Fresh Water And Salt Water Delights
Unique to Lefkada, the spectacular waters are not exclusive to the sea. Here there are waterfalls and even lakes to explore.
Waterfalls Of Nydri: On the outskirts of Nydri village is one of the largest waterfalls on Lefkada. The water from this waterfall ends up in Dimossari gorge, making a beautiful swimming lake between gauged out white rocks. While you’re here, be sure to explore Nydri village, which is actually a seaside village with a popular sandy beach offering views out to the private island of Skorpios.
Lefkada Sea Lakes: Not far from Lefkada Town, there are various lagoons that attract seasonal migratory birds. The lakes are protected, but easy to walk around on the outskirts to see what wildlife you can spot.
Porto Katsiki Beach: On the south of the island, Porto Katsiki Beach offers dramatic landscapes with rugged white cliffs that tower over the sea, on top of which is lush green vegetation and below are the turquoise waters of the Ionian sea. This spot is popular among photographers and sunbathers alike.
Vassiliki Beach: Where the reliable winds blow all year round, Vassiliki Beach is where you will find the windsurfers gliding over the water, mastering the elements. Whether you’re a windsurfer or not, this is a great spot to pull out your own water toys and enjoy an active day on the water.
While onshore, be sure to stop and visit:
The Lighthouse Of Lefkas: Perched atop Cape Ducato, the lighthouse was built in 1913 and offers captivating views out to the Ionian Sea. If the conditions are just right, you can see all the way to the islands of Kefalonia and Ithaca.
Monastery Of Saint Nicolas: Constructed for Saint Nicolas in 1087 A.D., this small church became an important monument both for the island’s agriculture and religion. Visitors are welcome to stroll the grounds, drink lemonade with the nuns and buy products from onsite beehives and gardens.
Church Of Agios Ioannis Antzoussis: A breathtaking sight, this church is built into the rocks at Agios Ioannis Antzoussis beach. It is the oldest church on the island, dating back to the 16th century. Inside, guests are welcome to explore rare Byzantine paintings of Orthodox saints.
Lefkas Earth Winery: Apart from its natural and structural beauty, Lefkada is a wine-producing island, and Lefkas Earth Winery offers tours to walk you through their winemaking process with two grape varieties that are unique to the island: Vardea and Vertzami. From these grapes, they produce wines of all varieties – dry or sweet, white, red, or rosé.
