This is an example of a sailing route as suggested by BeBlue’s most expert skippers of this area. The itinerary can be modified based on crew’s specific request before sailing or during the cruise.
Day 1: Check-in
Check-in at 4 pm at Marina of departure.
Once done with the check-in procedures and the shopping for the trip (food and beverage), you can enjoy an aperitivo and a fish dinner in one of the restaurants of the city or, alternatively, eat on the boat at sunset.
We set sail from Lefkas and, navigating peacefully along the canal, we reach the open sea where we can raise sail towards the little archipelago of the smaller islands of Skorpio, Skorpidi and Tilia, ideal stop for a first dive to initiate the holiday. With a short sailing to the south-east we can reach Meganissi with its verdant coasts and protected bays, where you can visit the beautiful towns of Vathy and Katomeri or spend the night on board in the suggestive Limonari Bay.
We leave early from Meganissi for a beautiful sailing to the south in the direction of Ithaca, one of the smallest and at the same time most fascinating inhabited islands in Greece. You will be simply enchanted by the legendary homeland of Ulysses with its rocky bays and the white coasts made of nacre and limestone, falling steeply into a crystal clear sea.
From Ithaca we head north with a peaceful close-hauled sailing that will take us to Atokos, one of the western and remotest Ionian islands off the Acarnanian coast. The island is nearly uninhabited, but we will find a wonderful bay of white pebbles and light blue water, with a little solitary house immersed in green olive groves: the ideal place to admire the sunset and spend a peaceful night.
The little island of Kastos is really one of the gems of the Ioanian Sea; you can reach it from Atokos through a short sailing trip to the north-east. Its small harbour on the east side is the perfect place to have a nice dinner, enjoying the excellent local cuisine and the uncontested hospitality of the inhabitants of this small island.
We sail along the western coast of Kastos, stopping in the wonderful Sarakinos Bay to have a swim. From there, we go to the north-west towards the near island of Kastos, famous for its uncontaminated nature and its many inlets where you can stop to have lunch and go snorkeling. At sunset, you can stop for the night in one of its silent bays on the south-east, where you find white beaches surrounded by ancient olive trees, some of the oldest in the whole Ionian Sea.
After breakfast, accompanied by the singing of the cicadas of Kalamos, we head north to arrive in Lefkas. Lunch break on Vatheiavali beach, where you can enjoy the sea and the sun, and return to the marina at 6 pm.
Day 8: Check-out
Check-out in the morning at 9 am after breakfast.
The itinerary might be subject to variations due to weather conditions, safety and technical evaluations of the Skipper of the boat. This programming is intended as indicative and non-binding.
