Corfu or Lefkas?

Dear All,

We are planning a sailing at the end of September. We want to sail around Corfu Island or Lefkas (Kefalonia) Island.

Is there anyone who has seen both of them?
Which one do you suggest for 1 week trip?
Which point are "must see" places on the islands?
Is "end of september" a good time as weather to sail and enjoy sea and sun?

If you are into seeing a world heritage site city and don't mind the additional people then Corfu is the place to spend your week as it offers a wonderful experience.

If you want to just enjoy nature as well as have a smaller town/towns experience then Lefkas has lots to offer.

Re: Corfu or Lefkas?

Forget the west. Not much there for cruising. Corfu and mainland is great for a week. Include Paxos. Wind from NW in the afternoon. The inland sea between Lefkas and mainland is milder and the ports are in the corners. It depends on where you charter as the main ports are 50 miles apart. You can expect it to be very crowded. If you want to spend as much time sailing then plan to anchor out most nights. Plenty of anchorages. Plenty of tavernas. If you do get to tie up, enjoy parma Volta; the whole town walking up and down the quay till after midnight. A week is too little time for extends land touring. Visit old Corfu town, Syvota, Gaios, Lakka, Patga, Agios Stephanie. For Lefks, Porto Vathi, Spartakhori, sivota, Kalamos,Paleros, maybe even PREVEZA but this is out of the sailing field.
