it is one of my favorite Lefkada's beach because it is very long, no crowdy, sandy, very clear blue/green water and an amazing sunset in the evening!

Don't bother as the road to the beach is being repaired and not accessible. Check with local before u make the effort to go all the way.

On a sunny day we spent most of our morning at Gialos beach, the sand is white and soft, we chose to stay in a section where most of the locals are settled and had a wonderful morning
