The main feature of Gialos beach is a calm atmosphere.
The beach can be only accessed by a long road in the western side of Lefkada, so it is abandoned many times during the summer months.
The route to Gialos beach starts in Athani village, which is a small settlement located in the southwestern hills of Lefkada. The road has been renewed a few years ago, because an earthquake destroyed some parts of the old road. As long as the road works took place, the road was closed for some months but recently it was open. Anyway you must watch the road signs about actual road conditions.
The largest part of Gialos is unorganized, but during summer months you can find a small beach bar next to parking site. At some parts of the beach you may have to use water shoes, because the seabed is filled with rocks and large pebbles.
Gialos is ideal for relaxing, and enjoying pleasant sea temperatures. This beach is peaceful in most of the time, because it have only a few visitors daily.
