Lefkada is attracting every year more and more tourists from all over the world. The beautiful natural environment, the amazing beaches, the easy accessibility, the rich history and local traditions, the wide offer of accommodation possibilities which satisfy traveller with all kind of budgets. These are only some of the reasons that make the island of Lefkada a major holiday resort.
Since 2018 an important improvement in the transport infrastructure of the Island, has made Lefkada an even more appealing tourist destistation: the ferry boat service from Lefkada Town to Corfu, Paxos, Ithaka and Kefalonia.
After a successful year of connecting all Ionian Islands together by ferry, the itineraries of the boat AZIMOUT of the company JOY CRUISES will continue this year as well.
The ferry boat connects all Ionian islands together at a low cost and with a fast transmission.
The manager of the company, Mr. Kostas Antiochos, stated that this year, the itineraries will start on Monday 22nd of April. Therefore, the first travellers will be flexible to move around the Ionian Islands during Orthodox Easter.
Moreover, the arrival of the first flight charters of the season start on 22nd of April.
NEW DESTINATION: MEGANISI ISLAND
He has also announced that the island of Meganisi will be added to its’ percorses, as it is also a popular destination. The small island attracts more people every year, as it is only a breath away from Lefkada. Therefore, you will find many holiday rentals in the nearby area of Nidri from where you can easily visit Meganisi.
The boat last year has started on May 2nd and served the following islands: Corfu, Paxoi, Lefkada, Ithaka, Cephalonia and Zante. There were stops in each one of the above ports to pick up and drop off the tourists. This itinerary was made in a time period of 9 hours daily. The boat stayed overnight in Zante. The next morning was set off, to do the same itinerary vice versa.
The boat has a length of 30m, maximum width of 6m and a capacity of 170 people. The fact that this is for peoples’ use only and does not serve the transfer of cars as well, makes it more competitive and fast. The boat serves the Ionian Islands from April till October.
