The Greek Island of Lefkada Ionian Sea (drivable by car) Page 4

Lefkada page 4

Hints from Harry

The island is more inviting further down its east coast where there are deeper waters, long sandy beaches and where most tourist facilities are. The west coast on the other hand, is almost un-exploited and also has wonderful beaches.

This is an excellent island to explore with a scooter. See more photos of Lefkada I | Photos Lefkada II | III
