Preveza lies at the beginning of the Amvrakikos Kolpos, an inland sea. It is a true Greek working class town. In the evening, the quay is a favourite place for the Volta, the walk some Greeks take in the evening. The quay is only for pedestrians. The town has plenty of shops and taverns.
When sailing towards Preveza from the NW, you will see a wooded hill to the north of Preveza. Closer by you will see the Ay Yeoryios fort. In the summer you can see planes land and take off from the airport. The buoys that mark the channel to Preveza are only visible from up close. It is important to stay between the buoy, because of shallow waters. The sea can be a bit turbulent if the wind comes from the channel and waves rise from the shallows.
