Gialos beach in Lefkada island
The combination of the rocky landscape with the beach, gives a wild beauty to this beach in the western part of Lefkada, located a bit north from Egremni beach, approximately 5 km close to Athani village.
The water here is crystal clear, like all beaches of the island.
Gialos beach unlike the rest beaches in Lefkada has sand instead of pebbles. There are, although, big stones in several places. It is a very long beach (more than 3km) where you will never feel crowded whenever you visit it.
You should pay particular attention to the large waves (depending on weather) caused by the "open" sea unfolding before it.
At the back of the beach you will find 2 or 3 canteens for food and coffee, from where you will enjoy the fantastic views together with the coolness of the shade offered by their roofs.
You will not have any problem in parking your car since, near the beach, there is a big enough area for this reason.
