The most beautiful and popular beach of Lefkada. Excellent view. Clean water with blue-green colors. You must walk from parking about 100 - 150 meters. The view from the top is unbelievable. Also you can drink and eat at the restaurants on the top.

Lefkas is full of some of the best beaches in greece, if not the world. When you arrive at Porto Katsiki you will understand why. This beach has everything for a perfect day at the beach. Beautiful water and scenery, food and atmosphere. You will not be disappointed.

Yep, you must see this beach!! The beauty is seriously unbelievable.....but unless you like wall to wall people, just stop by to see it and head on to another beach. You can see everything you need to see from up top, so if you have older travelers or infants just visit and have a bite to eat at one of... More

The only reason to visit this beach is because you have heard a lot about it. It is not much more beautiful than Egremni or Kathisma (the other 2 landmarks of Lefkada) but it is much more crowded !!! Try to go there early in the morning (the latest by 10am or after 6 pm in the afternoon) if you... More

We went the 2 times in our 7 day stay in Lefkada. Once by atv and once with a boat trip. We had more fun when we went on our own cause there where less tourists and we had the beach for our self. With the boat trip we stayed around 1 hour. Not too much time. You better bring... More

car park fee E$3 no time limit. there are places to eat and drink on top of the cliff. Take your snorkel and don't forget the camera, this beach is breathtaking. The water is super clear and the beach white and clean. It would be cheaper if you take your own water instead of buying it.

Porto Katsiki is absolutely unique. Its stunningly beautiful and has to be visited when on Lefkada. However: - The beach is not actually that big and gets very crowded - The sun doesn't hit the beach till about midday - The water is not clear but cloudy and the sea is usually not calm I would suggest to get there...
