Agios Ioannis chapel – Tsoukalades village
From the Agios Ioannis chapel, you can continue on foot until you arrive on a little path. Then, you proceed carefully over a pillbox built by Italian soldiers during the 2nd World War. The view from up there is breathless. Also, the place is ideal to take some souvenir photos of the surrounding area of your summer vacations. Just beside, after you descend a cement staircase, there is a small sandy beach. Its name is Krioneri which means cold water and it’s a favourite beach for the locals as well. For this reason, it’s an ideal place to swim and cool yourself there. It is recommended especially in very hot conditions.
Meanwhile, provided that you carry the appropriate equipment with you, proceed to the next beach called Kaminia. Of course you should have a backpack with athletic shoes, snacks, a bottle of water, hat, sun glasses and a sun cream as well. In order to reach this beach you can’t avoid immersing your feet in the sea. However, it’s only approx. a 15 minutes effort to reach this small and lovely beach. Usually locals from Tsoukalades village prefer swimming there.
After you have enjoyed swimming on Kaminia beach you can ascend the road that leads to Tsoukalades village. Just grab this chance for a walk in Lefkada countryside. It takes only 45 minutes approx. to reach the village from the beach. It’s also a good idea to have lunch at the village. However, afterwards you need someone to pick you up by car. Especially if earlier you have enjoyed some glasses of local wine or beer!!
