Giant rocks, amazing views and peaceful atmospheres are guaranteed at Kavalikefta beach, next to Kalamitsi.
This beach is a little less popular like other famous beaches in the western side of Lefkada island, but despite this Kavalikefta beach is a beautiful and interesting place. The narrow road that leads here between olive groves starts in Kalamitsi village, and an experienced driver is recommended for this route.
At the end of the road there are some parking lots, which are paid parkings till late afternoon. Walking to the beach you can see some parasols and sunbeds for rent, but a little further you can also use your own parasol. Kavalikefta beach is characterized by giant rock forms, pebbles and cliffs, on the shore there are dozens of these massive and spectacular natural forms. You can climb some of them, if you want to jump into the sea.
Next to the car park a small cantina operates with some food and drink, this is the only one facility in the area.
In the southern side of Kavalikefta beach there are some secluded places, and that is the direction where you can find the other superb beach of Lefkada, which is called Megali Petra (‘Giant Rock’). Kavalikefta beach has calm atmospheres most of the time, so it is recommended for everyone, who is interested in peaceful and breathtaking places.
Pay attention: the main parking lot directly next to the tavern is closed for the evening, and secured by a barrier. Another important information for visiting Kavalikefta beach, that the parking sites fill up quickly, and late arrivals can park only next to the narrow road. This sometimes leads to unpleasant traffic situations and moments for drivers, because only one car can fit comfortably on the road.
Because of its exceptional natural beauty and wildness, Kavalikefta is listed by many visitors among the best beaches of Lefkada island!
