The small harbour of Nikiana lies on the NE coast of the island of Lefkas in the Ionian Sea of Greece, two miles South of the equally small harbour of Ligia and just under three miles SW of the southern entrance to the Lefkas Canal. Like its neighbour Ligia essentially a fishing boat harbour, it has a little more space on its long breakwater quay and it is usually possible for a visiting yacht to moor bows or stern-to using its anchor at some point along the quay. However, there are mooring chains parallel to the quay in parts and care is needed not to hook them with your anchor. The outer end of the breakwater quay is quite low and it can be difficult for some yachts to moor up there. Shelter in the harbour is good in the prevailing winds but less so if there is anything E in the wind. Strong easterlies can send a swell over the end of the breakwater.
