From the outset Lefkada will impress you. A beautiful island in the Ionian sea between Paxos and Kefalonia, very near the coast of Akarnania, linked to the mainland by the floating bridge 50 meters. An island mainly because, with wonderful mounten and beaches. With a reach past and many attractions. Influenced by the Venetians, French, Russians and Britons who fought to win.A clump of the surrounding islands completing the magic figure. One of these is the Scorpio Aristotle Onasis island and beyond Madouri the island of Aristotle Valaoritis.
That boat trip from Nydri Port was great. Departures from Nydri was 9:30 and return at 17:30 h.
We visited Kefalonia - we stop at Fiskardo, very beautiful city in Kefalonia, Ithaka- Odysseys island a truly unforgettable experience, Meganisi - The Cave of Papanikolis situated on the western side of Meganisi. This cave used from Captain Latridis as hiding place for submarine, during the Second World War. It is a fantastic and unforgettable experience, Scorpios - Sparti - Kastri and Madouri- Tour around the tree islnad of Onassis and stop for a unique afternoom swim to the beach of Scorpio and Madouri - The island is a part of Greek history, as the great poet Aristotelis Valaoritis was born and raised here. This is also where he rote some of his great work. His great-grandchildren Nanos Valaoritis and Eleni Karapanayioti inherited Madouri.
For the bad reason we did not visited Porto Katsiki, because of the bad weather. You can buy ticket with or without lunch on the boat.
For all coffee lovers!
First stop - Kefalonia.
I am in love at that city Fiskardo in Kefalonia. Fiscardo is a picturesque and beautiful Greek harbour village on the Northern tip of Kefalonia, largest of the seven Ionian islands. Of the approximate 365 villages on this large and diverse island, Fiscardo is unique in that it was left virtually undamaged during the great earthquake of 1953,that ruined most of the historic buildings on Kefalonia.
Look at that water. Crystal clear!
We stop in Kefalonia for a hour and something and of course we go to that beach on the picture. The view is amazing.
In Greece is very popular to drink Frappe! Try it.
You can see our boat- Eptanisos cruise boat.
Second stop - Ithaka
This was the time when we were in high sea and raining. Was a little scary, because the boat shake sometimes from the wind.
Third stop - Scorpios.
