Explore Lefkada-Lefkas on your next holiday.

Visit the island of Lefkada-Lefkas on your next holiday. Located in the Ionian Sea, the island is sparsely inhabited and home to several stories in Greek mythology related to love. Sappho is said to have supposedly committed suicide on Lefkada-Lefkas, and the island is also closely related to the goddess Aphrodite and Homer's Odyssey. The island of Lefkada has many stunning beaches. Porto Katsiki is particularly beautiful, and has been voted the most beautiful beach in Greece for the last few years. Additionally, the beach and sports center at Vasiliki is not to be missed. Sailing and windsurfing lessons are a must!

Things to do

Lefkada:

Discover the capital city of Lefkada. The town is home to just under 14,000 residents, and located on the northern tip of the island. Lefkada is about a 20-minute car ride from Aktion National Airport. The city has been home to several famous people, most notably the former shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis.

Vasiliki:

Vasiliki, a windsurfing center, is the perfect location for athletes and daredevils. Ocean Elements, a sailing company based in Vasiliki, books sailing lessons and tours year-round for adventurous tourists. Windsurfing lessons are also available at both beginner and advanced levels.

Eggremni Beach:

Visit the well-hidden Eggremni Beach. Eggremni is difficult to reach on foot, making it one of the less crowded beaches on the island of Lefkada. However, this beach is worth the effort; the pristine white sand and perfect view are not to be missed.

Lefkada Monastery of Faneromeni:

The Monastery of Faneromeni is located on the west side of the town of Lefkada. Built on the site of the temple of Artemis, this monastery's history and architecture come from the first centuries after Christ. Legend holds that upon Herodion's kneeling in prayer, the former temple collapsed, and the church was built in its place.

Papanikolis Cave:

Take a boat tour around the perimeter of Lefkada, and discover the Papanikolis cave. The cave is named after the Greek submarine Papanikolis, which used to hide in this cave during World War II. The crystal-clear water made for a prime vantage point. Today, there are too many boats entering and exiting to allow for swimming, unfortunately.

Porto Katsiki:

Porto Katsiki is a remote beach on the west coast of Lefkada. Though it is difficult to reach, this beach has become one of the most popular tourist spots on the island. The beach's name means 'goat' in Greek, and is named after the animals that used to receive their baths here.

Weather in Lefkada-Lefkas

Grecian summers are fairly hot and dry, while winters in Greece are mild and rainy. Temperatures reach the high-30s in summer and low-teens in winter. The Etesian winds in summer can be problematic for sailors, but windsurfers flock to the islands for exactly this reason. Lefkada also boasts over 300 days of sunshine annually.

Travel to Lefkada-Lefkas

Aktion National Airport (PVK) is located on the far northern tip of Lefkada. Flights arrive daily from both mainland Greece and other European mainland airports. Car-carrying and passenger ferries run between mainland Greece and all other major islands daily in the low season, and more often in the high tourist season.

The villa was clean and well equipped and the pool was great (having 2 teenagers that was high on our list of priorites). Initially Neil the owner was on hand and was brilliant in meeting us on arrival to having drinks with him locally. Also his recommendations on best places to eat and visit were really helpful. Although all the food was great and reasonable. We particularly liked Sivota only about 10 minutes drive away where you can watch all the boats come in and enjoy some great seafood. The only thing you need to consider is car hire. We had Astra and found the path up to the villa quite rugged to the point we sustained some damage to the car and paid heavily for it! I would suggest a 4x4 definitely to be safe. I would recommend this villa as the views were exceptional, the owners were great and I would love to come back again!

This was the first hot holiday that I had had in a while and from first interest to arriving we were looked after perfectly. The Villa was well laid out with a large well equipped kitchen leading out to a balcony with the most fantastic views. Adam looked after us and was at hand only if we needed him. We spent the mornings by the pool and the afternoons discovering the beautiful beaches. Nidri was a short drive away and was filled with lovely restaurant's, bars and street food cafes. We hired a boat from Nidri and had a wonderful day motoring around Meganisi stopping for lunch at a waterside taverna in Porto Spilia. I would and already have recommended this Incredible Villa to friends and colleagues and will revisit in the future.
