Day one as described above.
On the second day, take the road on the eastern side of the island and go to Nidri, one of the most tourist villages on the island with a lot of facilities. Some beautiful waterfalls are hidden in a heavenly setting around 3 km from Nidri. The place is great for a morning walk.

Later on, board a ferry from Nydri and go for a daily excursion to Meganisi, a lovely island with beautiful beaches in a 30-minute sailing distance from Nidri. Meganisi has a lot of greenery and lovely coves to enjoy some privacy. It is much quieter than Lefkada and preserves its traditional character even during the high season.

Sivota is an enchanting village with many yachts in its marina. Taverns with fresh seafood and fish dot the waterfront.
