There is more to Lefkada than just stunning beaches.
WINDSURFING & KITE SURFING
Lefkada is actually one of THE destinations for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Lots of people travel here for a spot of kite surfing at Ai Ioannis beach, near the town of Lefkada. Vassiliki is also a bit of a windsurfing mecca, with one of the best natural harbours for windsurfing the Mediterranean has to offer.
For a holiday activity you will not forget, you can try paragliding. In Lefkada paragliding companies fly mainly from two locations. Kalamitsi Village and Kathisma beach.
The calmer waters and the gulf between Lefkada's east coast and the mainland makes for very smooth sailing indeed! You can hire anything from a small powerboat to a yacht to explore Lefkada and its archipelago. There are several boat hire places mainly in Nidri.
BIKE TOURS / BIKE HIRE
Mountain biking tours for families or more experienced cyclists are also on offer, or alternative you can hire your own bike and get it delivered for free to our villa.
