Lefkada Island

Island









Lefkada is a large island in the Ionian Sea connected to the mainland by a long causeway. West coast beaches like Porto Katsiki and Egremni feature sheer cliffs and turquoise waters. The east coast is known for its traditional villages, including the seaside resort of Nydri. The southern coast near Vassiliki is more windy and attracts kite and windsurfers.

Lefkas

marina is large, and with good facilities ( although fuel and supermarkets are expensive). If you can shop in town to provision. Lots of bars with free wifi in marina. good-ish showers (50 cents from marina office for token). -ve: many people coming and going on change over days all night long with wheeled cabin bags on walkways= not much sleep. Also marina frees are steep

Skorpios Charter Ltd

We have been on 4 excellent holidays with this amazing friendly company. The yachts are well presented. The staff are all magnificent.

Nydri

This place is a little bucket and spade and a popular tourist high street and quayside. However, we found the restaurants to offer great service and quality.

Lefkas

A short trip from Preveza airport and voila, we found ourselves in the heart of this sailing city. Boats everywhere, a large range of charter companies, some wonderful restaurants and a friendly supermarket...that delivers to your boat!!! Amazing!

The harbour was buzzing with bars and music until late.
