Renting a catamaran is a fantastic way to explore one of the most beautiful islands of the Heptanese complex, Lefkada. Lefkada is famous all over the world for its countless exotic beaches that can be explored with a catamaran of your choice. Lefkada also has some of the best marinas where you can easily find the ideal catamaran that matches your style and budget. You can directly contact the owners of the vessel or simply allow a BednBlue travel expert to guide you with some recommendations for your trip.
You have plenty of available options:
You can book and hire a catamaran with a captain--or without one, if you have a license, and enjoy a one-day cruise to Meganisi, Madouri, Skorpios, Sparti, and Ithaca. If you simply want to rent a yacht for swimming and snorkeling on various beaches and bays, then the type of boat for you is typically a catamaran. These types of vessels are stable, with a great level of displacement from the sea. Finally, if you want your experience to take a completely new form, you may charter a luxury catamaran and visit further destinations, such as Zakynthos for as many days as you wish.
Lefkada was named after the famous white cliffs of Cape Doukato (Cape Lefkatas), which was dedicated to the Greek god Apollo, in ancient times. The legend says that the famous poet Sappho committed suicide by jumping off these cliffs, because of her love to Phaon, the ferryman. On the entrance of the island, one can catch sight of the ancient castle of Agia Mavra and the sacred Monastery of Profitis Ilias on the eastern coast, which has an excellent panoramic view of Lefkada island. In terms of geography, Lefkada is the fourth largest island in the Ionian Sea and lies north of Zakynthos and south of Corfu. The comparative advantage to the other Greek islands is that Lefkada is easily accessible by car, ferry, or boat due to its close proximity to the mainland; it is connected by a small bridge that allows passage to both vehicles and boats.
Lefkada has some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean, plenty of mysterious mountainous villages, and offers visitors a gorgeous sunset over the vast Ionian Sea. The island has everything it takes to spend the best summer holidays, even if you have limited time. By renting a catamaran in Lefkada you may enjoy a two-day or three-day yacht charter and visit Corfu and Ithaca. You may also plan a weekly trip and dock into any seaside village or port, as you go. Some beaches you can set an anchor to with your yacht charter in Lefkada are Porto Ktasiki, Egremni, and Gialos. Most of the owners on our platform visit these heavenly beaches while providing several meals and refreshments on board to keep you entertained during the day. Finally, by hiring a catamaran in Lefkada you will be at a relatively higher advantage than hiring a motor yacht or sailboat, since you will have plenty of space to have fun onboard. This vessel will allow you to anchor in shallower waters, compared to most monohulls.
