I love, love, love the amazing beaches on the island of Lefkada!
They are some of the best beaches in all of Greece… really! No matter how old or young you are, a day at any of the beaches on the island will be a day you will not forget.
Good to Know- In Lefkada, you should rent a car or motor bike to get around as the best beaches are the ones that you must travel to (you can take the island bus but it will take you much longer).
Most easy to find beaches (the ones I have listed) will usually have lounges, sun chairs and umbrellas to rent. Some beaches will also have snack bars and restaurants. You can, of course, bring your own chairs and umbrellas, games and books. Don’t forget a picnic!
Our Favorite Beaches on Lefkada:
Kathisma Beach – Go here for the totally white sands and the wave action in the afternoon. It is a blast to body surf and play in the waves. The beach has soft sand and is wonderful to walk… a great place to people watch. This beach is large and has room for many people, parking and restaurants.
Agios Nikitas is a nice beach for a small fishing village. It is a small beach, nice to visit during off season, as it is packed in the summer. The village of Agios Nikitas is a great place to visit because of it’s colour houses with great tavernas for a bit to eat.
Milos Beach is the well-kept secret just over the hill from Agios Nikitas. You will need to hike over the hill or take a boat around the cove to get to Milos. By land, the hike is not a major climb (as I have accomplished it many times in my flip flops) but it is not a flat walk.…Read more »
