Lefkas is actually joined to the mainland of Greece by a narrow strip of land and the first town you come to is Lefkas/Lefkada town. Nidri is on the east coast of Lefkas and has a high street full of souvenir shops, clothes shops and ice cream parlours. The waterfront has numerous yachts moored up and there are lots of restaurants along the port. Down at the southern tip of Lefkas is the windsurfing paradise of Vassiliki and from here you can see the Island of Kefalonia.
The Onassis owned island of Skorpios is just across the water and you will go past it if you take a trip across to another island - Meganisi. This is a great place to enjoy a meal of freshly caught fish and to have a dip in the turquoise waters.
