Porto Katsiki is one of the most beautiful beaches on Lefkada Island. With its crystal clear blue sea,sheer white cliffs and sandy beaches, this little slice of paradise is quite incredible. Bookmarked by towering limestone cliffs the only access down to the beach is by way of 80 steep steps.

Porto Katsiki beach is located about 40 kilometers southwest of Lefkada Town, which is the capital city on the island. If you drive from the town, be aware that the roads are narrow and there aren’t any gas stations along the way. Travelers can reach the beach by taxi-boats from Nidri or Vasiliki.

While you are visiting the beach, head into the water for swimming, sail, or just a paddle. The geology here is limestone, so the water is usually a little bit too cloudy for snorkeling. If you are more in the mood for relaxing you can rent sunbeds and umbrellas. There is also a snack bar at the top of the stairs.

This beach is perfect for people who want to enjoy the serene beauty or the landscape and take in the incredible turquoise blue waters.

The best time to visit Porto Katsiki is late May or early June. There are generally fewer tourists during these times, so the beach is less crowded. If you come during the main holiday season, try to visit the beach early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Whenever you decide, this unique spot is well worth the visit.
