Day 1: Lefkada - Nidri

7 day route to the Ionian Islands

After renting a vessel and safely accommodating on board, spend some time talking to the manager of the charter company. Before sailing from marina Lefkada, you’ll have enough time to see the city and enjoy dinner in one of the restaurants.

Lefkada

The main island in the Ionians is Lefkada. There are several theories regarding the origin of its name. According to one, it derives from the name of Odysseus’ friend, Lefko. However, the more likely and widespread theory is that it is associated with the white cliffs of Cape Lefkatas, since “lefkos” is Greek for “white.” Its wide-open spaces, varied terrain, and land link to mainland Greece have made Lefkada one of the most popular tourist destinations in the whole country. It draws all types-- affluent yacht-owners, families with kids, young people, and water-sports enthusiasts.

The island’s main resort towns are located in the east: Nikiana, Lygia, Pergiali, and Nidri. In the south you’ll find the local windsurfing center of Vasiliki, and the west side of Lefkada is known for its unbelievably-beautiful – and therefore most popular – local beach, Porto Katsiki. It is that natural beauty that serves as the island’s main attraction. Cultural heritage sites include several churches, the archaeological museum and picture gallery in the capital of Lefkada, the Apollo Temple in Lefkatas, and the four ancient grinding mills on Gyra beach.

Nydri

The village of Nydri, located on the eastern coast of the island of Lefkada, is a large and sought-after tourist center of Greece. The village earned its popularity thanks to its entrancing view of the nearby islands Skorpios and Madouri, as well as its local waterfalls – the most popular of which is Dimossari. Nydri is also the sailing center for the whole island; its shoreline is always dotted with numerous mooring yachts, and it’s the scene of the Ionian regatta at the end of September.
