Don't miss the following when in Lefkada! Visit the Waterfalls of Nydri! At the outskirts of Nidri you can find the Dimossari waterfalls. During the summer the waterfalls make the perfect place for swimming in the crystal clear waters of the lake. You should also visit the nearby seafront village of Nydri. Go widsurfing in Vassiliki! (or at least try it for once in your life!) There is this sandy beach in Vassiliki village with swallow waters making it perfect for families. Vasiliki beach is popular for windsurfing. It has been awarded as one of the best 10 beaches in the world and top 3 beaches in Europe for windsurfing. Take a taxi boat or rent a boat to discover those magical beaches! In Nikiana you can rent a boat or enjoy sea sports at NV beach bar, very near your summer house. Visit Eglouvi the highest village of Lefkada where the world's best lentils are cultivated. If you are in Lefkada on the 6th of August don't miss the lentil's traditional festival with local food,music and dances that is organised every year. On the last week of August, follow the International Folckore Festival. The festival takes place during the whole last week of August, from one Sunday to the other, commencing with the great parade of peace and friendship, the evening's ceremony marking the opening night (on that first Sunday night) with a very short appearance by all dance groups. During the week we have their full appearances and performances by each group and finally reaching the peak on the second Sunday with the majestic ending ceremony to include the exchange of gifts and the final dance of peace on stage by all groups. Visit the Castle of Agia Mavra. The castle is situated near the channel, two km outside Hora and has an interesting history. The original building was constructed by the Sicilian, Ioannis Orsini, in 13th-14th century. In the Castle, one can admire the church of Agia Mavra. According to tradition, the church was built in the 15th century. After the island's occupation by the Turks in 1479, the church became a mosque. Today the castle is open to tourists and many cultural events take place during the summer. Visit Kalamitsi Village. Kalamitsi is situated 23 km southeast of Lefkada, on a slope with a fantastic panoramic view. It is one of the oldest villages of the island and has thirteen windmills. The village was built in that altitude in order to avoid the pirate’s raids (like most villages of the Greek islands). The area has many churches, like famous of Panagia stous Kipous. Get a boat from Vasiliki to go for a one day trip around the island. You will most certainly visit the cave of Papanikolis, named after the Greek submarine Papanikolis, which used to hide in that cave during the WW2. The waters are so clear you can see everything. Unfortunately, you can't swim there, as the water is very cold and there are a lot of boats coming in and out to admire the place. Usually you get to see dolphins swimming next to the boat (and the captains playing with them)! Visit the Temple of Apollo: It is believed that the spot where the lighthouse now stands (60m above sea level), was where sacrifices to the gods were made. However, after the 6th century, desperate lovers chose that spot to make their own sacrifices. It is believed that the poet Sappho was the first to jump from this cliff. This history rich site is surely a place to visit. ...And definitely try Scuba Diving: The underwater paradise world of Lefkada, offers unforgettable experiences to the lovers of diving. If you wish to explore and enjoy for the first time the magic of underwater world without being obliged to attend the full training program, you could attend lessons of diving in a pool, theory and sea diving!
