Lefkada is a wondrous green and mountainous island with some really great small hotels and places to stay. The coast offers several stunning sandy beaches as well as protected little coves, while the inland is a heaven for walkers. The main town of Lefkada is on the northern tip of the island. It is friendly and lively, but it doesn’t make my top-10 of charming island towns. The east and south coast of the island is lined with beautiful bays, small ports and seaside villages, and little coves and beaches. The western coast is wild and green, and barely developed. This is where you will find the most amazing beaches. Porto Katsiki all the way south is the best known and perhaps the most beautiful of the lot, but if you come during the busy summer months it gets very crowded. But you do have to go and see it once at least… Tempting as it may be, don’t spend all of your holidays on the beach. Do also schedule some time to explore the rest of the island. The landscape is fabulous and you will come across some beautiful little mountain villages.
