What to expect

Lefkas is bursting with beauty and history – and this panoramic tour gives you a great taste of both. You'll discover its best sights, with a guide bringing everything to life. Star turns include Santa Maura Castle, Faneromeni Monastery and the villages of Agios Nikitas and Vassiliki.

Your adventure begins when we drive over a causeway and a drawbridge to Santa Maura Castle. Covering a whole islet, the walls are the only intact part of this once strategic Venetian fortification. Next up is the archaeological museum followed by Faneromeni Monastery, which boasts great views over the capital and lagoon.

Then we'll head along the west coast to Agios Nikitas. This gorgeous village slopes down towards the turquoise sea. It's an ideal spot for a coffee break and a gander in the shops. From here, visit Kathisma beach, where you'll have a couple of hours to swim, sunbathe and relax. Finally, drive to the south coast village of Vassiliki, watching the windsurfers in the bay while chilling at the harbour.

    Lefkas Sunset Boulevard

    There's no better way to savour the atmosphere of Lefkas town than by wandering the maze of narrow alleys that make up the heart of the island's capital. Pause before picture-postcard churches with interiors richly decorated with frescoes and icons. See the Charamoglios Library and other historic attractions, too. And then there are the shops and tavernas. The buzz becomes infectious when you reach the main square. The head to the seafront, where the locals are enjoying their evening stroll before watching the sea bathed in scarlet and gold at sunset.
