Places to visit on Lefkada Island, Greece.
Sightseeing on Lefkas visiting small fishing ports and also villages up in the Lefkada mountains.
Vassiliki Town on Lefkada Island - Greece. Vassiliki is located close to the bottom of Lefkada Island and the town and harbour are very orientated towards yachts etc.
There are plenty of tavernas and some shops - there are several stoney beaches scattered around the immediate area of the town.
There did seem to be a lot of "villa" building going on so presumably the location will just expand - assuming buyers can be found for all these so called villas of course.
The nice little Lefkada Town and Fishing Harbou of Nidri. Nidri is around half way down the island and sort of sprawls along the coast for a while - however it is not a maze of streets etc and actually a really pleasant town.
Most people use the original road for going through the town - this is located one street up from the front. The outside rim of the town has it's own by-pass -
sadly this never quite got finished and does not actually do anything useful apart from make it easier for the herders to move their sheep and goats around.
During the evening a fair part of the road on the front is closed to traffic - well as per usual this depends on who you are of course. There are lots of
tavernas along the front of which we tried 7 different ones and found in each great menu choice, lots of well cooked food served and the usual Greek Taverna
friendliness of the taverna staff was fit and well still. House red was in plentiful supply although there was quite a variation in the price - and we found that the quality varied quite a bit and not particularly dependant on the price if you follow.
Lefkas Town on Lefkada Island in Greece.
Mentioned for obvious reasons i.e. because it's the Island's Capital but of the three attempts made to visit the place the
heavens opened and we had thunder & electric storms - perhaps a divine hint to stay away but we did not get much opportunity to look around. There is of course no reason to think that the Town
is not just as good as anywhere else on the Island for good tavernas and food etc. etc. Much of the town is pedestrianised and you have to walk in from one of two
municipal car parks located either side on the way in. (pedestrianised of course means that nobody should be driving around etc. - although this does not apparently include local Greeks..)
