“The sea, the sea, the sea. It rolled and rolled and called to me. Come in, it said, come in.”
― Sharon Creech, The Wanderer
Recently I visited Lefkada, one of the islands in the Ionian Sea on the west coast of Greece and I was fascinated by its spectacular nature. Some of the most beautiful beaches in the world are located on the island.
The first one, which will stay in my heart, is the Kathisma. The beach is located in the area of Agios Nikitas, near the main town of Lefkada. It offers endless beach strip and very fine sand, so I would strongly recommend Kathisma to people who loves the sand.
Of course, I couldn’t have missed putting Porto Katsiki on my list, one of the world’s top ten most beautiful beaches. The road that takes you there is very narrow, and full of tight turns. The word “katsiki” in the Greek language means goat and when you get there you find out why the beach is named that way. Because of that, you will see a spectacular landscape and crystal blue water.
Finally, the real surprise for me was Megali Petra Beach. Located in the western part of the island, the beach is like a pretty petite bijou, which fascinated me with its majestic cliffs. It’s a unique mix of pebbles, fine sand, and endless blue water which makes it, in my opinion, the most impressive seashore in Lefkada.
When you are planning your vacation in Lefkada, there is only one thing you should consider – you need a car. You can eighter go there by car or you can just rent one when you arrive. The island is 302 square kilometers and unfortunately, there are not many options for public transport.
I hope this post will be interesting and useful to you. Would you like to visit Lefkada or any other Greek island?
