Located only 2km from Vasiliki, Agiofili is one of the most beautiful beaches on Lefkada. It can be reached by car, but the last 700-800m you would have to walk to the beach. The length of the pedestrian section depends mainly on the road’s condition. After heavy rains, its condition worsens as holes start to form, therefore the larger part of the road you have to go by foot. The road is mostly uphill and it’s not so pleasant for walks in hot summer days. Jeeps can easily reach the beach which has large parking that can cost up to 5e, depending on the period of the year.
When you get close to the beach and see it from the above, you’ll be delighted to realize that the walking was worth it. The beach is not large, it’s gravelly like most beaches on Lefkada and the sea is amazingly blue. Unlike other popular beaches on Lefkada (Egremni, Porto Katsiki…) the sea is not milky blue, but transparent and great for diving. The sea world is very rich, so the Agiofili represents a paradise for divers.
Sunbeds and parasols on the beach can be rented for 6e (two sunbeds and a parasol). During high season it’s better to come earlier or to bring your own equipment because of the crowd. There’s no shoal, depth is gradual, so this beach is more suitable for swimmers than for children. The most beautiful part of the beach (without rocks in the water) is the right-hand part, next to the rocks towards Vasiliki.
For those who don’t like walking, there are taxi boats from Vasiliki to Agiofili beach (the ticket costs 6e per person in both ways). The boats depart from 10 AM and the last boat from the beach returns at 18:30.
You shouldn’t miss this beach.
