Sailing from Lefkas
Lefkas is one of the best places to start discovering the Ionian Islands while sailing!
Lefkas is an island connected to the mainland via a small bridge.
The connection of this island with the national roadway network of Greece makes it easily accessible wherever you are, by car from Athens, by Ferry through the nearby port of Igumenitsa or by plane through the nearby airports of Corfu, Kefalonia or Preveza (Aktion Airport is only 20 mins driving distance to Lefkas.
Moreover because of its location, Lefkas (Lefkada) is also the best place to start discovering the Ionian Islands while sailing in the opal waters of the Ionian Sea.
The east section of the Ionian Sea, were Lefkas is also located, is the one that has the most islands, and the most beautiful places to visit.
World famous islands such as Kefalonia, Ithaca, and Skorpios – formerly owned by Aristotle Onassis-, Meganissi, and Zakynthos are only a few miles away from Lefkas (Lefkada).
Because of the small distance between the islands the whole East section of the Ionian Sea is weather protected and sunny, most days of the year, but also is windy enough to enjoy sailing!
For all the reasons mentioned above, the biggest Yacht Chartering Companies in the world own a main base in Lefkas and for the same reasons, IonionSails 20 years ago, decided to establish its central base here.
