Ionian Islands of Greece

Take a look at Kalamos

Sitting in George’s taverna by the beach drinking a cold beer and watching the sun go down over the Ionian sea is one of the quintessential Greek sailing holiday experiences. The main village of Kalamos is a sleepy harbour with a couple of shops and cafes which are all stocked by the ferry which visits daily from the mainland. Port Leone on the south of the island is a must see anchorage, the long since abandoned village offers a fascinating glimpse into the past.


The main port on the small Ionian island of Kalamos is a really pretty place. The port and centre has a couple of shops and a few lovely tavernas and bars. Tavernas are found both in the harbour itself and a short walk along the beach. There are also a number of Greek bars just a short (uphill) walk from the town square. The harbour attracts lots of visiting sailing yachts on their yacht charter holidays and George the local ‘harbour master’ will always do his best to get you moored up – he also has a great taverna!

Port Leone, Kalamos

Port Leone (to use it’s Venetian name) or Kefali in Greek is a large bay on the south side of Kalamos island and a ‘must visit place’ if you are in the area on your yacht charter holiday – even if you just have a look around the bay from your yacht. Port Leone is ideal for a lunch time or overnight stop, a swim and a walk ashore to see the beautiful small church which is still in use. The evening is idyllic and a time when you can truly appreciate Port Leone’s unique poignancy.
