This striking white beach is located on the island of Lefkada and although it is an island, it’s connected to the mainland by a causeway and floating bridge. It is possible to drive to the beach and take the steps down the cliff, but there are also daily boat trips that leave from Nidri and Vasiliki harbour. The ride takes about 1.5 to 2 hours and can be fairly choppy at times.
Good news, despite being a high traffic tourist destination, crime is really low. Apparently this has been voted “Top European Beach of the Year” several times. Kind of a bummer, I thought this was a cute little beach I found by accident because of the photo above. If you happen to go in August, try not to be on the roads around noon because they are thin and traffic will be pretty much stopped at this time.
Traveled to see this incredible beach? This place is too good to be true… There must be a catch… I want to know about it! Comment below.
