Agios IoannisMore info
Agios Ioannis has got to be one of the most perfect places to go for a totally relaxing and restful holiday. It has a sensational beach yet has experienced very little in the way of tourist development. It is located just a short distance from Lefkada Town - the vibrant capital of the island.
Agios NikitasMore info
A traditional village with a strong Lefkadian flavour, Agios Nikitas is considered to be the prettiest resort on the island. This small, traffic-free fishing village is close to several superb beaches, including its own small golden crescent of sand.
Covered in olive trees right down to the rocky coast, Gheni is a lovely peaceful place with wonderful views across the bay. The nightlife, restaurants, cafés and bars of Nidhri are close enough to enjoy and far enough away to avoid ...
Katouna is an idyllic, traditional hilltop village that has changed little over the years. From its elevated position slightly inland from the coast, this charming spot enjoys magnificent views of Lefkada Bay and the beautiful Ionian sea.
Meganissi IslandMore info
Meganissi is a tiny, spectacular island very close to Lefkada. It is very green, with crystal clear waters, simple, ideal for romance, honeymooners or for those who wish to get away from it all.
The closest to a lively resort that Lefkas can boast, Nidri is in fact quite small yet has a plentiful selection a restaurants, tavernas and shops mixed in with a few bars. Nidri's marina and beach make it a great base for day cruises, island hopping trips and a variety of watersports.
Nikiana and LigiaMore info
The peaceful surroundings of both Ligia and Nikiana are green and wooded with a backdrop of verdant hills and wonderful views across the placid waters dotted with yachts to the mainland.
Vassilika is located on a wide bay on the South coast of Lefkada. The village of Vasiliki itself is on the Eastern side of the bay.

An authentic Greek holiday experience
Lefkas is one of the Ionian Islands located off the west coast of mainland Greece. It's a beautiful, fertile island with some superb beaches, an imposing mountainous interior and verdant valleys carpeted with vineyards, olive groves and cotton fields. The island has much to offer the independent traveller. There are bustling tourist resorts awash with beachside activities and late night bars but you'll also find many wonderful walking trails that weave their way between unspoilt mountain villages where rural life continues much as it has done for generations.
The island's best beaches are on the west coast where white cliffs plunge down to golden and white sand lapped by iridescent water that provides some of the best swimming in the Ionian Sea.
Lefkas is one of the prime windsurfing and kite-surfing resorts in Europe due to two mountains that create a unique wind system in vast Vassiliki Bay. Thousands of windsurfers gather here in high season. The gentle morning breezes are ideal for beginners taking one of the many courses on offer and the strong afternoon gusts are a challenge for the most experienced surfers.
There's plenty to see and do on the island of Lefkas.
Access to mainland Greece is trouble-free. The island is connected to the mainland by a 50-metre drawbridge that was built in the 1980s to replace the archaic chain-operated ferry originally introduced by the Emperor Augustus.
The capital, built on the edge of a huge salty lagoon, is an attractive place with a jumble of narrow alleyways and a busy town square fringed with friendly cafes that provide endless people-watching opportunities.
Most visitors head for the two main resorts of Nidri, halfway down the east coast, and Vassiliki at the southern end of the island.
Explore inland and you'll find many scenic villages where you can dine in traditional tavernas.
