Dessimi beach is one of the largest bays of Geni peninsula, on the east coast of Lefkada.
The beach is also a camping site and a small port, with some fishing boats. On the slopes of the surrounding mountains there grows lush vegetation, which makes Dessimi beach (Desimi) especially green area. In the background of the beach there is a small parking site, with some taverns and bars. Dessimi beach is also great for snorkeling, where if you are lucky, can see some species of fish, squids, small octopuses, and shells. The beach is very well protected from the waves, the sea surface is calm almost always here. The sand is quite narrow, so Dessimi beach can be crowded in the afternoons during high season.
