Beaches

Seaside Greece Resort is located right on Vassiliki Beach. It belongs to the eponymous resort in the bay in the south of the island of Lefkada. The surface of the beach is dotted with small pebbles, but there are also sandy areas. The central beach is 2 km long with a gradual entry into the sea. It is especially popular among water sports enthusiasts.

Another beautiful beach at the resort is Agiofili Beach, which lies in a small bay. You can travel here by boat from the center or on foot and you will have amazing views of the entire bay with crystal clear water

If you want to get to know the whole island and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, we recommend the beaches:

Porto Katsiki beach is regularly ranked in the list of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is about 300 meters long, bordered by white cliffs and a rock. The sea is perfectly clean with a beautiful azure color. The beach is covered with white pebbles, the entrance to the sea is gradual and suitable for children. It is accessible by car or boat.

Egremni Beach is a pristine beach over 2 kilometers long. It consists of both sand and pebbles. Its width is defined on one side by the sea and on the other by steep cliffs. Currently, the beach is accessible only from the boat. In 2015, an earthquake hit the island, which damaged the access road for cars and pedestrians (probably Zeus wanted to reserve this beach just for himself).

Kathisma beach, golden warm sand, great facilities, but especially crystal clear and clear water. The whole beach is 1.5 km long and reaches a width of 80 m, so even during the high season you do not have to worry that there will be head to head. In strong winds, high waves form at sea. The back is reserved for nudists, but it is not an official nudist beach (We did not find out what Zeus says).

Megali Petra Beach is located near the town of Kalamitsi on the south coast of the island. The name of the beach means "big stone", which is blessed on the beach and in the sea. In windy weather, large waves can form here and frolicking in the sea can become dangerous.

Restaurants

Greeks like to enjoy life. One of the manifestations is to eat and drink well. A traditional Greek dinner is literally a social event. Greek cuisine is one of the best, but also the healthiest cuisines in the world. A little miracle - what is good can be healthy.

If you go from our resort on the pedestrian promenade on the left, you will come after 800 m to the center of Vasiliki. There is a variety of bars and nightclubs. Seafood, fish, lamb and chicken are served in a number of traditional taverns and restaurants. When you decide for traditional Greek cuisine, we can recommend the restaurant Vagelaras, if for European, we recommend Pizza Alex, of course with the offer of Greek cuisine. For lovers of burgers and fries, there is the Fat boys burger bistro, where they will serve you even in the late hours of the night. If you want to sit with friends and have a refreshing mixed drink, visit Vass Bar. If you prefer the intimate atmosphere of a romantic evening, head to our resort on the right and at the end of the promenade there are three very good restaurants with traditional Greek cuisine.

There are many places on the island of Lefkada that are definitely worth seeing. If you like swimming, then these are the beaches on the west side of the island. If you want to see beautiful mountains, village life, beautiful churches and views, you have to go inland. An island guide is available in your rooms, but we will be happy to recommend some places.

In the southernmost point of the island, do not miss the famous Cape Doukato, a view of the white rock in the foreground, on which proudly rises a huge lighthouse. This area is shrouded in mysterious legends and the story of the poetess Sapfó, who was said to have plunged from this rock into the sea waters out of unrequited love.
