Lefkada, the green island of the
Ionian island of poets
is the only island linked by bridge to mainland Greece. The foot of the hill leads to a sheltered, pebble-filled bay, Mikros Gialos.
Mikros Gialos is perhaps one of the most picturesque and unspoilt of these "strings of pearls" - a traditional Lefkadan seaside village at the head of the bay complete with a gem of a beach. Striking old houses are characteristic here, connected by a myriad of narrow alleyways and paths leading to the local shops and tavernas serving appetising traditional Greek cuisine
In the region of Mikros Gialos are restaurants with fresh fish from the fishing boats of the village
, Mini Market, and sea craft to explore the bay. The area is ideal for a carefree stay away from the busy city life, combining crystal clear and calm sea with the overall harmony of nature.
