Vlicho is a small village of Lefkada island, located on the east coast, just a few kilometers away from the southern side of Nidri. The houses of the village were built on a narrow place, where the slopes of the mountains and the sea meet. The main road which leads on the east coast of Lefkada passes through the village, so everybody will meet Vlicho who travel by car or by scooter between Nidri and Vasiliki. In front of the village, which is known also as Vlycho or Βλυχό in Greek language, you can see the hills of Yenion peninsula, and a shallow lagoon.

Beside the road there is a roadwalk for pedestrians, which connects to each other the tourist facilites.
