SUN : Embark at Palairos. You join your flotilla in our beautifully located Palairos base, just a short drive from Preveza airport. The superb setting, with views across to Meganisi and Scorpio, the island owned by the Onassis family, will soon put you in the holiday mood! And there’s time for a stroll around the shops after settling in on your yacht.
MON : Vathi, Meganisi (9nm). Vathi is a tiny port on the northeast coast of Meganisi. In a sheltered position at the end of an inlet, it has a few waterfront tavernas. Settle down to a cold beer and plate of mezes by the quayside and watch the ferry and fishing boats come and go.
TUE : Fiskardo, Kefalonia (5nm).We cross the channel over to Fiskardo on Kefalonia. This beautiful old fishing harbour is considered the pearl of the Ionian Islands. You’ll find a wide choice of stylish and sophisticated shops, cafes and a variety of tavernas and restaurants.
WED : Polis, Ithaka (19nm). Across the channel to the picturesque fishing port Polis on Ithaca. The bay has a beautiful pebbly beach with clear, turquoise waters, and you can take a walk up to the archaeological site of Loizos Cave on the north side, which used to be a worship place during ancient times.
THU : Frikes, Ithaca (9nm). A cute little harbour on the north-east coast with a couple of bars and tavernas. Ithaca is a sleepy, tranquil island, reputedly the home of Odysseus, with beautiful countryside, and beaches of pebble and stone- Bryon thought Ithaca so beautiful, he even wanted to buy it!
FRI : Sivota, Lefkas (11nm). Enjoy a sail across to Sivota on the East coast of Levkas. This is an unspoiled fishing village which has managed to keep its Greek character through all the years despite the intensive tourism. Here you’re spoiled for choice as there is a variety of shops, cafes and tavernas.
SAT : Return to Palairos (15nm). Rather than head straight back you can return to one of the many anchorages on Meganisi, perhaps Abelike Bay, for a last lunch stop and swim before returning to Palairos
SUN : Disembark at Palairos.
