Nudist beaches in Lefkada
If you prefer naturism on your holiday, you have some options in Lefkada.
Good to know, that naturism is not allowed everywhere in Greece. Greek people are not prefer this way of sunbathing, so before you take off your clothes, look around where you are. There are only a few official naturist beaches in Greece, but don’t worry – almost in every Greek island you will find some solution. Let’s see, what choices you have in Lefkada island!
First of all, the nudism is only acceptable far away from the main beach parts. At the most famous and crowded beaches like Porto Katsiki, don’t leave your swimsuit. At organized and visited beaches the maximum is usually beeing topless for ladies, but if there are some families or locals, you should not take bikini top off.
And now the good news! There are several secluded beaches in Lefkada, and 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 are long and wide, and most of them are organized only in the central areas.
The best options for nudism in Lefkada island are the following:
Agios Ioannis north
Agios Ioannis is well known from its large windmills. If you go further north than windmills, you can easily find secluded places for nudism.
Pefkoulia beach, south & north
The main part of Pefkoulia beach is fully organized, the famous Deck bar operates here. You have two options if you would like to visit Pefkoulia. Find the southern part of the beach with large rocks, or go to the north. The northern side is slighly better because the shore is much longer in that region, and your personal space will be also much larger.
Milos beach south
In the last years the southern part (at the vertical rocky form) was the primary destination for nudists. Be aware: sometimes the small boats bring the tourists here, so always make sure the actual conditions.
Walk to the most southern point, where the large rocks are. Usually this is the right place, where nudism is allowed in Kathisma.

The beach is far away from the crowds and also a great location for naturism. Gialos beach is known as one of the most favourite beaches among naturists in Lefkada island.
Before an earthquake destroyed the road in 2015, northern and southern parts of the long and beautiful Egremni beach were amazing destinations for nudism. Since the beach can be only reached by boat, unfortunately Egremni lost its significance for nudists.
