Except Lefkada, the Eptanisa are made up of Zakinthos, Kefalonia, Kerkyra, Paxi, Kythera and Ithaki. Lefkada is the fourth largest Greek island, after Zakynthos, Kefalonia and Corfu. Its capital city is also called Lefkada. The island is separated from mainland only by a narrow canal, Drepanos, 50 meters wide. There is a long boardwalk and a floating bridge connecting Lefkada with land, which makes it the only Greek island, except Evia, accessible by car. It is surrounded by nine satellite islands, including Meganisi, Kastos, Kalamos, Madouri and Skorpios, the island of Aristotle Onassis family. Lefkada has an area of about 300 square kilometers and coastline of 117 kilometers. Every year, especially during summer months, thousands of tourists from Greece and abroad visit Lefkada to enjoy its mild climate, beautiful beaches, spectacular mountains, clean sea, amazing waterfalls, and to explore the island’s rich culture and charming traditional villages.
Lefkada boasts some of the most world-famous and beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean, renowned for their sparkling blue waters, lush surrounding landscapes and dramatic geological formations. From Kathisma beach, one of the longest beachfronts in the island, to the fascinating beauty of Porto Katsiki, to the postcard beauty of Egremni beach with its cliff backdrop and the large sandy cove of Pefkoulia near the fishing village of Agios Nikitas, you can be rest assured that Lefkada’s beaches will fill you with unforgettable memories.
