The blue flag beaches of Lefkas
Lefkada amazes visitors with the exotic blue colour of its beaches. Called by many "the Carribean of Greece", this island is a very popular summer resort with many things to offer its visitors. Parties for the youths, excellent spots for windsurfers, organized watersports, quiet spots for relaxation, and plenty of sightseeing.
Lefkada is green and mountainous, connected to the mainland by a bridge. The neighbouring islands can be visited by boat, as well as the famous –but private- Scorpio, Onassis' island. Visitors will find both sandy and pebbled beaches, some of them quiet, others more suited to people who want to have fun and party.
On the western coast of the island, its beaches stand out for the wonderful colour and the impressive landscape, particularly Porto Katsiki, Egremni and Kathisma.
