Following the signs to Vassiliki on the main North/South Road (well paved/well marked), past the better known beach of "Mikros Gialos" and past Sivota bay but before reaching Vassiliki you will find the "best kept secret" snorkeling spots on the island.... Follow signs to Marandochori then Evgiros villages, then don't be afraid to head down to the Ocean for this little jewel of a beach you will not soon forget...

Pebbly "crescent shaped" beach on the non-wavy South Coast of the Island, recently paved, it provides an "unspoiled" scenic approach. Chairs/umbrellas are available for lease, easy parking and with a cafe (juices, ice cream, coffee etc..) and an EXCELLENT taverna (we had the spaghetti carbonara, grilled sardines, Gr. salad, and stuffed tomatoes/peppers) serving HOMEMADE dishes prepared daily and on the spot, what else can one ask for on a Greek Holiday?!.... How about EXCELLENT snorkeling!! Pick the right or the left, of the infinitely clear water, for a feast of underwater sights!! Rock formations, some corral (unusual for Greek Waters), sea grass, small caves and of course fish!! Never wavy nor with currents, this beach is perfectly safe for all levels of swimmers and small kids (see pics).... Loved this place, and if your looking for a scenic unspoilt spot for snorkeling, laying out and chilling in Lefkada, look no further (esp. on windy days as this beach is well protected and never wavy)!!

Oh, Pebbly beach (does require beach shoes)....

Hope this helps! KS

The most nicer beach in Lefkada.Not very large, surrounded by hills, but the colours are fantastic. The beach is truly white( round rocks), the first stripe of water is green, then a true blue, all around by green trees. There are 2 tavernas there.Almost 4-5 KM from the main road.

Well, this small beach is not at the same level as the beaches of the west coast of the island, but if you pass from the area it's worth a visit. The scenery is different, the sea colours are darker as well. But it is a pleasant change from the endless azur. You can park your car just a few metres from the beach and drink a coffee at the nice nearby cafe(and tavern?).

Access to this beach by car, very easy to park unlike most beaches in Lefkada. Quiet, serene, picturesque, what more could you need?
There's a really nice tavern just behind the beach.
