Tourist Attractions

During your stay in Lefkada you will have the chance to do a lot of sightseeing since sites are very close to each other. Every day cruises start from the port of Nidri for touring around and having the opportunity to swim at the islands of Scorpio, Madouri, Meganisi, Ithaca and Caphalonia. Also, Dimosari waterfalls, near Nidri, will take your breath away. The tourist attraction Nidri with its homonymous capital and the mountainous Lefkada, both travel the visitor through time in different eras of history and civilization. The visitor will be hypnotized by the natural beauty of the scenery. Similarly, in Western Lefkada, there are beaches with global reputation such as Porto-katsiki and Egremni. The crystal turquoise waters and the white shingle will definitely impress the tourists who will enjoy swimming in unbelievably clean waters that have fairly been awarded with the blue flag as two of the world's best beaches.
One visit in dusk at the Kavo of Kyra or at the cape of Lefkatas, with its enormous cliffs will thrill you. Equally impressive is the sunset, the view of the Ionian Sea and the islands from the mountainous Eglovi, walking through the gorge of Melissa and learning the customs of the island (bucolic weddings in Karya, folk dances). On August the festivals of Speech and Art that have been taking place in the island for 49 years will excite you. During these festivals folk music and dancing performances from all around the world as well as theatrical plays take place too.
For sports lovers, Lefkada can make your vacation full of action. In Vasiliki there is a windsurfing club. Vasiliki's bay and the beach of Ai Giannis are ideal places for windsurfing. Other sports like parapente, mountain biking, hiking and mountain climbing will fulfill the needs of the most demanding visitors due to the rich mountainous nature of Lefkada's hinterland.
