7 Great photos to inspire you to visit Lefkada, Greece

 

Travel Lefkada

Lefkada is one of the Ionian islands on the west coast of Greece.  Before travelling there I had never heard of the island known to the Greeks as Lefkas, and I'm Greek!  It sits north of its more well known sister island Kefalonia, and is a short ferry ride away from the historically famous island of Ithaca.

It's an island that is under developed, rustic and authentically Greek.  A hidden gem for water sports enthusiasts; they have some of the best wind in Europe on the island, which attracts the kite surfers and windsurfers to Lefkada.  It's a place where secluded beaches are really secluded, and the beautiful, colourful meadows that sit on the top of the mountains decorate the island with their beauty.

How to get there?

Easyjet's low cost airline now flies from the UK to Preveza, which is the closest airport to Lefkada and only approximately a 30 minute drive away.  So what are you waiting for?.  The local people of Lefkas will welcome you with open arms, and the beaches will forever live on in your memory as some of the worlds best.  So live the Greek lifestyle, and travel and explore this charming & pretty island for yourself.

Below are my favourite and best photographs taken on the island, to give you a taste of what to expect when you visit.
