white rock = lefkas, and that's what you are going to see on the cliffs about the beach area. its such a pitty the locals do not know how to preserve and promote their natural beauties like this one. don't visit in august, very hectic, forget about seeing european tourists, all you will get is noisy balkans.

We visited this beach on our first day because it was reccommended everywhere as the most beautiful in Lefkada. It is a nice beach, however not breathtaking. The water becomes deep near the shore. The road to the beach is ok, there is a 3EUR parking fee per day and there is a tavern where you can order food. It... More

A small beach, shaded till 11 o’clock, but you’ll be amazed: by the views – from the stairs, from the sea, as we booked a daily cruise (with the Makedonia Palace, see review), and also when swimming in those unbelievably turquoise waters! Be careful, though: the water gets deep very quickly, as in all beaches on the western coast. (No... More

I would rate egremni beach a little higher because its more secluded. A little less touristy also. But still the scenery here is awesome. Must visit on lefkas.

Really the most beautiful beach in Lefkada, the incredibly blue water, small pebbles, the rock all around - just awesome. The only problem is, everyone wants to be there. Under the stairs there is always a lot of people. Further from the stairs is better. The biggest disaster is when two big boats (Nidri star etc.) arrive and spit out... More

We heard that it is one of the most famous beach on Lefkada, but I prefer Eggremni more than Katsiki. Katsiki is a much smaller beach, therefore it was a bit squeezed with people. Half of the beach does not get sun light until noon. The food from local eatery was very bad!

My son and I have been to many beaches on Greek Islands and this would rank as in the top 5. If you take away the people on the beach it is beautiful feature with a backdrop of almost white cliffs. It’s fairly easy to get to and if you go very late in the evening, in late August the... More

First if all, you have to pay $5 to park your car. The guts running the parking lot rush you and are very impatient when it comes to you parking safely. Secondly, the cantina workers, where they sell drinks, chips, water, etc are VERY RUDE! I have been 3 times and this will be my last. Perhaps it is because... More

Porto Katsiki is ranked as the most beautiful beach in Lefkada by most of the sites. As you can expect, because of all this publicity it is extremely crowded. There are no sunbeds or umbrellas there, but there are some bars (up the stairs) that have on beach delivery for beverages and some food. The view from those terraces is... More

This place was amazing. The scenery is stunning. There are steps up the cliff with tavernas at the top, and you can walk along a little bridge out over a cliff with wonderful views down to the beach. Really good for swimming too.
