Ligia beach, Paralia Lygia
The beach of Lygia village is a typical, emerald coloured coast on the east side of Lefkada. Lygia beach has easy access, because it can be reached directly next to the main road – the only drawback is the limited number of parking spaces next to the road.
The seabed is filled with coarse sand, gravel and some pebbles, with some rocks in the water. Lygia beach (or Ligia) is organized at some places, which means in the center of the village you can find some parasols and sunbeds for rent.
Families with children visit this beach often, because the Ionian Sea is usually calm and shallow on the east coast of Lefkada. Almost the entire coastline of Lygia is great for swimming and sunbathing, or just for a relax for a few hours.
On the southern side of Ligia village you can visit a water park called Panos Water Sports, which is fun for children.
