with some beautiful Mavic footage of the island's main harbor, then cuts to some epic FPV footage.   This magnificent island is the smallest of the seven, which also include Corfu and Lefkada.

Corfu from Above




Visitors to the Greek Ionian Island of Corfu often remark on the similarities to parts of Italy, notably Venice.  There is a good historical reason for that; for over four centuries, strategically situated Corfu was the jewel in the crown of the Venetian Empire.  The fortress-island withstood two epic sieges by the Ottoman Empire in 1537 and 1716, in both cases rallying large pan-European interest in keeping the island out of Muslim hands.  Check out historic Corfu from above in this drone video by gkoutanoudisg.
