On the southern side of Lefkada island is the lovely fishing village of Vassiliki. This place gets busy in summer due to the nice fish taverns at the port, the beautiful beach and the plenty Lefkada accommodations. The port of Vassiliki serves fishing boats and private yachts, while in summer there are excursion boats to the secluded beach of Agiofili. Also in summer there is ferry connection between Vassiliki port in Lefkada and Fiscardo in Kefalonia.
The beach of Vassiliki is located about 500 m from the port and attracts many visitors. This large beach with soft sand and crystal water is partly organized and great for families with kids. This is also a very popular windsurfing spot of Lefkada island due to the perfect windsurfing conditions. Apart from hotels and restaurants, some windsurfing centers also line up the beach of Vassiliki, offering courses and renting windsurfing equipment.
