It's still warm into late fall with October experiencing average highs in the lows 70s.

You'll find it's worth your while to bring some sturdy shoes. The geography of Lefkada is mountainous, lush in some parts, and barren in others, which makes it a great hiking spot. Along the island's rugged coastline, there are plenty of rocky bays and coves with lovely beaches, which are never too far away, no matter where your Lefkada vacation rental is.
