Information About Vassiliki village
Vassiliki Lefkada: Vassiliki is a picturesque fishing harbour, quite popular among tourists and Greek travelers. It is located 37 km from the capital of Lefkada and its population reaches 400 inhabitants most of whom are engaged in fishing.
The village lies around the natural bay close to a verdurous plain. Its picturesque port is very much in action during the summer season accommodating a great number of tourists every year to the neighbour islands of Ithaca and Kefalonia as well as the nearby beaches that can only be accessed by boat. Around the edges you will find some nice seafood restaurants.
Over the years, Vassiliki has developed a high tourist profile that attracts many people. However, this region is much preferred by the windsurfers when the weather allows it. The main beach of Vassiliki is well-organized with sunbeds, umbrellas and water sports centers. The area is home to many nice accommodations, camping sites, local shops, cafes and restaurants.
To the west the village is the small settlement of Pondi which is a small bay itself surrounded by many hotels. It offers a breathtaking view to Vassiliki bay. The settlement is home to several sightseeings like old churches, natural springs and traditional windmills which stand on top.
