Extensive Mycenaean ruins support theories that Lefkada is the location of much-sought-after Ithaca from Homer’s The Odyssey. Strong gusts make the island a favorite among kitesurfers and windsurfers, and the annual Ionian Regatta starts right in Nydri’s picturesque yacht harbor. Nydri is the most charming of the traditional villages strung along the east coast of Lefkada. Guests of Seabourn may start by wandering the harbor and its waterfront tavernas or staking out a spot on the beach. Factor in time for the scenic walk to Nydri Waterfalls—and don’t forget your swimsuit!
