Is it possible to find a bareboat charter in Lefkas? 

If you have a suitable sailing license you can rent a boat without a skipper in Lefkas. You can also choose to embark on a Lefkada sailing trip with a skipper on the Nautal website. 

If you are a confident sailor in possession of the appropriate licence, it is absolutely a fantastic idea to throw caution to the wind and be the captain of your own boat. In this way, you will have the opportunity to explore Lefkas and the rest of the Ionian islands at your leisure. If you want a more relaxing type of holiday, though, where you have nothing to worry about but perfecting your tan, you should look for your perfect Lefkada boat rental with a skipper. When you rent a boat in Lefkada with a skipper, you will get the benefit of their years of experience and often they will tell you funny anecdotes about their past sailing experiences. 

What is the weather like in Lefkas? 

In Lefkada, a Greek island in the Ionian Sea, the climate is Mediterranean, with mild, rainy winters and hot, sunny summers. At sea level, the daily average temperature ranges from 9.5 °C (49 °F) in January to 26 °C (79 °F) in August. This is ideal when you want to rent a boat in Lefkada, as it isn’t too hot. The water temperatures generally range from around 15°C (59°F) in February to about 25.56°C (78°F) in August. November is Lefkas’ wettest month, with around 4.8 inches (12.19 cm) of rain. This contrasts greatly with July, which usually sees just 0.2 inches (0.51 cm) of rain. If you rent a boat in Lefkada in August, the wind will be fairly calm, with speeds averaging at about 6.9 mph (11.1 kph). On the other hand, if you go in December, you should be prepared for fairly strong winds, averaging at about 10 mph (16.09 kph). 

When is the best time to go on your Lefkada sailing trip? 

The best time for a boat hire in Lefkada runs from June to mid-September, when the high temperatures, slightly calmer wind speeds and little rainfall merge together to form the best sailing conditions. However, the boat prices will be higher during these months because of the ideal conditions, and there will also be a lot of people, potentially leaving the beaches overcrowded. If you aren’t a huge fan of the sun then it is advised to visit between mid-April to mid-June in order to avoid the heat that can occur in high summer. Going during this time period will also avoid the crowds that the slightly better weather of the summer months brings. 

What to do during your boat hire in Lefkada? 

Renting a boat in Lefkada will allow you to explore the most popular and most-photographed beaches in Greece. Amongst them are Porto Katsiki beach, Egremni beach, Milos beach Lefkada and Kathisma beach. If you’re looking for a more private vibe then be sure to sail over to Mylos, Kalamitsi, and Kaminia where you can relax away from any crowds. 

Surprisingly, there isn’t much accommodation available on the island itself which means renting a boat in Lefkada is the perfect solution. However, this doesn’t mean there aren’t many restaurants. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Two of the most well known ones are; the evening-only Regantos at Dimarchou Veriotou 17, which offers excellent mezedes and main courses, and Eftychia, in an alley off Dorpfeld, a great spot for oven-baked goodies like swordfish and stuffed aubergines. 

Other things that are worth taking the time to check out during your boat hire in Lefkada include: 

  • The views from the cliffs at Cape Lefkatas, which extend all the way to Ithaca and Kefalonia
  • The Archaeological Museum of Lefkada
  • The Monastery of Panagia Faneromeni
  • Doukato Lighthouse
  • Nydri Waterfalls

Lefkada is situated in a centralized location and the options for sailing were multiple. I strongly suggest Lefkada to be the starting point of the trip
