Lefkas

HOW TO REACH OUR LEFKAS BASE
Lefkas Island can be reached by plane, car or bus. The Aktion airport near Preveza on the mainland is about 20 minutes away from Lefkada Town and caters to many international charter flights. Domestic flights from Athens are also available 2-3 times per week between 2/6/2015 and 3/10/2015 with www.aegeanairlines.com .

Another way to get to Lefkas is by intercity bus from Athens, which will take about 5 hours. Two small ports in Lefkada (Lefkas) island, Vasiliki and Nidri connect Lefkas to Kefallonia island. From Vasiliki there is a twice a day connection to Fiskardo and from Nidri boats run once a day to both Fiskardo on Kefallonia and to Frikes on Ithaca. It takes about 1hr to get from Vasiliki to Fiskardo and 2hrs from Nidri to Fiskardo.
OUR SUGGESTION: A direct charter flight to Preveza and then a bus (approx. 20 minutes) would be the best solution.
MEETING POINT / OFFICE
The EASY SAILING meeting point is directly onto your yacht.

MOORINGS
Berth stern-to or bows-to the pier advised by the authorized staff of Lefkas marina and DOLPHIN YACHTS staff. Mooring lines are available in all berths. Care needs to be taken on the S side as the ballasting runs out underwater in places and a yacht should really go bows-to rather than stern-to.

FACILITIES
Water is available on the quay. Fuel is available at a special point situated at the dock N end of the E quayof the marina. You will get your yacht full of fuel and right before you finish your charter you should dock the fuel station and refill fuel tanks.
The main street / town of Lefkas is a 5-minute walk from the dock. A 24-hour taxi stand is also found within the marina, though you can order a taxi at the marina office.The local bus terminal Lefkas with connection of the main town with many villages/beaches of the island is within walking distance (direction of the main port).
ATM cash point and many banks are located near the yacht's pier. Parking area (unguarded, quite safe) is also located into the marina.

Into the CANAL (Not CHANNEL?) during of your approach to Lefkas/Levkas port or marina from South stay into the separation system (buoys) Keep attention of the shallow water into the strait.

FLOATING BRIDGE of LEFKAS
The floating bridge at the N end Lefkas opens in two ways: A small part of the bridge (a wing) lifts up and small boats can pass or the whole bridge swivels out of the way so larger yachts can pass. The bridge uses VHF Ch 12. During the day the bridge is programmed to open on the hour. Between 21.00h and 06.00h a call is needed to get the bridge to open.

Position

Lefkas Marina is situated on the eastern side of the island, literally embraced by Lefkas town and right beside the main harbour. It is virtually a separate town within a town. Thus, visitors arriving at the marina have the opportunity to visit the historic centre of the island and its museums, to wander through the charming paved alleyways, do their shopping or enjoy a coffee in the town's central shopping area and to come into direct contact with the customs and traditions of the community of Lefkas. Lefkas great advantage is its geographical position. A bridge just 50 metres long separates the island from mainland Greece, a fact which greatly facilitates the visitor's direct and speedy approach via the Aktion airport and from other destinations.
