Day 1. Lefkada
We start our journey by arriving at Lefkada Marina. Here we get acquainted with the yacht and the crew, we are instructed, we buy food and check in on the yacht. The city of Lefkada is the largest settlement and the capital of the Greek island of the same name. Economic and cultural center. You will get to the city of Lefkada almost immediately, as soon as you cross the bridge connecting the island with the western coast of mainland Greece. In fact, the city is the “gate” of the island of Lefkada.
Day 2. Meganisi Island
Megasini is the pearl of the Lefkadia archipelago and is rightfully considered a resort island. A unique variety of bays and beaches, an abundance of caves, traditional villages, stylish cafes and bars, the cleanest ecology, beautiful views of the entire archipelago, celebrities of all stripes on their own yachts, hospitable and incredibly cheerful residents – all this harmoniously coexists within the framework of a small island that could very soon become the Greek version of Capri or Porto Cervo. The coastline of Meganisi in the north is quite indented. There are several natural harbors and many closed bays and bays. Crystal clear water and overgrown with olives and cypresses the slopes of the mountains surrounding the bays, invariably attract hundreds of traveling yachtsmen.
Day 3. Ithaca Island
Ithaca is a small island with a mountainous terrain and comfortable bays, similar to an earthly paradise. The whole island is covered with dense forests and is unique. Due to the large number of beautiful bays and bays, snow-white sailing yachts are willingly moored here. The largest settlement of the island, as well as its capital, is the small town of Vathi, located on the hills of the narrow Molos Bay.
about. Ithaca is the birthplace of the legendary Odysseus. Many scholars claim that Odysseus’s home stood on a green hill overlooking Stavros, a fishing village located in the northern part of the island.
Day 4. Kefalonia Island
Kefalonia, the largest of the Ionian Islands, is an ideal place for nature lovers and relaxation. Colorful villages and small towns; here you will see old aristocratic mansions, as well as “modest” rural villas, and a little further – the ruins of some ancient city. Kefalonia is famous for its amazing landscape diversity, unique caves and beaches. The air of Kefalonia is clean and transparent, and the number of sunny days per year is the largest in all of Greece.
Here we will visit the Melissani cave and the cave lake created from the tears of the Nymph.
Day 5. Zakynthos Island
Zakynthos is the largest island in the Ionian group. Its soil is as fertile as the nature is beautiful: generous harvests of olives and grapes are harvested here. And in the evenings, locals hold concerts or festivals. You will be fascinated by their performance and outfits. Navagio Bay also has its own small historical landmark, which gave the bay a second name – Smugglers’ Bay. Tourists from all over the world are attracted by the huge cargo ship “Panagiotis”, dilapidated, rusting on the shore for several hundred years.
Visit to the beautiful bay of Navagio with a sunken ship.
Day 6. Lefkada Island
Returning to Kefalonia, we will definitely visit the fishing village of Fiskardo, surrounded by greenery, with a beautiful bay and houses that have preserved the old architectural style. All the buildings of Fiskardo represent the real original architecture of the Ionian Islands, the houses have been restored and are used as hotels, and on the ground floors there are entirely souvenir shops and taverns. Tables are hospitably laid out on the embankment near the water, and along the entire village there are endless yachts, boats and again yachts and boats.
