Day 1: Lefkas

Begin your flotilla holiday in the traditional Greek village of Lefkas. Enveloped by the emerald Ionian, Lefkas is draped in miles of heavenly beaches famous throughout the Greek Isles. Meet the rest of your flotilla companions and explore the narrow alleys of Lefkas or head for the beaches along the west coast. From sweeping arcs of uninterrupted sand to remote, white stone shores, beaches in every shape and size await.

Day 2: Paleros

You’ll begin you Meganisi adventure with a 12nm passage across to the mainland town of Paleros. Paleros is a great spot to catch the local flavour of the Ionian Isles, offering summertime puppet shows, theatrical performances and traditional Greek dancing in the town square. Enjoy the traditional flotilla punch party and dine on freshly caught octopus, bream and bass with your new flotilla companions at one of the many waterfront tavernas.

Day 4: Vathi, Ithaca

Turn due south out of Kalamos Town, and take on the longest leg of the week, a 20nm reach to Vathi, on the famous island of Ithaca, home to Odysseus. Continue down the coast until you reach a narrow waist 200m across. Navigate through the narrow entrance into the Kolpos Molou Bay, which shelters the little town of Vathi, capital of Ithaca.

No matter what you choose, your lead crew is available to give you top tips and the latest weather reports.

Day 6: Port Athene, Meganisi

Sail the gentle waters of the Ionian Sea for the easternmost bay on Meganissi. Glide past fertile, pine-covered islands dotted with red-tiled houses to the bay that crowns Port Athene.
