Lefkada Vacations

The diverse landscape of Lefkada is so attractive and unspoiled that many people keep coming for holidays every summer. The island opens its doors to visitors through a small drawbridge from the mainland, with the first stop being the charming capital. Due to the exceptional beaches and the mainland drive, tourism is very developed. It is an island non-accessible via ferry, as it is just a short drive from mainland Greece.

Lefkada Town has a central square which is the focal point of activity. Shops and taverns line it and street vendors set up shops to sell various goods, from local products to books and jewelry. People of all ages, locals, and tourists stroll through the narrow streets to gather at the square and chat with acquaintances or have a quiet dinner with friends in one of the taverns.

Beyond the Town, the island opens up a string of beaches, little port towns and fishing villages that nestle on hillsides covered in olive groves. The villages offer a panoramic view of the island and the waters below, and for those with a flair for photography, Lefkada provides some fantastic photo opportunities.

Driving further away from the Town, one of the first beaches to visit is Kathisma. A large beach full of fine pebbles, Kathisma has beautiful rock formations and amazing crystal waters. For those looking for organized beaches, Kathisma is the right place. Parasols fill the beaches, and there is a plethora of activities everywhere (from paragliding to snorkeling excursions).
Another beach to enjoy during your vacation in Lefkada is Egremni, an enchanting sandy beach where guests need to descend many steps to reach it. However, the high abrupt cliffs, the soft sand, and the crystal water will reward you for this effort on your vacations in Lefkada. Moreover, Agios Ioannis, a beautiful beach on the northern side of the island, is a popular place among windsurfers. The wind is perfect for watersports, particularly for windsurfing and kitesurfing.
Porto Katsiki is perhaps the most exquisite beach on the island. Over the recent years, though, the number of visitors has considerably increased and driving through the narrow winding road can be quite a pain, especially in high season. However, if you can disregard the crowds, the beach itself is the utter swimming destination, featuring large waves breaking on the shores that are shaded by soft limestone mountains.

No Lefkada vacation is ever complete without a visit to the island's eastern coast. Much more developed than the rest of the island, the most renowned area is the busy coastal village and port of Nidri. The port is crowded with little boats that take visitors on day trips around the island. Despite development, Nidri is still one of the most beautiful places in Lefkada and its landscape, overflowing with natural beauty, never fails to impress visitors.
The area surrounding Nidri is a combination of mountain ranges, beautiful beaches, resorts and vast fertile plains on the island that extends toward the hinterland with its olive trees, pines, and cypresses making it one of the most picturesque areas on the island.

To make the most of your Lefkada vacation, do not miss the chance to visit some of the villages on the island. From the port of Nidri, your holiday can be enriched with boat trips to close Ionian islands, such as Meganisi, Kastos, Kalamos, Skorpios, and some smaller uninhabited islets. This gives visitors the chance to see more landscapes during their vacation and unwind on a boat in the blue sea.
