The island of Lefkada in the western Greek continent is considered the most beautiful island in Greece.
Not far from Athens, a paradise is revealed in the full sense of the word, with a pastoral landscape and a blue sea around it,
where harmony between nature and man is filled and water is connected to the sky. We, as Israelis, are well acquainted with the eastern gate,
while on the voyage it was exposed to the western islands in the "Ionian" sea known for its rare blue turquoise. It is possible to reach the islands of Itika, Kapalonia, Kalamos and, of course, around Lefkada.
Lefkada Greece brings the letters of one of the sailors on our route to illustrate some of the atmosphere and feelings:
"The cruise to the small island of Kalamos was in a breeze that is characteristic of the closed area between the islands of Lefkas, Itka and the northern Greek coast.
Kalamos is a tiny island with a deep water anchorage that serves almost exclusively the platos (short-range yachts) and a few local fishing boats, in a small village in the village near the harbor - time seems to have stood still. I love the tiny, remote anchors in the Greek islands.
There are fewer and fewer places that are not full of tourists. "Kalamus" is one of those, on the island everyone went slowly, or sat in the shade, or sat under the vines on the balconies.
The only one running around restlessly was Takis. He serves as a router, manager and marina worker, a restaurant owner, a waiter and an intelligence man. From afar he identifies an approaching yacht,
a fast walk (which is really a criminal offense on the island). He arrives at the entrance of the anchorage and directs the yacht to its docking location.
He helps her tie sometimes while giving instructions in six different European languages, then runs to the restaurant to get an invitation,
submits and runs for another yacht while he runs around and we in our "drink",
drinking Turkish coffee (do not you dare mention the Turks! Talking to the Greeks, Turkish hatred) and chatting with Irina, the waitress who had come to Athens from summer to work on the tiny island. In general,
on the Greek islands, the population doubles in the summer without taking into account the many tourists.
The schedule did not allow us to stay on the amazing island. We booked to return to the island on a less crowded schedule and continued eastward to the Greek coast ...
I must mention that during the cruise I saw beaches so rare. It is funny that in all of my travels throughout North and South America, in the many countries in eastern Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam ...
I have not seen such beaches. And the biggest joke that is right here under your nose ... "We will help you to have an unforgettable experience in the lesser known and most unknown beaches and beaches in the Greek islands.
