Lefkada Island Travel Guide 2023, Greece (with Map & Photos)

Lefkada is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. Although it is one of the few Greek islands that can be reached on your own, Lefkada remains surprisingly unaffected by tourism. It is a charming place to spend a few days, the hills still hide old villages and wild olive groves, and the coast has some amazing beaches.

Not just for swimming...


Lefkada Island has much more to offer than just excellent sailing conditions. The mountain scenery and hidden valleys give us plenty of hiking and biking trails, ideal for hiding from the heat of the summer sun, among the shade of the trees.

Vasiliki Bay in the south of Lefkada is also one of the most popular windsurfing and kitesurfing destinations in the world.
Looking for an event to celebrate a special occasion? Why not paragliding from the top of the island?!

However, if you want to relax, then why not visit some of the world- famous and award-winning beaches on the island's west coast. Breathtaking, blue landscapes and impressive rocky coastline will seem like a completely different island to you.
