Luxury Catamaran Ionian Islands Cruise

Sail in the breath taking landscape of the Ionian Islands: Meganissi, Antipaxos and Paxos, Kefalonia, Ithaca, Skorpios and Lefkas are islands where you can experience an unforgettable cruise.

This sailing cruise is composed by many elements and most of them magically mixed. Temperatures are constantly excellent and the wind is never excessive!

The sailing route in Ionian Greece south of Lefkada allows shorter stops between one island and the other, making you forget the passing of time and transmitting the sensation of living suspended between the tranquility of the journey and the beauty of the landscapes. The navigation, in fact, is protected by the long wave, except in rare cases where the wind rises from the Southeast. 

Usually, the climate is characterized by a thermal wind regime, with slight breezes coming from the North-West, which reinforce in the afternoon to gradually lower the night.

Sailing in Ionian Greece is particularly suitable for those who prefer to take their time rather than sticking to a dense roadmap. Immerse yourself deeply in the nature and culture of Greece, adopting the gentle rhythm of the waves of its crystalline sea. 

The Ionean Sea is covered in evergreen pine forests. Trees overhang the quiet coves we sail into, providing perfect shade for midday picnics and siestas. See below a brief outline of the Greek islands and ports we enjoy sailing to most.

We will visit most of the following islands and ports Lefkas town, Scorpion (Onasis island), Nidri, Meganisi, Syvota, Vasiliki, Frikies (Ithaka), Kioni (Ithaka), Vathy (Ithaka), Fiscardo (Kefalonia), Agia Efimia (Kefalonia). The whole area is unique with over 40 miles of sandy beaches, secluded coves, beautiful bays, turquoise waters and incredible archeological, historical and religious interest.

Itinerary

Day 1
Lefkas – Meganissi
Our sailing cruise started on Lefkas island; we sailed away on Saturday afternoon, after we filled the yacht with the required provisions, food and drinks. The closest destination was the small islet of Meganissi, 2 hours to from the South from the port of Lefkas. It was a calm introduction to the experience of sailing! We reached the bay of Spartochori at the north of Meganissi, just before dark falls. We berthed at the floating piers at the west coast of the cove, which belong to the nearby tavern. They offer safe berth along with a meal in their tavern, a deal we were happy to accept! The tavern is owned by two brothers, one of them helped us to moor with his inflatable dinghy and offered fixed anchorage, so we didn't have to use our own anchor. We had a marvelous dinner on our table on the beach, surrounded by the tall trees down the coast! After dinner we returned to our boat for a good sleep, after a long and full day!
Day 2
Meganissi – Paxoi
Next day early in the morning we sailed to the famous Paxos island. We crossed again the Lefkas canal and exited from its northern end. We sailed further north, first to the small island of Antipaxoi, 29 miles far from Lefkas. We anchored by the east coast of Antipaxoi, just after the small port of the island (for more details please visit the chart on this page). We used a line ashore to keep us by the beautiful rocks. The place rocks!! Calm, turquoise waters, trees and beautiful nature on the hills and the endless blue of the Greek islands surrounding us, all composed a breath taking landscape, which we enjoyed either swimming or sun bathing on the yacht's deck. In the afternoon we sailed further north to the nearby island of Paxoi. We headed to the main port of the island, called Gaios. We decided to enter as safe as possible, from the north entrance, surrounding the islet of Panagia (Holy Mary). We entered the narrow port and we were really lucky to find a spot to moor, since the port gets full by noon! It is a very picturesque and romantic place, on the equally beautiful island of Paxos. We prepared dinner on board based on local ingredients and vegetables, which we found really delicious! Later we enjoyed few drinks in the cozy bars at the port.
Day 3
Paxoi, Port of Gaios – Cove Lakka
The third day we decided to avoid a long trip but better have a relaxing day. We sailed north for less than an hour, toward the cove of Lakka. Breath taking sailing destination, absolute turquoise and transparent waters, the cove of Lakka gives the impression of a swimming pool, all natural and beautiful. We berthed at the north-west coast of the cove, to stay protected from the prevailing north/western wind of summer months. We used also two lines ashore to keep us on a fixed spot, although numerous yachts in the cove stayed safely on free anchor. We stayed there for the whole day and visited also the small port at the far end of the cove. We ate some wonderful appetizers and starters at the bar of Akis, at the eastern end of the village. They offered top-class dishes, at a normal price. We returned to our yacht before the night falls and slept early under the stars, to get prepared for the next day and our return trip.
Day 4
Paxoi – Kefalonia
We sailed early morning for the island of Kefalonia and the famous port of Fiscardo. The distance is 52 miles or about 7-8 hours, so we started before sunrise to catch the day from the start. We arrived to beautiful Kefalonia in the afternoon and had a swim in a cove just above Fiscardo, before we enter the port, around 4pm. Again, we found one of the last spots in the port, since it's full with yachts. If we could not berth inside the port of Fiscardo, we would moor by the rocky coast line around it. Many spots in the small port are kept clear during the day for berthing of the tourist ships. But in the evening these spots are available, till early next morning. Bay Fiscardo: Ideal sailing destination in the Greek Waters
Day 5
Kefalonia – Lefkas – Ithaca
The next day, Wednesday, we felt like making a tour around some beautiful, nearby destinations. We sailed early morning from the port of Fiscardo to the small islet of Arkoudi, located at the southern side of Lefkas. The map shows 1-2 spots for berthing, but we didn't felt like swimming there because of high depths. Note that ideal berthing takes place no more of 10-15 meters deep, for the safety of the boat as well as the pleasure and convenience of the people. We were interested for a short stop at the small port of Syvota at southern coast of Lefkas, so first we went for a swim at the small cove, western of Syvota. By noon we berthed at the port of Syvota, a traditional and cute port and had a coffee at an interesting coffee shop at the entrance of the port. Magical coast line of Ithaca - countless anchorage spots for unforgettable holidaysMagical coast line of Ithaca - countless anchorage spots for unforgettable holidays Soon, we continued our small daily tour for Ithaca island. We found nice wind between Lefkas and Ithaca islands, so we enjoyed an hour of relaxing sailing before we approach the eastern coast of Ithaca and the wind fades out. The coast line just southern of the bay of Aetos is wonderful with numerous spots for swim (not all of them are suitable for staying overnight as they are exposed to the waves of the open sea and the N/W winds that blow from afternoon till late evening). We enjoyed a couple of hours swimming by the cape of Gidaki. Amazing landscape!, as the form of the white, shiny rocks slide from the hills, sharp down to the sea level. The rich flora on the hills offer turquoise colour to the bright and shiny waters of the small cove. Later in the afternoon we headed to the port of Ithaca, in the picturesque bay of Vathi. Due to the prevailing western afternoon wind (15-18 knots) in the port, we berthed at the western side of the port. The wind dropped by late night. We had dinner at the restaurants on the port side and tried wonderful fresh, local fish.
Day 6
Sailing the eastern coast of Ithaca
We woke up in the morning and enjoyed a relaxing day in the port. We had breakfast in the boat and walked through the traditional alleys of the small, beautiful town of Vathi. We paid a short visit to the folk museum (entrance 3 euros) to view the traditional craft work, machinery of the previous centuries, charts and nautical uniforms. At noon we sailed to explore the eastern coast of Ithaca, full with secluded, paradise places, one after the other! We anchored in the cove of Kato Pigadi, few hundred meters south of the rock. We tied two lines to the rocks, to keep the yacht near the rocky coast and protected from the winds with north and mainly western direction. At the bow of our yacht we were facing the endless blue of the Ionian Sea and at our stern, 20 meters from the rocks, we enjoyed the turquoise waters under the all-green rocks. We spent the day swimming in the beautiful place, fishing and sun bathing! Before dark falls we cooked the fishes we caught in the nearby beach and enjoyed a delicious dinner with fresh fish, salad and wine on our boat; this has been an unforgettable experience!
Day 7
Return to Lefkas
The next day was already Friday so we had to return to Lefkas port in the afternoon. We sailed from Kato Pigadi on early morning and headed to Lefkas; on the way we sailed near the islet of Arkoudi, the strait between Lefkas and Meganissi, with attention to the reef close to the rock of Thillia, near Meganissi. On the north was lying the islet of Skorpios, full with trees of a shinny, green colour. We made a little stop to the south coast of Skorpios for a short swim; another amazing spot for swimming and relaxation. Few hours later we sailed to the port of Lefkas. We stayed in the boat for the last night, recalling the beautiful memories of a fantastic sailing cruise

Lagoon 450F

450: SEEING BIGGER!

Replacing a catamaran that has come to be seen as a benchmark is no easy task. But the VPLP architects, in partnership with Lagoon and the celebrated Nauta Design studio, have been brilliantly successful in creating the 450.

EXTERIOR
A steering station on the fly bridge with safe access from both sides for perfect visibility and a large sunbathing area.

A spacious cockpit, again ideal for sunbathing, on the same level as the galley, with a ventilation panel.

A second cockpit, making best use of the forward area.

Particularly safe and effective transom platforms for coming aboard or accessing the tender.

PERFORMANCES
« 19 days! Maybe not a "Route du Rhum" time, but nevertheless a very creditable performance for a voyage from La Rochelle to Pointe à Pitre (3477 miles) in a strictly standard Lagoon 450." »
Jean-François Tanguy, professional skipper - February 2011

« The sailplan gives the boat enough power to remain fast and dynamic in a wind of less than 10 knots. »
Multicoques magazine, FR / Multihulls World, UK-January 2011

INTERIOR
Interior design by Nauta: elegance and functionality
saloon and cabins exceptionally well lit.

Natural light in cabins thanks to large glazed panels on hulls.

Truly luxurious owner's cabins.

Comfortable guest cabins with a side access to the double bed.

"U"-shaped galley for greater comfort at sea, equipped with large hot plates, broad work space and plenty of storage.

Optimization of the access between the cockpit and the galley
engine compartments remote from the living areas and perfectly insulated.
