Suburb of Apolpena is located about 1km from the center of Lefkas on the way to Agios Nikitas and has a population of around 500 people. From the hill above Apolpena you can find the most beautiful view of Lefkas town.
In the center of the village there is a church dedicated to St. Nicholas who is also the patron saint of the settlement, while only 2km away is the famous Monastery Faneromeni, dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
Apolpena has only begun to develop in the last ten years. This delay is most easily explained by its distance from the sea, since the nearest beach Agios Ioannis is located about 3km from the village. The advantage of Apolpena in terms of tourism is the low cost of accommodation compared to other places in Lefkada, as well as an excellent position for touring the whole island and the proximity of the center of Lefkada. The center is accessible by car, on foot, taxi or bus, operating on the Lefkas-Agios Nikitas/Kathisma line.
