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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Faneromeni Monastery and Ammoussa Beach. Get outdoors at Kavalikefta Beach and Megali Petra Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Avali Beach (in Kalamitsi) and Agios Giannis Beach (in Lefkada Town). The adventure continues: glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, kick back and relax at Kalamitsi Beach, get outside with Crociere A Vela, and enjoy the sea views from Lighthouse Doukato.

For other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Nidri vacation maker site.

Athens to Nidri is an approximately 4.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of flight, bus, and ferry. Traveling from Athens in August, plan for slightly colder nights in Nidri, with lows around 25°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) so you can go by car back home.

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.
