Lefkada features a very scenographic coastline where you can find beautiful long sandy beaches but also lovely hidden caves and picturesque bays accessible only by the sea. Moreover, Lefkada is located in an area of stunning natural beauties where many other islands and islets stand. Just opposite Nidri there are the so-called islands of the Prince’s Arcipelago. They include Skorpios, in the past the residence of the greek magnate Aristotelis Onassis. But also immaculate and fascinating places such as Madouri, the islet of the greek poet Valaoritis. The stunning Meganisi, the wild Kastos and Kalamos with their unique and picturesque bays and small harbours. And this is just to name a few.
Furthermore, in less than 1,30 hour by boat you can also reach two other amazing Ionian Islands such as Ithaka and Kefalonia.
