Best beach in Lefkada. Not that busy, there is some shade behind the rocks. the views are stunnibg, water is clearer than at busier beaches (like Kathisma). The only downside is the road, but it is manageable. Walk to the beach is fairly quick (especially when compared to Egremni).

Wild beach with beautiful water, very big waves, big stones and stunning sunsets. You can park above the beach and walk on the path medium as difficulty until the beach or you can park close to Kavalikefta beach, where there is a private parking (3 euro) or you just park on the street and walk between the stones (take care cause its not an easy way to get to the beach). Beach is not crowded also because its wild and not explored. There are some sun beds and umbrellas but few. We have had ours. No taverna or beach bar, just a man selling some drinks. Take with you food and water and prepare to spend entire day there cause its WONDERFUL! The sunsets are breathtaking. Higely recommended.

It is a beautiful beach with large rocks sprinkled all over the land and in the water. It is an untouched beach, but very popular. To reach the beach, follow a narrow and hard road from the village of Kalamitsi, 5 km long, but you can take it in 15 minutes by car. At the end of the road there are 2 car parks, which cost only 5 euro / day, but if you park along the road you will make the traffic even harder. To get to the beach from the parking, you have 2 possibilities: by the neighboring beach of Kavalikefta on a 150-meter waterway, or on a steep 250m long road. Whatever option you choose, it's worth it, the beach is gorgeous.

The beach is somewhat similar to Mylos and Kathisma, medium sized, with both sand and rocks and the mesmerizing blue water typical to this part of the island. Being less popular than its neighbouring beaches, it felt a bit wild and secluded.

Nevertheless, the presence of man is felt on the 5 min hike leading to it which was not very clean. Not the case for the beach though; only a few umbrellas to rent and a guy with some cold drinks and coffee. It is very accesible by car and offers a good amount of parking space.

I don't know if this beach is accessible by car. We came to this beach walking 5 min from Kavalikhefta beach, where we parked. The road till there is very narrow and the private parking is small.

Thia beach is very beutiful. There are no sun beds or umbrella to ruin the landscape and also there's no bar or restaurant here. Only a cafeteria on Kavalikhefta beach.

The water is cristal clear with shades of blue, the views are so beautiful. You may find naked people here.

Pictures attached are from Megali Petra beach.

This is one of the rare wild beaches, there are no sun bads, bars. There is sun bads and bar on a Kavalikefta beach, which is next to it. I really like this beach, so peaceful. I recommend it to everyone!

Amazing beach, great sea! Difficult access, but worthwhile to enjoy the unspoiled nature. Not so busy as other beached on western coast.
