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.

General Information

Nowadays, it is not necessary to be an owner of a boat to sail because it is possible to use yacht rental services. 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. Moreover, the company offers everyone to join their sailing school, where qualified instructors can teach you to cope with sailing and motor yachts. 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. Therefore, the choice of a yacht charter on this Greek island gives a chance to dive and enjoy an incredible undersea world as well as to visit secluded bays with white sand beaches.

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. The Ionian Sea is one of the calmest seas in the world, but it is still better not to get closer to the western side of the island, especially if your choice is a bareboat charter on Lefkas. When weather conditions are adverse, it is necessary not to sail on the west side.
