the emerald island of the Ionian
Lefkada belongs to the Ionian Islands and is one of the most enchanting destinations in western Greece. It has not been characterized by chance as the emerald island of the Ionian since any part of it and if you visit you will see the green of the mountain to meet the deep blue of the sea forming magical landscapes unique throughout the Mediterranean.
Access is very easy since, due to the underwater crossing, it is essentially the only island with road access from mainland Greece. If you are not a fan of the convenience of air travel within 20 minutes there is the airport of Aktio, which is connected with both the airport of Athens and with airports abroad.
In Lefkada you can easily combine both tranquility and fun on your vacation. The city has picturesque alleys that are full of life, especially during the summer months, but there are also the surrounding villages that are an ideal place for exploring and walking in nature and of course its beaches, of special natural beauty with the clear turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea. For lovers of good and quality food, the rich local cuisine with traditional flavors and fresh fish, which is abundant on the island, will cover your every taste pleasure, while alternatively you can enjoy your ouzo by the sea with traditional delicacies and local products-like Lefkada salami- and give another note to your vacation.
So, for those who choose the Ionian Sea as a destination for their holidays, Lefkada is an ideal solution for both family vacations and holidays with friends.
