Afteli beach

Afteli beach is a small, but very lovely beach in the eastern side of Lefkada.

It can be accessed through the main road that leads on the east from Nidri to Vasiliki. Just follow the road signs to Evgiros and drive through the village. The distance from Evgiros village to Afteli beach is only 2 kilometres, but the road is quite narrow with some curves, and you have to pay attention when you drive here.

At the end of the asphalt road there is a small parking site with a traditional tavern. This tiny natural bay is organized with a few parasols and sunbeds, but the number of the places are strongly limited. The emerald waters of Afteli beach are good for snorkeling also, you can may see some interesting sea creatures here if you dive.

The anchored fishing boats and the green scenery are quite idyllic, the visitors like the charming views and friendly atmosphere very much.

The seabed is filled with pebbles and coarse sand here, so in case of sensitive foot you may need water shoes. The surrounding hills in the background of Afteli are famous from its evergreen pine forests and bushes, the vegetation is especially lush in the area. The sea surface is usually calm here, there are no waves like at the western beaches of Lefkada – Afteli bay is very well protected from the winds and streams. These qualities make Afteli great for swimming almost every day, from spring to late autumn.
