Beaches nearby Nikiana
Nikiana is a small place just a ten minutes away from the capital, Lefkas.
More and more tourists choose Nikiana as their base for summer holidays in Lefkada for a reason.
It is close to both Lefkas and Nidri which have the most facilities for tourists, both for evening walks and for fun and supplies.
From Nidri you can visit the islands of Kefalonia, Ithaca, Meganisi and others by ferry, and you can also pay for some organized excursions on large tourist boats, to many Ionian islands as well as to Parga, but also to the most beautiful beaches in Lefkada (Agiofili, Porto Katsiki , Egremni).
There are a large selection of villas in Nikiana that have semi-private beaches with crystal clear sea, and accommodation prices are much lower than in more developed places. The beach right next to the accommodation is a great advantage.
The beautiful Desimi Beach is 13km away from Nikiana, Rouda Bay (Mikros Gialos) 21km, Afteli 25km, Agiofili 31km, Porto Katsiki 42km and Egremni 46km. On the other hand, via Lefkas, be sure to visit the Faneromeni Monastery, which is only 12km away from Nikiana. Pefkoulia Sandy Beach is 16km away, then the lovely town of Agios Nikitas and Milos Beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island (21km) and the famous Kathisma 32km.
In addition to Nidri and Lefkas, which are really close to Nikiana, you can also visit the very nice little town of Sivota which is famous for its fish taverns (22km), as well as perhaps the most beautiful place on Lefkada, Vasiliki (28km).
