Paralia Nidri, Nydri beach

The main beach of Nidri village is a well organized place in front of several picturesque islands. If you visit Nidri or you stay in this village on your holiday, you will find Nidri beach in the north side of the village, in the direction of Lefkada town and the neighboring Perigiali.

The seabed of Nidri is filled with coarse sand and pebbles, where you can forget water shoes. The emerald coloured sea is shallow and very calm, so Nidri beach is especially recommended for families with children. The swim is also a great activity here, because during summer months there are no such big waves as on the west coast of Lefkada, and you can forget the strong winds also. The surrounding mountains with the famous Skaros (Skaroi forest) and the small islands make nice and very friendly Nidri beach, the scenery is so green as the sea.

The tiny islands around Nidri offer wonderful sights to the sea – the first is called Madouri, which is exactly faces to Nidri beach. Behind this small islet you can notice the famous Skorpios island, which was the private property of Onassis family for decades. A few years ago, in 2013 Skorpios was sold by the descendant of Aristotle Onassis to a Russian billionare family called Rybolovlev.
