Your guide to Nidri holidays
Nidri is nestled in an area of memorable natural beauty, which visitors can explore in numerous ways. The town’s cafes, shops and restaurants are positioned around a picturesque harbour, featuring unassuming fishing boats and luxury yachts alike. Nidri’s a top sailing destination, hosting a Regatta and other waterfront events throughout the year. Wander through Nidri’s narrow streets and alleys, lined with whitewashed houses, overflowing flowerboxes and traditional blue-domed churches. You can stop off at the local museum, which features relics from the Neolithic era.
One of the top natural attractions considered a must-see during any holidays in Nidri are the local waterfalls. The Nidri Waterfalls are located just 2km outside of the village, with protruding cliffs and crashing falls leading down into a placid pool. You can bathe here or cool down with a dip under the waterfall itself. Hike to the top and you’ll be rewarded for your efforts with a local café and sweeping views of the countryside.
In addition to the allure of its waterfalls and harbour, Nidri’s beach draws visitors from across Lefkada. With pure white sand and crystal-clear waters, it’s a prime destination for relaxation. Palm trees sway in the gentle breeze and provide shade from the bright Grecian sunshine. The beach feels secluded, yet offers plenty of tourist facilities including bars, cafes and restaurants. Enjoy views over the water to neighbouring islets and the mainland, or simply admire the sunset. There’s a water sports centre here with jet skis and sea kayaks available for hire. The area’s favourable wind conditions make it an ideal spot for windsurfing and sailing as well.
If you tire of Nidri’s main beach, it’s not far to other destinations including the award-winning beach at Porto Katsiki. This famous beach, with its crescent-shaped stretch of white sand overlooked by imposing rocky cliffs, can be accessed by boat from Nidri. Boats line the water’s edge in Nidri, making it easy to jet off on a spontaneous excursion.
