Ionian Yacht Charter

Ionian Yacht Charter

Lefkada perfectly serves the southern Ionian and the many picturesque Islands which offer thousands of miles of stunning coastline with clear water inlets, bays and quaint harbour towns to explore.

The Ionian's are the least challenging of all our destinations and offer sailors a sheltered sailing area with short island-hopping distances, easy-holding anchorages and culture tours and fantastic things-to-do ashore to break up the sailing.

As well as consistent wind and a friendly welcome in every port, you can expect lots of hot sunshine and a long summer which starts in April and ends in October.
