A must visit when you are in Lefkada. Wonderful turquoise water and white sand. Is one of the best beaches in Mediterranean. In August the water is warm and you can stay in see for hours. Take care only to have a good sun protection creme because or you can end up red :-)

What a place. Clear blue water and beach are beautiful, although a very popular attraction therefore very busy.

The roads are crazy narrow.. So motorbike or small car suggested! Parking is 5€.. Short walk to the steps down to the beach! Make sure you... More

When we arrived, my wife and I both remembered the scene of the movie "The Beach" when Leo and friends had finally made it to their destination, a gorgeous and glorious beach! Well with the trip to get there. Bring an umbrella or pick one up when you get there.

This beach is probably most beautiful on Lefkada but it is so commercialized. It is so many visitors, boats with tourists coming in the bay, almost on the beach and then start big crowd in the water. They will charge you for parking and on the beach are so many people who selling something (food, drinks, tourist tours etc) so... More

Very beautiful place. The road is narrow and it takes a while to get there but the view is worth the effort. It is very hot, the water is very deep and it has a lot of waves. Children cannot swim at this beautiful beach.

If you 're visiting Lefkada Island you gotta visit this beach, one of the best in Greece and overall world...It's easily accessible by following the signs and offers a truly splendid view, crystal clear waters and a of course a great swim and dinner in the tavern at the top of the mountain. Around a hundred steps lead down to... More
