During the summer months Agios Nikitas beach can be very crowded, especially in the weekends.On the western side of the beach there is a small walking route, that leads you to the cliffy side. At the eastern side there are some small and secluded bays, which are beloved by naturists.
Behind the village beach you can find a large variety of taverns and coffee bars, offering you nice places to drink some cold or eat something tasty. Some supermarkets and souvenir shops of Agios Nikitas are also close to the beach, where can buy some gifts or other goods for your needs.
As you can see, Agios Nikitas beach is a bit protected from the waves of the west coast, but not as much as the east coast of Lefkada. Behind the beach there can be seen a lifeguard during summer period, who takes care the visitors, and sets the green, yellow or red flags to the tower. In case of red flag the swimming in prohibited due to the large waves.
On the hills next to the village a long hiking trail leads to the other beautiful beach of the western area, which is called Mylos beach. Mylos can be accessed by two different ways from Agios Nikitas. The first access is on foot, where the hike begins in the village center and you have to climb the hills, but this can be hard in the summer heat.
