Travel from Preveza to Lefkas

by Linda_CC

I am about to book a package holiday with First Choice to Lefkas and we fly in to Preveza. Can anyone tell me how we will get to Lefkas from there? Is by ferry or hydrofoil? Does anyone know how long the journey takes?

Thanks for any help you can give, Linda.

There is a road bridge from the mainland to Lefkas, so no ferry. Time could be almost anything depending on whether they wait for other flights, number of stops, number of resorts etc.

It cost 4 of us around 50 euro to get a taxi from Preveza airport to Lefkas (the docks). Like someone mentioned, there's a bridge onto the island (it's actually a barge - it moves around to let boats and cars across/through. Very cool!)

It used to be a small chain ferry, it was when I last passed there, but it is now a floating bridge, parts can be raised for passing boats.
Take a look at Google Earth you can see the 2 old chain barges just north of the floating bridge.

Just for your information: You don't fly at Preveza,there is no airport there! For some strange reason,the airport is called Preveza airport, but it's situated next to Aktion town. So,in case you were looking on a map to get an idea of the traveling time,be aware that distance between the airport and Lefkas is shorter than the distance between Preveza and Lefkas. Aktion is a bit Southern of Preveza and nearer Lefkas.Normally it's about 30-45 minutes driving from the airport to Lefkas town. I don't think your resort will be situated near the town of Lefkas though.So add to that time,the distance from Lefkas town to the resort!!!
PS:Lefkas or Lefkada is the name of the isle, but it is the name of its capital too!!!
Sorry if these sound a bit confusing. Mainly are not!!!!

If that's a package holiday,they should have transportation arranged,shouldn't they?

Hi

We went to Lefkas last year and stayed in Nidri. We did a package deal so the transfer took us about 45 mins after dropping other people off at their hotels. Depends where you are staying obviously but would be quicker if you have your own transport. From the airport and crossing the bridge which divides Lefkas from Mainland Greece I would say is about 15 mins so not far. If you look at my page on Lefkas I have a picture on their showing the bridge that you cross. Enjoy your holiday

Travel Tips for Lefkas

Lefkas, woman in traditional wear

by JLBG

The traditional “regular” wear, worn everyday, is now exceptional. Only a few elderly women coming from mountain villages still wear it. It is a plain black dress with occasionally a black scarf. The traditional “feast” wear is more colored and worn now on the occasion of folk shows.

"Getting there."

Flew in with Thomas Cook on a chartered flight which left Gatwick spot on time and three hours later landed at Preveza on the Greece mainland. A tiny airport with a lagoon at one end of the runway and sea at the other. Fantastic watching the approach with the sharp banking. Made better by the fact that I had a window seat and had a great view of the island of Lefkas. Overall a good flight and we would travel with Thomas Cook again.Well, you could most probably describe Preveza airport as an out back airport. It seemed that about three planes had landed within a few minutes of each other and all had to pass through passport control at the same time. This consisted of a hall about 20 metres long with three booths at the end for which to pass through. As must be expected with Greece only one booth was open on this afternoon so we spent the next twenty minutes waiting in line in the backing sun. I suppose it started the sun tan off and to be truthful the time passed quickly as there was such at good atmosphere upon arrival.

Once through passport control we were ushered into the baggage hall. Once again un-organized chaos greeted us. Nothing to do but grin and bear it. We did get our luggage within about 45 minutes. I must say that the airport was well air conditioned but from what we had seen of it, it really was lacking in about everything. Now we had our luggage it was time to find our Thomas cook rep to find out where our villa was and get the hire car.

Andrea, our rep was a lovely German lady who just loved to talk. She greeted us warmly and gave us our welcoming pack and explained where the villa was. Umm, just follow the instructions as described in the pack she said. Okay, no problem we thought, in for a penny and all that. We got our hire car no problem and to the villas we go, I say villas as my sister and her husband with daughter are staying in the villa next to us. The instruction about getting there are vague but we get there in the end.

The villas were accessed via there own electric gates and are we happy. The brochure picture (artists impression) and description have not justified what these villas are like. We are gobsmacked. Its going to be a good week.

More to follow shortly!
