Forbes: Egremni beach Lefkada among Covid safest in Europe
Once again this time according to Forbes magazine, Egremni beach is in travel headline news. This time as number 5 on the top list of safest European beaches during pandemic!! However, the local authorities have not characterized the new road as safe yet. In particular, that part of the road which leads to the new big staircase of the beach. At the moment, this part is closed to the public traffic. However, the visitors can walk the 1 Km road until the new staircase. Of course, it goes without saying that the new staircase is much more safe and convenient than the old one which collapsed during the 2015 earthquake. Today, one thing is still pending. The official approval of the road’s safety by engineers of the public authorities. Hence, so far the safest access to the beach remains the one by boat.
In other words, if you try to access the beach on foot then you should be there early in the morning at 10 a.m. the most to find parking. Also don’t forget to take a big bottle of water with you and wear convenient athletic shoes. In my opinion, with the new road still closed, the beach is not recommended for families with kids and people who are not fit enough. However, swimming to Egremni beach is a lifetime experience. For this reason, take as many pictures you can to treasure these moments forever!!
