For yachtsmen, the indented eastern and southern coasts of Lefkas Island are of particular interest, with a large number of yacht harbors and sheltered anchorages. Meanwhile, the western coast boasts very attractive beaches and fishing villages but lacks enclosed harbors or docks suitable for yacht moorings. During the summer, Lefkas Island, especially its capital, Lefkas Town, is crowded with tourists arriving from the nearby Preveza airport and yachtsmen renting boats from the Lefkas Marina.
