Best Beaches in Greece
Porto Katsiki Beach in Lefkada23-04-2013 09:51Οn the Ioanian Sea island of Lefkada is one of the most wellknown beaches in Greece and Europe in general Translation to English means "Port of the Goat", because before only a goat could reach this area.
A very famous and photogenic beach, it is at the bottom of an arc of pale cliff that seem to have the clean lines of something designed by an architect rather than a natural wonder. It rises out of the water like a wedge, narrow at the center of the bay where there are only a few stairs to the sand, and then towering upwards at either end. As well as the white lines of the cliffs, the water is Β tottaly bright, clear blue and the cliffs have grassy topped fringes.
It is 35 km away from Lefkada town, near Athani village. The unique fanstastic Β view of the white cliff over the beach combined with the surrounding green of the area and the cyan water of the sea make this beach a "must visit" place for tourists. It is consistently rated Top European Beach of the Year.
One of the most outstanding and wild beaches of the world. The steep rocks that abruptly fall in the turquoise waters and the thin white sand compose an incredibly exotic view. Especially if you add the high waves and the strong winds that almost always blow in this miraculous coast.
Porto Katsiki has parking lots and canteens, but you will not find anywhere to stay. Some people camp on the beach, but free camping is prohibited. There is a stairwell down to the actual beach from the cliff parking but the beach in general is well organized.
