Suggested Route – Lively Nightlife

If lively harbours and bays are your thing, then this suggested one week itinerary could suit you and your crew mates…

Sunday night – Nidri, Lefkada

A lively tourist town sure to get your holiday off to an exciting start. Plenty to choose from in the way of restaurants, shops and bars. Head to Cafe de Paris for a cheeky cocktail and later Street Bar for a night cap…

Monday night – Lefkas Town, Lefkada

Spend a night in the cosmopolitan island capital Lefkas Town for a Greek nightlife experience. Have a drink in one of the bars by the lagoon as the sun sets then head into the bustling square for a souvlaki or a gyros!

Tuesday night – Vasiliki, Lefkada

Head north early through the Lefkas bridge and venture down the wild west coast of Lefkas before the wind picks up. Explore the turquoise hues of the west coast beaches before rounding the southern tip of the island into Vasiliki for a sundowner in the harbourfront bars. Often there is live music that goes on into the early hours…

Wednesday night – Filiatrou, Ithaca

Go to Filiatrou to enjoy a delicious Mojito at the rustic beach bar playing some great tunes until the early evening. Plan ahead and cook on board for a slightly more chilled evenings entertainment.

Thursday night – Kioni, Ithaca

Head into Kioni early for a prime position on the quayside if you are lucky. Watch the windmalls light up as the sun goes down from the rooftop cocktail bar and then enjoy dinner at Mills or Kalypso, both offering good traditional Greek food!

Friday night – Fiscardo, Kefalonia

The most trendy harbour in the Ionian islands, Fiscardo is THE place to be if you are looking for a fun night out. Theodora at Theodora’s cafe bar makes the best cocktails in town. The Lord Falcon Thai restaurant is a must for dinner. Put on your dancing shoes and head to the club for a boogy!

Saturday night – Vathi, Meganisi

Only a short hop back to base, Little Vathi provides good food, good cocktails and good entertainment for your final night on board. Choose the private marina for guaranteed mooring or chance your luck with the town quay. Either way, Little Vathi is quaint and beautiful as well as offering great nightlife.
