To the south of the island of Lefkada are some of the most beautiful islands of Greece – the Ionian islands of Kafalonia, Meganisi, Atokos, Kastos, Kalamos, Ithaca and Zakynthos.

Lefkada island has glorious beaches, sophisticated capital and easy accessibility – the island is linked to the mainland via small ferry bridge. The island is mostly known for the Porto Katsiki beach, Sivota fishing harbor, Vasiliki surf spot and Nidri village.

Meganissi is a picturesque island, located southeast of Lefkada. Its many deep bays combined with traditional architecture and irresistible seafood cousin, making it a preferred destination for yachtsmen. The water caves Papanikolis and Giovani are worth a visit by the boat.

Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands, with its sparkling blue waters, dazzling beaches and green mountains has been a popular destination for decades. The Venetian port of Fiskardo is the most cosmopolitan place on the island, with a port that receives many yachts every summer.

Ithaca island is full of history and beautiful beaches. This peaceful island is formed by two large peninsulas linked by a narrow isthmus. Ithaca is popular with its many fishing and diving spots. The most authentic villages for moooring are Kioni and Vathi, located into natural deep bays.

Atokos island, which, although uninhabited, is besieged by hundreds of yachts all year round because of its unique bays. It is the perfect place to spend some of your time away from noise and light. “One house bay” at the east side of the island and “Cliff bay” at the south side are the most unique places to stay at anchor in the area.
