Admire the fabulous landscape on the island of Kefalonia, take a photo against the backdrop of an amazing sunset on the island of Meganisi, visit the homeland of the Homeric hero Odysseus - the island of Ithaca, swim in the bay surrounded by white stone cliffs on the island of Lefkada - all this is possible on a unique cruise to the Ionian Islands of the Mediterranean!
Our sailing cruise started on Lefkas island; we sailed away on the morning, after we filled the yacht with the required provisions, food and drinks. The closest destination was the small islet of Meganissi, 2 hours to from the South from the port of Lefkas.
It was a calm introduction to the experience of sailing! Later we sailed to the famous Paxos island. We crossed again the Lefkas canal and exited from its northern end. We sailed further north, first to the small island of Antipaxoi, 29 miles far from Lefkas.
We anchored by the east coast of Antipaxoi, just after the small port of the island. We used a line ashore to keep us by the beautiful rocks.It is a very picturesque and romantic place, on the equally beautiful island of Paxos.
We prepared dinner on board based on local ingredients and vegetables, which we found really delicious! Later we enjoyed few drinks in the cozy bars at the port.
We sailed early morning for the island of Kefalonia and the famous port of Fiscardo. The distance is 52 miles or about 7-8 hours, so we started before sunrise to catch the day from the start.
We arrived to beautiful Kefalonia in the afternoon and had a swim in a cove just above Fiscardo, before we enter the port, around 4pm. Again, we found one of the last spots in the port, since it’s full with yachts. If we could not berth inside the port of Fiscardo, we would moor by the rocky coast line around it.
Fiscardo is very beautiful and picturesque place, so we spent the rest of the evening on the shops around the port either for coffee, dinner and later drinks.
The next day, we felt like making a tour around some beautiful, nearby destinations. We sailed early morning from the port of Fiscardo to the small islet of Arkoudi, located at the southern side of Lefkas.
The map shows 1-2 spots for berthing, but we didn’t felt like swimming there because of high depths. Note that ideal berthing takes place no more of 10-15 meters deep, for the safety of the boat as well as the pleasure and convenience of the people.
We were interested for a short stop at the small port of Syvota at southern coast of Lefkas, so first we went for a swim at the small cove, western of Syvota. By noon we berthed at the port of Syvota, a traditional and cute port and had a coffee at an interesting coffee shop at the entrance of the port.
We woke up in the morning and enjoyed a relaxing day in the port. We had breakfast in the boat and walked through the traditional alleys of the small, beautiful town of Vathi.
We paid a short visit to the folk museum (entrance 3 euros) to view the traditional craft work, machinery of the previous centuries, charts and nautical uniforms.At the bow of our yacht we were facing the endless blue of the Ionian Sea and at our stern, 20 meters from the rocks, we enjoyed the turquoise waters under the all-green rocks.
We spent the day swimming in the beautiful place, fishing and sun bathing! We sailed from Kato Pigadi on early morning and headed to Lefkas; on the way we sailed near the islet of Arkoudi, the strait between Lefkas and Meganissi, with attention to the reef close to the rock of Thillia, near Meganissi. On the north was lying the islet of Skorpios, full with trees of a shinny, green colour.
We made a little stop to the south coast of Skorpios for a short swim; another amazing spot for swimming and relaxation. Few hours later we sailed to the port of Lefkas.
We stayed in the boat for the last night, recalling the beautiful memories of a fantastic sailing cruise.
