Lefkada is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea, connected to the mainland by a 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. In the north, Lefkada town is the island's gateway and capital. Vassiliki, in the south, attracts windsurfers.

Lefkas Marina

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

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!

Lefkada
5.0

Lefkas marina is huge and a little sterile, it feels like an American parking lot, or a cinema complex. However we found all the necessary facilities, but took a short walk into town to find a cheaper supermarket.

It's a bit messy... not what you would expect from a pretty Greek town. A bit on the run down side, but at the same time there is a rustic feeling about the town. Nice little taverns on the side of the marina. Locals friendly. Just a bit messy.

First night and the team at Sunsail have checked us in, done the paperwork, and seen to a couple of niggles in the boat with no fuss. A great start to the trip.

Sunsail Yacht Charter

Overall the Sunsail lefkas team were fine. Friendly, helpful and generally nice people. We did have a couple of simple issues.... like not offering us shower tokens upon arrival which messed us up early the next morning. The floatila lead also took it upon himself to come on board without us knowing to move cables and ropes around. We were bareboat so not cool. A bit of attitude followed from him after, but dealt with. We seemed to keep going to the same places as the Sunsail floatila, so difficult to avoid and do our own thing. It would be better to let us know the floatila route... of we could have asked too.
