Island Sailing Lefkada yacht charter

Also known as Lefkada, Lefkas Town is the capital of the island of Lefkas situated on the northeast coast where the island is joined to the mainland by a causeway and 50 metre swing bridge. Lefkas town, home to the Island Sailing Greek yacht charter marina base, is ideally located for both the North Ionian and South Ionian sailing areas. The cruising area is ideal for yacht charter holidays allowing you to go as far north as Corfu and as far south as Kefalonia (Cephalonia).

Lefkada is a very pleasant and friendly Greek island town built around a natural harbour with a number of richly decorated Venetian churches and is host to a number of art and cultural festivals throughout the summer. Halfway along the pedestrianised main shopping street you’ll find the attractive main square, full of cafes where you can sit and watch the world go by. As well as the more traditional Greek cafes and restaurants Lefkas town has a great selection of cosmopolitan bars and cafes. A little further out of Lefkas town is the impressive Frankish fortress of Ayia Mavra and the peaceful monastery of Faneromeni boasting beautiful views above the town.
