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!

HomeAway has various different types of holiday rentals on Lefkada-Lefkas for every variety of accommodation need. Guests planning for a multi-family house can look into one of HomeAway's property listings under apartments in Lefkada-Lefkos. Alternatively, a single-family group or a romantic couple might be interested in the house listings. These villas in Lefkada-Lefkos feature amenities such as full kitchens and outside party patios.

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.

Amazing place

5 of 5
The villa is brand new and filled with everything you may need, everything inside and outside it's done with a superb modern taste but at the same time functional and clean. The manager Kostas make us feel like home. I would strongly recommend to everybody to try the experience to stay there, it will be hard to forget

Sound of the sea indeed- breath-taking

5 of 5
Well where to start. The villa was just Perfect. Sound of the sea indeed. the villa is on the beach front, though it is a public beach you would think it is your own! We organised our own hire car from Preveza airport. and met Simone at the villa. The driving instructions were easy, and Simone and Jimmy were there waiting at the roadside for us. To help us with our bags and settle in. We were then visted later during our stay for a mid week clean and some helpful tips. The villa was gorgeous, big, clean and modern. we were spoilt for choice, beautiful blue sea or our own swimming pool! Having our own car was great. We had a map of the island in the villa and set off on a little tour. We also ventured to Nidri and hired a small motor boat for the day and visited Meganisi. Absolutley brilliant. Agios Nikitas village is very pretty which is the closest village to you. Literally just 2 minutes in the car. where there is a bakery and supermarket and a few different taverna to eat lunch and dinner. a lovely little beach as well. Lefkas town is just 15 minutes in the car and there are tavernas a plenty there. We found some really nice places to eat and couldnt help but have a gyros for lunch and Daltons and a fredo cappachino. Greek cold coffee is surprisingly refreshing in the sun! The location really makes the holiday. The perfect balance of peace and quiet but close enough for activity and adventure as well! This place is perfect. we will definitely be back!
