Paralia Porto Katsiki

It's very hard to find words to describe this beauty, the Greek Island Lefkada has produced over millions of years. We are talking about the beach, but not any kind of beach, probably top 3 beaches in whole Greece and in the top 10 of the whole world. To reach this beauty beach you need to go to the region of Ionian islands and visit the island Lefkada. The closest village is called Ag. Nikolaos Niras and the beach itself has the famous name of Porto Katsiki. The beach is located on a remote place in the middle of nowhere between high hills. The road to the beach is paved but it is very steep and on some places very narrow. Because the beach is very famous all around the world and very crowded in the summertime, you also have a lot of parking places available. From the parking place to the beach you need to take a 200 meter long path which is 30 meters in height difference from the beach itself. The beach, because of the steep pathway and no beach infrastructure is more suitable for adventurer type of visitors. The main surface on the beach are whites pebbles and some rocks. The water here has a special color, which is unique in the whole world, what makes this place even more attractive. The water entry is very nice and swimming starts immediately. On the beach itself you have zero beach infrastructure, but more is located around the parking place, where you will find also some fast food restaurants, shops and bars. Accommodation in this remote place is not available.
