Lieblingsbuchten - Favourite bays
Vliho - Our home on Lefkas
It is a small fishing village with a yacht club, a pharmacy, and a supermarket with a post-office counter. Vliho is a popular free winter anchorage. It is also called "Velcro Bay" because many come and few leave.
Dessimi - Lefkas
We also also call it "White Horse Bay", because on our first visit to the small taverna on the beach we saw a girl on a white horse. Her name is Bell. After school she works at the local yacht club.
Sivota - Lefkas
The harbour promenade with its numerous tavernas and small shops invites you to take a stroll. An old oil press which has been converted into a bar is frequently visited by us for a "Sundowner".
Porto Atheni - Meganisi
A cozy bay with dark blue water and lush green trees. The village Spartochion, which lies on a hill overlooking the bay, is worth a visit. The walk should not be taken during the blazing midday heat but as a morning exercise.
Porto Leone - Kalamos
Der Ort wurde bei einem schweren Erdbeben 1953 komplett zerstört und nicht wieder aufgebaut. Die Kirche ist als einziges Gebäude komplett renoviert und wird von den Dorf- bewohnern aus Kalamos betreut.
In 1953, the village was destroyed during a heavy earthquake and never rebuilt. The church is the only building which has been renovated. It is looked after by the villagers of Kalamos.
It is a small island not far from the mainland, where at least 50 people live during the summer. There are gorgeous little bays and a tiny village with a mini-market. Here, the underwater world is still pristine.
Fiskardo - Kefalonia
Fiskardo ist der beliebteste Ort im Revier. Ein Hafen mit malerischen Gassen und durchgestylten Cafés. Leider ist der Hafen ständig total überfüllt mit Flottillen und Mega-Yachten. Wir ankern in einer idyllischen Bucht nebenan und besuchen Fiskardo nur zum flanieren.
Fiskardo is the most popular spot in the area. The port has picturesque narrow streets and stylish cafés. Unfortunately, the port is always overcrowded with flotillas and mega-yachts. We anchor in a small bay in the vicinity and visit Fiskardo just for a stroll.
Vathi - Ithaka
Vathi, the capital of the island, is located in a huge natural harbour. It is a lively little town with good shopping facilities. We anchor in a large bay near Vathi where we can sleep undisturbed, swim, and relax. Whenever we feel like it, we head to shore with the dinghy.
Antisamos - Kefalonia
The movie "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" was filmed in the gorgeous bay. Apart from the beach with a taverna, there is even a water-sports centre with a beach volleyball field.
