Pefkoulia Beach

Pefkoulia Beach - Greece

Pefkoulia is a wide open sandy beach that gives way to the clear, almost luminous blue-green waters of the Ionian sea. It is situated on the west coast about 10 kilometers southwest of Lefkada Town, near the village of Agios Nikitas. It is definitely one of the biggest beaches on Lefkada and also considered to be one of the best beaches on the island.

In the summer, Pefkoulia is a popular spot for visitors, so it can become crowded. It is easy to access, and there are plenty of activities on offer. You can rent parasols and loungers on the beach if all you want to do is kick back and gaze out at the sea in all colours of blue.

To the rear of the beach the terrain rises sharply and is covered with lush green vegetation. This gives Pefkoulia something of a wild feel, and generally speaking, bar the summer holidays it is. The ends of the beach have some larger boulders and are more secluded, if you are looking for a more peaceful spot to relax. Alternaitvely, take a walk and you should find some spectacular viewpoints of the beach and coastline of this area.
