Why go to Lefkas

Beautiful forests top the remote centre of this sleepy Ionian gem that is home to some of the finest beaches in Greece. Lefkas holidays are everything that’s great about a break in the Greek islands – lazy days in the sun, stunning scenery, exquisite beaches and memorable hospitality.

Holidays in Lefkas will quickly melt your heart and leave you dreaming of the days spent on its magnificent beaches...

Just off the west coast of mainland Greece, the island of Lefkas has a mountainous interior draped with olive groves, vines and pine. Beyond the alleyways of northern Lefkas Town are resorts like family-friendly Nidri to the east and southern windsurfing mecca Vassiliki.

Along the west coast, cliffs plunge to crescent-shaped bays and the bluest of seas. It’s here where you’ll find some of the best beaches you’re likely to encounter anywhere in Greece.

Amid the ancient history that penetrates every part of Lefkas, you’ll find that Lefkas Town – also known as Lefkada Town – is quite modern, with plenty in the way of shops. Unlike the rest of the island, it sports a very modern demeanour.

Food lovers and fans of windsurfing should look at holidays to Vasiliki. This delightful bay in the south of the island offers some of the best windsurfing in the Med. The bay is also dotted with exceptional fish restaurants.

If you’re seeking tranquillity, consider holidays in Nikiana. This laid-back fishing village can be found on the east coast and boasts a couple of local restaurants as well as being close to a fine collection of outstanding beaches. You could take peace and quiet to another level altogether if you were to hop on the ferry for the 20-minute journey to Meganissi. This island – populated by fewer than 2,000 people – has only the basics, but Meganissi holidays provide the opportunity for really getting away from it all.
