Lefkas (or Lefkada as it is also known) is one of the Ionian islands off the west coast of Greece. It measures 35km from north to south and 15km from east to west. Although it is a beautiful island with glorious beaches, it remains largely unspoilt by mass tourism. It is connected to the mainland by a causeway on the north coast which can be see on the chart. Several smaller islands are also shown including: Arkoudi, Meganisi and Skorpios. Lefkas occupies the main land mass of this chart along with a portion of the mainland to the east as far as Lake Voulkaria.

For this piece a classic black and white chart was chosen from the Admiralty archive collection. The chart is set on a gold background and is finished with a black mount and black frame. Surround lighting built into the frame completes the piece.
