According to media reports, there are new delays at the new anchorage in Vasiliki. The project "Mooring of tourist boats in Vasiliki Lefkada" started in 2013 with great expectations. It was considered an important project for tourism and the further development of the area. The project included 100 berths, 4 service buildings, the environmental works with a budget of € 17. 000. 000. The construction schedule was 36 months.

The last extension(11th) so far, promised an opening on 1 July 2020. Only power current and the Public Utility Networks (PPC, OTE) would still need to be connected. Unfortunately not. As Meganisi News informs us, the 12th extension was given.
