On the western side of Lefkada, in the Ionian Sea, and close to the tourist beach of Kathisma is the seaside village of Agios Nikitas. This is a small traditional place with pedestrian streets, a fantastic beach and a lovely fishing port. Built around a small bay and surrounded by lush greenery, Agios Nikitas village is a wonderful place to stay in Lefkada if you are looking for a quiet family place. There are some nice Lefkada hotels, studios and apartments spread around the village and also in the surrounding hills, offering fantastic view to the Ionian Sea.
The main village has traditional fish restaurants, mini-markets, shops and frequent bus connection to Lefkada Town. From the small port of Agios Nikitas excursion boats depart for Mylos, a wonderful naturism-friendly beach with exotic water and soft golden sand. Mylos beach can be accessed only by boat or by foot through a hiking path starting from Agios Nikitas. This is among the most beautiful secret beaches to swim in Lefkada island.
Right in front of Agios Nikitas, there is a small beach with white pebbles and crystal water. This is a beautiful place to swim in Lefkada and you can combine swimming with sunset, as Agios Nikitas offers the most beautiful sunset point in Lefkada island, Ionian Sea.
