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.
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.
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.
