Lefkada Sailing Guide
Charter a skippered or bareboat from Lefkas
Due to its central location in reference to the rest of the islands of the Ionian Sea and the accessibility granted by a floating bridge, Lefkada is the ideal place to serve as a starting and ending point for the exploration of the western part of Greece. Lefkada is also the place where most of Ionion Sails chartering sailing yachts and catamarans are based.
After you get on board on your skippered or bareboat chartering yacht, if you choose to sail to the south, the small fish harbor of Nikiana is the first bay you can moor. Opt for it if you wish to enjoy peace and quiet or if your ideal meal is made up of fish and shellfish.
The face of the cosmopolitan identity of Lefkada, Nidri divides the east coastline into two. Its main pedestrian street and its seaside promenade host a plethora of restaurants and cafes as well as souvenir shops, catering for the tastes of every visitor.
Famous for its favorable winds for the lovers of windsurfing, Vasiliki is the largest bay in the southern part of Lefkada. The ideal spot for dining, entertainment and shopping in the alleys that make up the heart of the village.
Poros is located in the Southeast of Lefkada. Its transparent waters with the white pebble beach make the bay a perfect spot for swimming. Well protected from south winds it is a great option for relaxing and has multiple eating and shopping options nearby.
Porto Katsiki is among the most beautiful beaches on the island. Located in the southwest part of Lefkada it can offer you the serenity of the Ionian sea with the wild background of white cliff scenery.
Among the most popular beaches of the Mediterranean, the 2km beach of Egremni will offer you spectacular views. On one side it is surrounded by a cliff, while on the other side the landscape is filled by the vastness of the sea.
