Great deals on holidays to Lefkada, the Caribbean of Greece
Table of contents
Famous for its breathtaking beaches, this Greek Island in the Ionian Sea is sure to win over the most discerning traveller.
The first thing every traveller notices when arriving in Lefkada is the unbelievably intense blue of the sea. It is no wonder that its turquoise waters have won the island its reputation as the Caribbean of Greece! In fact, this small Greek island offers a surprisingly varied landscape, from the impressive White Mountains to quiet coves and verdant inland groves. It may be small, but there is something here for everyone. Connected to the mainland via a bridge, Lefkada is easily reached by car. Despite being so accessible, it remains one of the most pristine spots in the Ionian archipelago. The island’s old way of life is intact, especially in the small villages of the Sfakiotes region. Spend an afternoon wandering among the enticing cobbled streets, ancient olive groves and romantic churches, some of them dating back to the 17th century!
If mountain villages seem like too much hard work on a sweltering summer afternoon, you can always stay on one of the island’s many stunning beaches. Soak up the sun, or enjoy the many water sport activities on offer, such as windsurfing in Vassiliki or kite surfing at the Agios Ioannis beach. Alternatively, explore the island’s beautiful capital city, Lefkada Town. A hub of activity and culinary delights, it is the perfect place to soak up the island’s culture!
If you are visiting during August, check out the spectacular International Folklore Festival, which showcases traditional dance and music. Have dinner in a local taverna, sampling Greek classics, as well as local specialities, such as creamy lentils and fish cooled with an unripe grape sauce. Afterwards, stroll along the busy Marina, or, if you feel like staying up late, head to one of the many wine and cocktail bars. Lefkada's local wine is definitely worthy of your attention!
