Lefkada is a green island that belongs to the Ionian Sea and is renowned for its beaches, which are turquoise and literally look like pool waters. Favorite island of Aristotle Onassis, who bought a small island next to Lefkada, Scorpios, whose waters are enchanting like Lefkada. Let’s start!
Visiting Lefkada, you mustn’t leave without visiting the beautiful beaches of the island. The beach of Agios Nikitas, Kathisma, Porto Katsiki and Egremni are four of the beaches of the island that you should not miss to see. In Agios Nikitas there is access to either a path (which the locals will tell you) or through boats that are constantly visiting the beach.
Kathisma, one of the most beautiful beaches of the island, but also the wildest, since it is a beach open to the Ionian Sea and the sea currents can very easily drift you away. Unfortunately there are many drownings on this beach, so you should you are especially attentive. Also on this beautiful beach, which is organized with sun loungers, there is a beach bar where you can have fun and also do some extreme sports !
In addition, Porto Katsiki has been voted for many years as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and not unfairly, but the most beautiful beach in the world, as it is mentioned in a well-known travelmagazine, is the Egremni. Unfortunately because of an earthquake about two years ago , the access to this beach is stopped on foot and it is only by boat. You will be enchanted by its beauty!
In addition, in the center of Lefkada you can have fun at night bars, eat tasty and healthy food,try the greek cuisine and spend your family holidays in a perfect way!
Last but not least, do not forget to visit Vasiliki and eat fresh fish, as well as Nydri where you can take a one-day cruise to Scorpios, either bigger where the cruise ships will take you to Kefalonia, Ithaca and you will be able to see other islands. When you return from the cruise, it is worth visiting the waterfalls in Nydri. It’s a really hidden place that will enchant you with its beauty!
Do not leave without trying the traditional honey on the island and acquiring the famous lentils from Eglouvi that will delight you tastefully. Have fun and explore the magical Lefkada!
