Lefkas Travel Guide
Archaeological Museum About a kilometre out of town towards Ag. Nikitas in a new building you will find this extensive collection mostly from Leukas a 7th century city nearby.The museum is well organised and has comprehensive explanations in English.
Phonograph Museum In the capital of Lefkada you will find this very inereting place to while away a hour out of the sun. Old phonographs and many other trinkets can be seen here.
Lighthouse at Vasiliki Intreging history of the lighthouse built on the sight of the Temple of Lefkas Apollo on the southern tip of the island.Thought to be the place where the ancient poet Sappho threw herself to her death after being rejected by her female lover.
To Katoghi in Vafkeri End of March 2009 Peter and Alison opened their Restaurant/Cafe-Bar in Vafkeri. A pleasant surprise! The food is delicious, both international and Greek cuisine. The prices are very reasonable. From the terrace you have a wonderful view. Though Vafkeri sounds far away, it takes only twelve minutes by car from Nidri. Absolutely worthwile the trip! Open all year, except Monday.

Yefsi and Symposium I've just been to Nidri for two weeks and two restaurants stand out. Yefsi and Symposium. There was four of us and not one of us complained, all our dishes were beautiful. The prices are reasonable and the people cannot do enough for you.

Nidri Yacht Club Fab little place on Nidri Main Road next to the mini golf. It offers a superb range of food, especially welcome when you want a break from Greek cuisine or are trying to feed teenage kids. Thanks to Anna and staff the whole family enjoyed themselves and were made very welcome.

Ivari Restaurant Nidri Lefkas Forget the hard sell of the harbour front. Carry on walking to Ivari the best food in Nidri. The most extensive menu and good company. Spent a week in Nidri before Flotilla holiday, so sampled most of the tavernas. Can definitely recommend Ivari. Hope to be back sometime.

Eris Place, Lefkas From start to finish we had a terrible holiday with missing suitcases etc, but still we loved Lefkas and particularly Eris Place in Nidri. Small, intimate, staff friendly and food fabulous. Will go back to Lefkas just to eat there again!

Kavos Beach Beautiful views abound at this beach in Nidri, shallow and safe swimming, Colourful fish make this a good place to snorkel, or sun bathe on one of the hundreds of loungers.
Milos Beach You will find this spectacular beach just south of the village of Agios Nikitas. High cliffs surround this pebbly beach; just lay on your back in the crystal clear waters and gaze at the scenery. No shops here and a bit of a hike or take a boat.
Porto Katsiki At the south end of the island on the west coast, this stunning stretch of sand is accusable via a set of steps at the peak of a semi circular cliff. Food and drinks are available at the top.
