The village of Nikiana is a quiet, but well equipped tourist resort between Lefkada town and Nidri village.

Nikiana is located on the eastern side of island, and belongs to the most popular villages of Lefkada. If you are driving on the east main road, you will meet this settlement, because the road goes through its center. This is a peaceful tourist resort with some apartments, hotels, bakeries, supermarkets and other shops, surrounded by hills with lush vegetation.

The port of Nikiana is a small and picturesque marina in the northern side of the village, where some private yachts and boats are anchored.

Nikiana will be a good starting place to discover the area, it is relatively close to Nidri or Lefkada town either. The accomodations here have a good price value (most of the time the prices are noticeably lower than in Nidri), and for this reason many families choose this resort for a holiday.

Nikiana has some small beaches, which are characterized by emerald water colours, coarse sand, shallow seabed and tranquil sea surface. Most of these beaches are unorganized, they have calm atmospheres and pleasantly refreshing waters. The main beach of Nikiana is close to the port, and ideal for families with small children also.
