When visiting Greece, you might start from the port of Lekada, or Lefkas on the island of Lefkas. This island has a swing bridge and causeway at the north eastern tip, connecting it to the mainland. When you arrive at the part, you will board your yacht and meet your captain and crew. This is also a great tie to meet with your chef and discuss any special issues you want made available before you set sail. After you have settled in, you can always walk around the town of Lefkas and enjoy the sights, but we suggest you eat on board your yacht. The chef will repaper you an amazing first night meal under the stars.
Preveza is a beautiful location that makes you think you arrived on an island. This feeling is strengthened when arriving on board a yacht. The town of Preveza is home to some amazing restaurants, taverna and bars, all of which are packed within a neo-classical style, providing you with an eclectic architectural jumble that sings harmoniously with its surroundings. The local cuisine is also eclectic, and you will find every meal and dish readily available, served with either the finest local wines or wonderful Ouzo.
Just 25 miles northwest of Preveza nestles the lovely town of Parga. This small town is dominated by a large Venetian castle that sits prominently over the peninsula, and acts as a man-made landmark for sailors. The area has a number of interesting sites and relaxing beaches, however anchoring off shore is limited, and you will be able to berth in Ormos Valtou which is just northwest of Parga, since they have good protection from the winds.
Lakka harbor is situated in the North of Paxos and is in a sheltered bay that provides ample mooring for many a yacht. Lakka brings you close to some amazing beaches, such as Harami. The town of Lakka is modern and tourist centric. Yachts can either berth in the quay or anchor in the bay, if Lakka is full, you can always take a long line ashore on the north. Once you are on land, enjoy walking around this beautiful place, and visit the amazing café’s, tavernas and shops, partaking in local cuisine and checking out the specialty items for sale in souvenir shops.

Many a yacht and tourist will be found coming here from Corfu or the mainland to enjoy a 24 hour visit to this amazing town.
Antipaxos, or as it is more commonly known to tourists, Antipaxi is an sparsely populated paradise in the Ionian sea and sits just opposite from the island of Paxos, hence the name Antipaxos. Legend has it that Poseidon touched Corfu with his trident, and created a home for himself and his consort. The island is now covered in orchards, vineyards and a few farmsteads. The beaches are mostly untouched and the island is one of the nicest places to anchor off and enjoy a quiet piece of heaven. The locals produce their own wines, so you might enjoy a local brand while relaxing by the sea.
If you want a nice overnight stop, then Nikiana is the place to anchor. This is a small fishing village with harbor, and is a quaint place to just relax overnight. Provisions are best sought at Lefkas.
