One Week Kefalonia Flotilla

One Week Kefalonia Flotilla Overview

The Kefalonia route starts and finishes in Sivota on Lefkas Island and explores many picturesque spots on Kefalonia and Ithaka. This flotilla is perfect for first time flotilla sailors as well as experienced sailors looking to introduce family and friends.

What's the wind like?

Being in the South Ionian islands this route is generally very sheltered. You wouldn't want to spill that G'n'T after all... This said, a couple of days sailing down the Ithaka channel offers some great wind for sailing enthusiasts, with no significant swell.

Where will we visit?

During the week you will visit places such as Fiskardo, Euphemia, Sami and Poros on Kefalonia Island, as well as our favourite spots on Ithaka Island. There is plenty of time for swimming and exploring on this cruise as well as wandering around the back streets of the villages.

There may also be time to visit the smaller islands of Kastos, Kalamos or Meganisi, which all offer a real chance to get away from it all, after the bustling villages of Kefalonia island.

Typical Itinerary & Highlights

Days 1 - 2, Join the flotilla in Sivota

The Kefalonia route starts and finishes in Sivota on Lefkas Island and explores many picturesque spots on Kefalonia and Ithaka. Once you have arrived and met your lead crew it is time to relax and soak up the sun and the atmosphere of the quayside tavernas, before the first days briefing the following morning.

Days 2 - 4, Exploring the east coast of Kefalonia

During the first few days you will visit places such as Fiskardo, Sami and Poros on Kefalonia Island. Scenic Fiskardo is a highlight of the trip, with its colourful character and eclectic evening promenade. From here you can also walk or take the dinghy around to the caves in Foci Bay which are well worth a visit. Sailing south to Sami & Poros means some excellent sailing in the Ithaka channel – making this route ideal for new, as well as confident flotilla sailors and their families.

Days 4 - 5, Ithaka Island

The next few days will be spent visiting Ithaka island and the fishing villages of Frikes and Kioni. Another of our favourite anchorages is Pere Pigadhi, where the crystal clear water will make you impatient to jump off the boat for a swim! The flotilla sometimes stops at the main town of Vathi on Ithaka for a taste of ancient mythology.

Day 6, Vasiliki Bay

Another great spot you may visit is Vasiliki on the south western corner of Lefkas Island. Vasiliki is well known as the windsurfing and dinghy sailing mecca of Europe. The bay is stunning and has a plethora of shops, tavernas and cafes to explore en route to the long pebbly beach. From here you can rent windsurf equipment, paddle boards and dinghies, or simply relax on the beach.

Days 7 - 8, Back to Base

The final night stop will be back at the Lefkas base in Sivota for your final group meal with all your fellow flotilla sailors to reminisce on your wonderful trip!

The final Sunday will be spent heading home - fingers crossed you'll be lucky enough to be back next year!
