Most Beautiful Beaches in Lefkada, Greece (II)
It’s difficult to say which is the best beach in Greece. Which is the best for kids? Which is the best for swimming? Which is the best for partying? You don’t have to go through all that any more. Cheap Travel Hunter helps you decide where to go. Follow our series of the most beautiful beaches in Lefkada, Greece:
Ammoussa Beach is very close to Vasiliki. You can reach it by diverting off the main road, at the village of Marantohori. It is a small, pebbled beach, which has a tavern, a café and accommodation.
The Atherinos Fjords is one of the most popular mooring sites for yachts, because the waters here are like a swimming pool. You can reach it by car from Katomeri (1km), or from Vathy (2km). The beach of Fanari at the Atherinos Cape is one of the most beautiful beaches in Lefkada, Greece and offers canteen facilities.
Located within a bay on the external side of the Vlyhos peninsula, Desimi is only 5km away from Nydri. It’s a small, pebbled beach, ideal for canoeing. There are many caves along its shores, which you can explore. Desimi also has two campsites nearby.
Egremni is probably the most amazing beach in Lefkada. Insanely wide and with a stunning landscape, it is located 30km away from the Centre of Lefkada. It’s large, sandy and surrounded by steep cliffs, hence its name Egremni, meaning ‘Cliffs’. The scenery reminds visitors of the Caribbean, since the waters have a light turquoise color and are crystal clear. There is a canteen just after the parking lot and another one on the beach, right after you go down the steps. You may rent out sun beds and umbrellas, although the cliffs surrounding the beach offer plenty of shade most of the day. Access to the beach requires going down 350 steps. Alternatively, you can reach Egremni with a tourist boat departing either from Vasiliki or Nydri. Nevertheless, if you have decided to come to the beach, the scenery and the waters will reward you. Once you’ve got here, there’s no excuse to miss the sunset!
The beach of Gialos is on the west side of the island, at short walking distance from Egremni. It’s an endless beach and a favorite for campers. It’s at least 3km long, probably the longest, and definitely one of the most beautiful beaches in Lefkada. The rocky, wild scenery in combination with the blue sea offer a unique surrounding environment. Even though access to the beach is not easy since the road is narrow and winding, the natural beauty will reward you. The beach has a canteen and a tavern.
