We have arrived early in the morning which is something I would recommend to all visitors, as the parking is filling up fast and the payment is between 3 and 5 EUR per car. If you intend to stay the whole day, then after climbing down 100 stairs, keep on the right hand side and you can have natural shade... More

The beach is very beautiful and one should defenetly visit it if Lefkada. But in order to enjoy it, go prepared! The road leading up to is very sinous and narrow, the plus side being that there is a parking lot, where a number of booths are located, selling ice cream, juice and snacks. The 100 steps going down are... More

Porto Katsiki has some serious issues but i simply had to give it 5 stars not just because this beach looks very exotic for Europe, but also it feels exotic because it's dangerous, wild and if it was in some western countries, might not have been open to the public at all. It's really a crazy place. There are about... More

Wow....amazing sea, amazing landscape. It's not very easy to swim if there are big waves, the entry and exit from the water is a little bit difficult. In the mid day gets very hot. The steps are easy to climb. Road is not that difficult. I would say best beach in Greece. A must see.

Road is a little bir narrow and too much turns but when you see " azzurro blue" waters of ionian sea easy to forget everything..after 50 steps downstairs a... More

It is the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. The water was clean, there weren't waves, unlike the other beaches like Egremni, Gialos, Milos beach or Kathisma and it's a real enjoy to be there. But if you are going with kids be careful, because it's a deep water.
