    Lefkas, Cape Doukato, east view
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: The first photo shows the view towards the east. If you enlarge, you will sea in the background, on the left the island of Meganisi and on the right the North of the island of Ithaki, known as the home of Ulysses.

    The second photo was shot in almost the same direction but with wide angle lens. The south of Lefkas shows in the left, Meganisis in the center and Ithaki on the right.

    The third photo shows only the northern head of Ithaki..

    Lefkas, Cape Doukato, north-west view
    1 more image

    Favorite thing: Around the lighthouse, a flat space has been arranged and limited by white walls which makes a very pleasant viewing plarform.

    The two photos on this tip show the west coast of the island, towards the North. The southern part of the coast is made of cliffs with a few narrow beaches (Egremni Beach and Porto Katsiki).

    The legend says that the great poetess of ancient Greece, Sapho, committed suicide in this lace by jumping from the top of the cliff.

    Lefkas, Cape Doukato, light house

    Lefkas, Cape Doukato, light house

    Favorite thing: At last, we arrive close to the lighthouse. In 2002, there was a small parking that could hold a dozen cars. Two campers seemed ready to spend the night here. This is really a great place for a night! From the parking, you have to walk for a hundred meters on a stony path.
    Cape Doukato is also named cape Lefkata or Kavos tis Kiras

    Lefkas, Cape Doukato, west, southwards view

    Lefkas, Cape Doukato

    Favorite thing: A narrow ?window? in the rock allows to have a great view on the cliffs, with the sea breaking on the rocks. Though the weather is fine, there is a strong wind blowing in your face and you must pay attention not to fall down. The lighthouse is still several kilometers away (enlarge the photo)

    Lefkas, Cape Doukato, east, southwards  view

    Favorite thing: The peninsula becomes narrower and narrower. The road remains now on the eastern side as the western side is a cliff. A little further, it is possible to park on the side of the road and have a peak into the cliffs and the lighthouse.

    After a while, when getting closer to the cape, the road passes again on the western side and at last offers a view on our goal, the cape with its lighthouse. You need to enlarge the picture to view the lighthouse in the background.

    Lefkas, road to Cape Doukato

    by JLBG Written Mar 14, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lefkas, road to Cape Doukato

    Favorite thing: When driving from Lefkas, after Khort?ta, you can choose between the direction to Vasiliki, on the left or to Kamilo, Athani, Egremni Beach, Porto Katsiki beach and the cape. The first time I drove to the cape, the 25km or so were entirely a dirt road. Each time I came back, the tarred road went a little further. Last time (2002), there remained only 2-3 kilometers of dirt road.

    Vasiliki, the port

    Favorite thing: The port of Vasiliki has only small fishing boats and the catch is either for own use of the fishermen, or for one of the restaurants. There is no commercial fishing and most of the time, the catch is poor.
