More information about our yacht charter base in Vliho, Lefkada, Greece

Vliho Bay, Lefkada

sail2day.com Charter Base

The sail2day.com charter base in Lefkada is located in Vliho, just south of the tourist town of Nidri in a sheltered bay of the Ionian. A sailing trip from Vliho is the ideal starting point for a yacht charter in one of the most beautiful sailing destinations of the Mediterranean.

Where?

Vliho is village nеxt tо the seа οn thе east side of Lefkаda islаnd, spread alοng thе roаd.

The villagе gives the nаmе to Vlichо bay whiсh is enclοsed from thе sea bу Geni peninsula. The villagе is very nаrrow and the hоusеs are аrranged in 2 linеs alοng the seа.
Vliho Bay is a very large, well sheltered anchorage which has some good, rather other-worldly tavernas dotted around its coast.

Why?

Our Vliho base is an ideal spot to spend a dream sailing holiday starting from Lefkada.

From there you can discover the large islands of Kefalonia, Ithaca, Zante or the smaller islands of Meganisi, Kalamos, Kastos, Atokos to the south by sailboat avoiding the very busy Lefkada harbour/marina and the narrow canal / bridge.

Directly out of Vliho Bay is Scorpios private island.
