Nidri

— 4 nights
A major yachting destination in the Ionian Sea, Nidri serves as the gateway to Lefkada's satellite islets, reachable by regular boat tours.
Explore Nidri's surroundings by going to Agios Giannis Beach (in Lefkada Town), Gialos Beach (in Apollonii) and Agios Nikitas (Kathisma Beach & Milos Beach). And it doesn't end there: take in the dramatic scenery at Nydri Waterfalls, enjoy the sea views from Lighthouse Doukato, do a tasting at Lefkas Earth Winery, and pause for some serene contemplation at Faneromeni Monastery.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Nidri using our trip planner.

Thessaloniki to Nidri is an approximately 5-hour car ride. You can also drive; or take a bus; or do a combination of train, bus, and taxi. Expect a daytime high around 38°C in August, and nighttime lows around 25°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) early enough to go by car back home.

Lefkada travel guide

Beaches · Waterfalls · Stand-Up Paddleboarding
Connected to mainland Greece by a long causeway and floating bridge, Lefkada represents more than just an island paradise of modern seaside resorts and pristine Ionian beaches. Though it measures only 35 km (22 mi) from north to south, the island offers a mosaic of landscapes that include excellent mountain biking spots. Evade the big crowds of the southern coastline's popular beaches and soak up some local culture by visiting the small villages along Lefkada's eastern side, where you can explore traditional taverns known for serving local dishes to the tune of traditional live music.
