Agios Ioannis Beach
Located on the west coast of Lefkada, Agios Ioannis is one of the most northerly beaches on the island. The closest beach to Lefkada town, which is just a couple of kilometres away, it is often the first port of call for residents of the town looking for a beach escape. However, its length of several kilometres means there is normally space enough for everyone without Agios Ioannis ever feeling crowded.
It’s the southern end of Agios Ioannis that is generally the centre of attention. Here visitors will find bars and cafes, as well as some accommodation offering spectacular views out to sea over the golden sands and blue-green waters. It gets wilder the further north along the beach you head, ending with three attractive historic windmills.
Agios Ioannis is a well-organised beach, with plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas available for hire. Its sands, interspersed with small pebbles in places, provide a shallow entrance into the sea. This makes it a great place to paddle with younger children, although it’s rare to see anyone swimming here because of the strength of the wind. That said, this does make Agios Ioannis one of the best beaches on Lefkada for windsurfing and kite surfing.
