To the southwest of Lefkada, the beautiful port town of Vassiliki deep in the large bay has maintained its authentic atmosphere, which blends well with the vibrance of the quayside bars, restaurants and cafes that come alive particularly in July and August. Moor in the small harbour or alternatively, the bay to the west of the large bay of Vassiliki, close to the village Pondi is a nice anchorage.

There is a nice choice of cafe bars where you can sip a cool Frappe coffee or enjoy a summer cocktail in places like Stathis' Yacht Bar Cafe. Wonderful fresh fish caught by the local fisherman can be enjoyed in Vassiliki - The Dolphin Restaurant/Taverna or Penguins taverna on the quayside are worth a visit.

One of the larger bays in the Lefkas cruising area and also one of the windiest Vasiliki is one of the best windsurfing destinations in Europe and attracts hundreds of enthusiasts every year - the sight of hundreds of windsurfers speeding across the beautiful emerald Ionian water is spectacular! There are a couple of ATM/cash machines in Vassiliki as well as a medical centre, Post Office, a fabulous bakery and some lovely shops.
