Hard to get to, but worth it. Surprisingly, a lot of other people had found it, but still not overcrowded.

Porto Katsiki is an amazing beach! A place you don't want to miss. The water is so blue, it seems unreal. You can approach this beach by car, parking costs 3 euros. It's better to go there in the early morning before the cruise ships arrive with a lot of people. Don't forget to bring comfortable shoes for walking on the pebbles in the beach.

Porto Katsiki is situated towards the south of Lefkada and is easily reached by car or cruise boat (best to avoid the latter simply because you won't be given enough time to spend there). It is absolutely stunning, especially when the waters are calm. Apart from the usual swimming and sunbathing, it is also worth paying a visit to the rocky peninsula located on the west side of the beach. If you go by car, it is best to visit in the afternoon (4pm or later) when the beach is less crowded, so you can park closer to the beach - otherwise prepare for a long walk!

As personal note, even though Porto Katsiki is very beautiful, out of all the beaches in Lefkada I would personally rate Egremni higher than Porto Katsiki

when I first saw the beach from the top of the stairs - I said wow, like probably everybody else. it really is a beautiful place. the water is so blue, that you hardly believe. the thing is that the approach is litlle difficult, especially with a small child. but it was worth it. on our second visit we had a bad luck, becouse the waves were really big, so it was almost impossible to go to the water and also to return without being completely wet.
