Beaches in Vassiliki town
Vasiliki is located on the south side of Lefkada and is about 40km from Lefkas. The place itself consists of three sections, central, with marina and promenade, settlements around Pondi Beach, on the way to Porto Katsiki and Egremni. The third part is the smallest and most peaceful, with small beaches, located on the way to the beach Agiofili.
The main beach in Vassiliki is located at the beginning of the promenade, next to the marina and is about 300m long. It is mostly gravelly with gradual entry into the sea. It is separated from Pondi Beach by only a small rainwater drainage channel. There is one big beach bar on the beach, as well as a place to rent boats and water sports equipment. The town beach is the least popular in Vassiliki and tourists generally opt for Pondi or Agiofili or so-called “small beaches”.
Pondi Beach is Vassiliki’s largest tourist attraction and attracts the largest number of tourists. The beach itself is sandy, with a long shoal about a hundred meters out into the open sea. It is an ideal choice for families with young children because of the fine sand and shallow sea. Pondi is one of the favorite destinations of kite surfing tourists. The beach is often has wind and this creates ideal conditions for water sports. Nevertheless, there are rarely large waves on the beach, and therefore Pondi Beach is a very specific tourist attraction. In recent years, the largest number of new accommodations are built around Pondi Beach. The Pondi area has plenty of restaurants, beach bars and places to rent water sports equipment. An additional benefit of Pondi is the creating and asphalting of the road through the hill to the most beautiful beaches of Lefkada, Porto Katsiki and Egremni, which can now be reached in 15 minutes by car from Pondi.
The “little beaches” are located between the center of Vassiliki and Agiofili Beach. These are a few small sandy beaches where there is almost no crowd, the sea is calm and crystal clear. The only downside is that you have to get up a little early if you want to take a good spot on one of these beaches. There are no restaurants, no other similar facilities in this part of Vassiliki, only private homes, hotels and private accommodations. It is about 1.5km from Agiofili Beach.
If you are spending your holidays in Vassiliki, we definitely recommend you to visit all these beaches, of course with the inevitable beaches Agiofili, Egremni and Porto Katsiki, which can be reached by car or boat from the marina to Vassiliki at very reasonable rates.
