Beaches in Lefkada island

The turquoise waters and the heavenly beaches of golden sand are the hallmark of Lefkada, with constant awards of blue flags and the higher positions of international voting.

The west coast of Lefkada hosts the most spectacular and famous beaches, which are known for their crystal waters, the sandy beaches and the huge rocks that hang up to the coast. Some of the most famous beaches with their own beauty you have to admire are: the Porto Katsiki, the Ammoglossa, the Castro, the St. John, the St. Nikitas, the Milos, the Kathisma, the Gialos and the Egremni.

The beaches Porto Katsiki, Kathisma and Egremni adorn the pages of travel magazines and newspapers in Greece and abroad and have gain a global reputation.
Porto Katsiki has been awarded as the best beach in Greece and one of the most popular in the Mediterranean, impressive at the first glance. The steep white cliffs that hang above the wonderful beach in combination with the turquoise waters are creating a spectacular image that will impress you for sure.

At the eastern and southern part of Lefkada, the beaches are lee, mainly with pebbles but always with crystal waters. Of these, the major and best known are: Ligia, Nikiana, Perigiali, Nidri, Desimi, Poros, Ammousa, Agiofilli and Vassilici.

If your preferences are the quiet and secluded beaches, the Nisakia, Kalamos and the Kastos are there for you, accessible mainly by the sea.

Ready for a swim…
Even the modern "Robinsons" will find here their own exotic paradise, discovering beaches with crystal clear waters, unseen and inaccessible from the crowds. 

An informal poll is carried out for many years with the competitors "Egremni" and "Porto Katsiki" with no real winner, as Egremni has its fans and Porto Katsiki gets the most awards. 

You, however, not deal with the poll and the comparisons;
just enjoy the wonderful beaches with the great clear waters.

One of the most impressive beaches is Egkremni with its long sandy beach and the turquoise waters, under a sharp cliff with pines. Because the descent (largely the ascent) to this beach is difficult, a good suggestion is to take the boat from Vasiliki, passing from Lefkatas, it continues to Porto Katsiki and leaves us for a swim at Engremni beach (we will arrange of course the time of our return). It is advisable to make sure to have with you umbrella, hats, sunscreen, water and fruit, in order to have a good time…

Excellent is of course the famous beach of Porto Katsiki, at which we will go by a car to the parking space and then we will go down the stairs to arrive at the beach (please note the slag present in the metal bar in some places). Here we will find umbrellas and sun loungers. The white cliffs rising around us form shade for little dew, as the sun is not joking. We can even (on return) eat a sandwich or to drink our coffee at the cafes on the beach, enjoying the lovely views.
