There is little doubt that Egremni beach is one of the finest on the island of Lefkada, which by default makes it one of the best in Greece. It is a beautiful spot with the long white sand beach backed by high limestone cliffs. However, it is the water colour that sets Egremni apart, a fantastic milky blue yet crystal clear. The 325 steps down to the beach don’t seem to have put too many people off as this is a popular beach and the facilities are good. That said, it is a big enough beach that you can still find some peace towards the northern end if you so desire.
On the 17th November 2015 a powerful earthquake struck Egremni causing extensive landslides along this section of the Lefkada coast. Reports indicate that much of the beach has been covered but the extent of this damage is not clear yet. The only thing to be thankful about is the earthquake happened during one of the quietest periods of the year, although two local women died as a result of the quake.
Egremni beach is set to be open to the public once again. There has been access to the beach by boat for some time but work has been carried out to restore foot access via the steps down to the beach.
