General info about the island Lefkada

Lefkas Island is one of the most popular locations in the Ionian Sea, on Greece's west coast, connected to the mainland by a narrow causeway and also a floating bridge. In the north part of the island the yacht charter tourist can find the city of Lefkas (Lefkada in Greek), which has a strong tourist tradition. The town acts as prefecture and capital city to the region which bears the same name, making it the most important on the island, and not just for yacht charter visitors. Incidentally, it's also the largest town on the island.

How to travel to Lefkas

Travelling is made easy for any yacht charter group due to the proximity of the Aktion National Airport, a 20-minute ride by car. This airport has permanent flights from Olympic Air and Air Berlin, but you'll find that during the summer months it also gets flights from Austrian Airlines, Transavia, Sky Airlines and Viking Airlines.

There is also bus access available from Athens and a marina which offers plenty of transit berths for yacht charter visitors coming in by water. Ferry runs can be made to neighboring Nydri and then take a bus back to Lefkas.

Navigation approaching Lefkas from the North

If you hired your boat in another harbor and appraoch Lefkas sailing coming from the North, you need to find the entrance to the canal that cuts through the damm. Once you are in the canal, you need to wait until the bridge moves aside, so you can pass with your boat. The town of Lefkas and its Marina is situated around 1 mile south of the bridge.

What to do in Lefkas town

Many of the yacht charter crews visiting Lefkas say the canal and Gyra are one of the most beautiful parts of town, the Gyra being a long narrow strip of white sand which borders the crystal blue lagoon. This part of the town is also the perfect place to visit if you're into bird watching as herons, swans and wild ducks and geese all nest here. Other places of interests include the archeological museum, the folklore museum and the museum of photographs where you can find lovely souvenirs of the sunny yacht charter resort and other places on the island. You'll also appreciate the Santa Maura Castle and the numerous monasteries scattered throughout town, some very old.
