Lefkas is one of the Ionian Islands. This was our second visit to the Island with the first being just a fleeting visit for a couple of hours when we were on the Ionian Island Cruise from Kefalonia. We stayed in the resort of Nidri which is situated on the East Coast (also spelt Nydri ) It is the main tourist resort on the Island halfway between the town of Lefkada where the Island is connected by a long causeway and a floating bridge and Vassiliki. You arrive at Preveza airport on the mainland and the transfer to Nidri is about 35 minutes. NIdri is surrounded by mountains and the views across the bay to the other Islands of Meganissi and Scorpios are beautiful


This is the floating bridge that connects Lefkas to Mainland Greece. This was taken on our way back to the airport on our homeward journey and as you can see right in front is the mainland


This picture of the harbour and the tavernas and shops in the background was taken from boat when we were leaving Nidri to go on the 7 Island Boat Trip
