Sailing Greece Kastos and Lefkas

Sailing Greece

Western Greece is the landing point when sailing from Brindisi, Taranto, Sicily (the Italian sailing areas) or the Adriatic waters of Croatia (Split or Dubrovnik) and most likely landfall is made at Corfu or the islets of Othoni, Erikousa and Mathraki are ideal. Yet the richer cruising grounds are further in the southern Ionian below Lefkas - Lefkada island.

Once through the Lefkas Canal passing Fort St. George one reaches the famous inland Sea, a rich cruising area featuring an abundance of colourful ports and incomparable bays to anchor. After snorkelling an exploring the inland you will find tavernas and restaurants (good and not so good) virtually everywhere. Another good reason to sail the Ionian is the amount of amenities, provisions just as spare parts, ice, drinking water, fuel, groceries and showers are easy to find. More in my guide to yacht charters in Greece.

Lefkas, Kastos, Kalamos & Meganisi

The main islands in this inland sea cruising area are Lefkas (Lefkada), Kastos, Kalamos and of course Meganisi. Further south the is the lovely islands of Ithaca (Ithaki) and Kefalonia (Kefallonia, Cephalonia, Kefalinia or Kefallinia). Usually this area is large and interesting enough to spend 10 days, in 2 weeks itineraries you can add the lovely island of Zakynthos or the mainland coast and Echinades islets to your yacht charters and sailing holidays in Greece.
