Paleros is a picturesque and historic small town located on the west coast of mainland Greece which sits against the amazing backdrop of the Arcananian Mountains and opposite of Lefkada and Kefalonia. The city is evocatively situated in a breathtaking backdrop of beautiful and serene landscape and the crystal clear waters of the Ionian Sea. The town is located 28 kilometers south of the Aktion airport and 26 km by car or 10 nautical miles south east of Lefkas. Aktion airport is a preferred facility for tourists with destinations of Epirus and Lefkada. Paleros is a place of tourist interest that harmoniously combines traditional elements with modern facilities and amenities. Traditional tavernas, cafes, beachfront bars and a beautiful beach for those who would like to have a quick dip before their embarkation, are within walking distance from the port.
In addition, Paleros is the perfect place for those who love sailing as it is hard to imagine a more perfect sailing and cruising area. Due to this unique combination of the mountains absorbing all humidity and the sea which is around the area, has a pleasant dry and mild climate. During summer the wind picks up at midday, blows through the afternoon and disappears at sunset giving therefore no worries to the travelers about anchor holding during the night!
Paleros belongs to Municipality of Vonitsa, which is a picturesque beach-town with a rich historic background only 16 km away. Vonitsa is set in a lush, green landscape overlooking the Ambracian Gulf, which is one of the few places in Greece where you still get a peek of the endangered bottlenosed dolphins. This is mainly because of the rich stock of sardines in the Ambracian Gulf, where industrial fishing is impossible.
