The beauty of Avali will touch you, with amazing blue waters and spectacular views!
Avali beach is characterized by the main 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 the beach 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 narrow and winding, but this beach is definitely worth a visit! You can see some western beaches from above (Kathisma, Gaidaros, Avali, Kavalikefta, Megali Petra), Avali lies on the northern side and easy to identify.
At the end of the road there is a small parking site and a cantina, which operates during the summer months. The cantina with some tables offer for visitors some basic food and drink, and great views also to Avali beach.
Avali is not an organized beach, there are no parasols and sunbeds, so you must carry your equipment. The surface of the Ionian Sea is moderate here, sometimes calm, but another time big waves are coming. The seabed is filled with coarse sand and some rocky formations, but there are a few places with fine sand. The wider parts of the beach are located on the southern side, in the north the shore is much narrow and rocky. The blue colours of the sea are spectacular, and bring some coolness during hot summer days.
Avali is not so popular like other beaches on the western side of Lefkada, but is a beautiful region of the island!
