Quick Guide to Lefkas
The Greek island of Lefkas sits close enough to the mainland to be connected by a bridge, but retains its remote island feel. In fact Lefkas is often cited as a place to discover Greek islands as they once were. The unhurried Greek lifestyle persists here; you'll still see traditional dress worn in the mountain villages and the pretty fishing ports still actually operate as fishing ports.
To complete the picture just head to the coast where you'll find unspoilt white sand beaches lapped by crystal clear blue seas. There are some resorts on the east coast of the island, such as Nidri where you'll find two parallel roads lined with welcoming tavernas and late-night bars. Venture to the west coast however and you're likely to have the virgin coastline all to yourself.
