5 family-friendly experiences on the island of Lefkada

Take a walk in nature

Wonder around in the cobbled streets of the town, in the small paved alleys, see the beautiful quaint houses and make a stop to enjoy a refreshing cold drink or a dessert in the square where the kids can play safely.

Oasis for the kids

Lefkada has many public playgrounds for the entertainment of its young visitors. The most popular ones are located in the beach of Lefkada, in the marina and the Lakis Sandas square.


The east side beaches (Lygia, Nikiana, Nydri and Vassiliki) are ideal for family swimming because their waters are calm, without waves and children of all ages can have hours of carefree fun both inside and outside of the sea. We also recommend you to visit the golden beach of Agios Nikitas which is very well protected from the wind. You can also swim without any worries in the turquoise waters of the beaches next to the town of Lekada (Kastro, Gyra and Ai Giannis) which are not too deep and normally don't get very crowded, especially during the morning hours.

The beaches of the west side are without a doubt in the spotlight during the summer season (Kathisma, Porto Katsiki, Egremnoi, etc.). However, you should be extra careful because the waters there are deep and should be avoided when there are lots of waves. Many beaches in Lefkada have umbrellas, sunbeds and canteens which offer snacks and juices.
