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.

XL Creations

XL Creations used a Zenmuse X camera mounted to a DJI Inspire 1 drone to create this epic aerial video of Kefalonia, the largest of Greece's Ionian Islands.  Some scholars believe that Kefalonia was the land of Attica in Homer's Odyssey, although this remains speculative.  The video contains bird's eye views of some of the island's most well known sights, including Myrthos Beach, Fiscardo, Melissani Cave, Argostoli, The Venetian Castle Ruins, and more.

Contributor and drone pilot 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 (Ithaca), 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 and the islands of southern Italy to the west.

Paxi Island Greece - From a different perspective


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.

Adventures in Zakynthos, Greece


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 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.

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.

A day in Paradise , Lefkada - Porto Katsiki Beach


Manolok used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to make this stunning aerial video of Lefkada, one of Greece's seven major Ionian Sea islands.  Lefkada is the closest island to the mainland, and in fact is now connected to the island via a causeway.  Most of the video is shot at Porto Katsiki Beach, which sits on a mini-peninsula extending from the southwest portion of the island.  There is no lodging at the beach, so much of the traffic is from boats and yachts.

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.

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.  It's 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.

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.  Instead, 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.  If you watch this drone video of Kythira from fakefakettv, you will agree this was a prize worth fighting for!

Behold this spectacular drone video from 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.

Check out this drone video from a beautiful spot on the Greek island of Corfu.  Corfu is the best-known amongst the group of seven main islands which lie to the west of mainland Greece in the Ionian Sea.  The video was shot over Cape Drastis, a peninsula which juts out from the northwestern part of the island.  The videos shows the beauty of the cliffs along the Corfu coastline as well as the torquoise waters of the Ionian Sea, which is considered an extension of the Mediterranean.
