Let explore the Sailing Holidays area... Add Lefkada to favorites

Lefkada is located in the Ionian Sea on the west coast of Greece and is surrounded by a total of 24 islets. Before becoming an island, Lefkada formed part of the coasts of Akarnania until the 6th century B.C. Nowadays it is shaped as an island, being separated from mainland Greece by this narrow canal.

A floating bridge provides access to both sides. This along with the fact that it can be frequently reached by ferry boats departing from other Ionian Islands as Zante, Ithaca and Kefalonia make Lefkada a very good base for trips and excursions to the Ionian Islands and western Greece.

Capital and port at the same time, the city of Lefkada welcomes visitors with its beautiful narrow streets, small squares, traditional houses, fine belfries and paved pedestrian streets. The fortress of Aghia Mavra, situated at the entrance of the city, was built by the Sicilian Ioanni Orsini in 1300 next to an artificial canal on an islet of the lagoon; later, both Venetians and Turks have added some pieces.

A remarkable sight is the Papanikolis Cave, the second biggest cave in Greece. This cave shot into prominence during World War II by virtue of being a secret hideway for the submarine Papanikolis. The sheer magnitude of the cave is astounding; the total area covers 3.800 m².

You can visit it by boat and you will be amazed by its colossal hall and its rich decoration of stalactites. In the sunlight, the combination of rocks creates thousands of colors creating a dreamy atmosphere. At the end of the cave there is a pebbled passage, ideal for walking.
