(The survival guide of the beach)

Lefkada Pefkoulia


✍️ I am not one of the people who's their judge is not emotionally affected about Lefkada, as I have probably spent my best childhood and teenage summers on this island but I promise you that I will try to use it as much objectively I can and all that because you as I have the pleasure of you - reading this article in order to discover more useful information about one of my favorite tourist destinations.

◉ Below, I will tell you about Pefkoulia and its famous beach with the blue - turquoise water, one of Lefkada's best west side beaches and I'll give you a clue of why (when it isn't windy or wavy) it's considered to be one of the best beaches on the island.

Lily's tips:

• WHERE IS PEFKOULIA BEACH?

Pefkoulia beach is on the road to Agios Nikitas traditional village (if you set the point of departure on the Lefkada's main town. The beach is located about 10 km away from it).

Pefkoulia is about 3 km away from Agios Nikitas village.
It's impossible to lose the sight of the beach, as the road to Agios Nikitas village (and its beach) is one of the main roads of Lefkada and Pefkoulia (as you will see below in my photos) could be seen clearly.



• Which are the special characteristics of this beach?

Pefkoulia beach is one of the most famous (western) beaches of Lefkada with amazing (color) waters and has ✔ EASY ROAD ACCESS and you will find ✔ Free space to park your car, descending from the road to the beach but if you are vissiting the beach on the summer season it's preferred to park it on the road above, as you will probably see there many others cars too.

Pefkoulia beach ✔ belongs to the organized beaches of Lefkada, with sunbeds and beach umbrellas to rent.

You'll also find on the right side of the beach (as you are looking to the Ionian sea) a cafe-bar for coffee, drink or a food.

It's almost impossible to find a beach tree for natural shade to put your towel under - in the sand, so if you don't want to rent beach umbrellas or sunbeds but you still need to be on the shade you can bring your own umbrella with on the beach.

✔ The water in Pefkoulia beach are colored in an intense light blue.
The sea is considered to be in a shallow depth and is going deeper as you are swimming away far from the coast.
Keep in mind that the most western beaches of Lefkada are getting too early too deep, so you should always be very careful when it's a windy day ✔ as the waves could easily drift you away if you can't swim amazingly well or if you are not in a good physical and fitness shape.

The ✔ sandy beach with its thick sand and small pebbles ensures that it will be difficult to get disturbed when it blows (as in many Aegean islands).
On the right side of the beach you will find ✔ small or larger stones that are not visible when it there are a lot of waves and you might get hurt as you are trying to swim out to the shore.

✔ OTHER CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BEACH are that as you swim (while you are in the sea) you can enjoy the characteristic view of the pine-trees on the side of the small hill - the view that distinguishes most parts of Lefkada.

On the windy days if you don't want to rent a deck chair, keep in your mind that you should not put your towel next to the waves because it may soon get wet.

Finally:
The beauty of Pefkoulia Beach is not comparable to the beauty of Kathisma beach, Mylos beach (accessible from the village of Agios Nikitas), Porto Katsiki or Egremni beach.
But it worths your dive especially when the wind blows too wild in the others beaches.



• Is this a beach for nudists?

Generally not - although many people believe this reputation.
Its main patrons are families with children (usually not too young - unless their parents are locals) and young couples or friends.
You may find individual nudists in May or at the end of September - to the left side of the beach, close to the rocks - but it's still quite rare.



• HOW CAN I GO THERE?

The best way to go to Pefkoulia beach is ✔ with your own (private or hired> car.
As I mentioned above the beach is located on the main road from the city of Lefkada to Agios Nikitas village.
Another easy way to have access is to visit the beach ✔ by the local bus (see more info for every local route of Lefkada's local buses here).



• WHEN to go to Pefkoulia beach?

If you are staying near Lefkada's town and want to swim in a tropical beach without being far away from your hotel and it's not a windy day so the sea will not have big waves like the most western beaches of the island do.


• IS PEFKOULIA BEACH ORGANIZED?

As mentioned above, Pefkoulia is one of the organized beaches of Lefkada, offering easy road access, beach umbrellas, sun loungers (for rent at the price of 6 euros per set) and a pool bar - restaurant (the DECK Beachside Cafe) to eat, drink - and why not: To dance.

• What else to do while you are in Pefkoulia?

Basically you should not miss the view of the beach from the main road.
Before you go down to the beach, walk further about 50 meters (to Agios Nikitas village direction) and give yourself the chance to admire - and why not - to be photographed, in one of the most beautiful spots of Lefkada.

You will remember me (check my photos on the spot below to understand exactly what I mean).

Also, if you have time and you are in the right mood after swimming, drive to the picturesque village of Agios Nikitas, which is an ideal place for coffee on the beach or for dining in the famous restaurant “Sapfo” (in front of Agios Nikitas beach) or visit Kathisma beach to admire the view of a beautiful sunset with the sun disappearing to the Ionian sea.

• Okay.
  Now that we have admired and photographed with this incredible - exotic view from above, what do you say?
Should we go down to the beach to enjoy it too?


You can do the same with the view of Pefkoulia at any time of the year, as long as the weather is good.

Another good point is right before the downhill road (from which are the two photos below - on April) but I did not mention it at first because it's the most popular one (everyone knows) and where most of the people have photographed.

• Summing up for Pefkoulia beach:


Pefkoulia is one of the most spectacular beaches of Lefkada, with its distinctive sea color, very close to the town and the weather isn't windy - so there will be no wild waves - it's a very good beach for swimming while you are on a vacations on Lefkada, unlike most of the other western beaches of the island, as it doesn't get too deep that early.
