getting to Lefkas the fastest way

by urikenny

We want to get to Lefkas from either Athens or Zakynthos : how can we do it other than by car ? is there a ferry to Lefkas from Zakynthos ? thanx 4 your help

Re: getting to Lefkas the fastest way



Lefkas or Lefkada (as we call it in Greek)is the only Greek island that you can go there by car or bus!The secret: there is a small bridge connecting the island to the mainland!
How to get there:
From Athens:
Take the national highway to Patras and before to arrive to Patras turn on the right to Rio (not in Brasil! even in Greece we have a Rio!), cross the famous "suspension bridge", which was inaugurated during the Olympics and then follow the local road to Amfilohia, Vonitsa and then you cross the tiny bridge to Lefkada.

From Zakynthos:
Take the ferry to Kyllini on the mainland (duration of the voyage: 1 hour)and then the road to Patras.The rest, you know it!

Lefkada is wellknown fot its wonderful beaches! Try: Porto Katsiki, Kathisma and Egremni and you will be fascinated!

Bon voyage-Kalo taxidi!

If you travel by public transport (bus), it is better to go to Lefkada from Athens, since there is a direct bus. If you arrive in Zakynthos, you have to change different buses and nobody can guarantee about correspondence timing. There is no direct ferry from Zakynthos to Lefkada. Although, if you like adventures, you can pass from north of Zakynthos to Kefallonia island by boat, then drive to the north of Kefallonia island and take another boat to Lefkada.

Travel Tips for Lefkas

Lefkas, narrow side streets


In the center of Lefkas, a few narrow side streets are escaping from the main street. They are lined with colorful fishermen houses.

There are no really ancient buildings as the city is often hit by earthquakes that destroyed most of the buildings. It was hit in 1948, 1953, 1971 and more lightly in 2003.

Most houses are partly made of wood and corrugated iron, even if it does not show : usually, the basement is built with stones and the upper level is made of painted wood and corrugated iron

Still real Greece, but not for long

"Porto Katsiki"

This is one of the 7 most beautiful beaches in the world according to travel channel. Sometimes waves can be as 3 m high and it is quite dangerous to swim. You can eat and drink in tavernas -3 of them with view like this. Mythos beer 0.5l costs 3 eur and food is like 4-6 eur. You have to walk down the 150 steps to reach the beach and there are some umbrellas for 3 eur. You can walk also on the shadow side of the beach, but you have to go through water, so your feet will be wet. On the right side there is beautiful spot for snorkeling. Water here is much colderr than on the east side of the island and there are strong underwater currents if you are a diver-snorkeling enthusiast.

"NIDRI Beach"

Myself enjoying in the front of the Eva Beach hotel. They have a small private Beach with umbrellas for free. Very good for children of my age.

"Main pedestrian street in LEFKADA - capital"

Main street in Lefkada is a must visit spot on the island. It is just a walking area with exclusive small shops of hand made stuff. There are very good traditional fast foods with Gyro pita to take away and chicken suvlaki for 1,5 euro which was one of the best I traid in last 15 years.
