If you’re looking for sun and relaxation, with a sprinkling of the hustle and bustle of traditional Greek island life, Lefkada hits the spot.
The location is spectacular – a quaint seaside village with a bustling marina and sea views, mountain backdrops, lush green islets, olive groves and nearby fishing villages to explore. Hire a bicycle or e-bike and enjoy the picturesque cycling routes around the island, or don your hiking shoes and head into the mountains, following steady or more challenging routes, to take in stunning island views and majestic waterfalls.
Beach lovers can explore some of the finest beaches in the Mediterranean. From pristine sands and glistening pebbled coves to sea caves and dramatic cliffs – we recommend taking a boat trip to the west coast and spending a day beach-hopping.
The island’s capital and port, Lefkada City (city by name, small, traditional town by nature), is home to cobbled shopping streets, 17th Century churches, quaint squares and a number of small, yet fascinating, museums. Walk the town promenade to the lagoon, a bird-watching hotspot, or the Agia Mavra fort dating back to 1300 AD.
