Before we start talking about Lefkada nudist beaches, very important to know, that naturism is not allowed everywhere in Greece.

Now let’s see, what choices do you have for naturism in Lefkada island!

First of all, nudism is only acceptable far away from the main parts of the beaches. In the most famous and much crowded beaches, such as Porto Katsiki beach, Kathisma beach, Agiofili beach, etc, don’t take off your swimsuit. If you visit the organized and most popular beaches of Lefkada, the maximum is usually beeing topless for ladies, but if there are families or locals, you should not take your bikini top off.

Now let’s see the good news! There are several secluded beaches or beach parts in Lefkada. You can find easily some places far away from the crowds, where you can take off your clothes safely. Some of the beaches in Lefkada (especially on the west coast) are long and wide, and most of them are organized only in the central areas.

Agios Ioannis north – Gira west

Agios Ioannis beach is well known for its old, ruined windmills and amazing kitesurf potentials. If you go further to north and leave the windmills, you can find some secluded places for nudism certainly. This part of Agios Ioannis is usually much less visited, even during high season months. This area is quite long between the windmills and Gira beach (Gyra), which can be recommended for naturists.

Pefkoulia beach, south & north

The main part of the amazing Pefkoulia beach is fully organized, because the famous DECK bar operates here. But you have two options if you would like to visit Pefkoulia and you are looking for places for nudism. Find the most southern parts of the beach with large rocks, or go to the north, in the direction to the famous lookout! The north side of Pefkoulia is slighly better for nudism, because the shore is much longer in that region, and your personal space can be also much larger.

Milos beach south

A few years ago the south part (at the giant vertical rocky form) was the primary destination for nudists in Mylos beach. But be aware, in recent years it changed a lot! This amazing beach on the west coast of Lefkada has become much more popular in recent years, and sometimes the taxi boat which take passengers from Agios Nikitas to Mylos disembark here. During high season months, especially in July and in August this place can be crowded, so always make sure the actual conditions, and for nudists / naturists this place is much better in early low season or a few weeks after high season.

Kathisma beach is very popular beach in Lefkada, but don’t worry! Just walk to the most southern point where the large rocks are, and leave the last buildings.

Gialos beach

The beach is far away from the crowds and can be also a great location for naturism. Gialos beach is known as one of the most favourite beaches among naturists in Lefkada island, but you have to go further from the organized area.

Egremni beach

Before the strong earthquake destroyed the road and the stairs of Egremni beach in 2015, the north and south parts of this long and beautiful beach were recommended destinations for nudism. After the beach was only accessible by boat, Egremni lost its significance for nudism for a few years. But since 2021 when the asphalt road and the stairs of Egremni were renovated, you can walk down again! If you arrive in the morning before the crowds and excursion boats, you can find secluded places on both sides.

On the east coast can’t really find a good one, which belong to Lefkada nudist beaches: most of the east beaches are much smaller, where can’t be find hidden areas or secluded parts which can be recommended. Some small bays and sections maybe, which can be reached by boats, or belong to a distant villa or apartment.
