Escape to an Ionian idyll
A storied and historic island surrounded by the sparkling Ionian Sea, Lefkas lets sailors discover the famous Heptanese Islands of Kefalonia, Ithaca and Meganisi. Sheltered anchorages, calm conditions and easy mooring options make Lefkas the perfect destination for newly qualified sailors.
Lefkas features prominently in Greek mythology, and it’s easy to see why. The island’s spectacular coastline boasts white sand beaches, sheltered coves and towering cliffs in abundance. Today, Lefkas represents the perfect getaway for those tired of the hustle and bustle of city life. Explore the imposing ruins of the mediaeval Santa Maura Fortress, indulge in some of the watersports the island is famous for or simply relax on the quiet beaches.
Explore Greece’s Ionian Coast and many of the other Heptanese Islands from our base on Lefkas, including Kefalonia, Ithaca and the numerous tiny islets for which Greece is rightly known. You’ll take in the culture, cuisine and nightlife of the Ionian Coast and relax in the sun with beautiful Grecian scenery as your backdrop. The perfect island-hopping getaway.
