Nikiana is known as a popular tourist settlement in Lefkada during summer months, and has a tiny beach.
The main beach of Nikiana is located on the north side of the village, next to the road. There are a few parking places also, where you can park your vehicle easily. The beach beach is usually not organized, but if you arrive in the morning, you can find some natural shade under the trees. The sea is always shallow and calm, like the east beaches of Lefkada. The emerald coloured water feels warm from the middle of June to September, and almost lasts the entire high season.
Nikiana beach can be especially recommended for families and children, because of its calm atmospheres and shallow waters. During summer days the main beach can be crowded, but you can find some other smaller beaches in the southern side of Nikiana, with much less visitors.
Next to the main beach there is a small port of Nikiana, with bars, taverns and markets. The scenery of the area is lovely, this part of Lefkada is characterized by low hills and lush vegetation. On the top of the hills there are some newly built apartments and studios, many of them can be rented for a holiday. Check Nikiana apartments and rooms…
