Ionian Sea is a yachtsman’s paradise with the gentle, calm, clear waters making it one of the safest sailing areas in the world. Sailing holidays in the Ionian Islands are ideal either for the novice or for expert sailors due to the geographical position combined with the beauty of the landscape, the many anchorages in the region, the mild climate and the existence of an international airport.
Lefkada or Lefkas Island is separated from the mainland by the narrow Lefkada canal enabling sailors to pass along the east side of the island, which has 90% of the good anchorages. Lefkas town is the main port with other harbours on the east coast including Lygia, Nikiana, Nidri and Vikho. Further south you will find Sivota Bay, Rouda bay and Vassiliki.
Off the south-east coast of Lefkas is the beautiful unspoilt island of Meganisi, with sandy beaches and famous sea-caves and therefore an exquisite area for relaxed family sailing.
The high town of Spartakhori on the island of Meganisi can easily be seen from the north and west coast and is an enchanting village, well worth visiting. Also Papanikolis cave and Vathi on the island of Meganisi are beautiful harbours.
