Lovely Lefkas holidays 2021

If you’re looking for a Greek holiday destination for sun, sand and relaxation then Lefkas, also known as Lefkada, is an ideal choice. Located in the Ionian Sea just off the western coast of Greece, Lefkas is one of the lesser-known Greek islands and something of a well-kept secret with canny tourists.

Lefkas gives you the incredible views, beautiful weather and great attractions of the busier Greek Islands without the bustling crowds and traffic. There are a few remaining traditional fishing villages that formerly covered the coast of Lefkas, including famously picturesque Lygia and Aghios Nikitas with shingle bays, pine-topped hills and authentic Greek markets to explore.

The waters surrounding Lefkas are naturally very warm and have a glistening blue surface, the ideal setting for a pleasant dip in the water out towards the island of Meganissi, and for enjoying water sports with your family and friends. The authentic towns of Nidri and Nikiani are popular with tourists because of their original rustic charm.

With short, cheap flights and a phenomenal array of accommodation options (including all-inclusive hotels and self-catering villas), Lefkas is a fantastic choice for your 2021 escape.

While the beautiful beaches are certainly one of Lefkas’ major draws for tourists in 2021, Lefkada has far more to offer than simply lounging around on the beach all day. Lefkas’ most popular resorts are scattered along its eastern coast, with Nidri being the biggest, but the resort of Nikiana is also popular. Whether you’re an avid photography buff or an amateur snapper, make sure you bring along your camera as Lefkas is one of the most photo-friendly islands in all of Greece.

Nidri used to be a fishing village and has a lovely authentic Greek ambience with plenty of traditional charm, sailboats and fishing boats to watch anchoring off shore and a number of welcoming authentic fish tavernas, restaurants and family-friendly cafes. There are plenty of great shops in Lefkada Town, the capital of Lefkada, where you can find brands ranging from budget-friendly high street names to designers like Dior and Gucci.

Some of the main points of interest on the island include the Lefkada Monastery of Faneromeni, the Lighthouse Doukato, Castle of Agia Maura and the Watermill of Lefkadas.



Most people come to Lefkas to enjoy the gorgeous beaches, with some of the most famously beautiful beaches in all of Greece located here. Porto Katisi is the most popular beach in Lefkas and is arguably one of the best the Mediterranean has to offer. The beach has very impressive tree-topped white cliffs, warm sands and incredible blue waters.

Egremni is around 40 kilometres to the south west of Lefkada Town and one of the most lovely beaches on the island. This beach has a huge expanse of sand and clear blue waters, but families and those with walking difficulties should be aware that there are steep steps to access the beach.

For a particularly family-friendly beach, try Kathisma, which is located 15 kilometres to the south west of Lefkada Town. This extensive beach is sandy and has beautiful waters for swimming and paddling, with easy access for children and those with walking difficulties. The most visited beach resort in Lefkas is undoubtedly Aghios Ioannis, which is just a few kilometres west of the town area. The beach has good facilities and is easy to access, but it’s worth bearing in mind that this beach is popular with kitesurfers and windsurfers due to strong winds that blow frequently in this area which may not be suitable for some visitors including the elderly and very young.
