Location / where to find: next to Lefkada town

Paralia Kastro

Kastro beach is located close to the pontoon bridge of Lefkada, in the north side of the island.

Kastro has very easy access, because it lies at the lagoon of Lefkada town, only two kilometres away from the capital. If you drive to the exit of the island, don’t turn towards the metal pontoon bridge (P/C Agia Mavra), just follow the road.

This beach is located only 300 meters in the north from the pontoon bridge, there are some parking places too. Kastro beach is a slightly organized area with a few parasols and sunbeds for rent, but beach bars usually don’t operate here. In the background you can see an old factory, an unused and abandoned hall, which was a winery a few decades ago.

Kastro beach can be loved for its calm waters and turquoise sea colours, and the close proximity of Lefkada town – it is the nearest among Lefkada beaches.

The seabed is filled here with coarse and and some pebbles, these qualities make the beach suitable for smaller children also. The atmospheres of the beach are usually calm, it is crowded only during high season weekends. Visitors come here often on foot or by bicycle from Lefkada town, because it is situated only one kilometer from the city centre.
