Informations about Perigiali, Lefkada
This small seaside settlement was built on the foot of the Skaros mountain, which is one of the highest mountains on the east coast of Lefkada. The area of Perigiali is definitely more mountanious than in Nidri, so next to the main road there are just a few narrow streets, which lead to the local apartments and hotels. The village has very easy access, because the east main road passes through its center.
On the main street you can find mini market, restaurant and apartments, and the atmospheres are always much calmer than in Nidri.

From the coastline of the village you can see Sparti, an uninhibitated tiny island with lush vegetation. The mountains of the Greek mainland are also clearly visible, the highest peaks are located just a few kilometres away, beyond the sea.
The small, but sandy and shallow beaches of Perigiali are located in the southern sides and in the north both. Some sections are not so suitable for swimming, but the best beaches of the area can be reached within a few minutes walk. These recommended places are Passa beach in the north, or you can walk to Nidri beach in the south. Passa beach belongs to this village, therefore some people and a few maps mention it as Perigiali beach.
Perigiali has a port for a few fishing boats and smaller yachts, and it is also equipped with a petrol station for boats. This is much more a small pier than a real port, but for the local boats it is enough. On maps you can find this place as Perigiali Marina, or Μαρίνα Περιγιάλι in Greek language.
