Yacht charter from marina Lefkas

Porto Katsiki is one of the top beaches in Lefkada. Very clear and beautiful turquoise water. The road is a little bit difficult. Do not miss also Megali Petra beach.

Lefkada town today is the third capital of the island since the days of antiquity, when it was ancient Nirikos, situated in the Kouloumos area and then medieval Santa Maura (Aghia Mavra today) enclosed within the walls of the homonymous fortress (first decade of the 14th c). In 1684, on the initiative of the Venetian Francesco Morosini, the island capital was transferred to its present location, until then a small settlement of workers in Lefkada’s fishery and salt pans. The choice of location was for defence purposes, surrounded as it was by sea, providing the town with a protective shield.
