Lefkada Sailing Guide
Charter a skippered or bareboat from Lefkas
Due to its central location in reference to the rest of the islands 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 west part of Greece. Lefkada is also the place where most of IonionSails chartering sailing yachts, monohulls 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.
Built around a crystalline cove, among turfy hills and lush green forests, the settlement of Sivota is one of the most beautiful bays of the island and one of its most popular tourist resorts. It is only by the sea that you can access its white sand beaches blending with its wild background. However harbor of Sivota is one of the most welcoming places for chartering yachts, that's why IonionSails has also one of their help stations located there.
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.
