Holidays to Lefkas offer a truly unique experience, with untouched beaches and towns that look the same as they did 100 years ago. It's a hidden gem off the coast of the Preveza region, on the west coast of the Greek mainland that you won't find in the Sunday travel supplements.
The main resorts line up along Lefkas' east coast, with Nidri being the biggest. It's a former fishing village that has grown and developed, but still retains its traditional charm with sailboats and fishing boats at anchorages off the sandy shore, and a mixture of fish tavernas, cafes, restaurants and bars. Further north, Nikiana is a smaller version of Nidri.
The west coast of Lefkas is still relatively untouched by tourism. Agios Ioannis on the island's northwest tip is the most built up, with more olive trees than buildings. It's a great spot for walking, with waterfalls, pine forests and 1,000-metre mountain peaks to explore. You can also take a boat from the quay in Nidri or Vassiliki to the 10 satellite islands around Lefkas.
