Good anchorage can be obtained in the middle of the cove, about 300 m off the coasts of the head, on a holding ground of mud and—farther offshore—smooth rock. Small vessels can anchor in the NW part of the cove, securing their stern with a long line to the shore.

This is a concise map of the whole island of Lefkada, It features a map of the city including all important points of interest.
Palairos is a small and relatively shallow harbor in the Greek mainland, some nine miles by sea, east of the south end of the Lefkada canal. It also lies barely a mile north of the harbor and the Vounaki marina, the main sun sail charter base in this part of Greece.
Within a small cove of unique beauty, and just 15 km from Nidri, a landscape of hills surrounds the pretty harbor of Sivota. A fishing harbor located 33 km south of the island’s capital in a beautiful bay of the same name, Sivota is an ideal place to relax and a very good spot to stop as there is an equipped port and a market.
Port Spilia is the other harbor of Meganisi in the Ionian Islands. Lying at the head of a deep inlet at the northwest end of the island, the harbor provides berthing for around 50 yachts on its various quays and pontoons, although the depths in the inlet are simply too great for most yachts to anchor.
The Monastery of Panagia Faneromeni or Moni Faneromeni is the most important religious centre on the island of Lefkada. Situated in Frini, on the hilltop above Lefkas Town, this monastery offers a breathtaking view to the capital village, the northern side of the island and the opposite coasts of the mainland.
Just after the picturesque village of Evgiros, the fully surfaced road continues 3km down to the romantic beach of Afteli, which is not very long but is also not often crowded. The only building is a villa, constructed by one occupant near the stone beach.
Pefkoulia is an impressive large sandy beach located 10 km southwest of Lefkada town ad close to the fishing village of Agios Nikitas. Considered as one of the best beaches of the island, the sea at Pefkoulia has a wonderful turquoise color that attracts many visitors.
Kastos is located close to larger and long-established boating and holiday home destinations such as Ithaca, Kefalonia, Lefkada and Meganissi; it is separated from its neighbouring island of Kalamos by a deep channel. Just eight kilometres long and, even at its widest, only 1,200 metres across, Kastos has a huge appeal to all forms of boating and yachting enthusiasts.
