An eyepopping tint of dazzling blue, Porto Katsiki isn't just one of Greece's most splendid beaches (a feat in itself, given the country's staggering array of heart-stoppingly pretty pebble and sand delights) but widely regarded as one of the best in the entire Mediterranean.
Located on the southern tip of the lush Lefkada isle, one of the Ionian gems, reaching this majestic spot by superyacht is a breeze compared to accessing the beach by any other means. It's a keen advantage you should certainly make the most of — other visitors will need to trek a vertiginous staircase comprising of some 100 steps, etched into the ochre cliffs.
However, this doesn't put off the crowds descending in the blazing summer. Make no bones about it, this is a perennial favorite in Lefkada, but ultimately no trip to the Ionian isle is complete without a visit here. If escaping the crowds is preferred, cruise towards Porto Katsiki in the early morning for a refreshing dip or late in the afternoon as the sunsets.
As for the best months to admire its aquamarine shores, May-June and September-October are when the beach is at its most exquisite — and most subdued.
A sprawling speck of fine pearl-white pebbles, Porto Katsiki abounds with plush sunbeds and umbrellas. There's plenty of spots ideal for sun admirers and shady ones under soaring limestone cliffs, but to really enjoy its grandeur, enjoy the translucent blues from your sundeck, in between snorkelling and exploring the marine secrets deep below the surface.
Thrillseekers and sunworshippers alike will adore Porto Katsiki, often considered to be the "Caribbean of Greece". It's certainly a little slice of Mediterranean heaven
