Lefkada Megali Petra: Megali Petra (meaning big rock) is one of the beaches of Lefkada that everyone should visit without hesitation. It took its name from the huge rocks that are seen on the shore. It is located 24.3 km west of Chora and close to Kalamitsi.
The beach is partly organized with sun beds and umbrellas scattered between the rocks. The wild yet fascinating landscape of Megali Petra offers a nice feeling of seclusion and privacy.
Sheltered by the abrupt green cliffs, the beach is totally unspoiled, ideal for the nature lovers. Megali Petra offers a beautiful swimming experience. Children need extra caution because the waters are deep and sometimes it might get windy.
Lefkada is connected to the mainland with a bridge, so it is easily accessible by car. There are many different ways to get to Megali Petra, from any location on the island.
