7 days in the Ionian Islands on a luxury yacht

7 days in the Ionian Islands on a luxury yacht

3 of 7 3/7
Levkas beach
Day 3


The next morning, you’ll head southwards 30 miles towards the mountainous island of Levkas with its stretches of golden beach. The island lies off the Playia Peninsula in Acarnania, from which it is separated by a shallow lagoon. A range of hills, the largest of which is Mount Stavrotas, dominates the island and runs in a southwest direction, ending at Cape Dhoukatou.

In Greek mythology, it was from this location, on a promontory called Leucadian Rock, that Sappho flung herself for love of the handsome Phaon. With yacht docked in Lefkas town or Nydri you will enjoy a lazy day here – it’s a gorgeous spot for sunbathing on the beach and enjoying the water for the afternoon.
