Agios Nikitas beach

The slightly organized and bustling Agios Nikitas beach is located on the northern side of the village.

You must walk through Agios Nikitas village to reach this nice city beach, which is a wide bay with calm waters. The beach is relatively shallow, the seabed is filled primarily with coarse sand, small pebbles and some rocks. During the summer months Agios Nikitas beach can be 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. On the eastern side there are some smaller, 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.

From the beach you can see also the great Pefkoulia beach in the distance, which is listed among Lefkada’s best beaches as well.

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 is accessible in two ways from the village, on foot through the hills, or by taxi boat from Agios Nikitas beach, which depart every hour.
