“A beach u should definitely visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

This is my favorite beach in lefkada because it combines the great Ionian blue water with good facilities. It is really near to nudri and I always visit one of the great fish tavernas which are exactly in front.

“"Calm Waters Always Great for Kids"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Before starting my review, I'd like to note "Poros Beach" and "Mikros Gialos" are the same beach!!.... Poros is the village "hidden" in the hill above the beach BTW, and you'll pass it (on your left before heading down). If you're into pics (see the one enclosed), be sure to continue on towards the church on top of the hill in Poros (it will appear right above you straight ahead "crowning" the village) before you start heading down to the beach. Park the car outside the church, go through the gate (it's never been locked) and walk towards the back of it (where the belfry is located). Here you'll be stunned by the most beautiful panoramic view of Mikros Gialos/Poros beach (see pics).

Now about the beach: Getting there is pretty simple. Just follow the main Lefkada-Nidri road on the East Coast, past Nidri, continue past Vlicho Bay, then Follow signs to Vassiliki (cutting to the right at the end of Vlicho and heading uphill)... Continue on the main road straight ahead (all the while enjoying the BREATHTAKING panoramic of the valleys bellow) until you see signs for Poros or "Mikros Gialos" beach on the left. This will be right off the main (well paved road) and is hard to miss. If you get to "Sivota", you've gone too far.... But this shouldn't be a problem as most maps show Poros village very clearly.

The beach is ALWAYS calm as it rests off a long bay, and is often studded w/sail boats and/or yachts. We love going there esp. when it's a windy day, and the more popular beaches on the West Coast (Kathisma,Pefkoulia etc..) are wavy and windy. Beach Shoes are a must, however, as the pebbles here are plentiful :-).

I should also mention good snorkeling can found on the far right (as you face the water). You can follow the mountain there around the corner onto a lovely little beach (passing some small caves along the way on the right) for a rest before heading back for a bite at the taverns across the street!! Chairs/Umbrellas are available for lease as well (I believe we paid 6 or 8 Euros for the day for 2 chairs and umbrella) to complete the relaxation on this very nice beach.... See also "Amousa Beach" reviews for a smaller version of the same type of beach (but much less people and better snorkeling :)

Hope this helps!!
