Porto Katsiki, Lefkada

4.2
Backed by an enormous cliff, Porto Katsiki sits on a sheltered beach near Athani village. The name means goat port; legend says that only goats could reach the beach at one point. Now you can park on the cliff above the beach and take the stairwell down to sea level. Grab a drink or a bite to eat in one of the bars and canteens at the top of the stairs before you depart.

Where to stay in Lefkada

To escape the big crowds and soak up some island atmosphere, stay in one of the small villages on the eastern side of Lefkada, where you can choose from hillside villas providing modern amenities and sweeping sea views. For a more urban experience, explore the mid-range hotels of the island's eponymous capital, which offer air-conditioned rooms, free Wi-Fi, and easy foot access to shops, bars, and restaurants. Active vacationers can also try the small resort town of Vasiliki, a windsurfing center known for its affordable inns.
