Lefkada Egremni beach

Information about Egremni beach

Egremni Lefkada: Note: The beach is now only accessible by boat. Egremni is a beautiful beach situated 38 km southwest of Lefkada Town. This long sandy beach is surrounded by impressive barren cliffs that create a magnificent backdrop. The unique beauty of Egremni has made it one of the most photographed landscapes in the world. The white sand, shiny pebbles and crystal clear waters create an exotic setting that attracts thousands of visitors every summer! Nevertheless, if you seek seclusion, you can also find some private spots under the cliffs.

Despite the fact that Egremni is often overcrowded, its rocky landscape offers a feeling of isolation. The beach used to be accessed through the 325 steps that led to the shore, but due to an earthquake that destroyed the steps, Egremni is only accessible by boat now.

One of the most beautiful in the world
The Egremni beach was absolutely breathtaking... Blue crystalclear water, mountains behind you and the best barman I have ever met (He gives you drinks for free)... I spent 10 day on the island and I saw a lot of beautiful beaches and I was overwhelmed by the contrast between the mountains and the sea... I know for sure where will I spent my next holiday... You should rent a motorbike and travel all over the island, is the best way to fell that you are there and you can have an unique sensation floating on the small and curved mountain roads...

Crystal water
I believe Egremni is the best beach on Lefkada. Porto Katsiki was also fine, but too crowded. Egemni though is equally well-organized and as popular as other known beaches on Lefkada. We had some difficulty to find it because the roads were not well-signed but at the end we saw from a turn a gorgeous, long beach. You have to park the car at the road and then you climb down some stairs to reach the coast. The water is crystal, you don't even need a mask to see the bottom of the sea. Make sure you are a good swimmer because there are some waves and no lifeguards.
