"Amazing palette of blue..." Top 5 Page for this destination Lefkas Island by Sojna

Lefkas Island Travel Guide: 139 reviews and 304 photos

Famous, but unpretentious

Lefkada derives its name from the ?leuko? (white) color of the sand and the ground. How is this going to affect your holidays? Well, just imagine that the sparkling white of the sand, in its turn, gives the sea an incredible color palette, ranging from turquoise to deep blue. Practically, Lefkada?s beaches are among the best in Greece and they are often displayed on the cover of top international tourist magazines.
On the other hand, there are so more things to discover on this amazing island, the only one that you can actually drive to, thanks to the canal bridge, that connects Lefkada with the mainland: Beautiful mountain villages, long cultural heritage and ? on top of all ? warm hospitality by lefkadian people.

General info about Lefkada's beaches

As a general info, one should know that Lefkada? s western coastline is more ?wild?, with deep waters and breathtaking blue color. But the access is not always easy and on certain days the sea can be wavy and hazy.
The eastern beaches are easier to get to, most of them have pebbles and are surrounded by hotels and touristic villages. But the water is still very clear and attractive.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Blue, turquoise, cyan, azure, aquamarine...!
  • Cons:Still searching...
  • In a nutshell:Do, cross that bridge!
