Things to do

Making furry friends in Faneromeni

You'll never be short of good views in Lefkada. However, if you want a really great view, make your way to the southernmost point of the island, to Doukato Lighthouse at Cape Lefkatas, which has spectacular views of undulating white cliffs and the nearby islands of Ithaca and Kefalonia. Near the northernmost point of Lefkada, you'll come across the 13th-century ruins of Agia Marva. And if you want to do something the kids will enjoy, or if you just like furry animals, then check out the serene Monastery οf Faneromeni, which has a small petting zoo among its beautiful grounds.

Activities

Bike or board—take your pick in Lefkada

Many visitors come to Lefkada for its secluded beaches alone. Picturesque Egremni Beach is 1 of the island's most popular—just make sure you make the boat in time (it's not accessible by foot). Along the island's east coast you'll find surfers riding some gnarly waves off the busy town of Nydri, while in the southern town of Vasiliki, kiteboarders and windsurfers make the most of the super thermal winds that steadily blow throughout the summer. For the land lovers among you, there are guided bike tours to suit all levels of fitness, skill and confidence.

Weather

Lefkada—you expect sunshine, you get sunshine

It's a Greek island, what else is there to say! It would be pretty strange to expect anything other than great weather. Its Meditarannean climate means Lefkafa experiences mild winters and warm, dry summers. Lefkada's hottest month of the year is August, which has average highs in the mid to high 80s. It's still warm into late fall with October experiencing average highs in the lows 70s. As you'd also expect of a Greek island, Lefkada can get pretty busy in the summer months, so if you to save on your Lefkada vacation rental, try late spring or early fall.

Natural features

Lefkada—drive it, hike it, love it

Lefkada is among the Ionian Islands, and lies just off the west coast of mainland Greece. It's the only Greek island that you can drive to—a small floating bridge connects Lefkada to the mainland. You'll find it's worth your while to bring some sturdy shoes. The geography of Lefkada is mountainous, lush in some parts, and barren in others, which makes it a great hiking spot.
