Guide to Lefkada

A magical place packed with exotic natural landscapes

Located in the heart of the Ionian sea, on the western side of Greece mainland lies Lefkada, an island so famously known for its crystalline turquoise waters, scenic beaches and picturesque towns. It is one of the most popular Ionian destinations thanks to its magnificent scenery, impressive monasteries, gorgeous seafront and mountainous villages that ooze a unique charm.

Boasting lush green landscapes that are distinctly beautiful all year round, Lefkada is home to numerous delightful destinations waiting to be explored. Onboard your luxury superyacht charter you will witness the panoramic views of the endless horizon and if you head further ashore, you can enjoy the traditional villages and some of the island's most remarkable mountains that are simply breathtaking. Take a visit to Dimosari Waterfalls of Nidri, with its ice cold waters, the falls offer a refreshing oasis during the hot summer afternoons. An easy trek takes you through a beautiful walk beside the towering rocks till you reach the mesmerising falls, which flow down to a cold pool which is sure to test your tolerance for the cold.

If it’s relaxation you’re searching for, there are many idyllic beaches that offer a sense of peaceful tranquillity. With the option to visit long, soft, sandy beaches or warm, pebbled coves of beauty, there are plenty of places to anchor down and enjoy the crystalline Mediterranean waters. Cruise to the south of the island and feast your eyes on the exotic bay of Porto Katsiki, with its impressive white cliffs and incredible blue water, it is a true treasure on the island. If you prefer a quieter beach, head to Egremni, a world-renowned bay that can only be accessed by boat and as the longest beach in Lefkada, finding a quiet spot to enjoy your privacy will not be an issue here. 

If there was a time to test your adrenaline then Lefkada is the place to do so. Many sport enthusiasts thrive here with the endless amounts of opportunities for kitesurfing, windsurfing and paragliding. See the island from a totally different perspective high up in the sky as you edge off a slope into the clouds and fly to the wonderful west coast. On the water, there are ample opportunities to snorkel, swim and explore the enticing caves around the area as well as trying your hand at all the other popular watersports on the island.

A visit to Lefkada town itself provides a perfect opportunity for shopping at quaint traditional shops, and scouting out all the local products from fine liquor to succulent honey, which are both unique to the island. Take a stroll through the Venetian-themed centre and enjoy a delectable meal in the romantic square. If you’re looking for a place to enjoy late night cocktails you will find plenty of trendy and chic bars in the town centre but if you’re wanting a totally authentic and original experience you must visit the luxurious sky bar, Fly Me. High above the clouds, this alfresco cocktail bar and restaurant allows you to relax and enjoy the evening sunset in style.
