A day on the island of Lefkada gives everyone of all ages a wide range of things to do and see. Sea lovers can enjoy the most amazing experience with a private boat exploring the surrounding islands and isolated beaches of Meganisi, Scorpios, Kalamos to name a few. Beach enthusiasts will soon realize they have found the best beaches in Greece with two of them being Porto Katsiki and Egremont, located on the south-west coastline of the is

There will be days during your vacation where the family will want to get away from all the touristic buzz and explore picturesque villages such as Karia or take a lazy walk on a refreshing path towards Nidri Waterfalls.

As the warm summer day comes to an end on this beautiful Ionian Island, we will help you get prepared to enjoy an amazing sunset over the Ionian Sea on the west coast at Kathisma beach.

Lefkada Local Area

Lefkada Highlights

Insta-worthy beaches, Porto Katsiki and Kathisma are at the top of the list. A wealth of gastronomic experiences from the fishing village of Sivota to the mountain village of Karya.

As the easiest and most convenient island to access with its floating bridge connected to mainland Greece, you will soon come to discover the range of experiences that the highlights of this Ionian gem are for any type of inspiration or desire.



Megali Petra means Big Rock and gets its name from the many large stones that lie across the shore of the beach, provide shade later in the day and make for a fun day for both adults and children. Starting from the traditional village of Kalamitsi you will wind down to the coastline to Megali Petra and get within walking distance of the fantastic Kavalikefta beach. This beach should be on the bucket list for all visitors to Lefkada!



Egremni may be less well-known than Porto Katsiki, it is truly the pride and joy of the locals on the island. This beach on the west coast of Lefkada, according to Travel + Leisure magazine, is one of the "13 Places Where You Can See the Bluest Water in the World.” Egremni can only be accessed by boat or on foot. This beach is best enjoyed in the morning or later or late afternoon. The 30-minute walk from the parking area includes 440 stairs and is not for the faint of heart!



Nidri Waterfalls is a must on your next Villa Holiday to Lefkada. As in its name its located in the region of Nidri but in its outskirts surrounded by a mountain range and olive groves. Its easy enough to get there by car but making it an experience renting bicycles in Nidri to get there, makes for a more enjoyable day.



A favorite of many locals, Milos beach is a true gem of Lefkada. The village of Agios Nikitas is the go-to point to get to Milos Beach either via trekking over the mountainside or by taxi-boat from the seafront of Agios Nikitas. Once the beach appears before you, you will feel that you have found a hidden paradise. One of the most virgin and untouched beaches on the entire island, and the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Ionian Sea at her very best.



Nidri is the tourism hub of the island. It is where tourism started on the island back in the 1970s with the infamous name ‘Aristotle Onassis’. The island of Aristotle Onassis, named Scorpios, is part of the scenery from the port of Nidri. Nidri is a cosmopolitan town offering everything from restaurants of every cuisine, boutique stores, beach bars, water sport activities and the most popular daily boat cruises.



Just 15 minutes from the town of Lefkada, it is enough to discover one of the most charming villages of the island. It is about Agios Nikitas, a seaside village located northwest of Lefkada, between Pefkoulia and Kathisma and masterfully combines simplicity with cosmopolitanism. Here you feel like you are transported back in time. Magnificent stone-built houses sprawling amphitheaterly across the village, winding cobbled streets, courtyards laden with bougainvillea, geraniums and basils and a dreamy tiny bay with crystal clear waters waiting to blow your mind this summer.



Sivota Bay in Lefkada although today is a traditional Greek Fishing Village dates back to Ancient Greek Mythology associated with the journey of Odysseus and the poet Homer. Sivota is a natural hidden away harbour that will remind you of Greece of the ’80s and ’90s with the friendliest and most hospitable of atmospheres that is ideal for families.



One of the most photographed beaches in the world. The impressive white cliff, created by mother nature over the centuries, has become an icon of the island of Lefkada. You can reach Porto Katsiki by boat from Vasiliki or by car. In the early to mid-morning hours the cliff provides natural shade over the entire beach and the crystal blue waters. At the end of the day this is one of the most romantic spots on the island offering spectacular sunset views.
