The island of Lefkada is located in Greece’s west coast, surrounded by the Ionian sea, approximately halfway between Corfu to the north and Ithaca and Kephalonia to the south.
At just 35km long and 15km wide, it is connected to the mainland by a floating bridge. The azure, transparent waters of the Ionian Sea, the sandy beaches or the secluded pebbly coves and white cliffs are a real attraction.
The island’s green, wooded interior is also very much worth exploring, with beautiful scenery, great walking paths, mountains rising to over 1100m and traditional villages, whose way of life remains connected to Lefkada’s ancient traditions and customs.
The main town on the island, Lefkada, has a pretty maze of lively streets with lots of shops, restaurants and bars and a popular marina.
