Why You Should Rent a Boat in Lefkas

In recent years, the culture of sailing vacations has gained more and more popularity. This holiday type gives much more opportunities for tourists than traditional resort vacations or bus trips. When you travel on a water vehicle, you get a unique chance to literally live on the water and enjoy incredible nature views, which are not accessible for those who are on the land.

One of the best rental providers in Greece and other 35 stunning locations is a rental company 12 Knots Yachting Club. High-class services, a great collection of vehicles, and standing support are assured by the professional team of 12 Knots.

There are shore-based courses and online seminars.

Advantages of Choosing Lefkas for Yacht Charter

Lefkas is one of the most popular sailing destinations in Greece. This island, which is situated in the Ionian Sea, is ideal for a sailing vacation due to the breathtaking nature with rolling hills and mountains. In addition, there are rich flora and fauna of both the island and the sea.

Difficulties That You Face When Decide to Rent a Boat on Lefkas

Lefkas has one specific feature, which makes this island stunning and remarkable but a little dangerous at the same time. It is the availability of the white rocks, which stretch along the west side of Lefkas. Due to these cliffs, the view from the sea is both spectacular and frightening.
