A mountain posing as an island, Kalamos is located right in the heart of the inner Ionian marine protected area, bathed with lucid pine trees. Sailing with a chartered monohull or catamaran from IonionSails around the island offers you an opportunity to admire its small deserted sandy and pebble beaches while floating on its turquoise and crystal clear waters. See our suggested 7 or 14 day sailing itineraries to see how easy it is to visit Kalamos while chartering from Lefkas!
One of the two settlements located on the island, this fishing village is one of the destinations that you must visit after you charter your yacht from Lefkada or Corfu, since you will definitely fall in love with it. The sense of tranquility and the peace at heart the visitor feels, are only some of the most deluging emotions one can experience.
The area is named after an old Christian chapel that was built there. You can stop sailing for a while to explore the area and to capture the moment of swimming in the picturesque background.
Asprogiali has two small, unique beaches with blue green waters. The area is surrounded by a pine forest and the view is spectacular. You will find yourself either swimming in the tremendous colours of the Ionian sea or enjoying the sunlight with an unspoiled view.
Located to the south of the island, this area has taken its name from the Venetians and is one of the favourite spots among boaters sailing in the Ionian. The scenery reminds you of a good old fashioned movie. You have dropped your anchor in green blue waters, you are totally surrounded by a pine forest and you can see only leftovers from an abandoned old village, magic!
Formikola is a unique island that if you are sailing in the Ionian is a ‘must see' stop. The island is reachable only by the sea and is isolated enough to be the home to the Mediterranean seal. If you are lucky enough you will be able to admire one up close in its natural habitat!
