Preveza & the Amvrakikos gulf

Ionian Islands of Greece

Take a look at the Mainland Coast of Western Greece

The largest of the Ionian islands, Kefalonia was made famous by the book and film ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’, it has always been a key holiday destination and now in the summer the island is bustling with visitors from many countries. With pretty, colourful buildings and several stunning beaches it is easy to see how the place became so popular. For visiting yachts perhaps the most special places to explore are the numerous caves in the anchorages along the east side of the island.


A bustling small lonian city at the entrance of the Amvrakikos gulf Preveza is a busy commercial centre but at the same time has narrow alleys filled with fantastic tavernas, café bars and shops together with neoclassical houses, belfries and some wonderful examples of Turkish and Venetian architecture.

Vonitsa, Amvrakikos Gulf

Vonitsa is a beautiful Venetian port on the Gulf of Amvrakikos or Amvrakia, with a new quay overlooked by an impressive Byzantine castle. Ashore you will find everything you need including banks, supermarkets, beaches and a good selection of tavernas and cafes. The town itself has its own unique style and ambiance which sets it apart from many ports in the Ionian than the rest of the Ionian and is enclosed by lush, green foliage. At night you can see the small church out on the Koukouvitsa spit as it is beautifully illuminated. Apparently, Vonitsa is one of the few places in Greece that you may get a glimpse of the endangered bottlenosed dolphin – so get your binoculars at the ready! This might be because of the high levels of fish, especially sardines in these waters where fishing is limited.
