Hidden behind large rocks, you find a gorgeous small pebbled beach, Megali Petra. The water is quite rocky at all times and offers good swimming and rock jumping. For the emerald blue waters, you pay premium prices for beach chairs (€6) and parking (€3). The latter you get for free, if you are willing to save this bit and walk... More

great nudist beach, the only downside is a chap walking up and down the beach, harassing to sell coffee and donuts etc

The drive down to the beach is very steep, narrow, with lots of hairpin turns. Takes 15 minutes. Smaller size beach with lots of rocks in the sea views. Water beautiful, but too stirred up with silt for snorkel viewing. Chairs & umbrellas available We loved it

It is difficult to reach this beach. The road is too narrow for two way road, so you have to be careful especially in curves (and there are a lot of curves). There is a parking that you pay 2 or 3 euros for whole day, but it is better to come earlier, because parking is small. Also, you can... More

The best beach on the entire west coast! Easily reachable by car, it's very small and the privacy is provided by the spaces between the big rocks. No need to say the turquoise clear water seems unreal, it's like swimming in a pool! The sea got agitated at some point and we had a bonus show offered by the waves.... More

I liked the rocky sealine. Difficult road to access, many km downhill but totally worth it! Small beach though, and expensive umbrella & chair set cost!! (6 euros!)

Sandy beach, with some big rocks in the sea. And still very good for swimming. You may face some problems with parking in this beach. Also road to this beach is very narrow. So we recommend to go in the morning to this beach. It is really one of the best.

This was a somehow hidden beach on the west side of Lefkada. I liked it a lot, though putting our towels on the sand proved a little tricker than we had thought - there was limited space, as the beach is quite rocky! We saw a lovely sunset though :)

Please honk before the corners if you come down here by car! The road is bad for Lefkas standards, so figure..... Anyway, the beach is awesome, there are big rocks you can climb or swim around, and the place has much brighter colours than your average 5 stars swimming pool. A boat really helps here because there are three or... More

The beach itself is wonderful, very secluded and wild but it is also very hard to reach on a narrow road and almost 0 parking spaces, be prepared to leave your car on the side of the narrow steep road.
