The Greek island of Lefkada

If there is a place that I love for a vacation, it is an island … and I live in one!, But I love knowing that wherever I go I will find a beach, in addition to the fact that nature on the beaches is always spectacular . And if we talk about the island and beauty, it is clear that we have to talk about the Greek islands , a destination that is increasingly chosen, especially by all those who take a cruise and who take the opportunity to get to know many of them.

One of these Greek islands is Lefkada , which is one of the smallest in size but has some of the most spectacular beaches in Greece. An island full of magic in which there is more than 100 kilometers of coastline and a beautiful landscape that on many occasions reminds the Spanish island of Menorca. You can take many excursions to get to know the whole island from the port of Nidri , a place from which you can also travel in a very short time to neighboring islands such as Spati, Itaca, Meganisi or Maduri, all of them very traditional and with incredible charm.

Lefkada stands out for its mountainous and green geography that is very rich in vegetation and that all this makes a spectacular contrast with the fine sand beaches and crystal clear waters that you can find along the entire coast. In addition, there are a lot of historical monuments in many places and the roads are of a high quality, something to take into account when visiting an island since you will probably travel it by car.

Among the best beaches that you can find is that of Egremni , south of Athani and which has impressive white cliffs, so it leaves you with a spectacular landscape and a lot of tranquility since it is a beach that never gets crowded, partly thanks to the More than 300 steps that you must walk from when you leave the car until you reach the beach, which throws a lot of people back but if you can do it, do not hesitate.

Porto Katsiki beach is the best if you are traveling as a family as it is easily accessible and has nearby entertainment venues such as shops, bars and restaurants. Pefkoulia beach is the most visited by campers as there is a pine forest where you can camp. The ideal time to travel to Lefkada is from September as it is when temperatures are milder and prices are much lower than in summer.
