LEFKADA A PERFECT SUMMER BREAK AWAY DESTINATION
Lefkada offers you easy access almost by all means of transportation. It’s a perfect summer break away destination. It is reachable in almost 3 hours average time from many European countries. If you live in UK fly to Aktio Preveza airport from London, Manchester or Birmingham. There are also direct flights mainly in the summer. Usually there are flights from cities of Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Romania, Austria, Netherlands and Norway.
Especially in June or in September the fares and rents are quite low and the temperatures are milder. From the airport take a taxi or pick up a hire car as the public transport in the island is still infrequent. Of course if you want to make the most of your visit then you should rent a car. However if you come from Italy by your own car take the ship ferry from Ancona, Bari or Venice. Disembark to Igoumenitsa port from which Lefkada is only one hour drive. The ”island” is in fact linked to the mainland via a floating bridge. It is only 50 meters long and at full hours opens for yachts passage. For this reason Lefkada is an easy accessible by car summer break away destination.
WHERE TO SWIM
Egremni beach was the finest as long as it was accessible by 350 steps which all collapsed in 2015 earthquake. However boats from Vasiliki and Agios Nikitas villages sail to this exotic beach leaving the visitors there for a couple of hours to swim. At the first glimpse of the Caribbean turquoise sea you soon realize it was worth the trip. The shingle beach of Porto Katsiki is a couple of miles south of Egremni. But at least there you can still find the 100 steps to reach one of the best beaches in the world. For this reason it’s more busy than Egremni especially between noon and 4 pm.
OTHER SUMMER BREAK AWAY BEACHES
Megali Petra is also a long pebble beach after Kalamitsi village. It’s accessible from a secret narrow path full of vegetation. The path starts from the road just prior the dead end at the parking area. Kathisma is another option after Agios Nikitas picturesque village. It’s a very long shingle beach very well-organized with sun beds and umbrellas. Finally Agios Ioannis pebble beach is a lovely one on the northwest coast. It’s the nearest to the capital Lefkada and suitable for families and surfers. Both Agios Ioannis and Kathisma are safe. They are easily accessible and very close to beach bars and restaurants.
WHERE TO EAT
The capital of the island Lefkada town, offers many options of cuisines. All the good standard restaurants are either on west or east waterfront. However if you prefer to feel like a local you should try traditional family taverns in villages on mountainous Lefkada.
