Bay of Vlicho

Vlicho – a large boat repair center in Lefkada

Vlicho is known well from its ship repair facilities. If you drive through the village, next to the bay you can see dozens of boats which are under construction. Because of repair activities the bay in front of Vlicho isn’t recommended for a swim, and there are no organized beaches. The sea is usually contiminated with oil and other dark-coloured lubricants here, and the shallow water of Vlicho bay refreshes slowly.

 

On the southern side of the village you can find one of the petrol stations of Lefkada, in that case if your car is on low fuel.
