Lefkada beaches are famous around the world for their exotic water and the large coastline. Especially the beaches on the western side of the island, like Porto Katsiki, Egremni, Kathisma and Mylos, are the most characteristic of Lefkada. Other great Lefkada beaches are Agios Ioannis and Vassiliki, that are getting very popular among windsurfers and kitesurfers, due to the special wind conditions that blow there in summer afternoons.
Apart from gorgeous beaches, Lefkada also has traditional seaside villages. Nydri, Agios Nikitas, Vassiliki and Sivota are lovely Lefkada villages, where there is also a wide range of Lefkada hotels. Here are the most famous villages and beaches of Lefkada. Each location is presented with detailed text, map and occasionally photos and close sightseeing.
