Lefkada is one of those magical places where every picture you take is like a little postcard that has captured the salty loving memory of an unforgettable moment.
Breathtaking sights, traditions and countless sport activities.
You will literally dive and disappear in the million shades of blue and green: from the soft sky, electric waves and darker lagoons to the fresh forests and gardens and the strong olive branches.
Lefkada, also known as Lefkas or Levkas, is part of the Eptanisa group of islands in the Ionian Sea in Western Greece. It is the fourth largest Greek island and is one of the two accessible by car, connected to the mainland by a long boardwalk and a floating bridge.
The island’s capital as well as its gateway is also called Lefkada. The east coast is lettered with traditional villages, including the seaside resort Nydri, while on the west one can find beaches covered with sheer cliffs and turquoise waters, like Porto Katsiki and Egremni. Windsurfers prefer the south coast of the island, where the small touristic village Vasiliki offers them wonderful conditions to practice.
Apart from spectacular beaches with crystal clear waters and picturesque architecture, there are numerous other attractions in Lefkada including plentiful natural beauties, historic sites, museums and monasteries. Some of the “must see” on the island include: Nydri; the mediaeval Venetian castle of Agia Mavra; prehistorical city of Nirikos; Lefkata cape; Monastery of Faneromeni,the most important religious centre of Lefkada; the Archeological Museum; Agios Ioanis Antzoussis Church; Waterfalls of Dimosari.
