Discover charming whitewashed villages and ancient olive groves in the hills or stick to the rugged coastline for secluded bays and exhilarating watersports. Lefkada may be joined to the mainland by a narrow isthmus but it has all the abundant beauty you would expect from a Greek island.
It is generally warm and sunny in Lefkada for most of the year, with up to 14 hours of sunshine in the summer months between June and August. Water temperatures for diving and swimming are also highest in August, with an average of around 25˚. This is also peak tourist season, when booking flights and hotels can be a little more expensive. Visit in September for reduced rates and milder temperatures.

Aktion National Airport is the main air hub serving both Preveza and Lefkada. It’s a small but perfectly serviceable airport with a selection of bars, shops and other facilities. There are buses running from the airport to Lefkada. However, outside the high tourism season they can be infrequent, so it might be a good idea to hire a car. Taxis are also available outside the terminal building.
A choice or airlines run regular and seasonal cheap flights to Lefkada from the UK.
There are buses on the island but they can be irregular. You’ll find taxis in most of the main resort towns but don’t rely on these to pick you up if you head off the beaten track. If you really want to explore the rugged coast and enigmatic interior, a hire car is usually the best option.
The beautiful former capital of Karya has retained much of its original character, with the more resort-based larger towns of Nydri and Vassilliki featuring mostly sympathetic developments around their large bays.
Inland you’ll find sleepy but traditional whitewashed villages where life has remained mostly unchanged for centuries.
The beaches are the island’s real stars, so don’t miss the turquoise waters of Egremni and the shingle shore at Porto Katsiki.
You won’t need a visa for travel to Greece and it is three hours ahead of GMT. Try and carry some cash with you at all times as few establishments on the island accept cards and ATMs are often out of order.
