Lefkada is a wonderful destination with legendary beaches surrounded by almost impossibly azure waters. Lately, with the addition of some accessibility features, Lefkada has assured that everybody can experience the joys of a day spent near the Ionian sea. The island has two SEATRAC* places, Limni in Lygia and Mikros Gialos in Poros, that allow beach access to locals and travellers alike with mobility issues or wheelchairs.
Lygia (or Ligia) is a dream swimming spot just 5 kilometers away from Lefkada city. The beach is one of the most tranquil places on the island featuring shimmering pebbles and bright emerald waters that can make you think you’re in a tropical heaven. Moreover, the trees drop right down to the beach, offering generous natural shade that gently spreads through the noon.

This year, a SEATRAC has been installed in Mikros Gialos beach, allowing wheelchair users and travellers with reduced mobility to soak up the sun and enjoy the inviting blue waters.
