Afteli is a small, but charming beach on the southeast.
The beach can be accessed from the main road that leads on the east from Nidri to Vasiliki. Just follow the road signs to Evgiros and drive through the village. From Evgiros Afteli beach is only 2 kilometres away, but the road is narrow with some curves, you have to pay attention if you drive here. At the end of the asphalt road there is a small parking site with a traditional tavern. The tiny bay is organized with a few parasols and sunbeds, but the number of the places are limited. The emerald waters of Afteli is good for snorkeling also, you can see some sea creatures if you dive.
The anchored boats and the scenery are quite idyllic, the visitors like the unfolding views very much.
The seabed is filled with pebbles and coarse sand here, may you need water shoes. The surrounding hills are famous from its evergreen pine forests and bushes, the vegetation is especially lush around the area. The sea is usually calm here, there are no waves like on the western side of Lefkada, because the bay is protected well from the winds and streams. These qualities make Afteli great for swimming almost every day, from spring to late autumn.
