The landscape of Lefkada blends both idyllic and rough scenery, welcoming the tourist to roam the past of the Ionian Islands while rewarding every corner with the discovery of exciting secrets.
This sea area is considered ideal for boat rides and sailing due to the safe navigation it provides and the great variety of sheltered moorings in picturesque bays, harbors and quiet beaches.
The inhabited islands are Meganissi, Kalamos and Kastos while Madouri, Skorpios, Atokos are privately owned. The rest of the islands are small and uninhabited. The coasts of this area are dotted with a great number of underwater and sea caves, which form an ideal habitat for seals.
Lefkada offers visitors wonderful beachfront towns like Nidri and Agios Nikitas in addition to its beaches. Additionally, there are lots of naturally stunning locations, such as the Dimosari waterfalls, wonderful food, and a ton of fun things to do!
Some reasons we love Lefkada:
– Waterfalls of Nydri
On the outskirts of Nydri, there is a stunning waterfall called Dimossari that cascades down into a valley filled with white rocks. The path that leads to the river on foot along the pine tree silhouette is beautiful. The seaside town of Nydri is close to the Dimossari Waterfalls. A trip to this charming Lefkada town and the Dimossari waterfalls are ideal together.
– Monastery of Faneromeni
The most significant sacred site on the island of Lefkada is the Monastery of Panagia Faneromeni. This monastery, which is perched on a hill above the town, offers stunning views of the city, the northern part of the island, and the opposing shores of the mainland.
– Milos, Pefkoulia Beach, Kathsima, Egremni Beaches
– Porto Katsiki (Partly-Organized, Family Friendly, Pebbled)
One of Lefkada’s top beach destinations and one of the best in Greece and the Mediterranean is Porto Katsiki. The Ionian’s deep blue waters create a unique dichotomy with abrupt white cliffs, which create a wild but gorgeous backdrop. The surrounding area is covered in lush greenery, providing one of the most picturesque settings on earth.
