    Very nice beach in Lefkada, with turquoise-blue water and white pebbles. One needs to go down on several steps to get to the beach. Very crowded.

    Very nice beach in Lefkada, with fantastic blue water. The beach is very long and sandy. In order to get to the beach one needs to hike 1 km from the parking lot, than to descend 400 stairs. This trip has to be taken back, hiking up the mountain (210 m difference of altitude), but it is totally worth it. Usually crowded, especially near the stairs, but if you walk along the beach there are more secluded places.

    Milos Beach is a beautiful beach that is reachable by foot (20min) and by boat for a couple of euro per person. You difficult can find parking close there

    Nice beach in Lefkada, with fantastic blue water and white pebbles. Easy access to the beach. Very crowded, in spite of its length. It is an organised beach, with plenty of tavernas and sunbeds.

    This bay is a small one but organized with umbrellas and wood paths between. Behind that a bar &restaurant. First having a drink in a cool place under tree leaves, so fresh there . then you can walk by foot aside bay to other two small bays which makes attractive the zone.

    We were there off season, so the car park was most;y fenced off and all the sunbeds and umbrellas had gone. The road is very winding and a bit rough in places, but easy enough if you take your time.
    There was quite a heavy swell so we did not spend much time in the water, and the waves breaking on the stony beach were a little tricky. OK once you were in though. Spectacular location, and probably lovely if the wind is not coming from the south.

    Lovely setting with views across the bay watching the sail boats come and go.

    At the time of writing it’s really quiet but with signs of other activity as businesses set up for the season.

    Sadly, there are also some negatives to report since we were last here. Building work is going on in several places … just down from the Rouda Village apartments, a large area of land has also been cleared between the port and the bay areas suggesting future development; but worst of all what appears to be a quarry has been established (not being worked at present though) right next to the Illyanthos Apartments! Madness! The huge pile of quarried rock has also covered what was a car park, which will seriously restrict parking provision in the height of the season.

    Fortunately, the Zollithros restaurant continues to offer great food in an excellent location and now even has a small ‘roof garden’.

    It was easy to get to, parking was close enough. We got a good spot next to the rocks in the shade, we did look at the sun lounges but they were 50 euros for the two, we didn’t no that as we were there only for an hour and half as we moved on to the next site seeing adventure

    If you seek adventure when travelling then this is the place to go to.
    The street leading to this beautiful beach is kinda wow. Hope your car has got good brakes!
    Once you are there plenty of free parking spots are waiting for you and two or even more bars/eateries.
    There you can also purchase sunbeds under an umbrella. Costs? 15 EUR for two sunbeds. You can also apy by card.
    Now the downside: the beach is as many beaches quite stoney. There are a lot of pebbles BUT there are also in the water and they quite big and slippery too. Even people who wore those beach shoes had trouble to get in and out. Don't ask us as we didn't even have these shoes. We rather looked like stranded whales I am afraid. Anyway, the beach is beautiful and not crowded.

    absolutely beautiful beach , which we went to 3 days running. The road down is winding and down a hillside with several hairpins but its sealed all the way and isn't a too difficult drive up or down - just take it slowly. Parking near the beach at the Bar is limited but you should be able to tuck in somewhere nearby. The beach is beautiful, and the setting magnificent, the water is a beautiful set of blues and swimming easy. There are around 20 sets of parasols and beds for hire - 10 euros per parasol + 2 beds. The beach bar is lovely with stunning views, and a laid back vibe, great food and interesting dishes for a beach bar, but plays music too loud which slightly ruins the ambience. Overall the beach is a gem, and only spoilt by occasional cretins with drones or a stereo (but some people are just selfish and have few manners, or awareness of others, or themselves).

    I came to this beach because from here you can take a taxi boat to Mylos beach, but unfortunately on that day because of the rough sea, there were races to Mylos beach.

    The beach is small, there are no sunbeds

    Access to the beach is on foot from the main road and is full of shops and taverns.

    Parking only on the main road.

    Who knows which is the best beach on Lafkada, so here are some facts to help you.

    The road down is not for larger cars and certainly not for camper vans. Parking is on either the narrow road (and causes issues) or is 5 Euros in one of the 2 car parks.

    There is food and drinks available, certainly in early September.

    Lots of loungers and umbrellas to hire at 10 Euros a pair of 2 loungers and an umbrella.

    Due to the rocks, the water is milky blue, lovely to swim in with good wave action due to the undertaker rocks, not good for snorkelling.

    Arrive early to get parked. Beware of the narrow roads down to the beach. Beautiful beach, mostly samd. Waves rough enough for children to enjoy

    In my opinion it is a better beach than Vasiliki Beach because there are better facilities for relaxing at the beach, it is not just for water sports. There are parts of the beach with sunbeds and umbrellas - the cost is 7 euro. You need special shoes because the entrance to the water is with rocks.
