Nydri, the islands and the surroundings
For visitors spending only a long weekend, there are three basic routes covering a good portion of the island.
Route Nydri, the islands and the surroundings explores a large part of the island’s eastern side. It runs along the coast of the generally calm straits separating Lefkada from Aitoloakarnania, among plentiful greenery, past sites of archaeological interest and villages with enticing fish tavernas. This route can be enjoyed under any weather conditions, and for a swim it offers sheltered beaches where the sea is almost never rough. The abundant vegetation reaches down to the shore, embellishing the landscape with all its shades of green and blends with the spectrum of blues of the sea.
