And why, of all the mystically blue Greek islands, visit Lefkada, you might ask? The answer usually lies in the sun-toasted sand, the turquoise water, and the lush, green cliffs. There are endless beaches, where you can dive in the crystal-clear water, run down the coastline, and create unforgettable memories.
But this year, due to the circumstances, we have to emphasize a favorable advantage of Lefkada; its accessibility by car! Hop in your car, and take a once-in-a-lifetime road trip, starting from the Balkans, driving through the picturesque routes of Greece, till you reach Akarnania! There you'll get to cross a 50-meter bridge that links the mainland to the island (Lefkada is actually the only Greek island “endowed” with this privilege). So, you don't need to worry about getting jammed in public transportation, and as a consequence, you won't get exposed to any health risks.
The temptation doesn't stop there; get lost discovering the natural treasure of Melissa Gorge- an adventurous hike among dense vegetation, traditional watermills, and a small but impressive waterfall. Now, if you are in for a site, even more impressive, you should pay a visit to the towering Nydri Waterfalls. Walk down the olive groves, hop on the rocks, and enjoy a refreshing swim- the best thing that could happen to you, on a scorching hot day.
Enjoy the hot sun and the burbling sound of water - but hurry up, because the adventure never ends. The Venetian Castle of Agia Mavra is awaiting for you to find out about its long history, wander around the ruins and take in the mesmerizing view. But since we're talking about the Lefkadian view, don't leave the island unless you've visited the Cape Lefkatas and its majestic Lighthouse. Let yourself sink in the romantic landscape, walk- carefully- near the edge of the cliff, and let your body feel every inch of freedom.
Hiking is a very appealing option, but so is paragliding, cycling, and diving. And that's just a small peek of the wide range of the outdoor activities Lefkada has to offer. So, brace yourself, at a safe distance from others, and have the time of your life.
Tempting as all these may sound, you might still have some doubts; Would it be safe to travel to Lefkada, considering the novel virus?
