Avali beach

The beauty of Avali beach will touch you, with amazing blue waters and spectacular views!

Avali beach is characterized by the extraordinary features of the western side of Lefkada. It has amazing natural scenery, surrounded with lush vegetation on the slopes of the mountains. You can reach Avali from Kalamitsi village, just follow the road signs to Kavalikefta beach and you will find a road junction to Avali after a few kilometres. The road that leads here is quite narrow, but this beach is definitely worth a visit! You can see some western beaches from the heights (Kathisma, Gaidaros, Avali, Kavalikefta, Megali Petra), Avali is situated on the northern side and easy to identify.

After a few turns there is a small parking site and a cantina, which operates seasonal, especially during the summer months. Avali beach bar provides tables and seats for visitors with some food and drink, and great views to the beach.

Avali is not a fully organized beach, but sometimes there are some parasols and sunbeds for rent. If you want to be sure, take the beach equipment with you.

The surface of the Ionian Sea is sometimes calm, but there are many times when big waves are coming. The seabed is filled with coarse sand and some rocky formations, with a few places with fine sand. The wide parts of the beach are located on the southern side, in the north side (towards Gaidaros / Theotokos beach) the shore is much narrow and rocky. The blue colours of the sea are spectacular, and bring some coolness for visitors during hot summer days.

Avali is not so popular as other beaches on the western side of Lefkada, but it is a beautiful region of the island!
