Top 3 Beaches to visit in Ionian Islands


Myrtos Beach

Very popular with tourists and locals alike, Myrtos beach on Kefalonia is an idyllic spot to spend the afternoon basking in the sun and splashing in the vibrant Greek Mediterranean. This is probably the easiest spot of all, on this list, to reach, any driver on their way north round the winding coastal road beyond Myrtos can pull up in the viewpoint area and capture a few shots. Great for bright daylight shots, overcast and ominous snaps or even sunset poses, it’s well worth a visit. The Porto Katsiki Walkway

On the isle of Lefkada sits the beautiful beach of Porto Katsiki. Bright sandy beaches are met with clear azure waters, backed by steep and awe-inspiring cliffs. A lone and steep staircase leads from the woodland above to this cutaway paradise. Porto Katsiki beach is one of the finest and most luxurious beaches in all of Greece, and is a definitely a place you want to write home about. Running alongside the beach is a small rocky peninsula, along which a concrete viewing walkway has been installed. From here you can get incredible shots of the beach as well as the beautiful Mediterranean that stretches out from it.Agiofili

Located only 2km from Vasiliki, Agiofili is one of the most beautiful beaches on Lefkada. It can be reached by car, but the last 700-800m you would have to walk to the beach. The length of the pedestrian section depends mainly on the road’s condition. After heavy rains, its condition worsens as holes start to form, therefore the larger part of the road you have to go by foot. The road is mostly uphill and it’s not so pleasant for walks in hot summer days. Jeeps can easily reach the beach which has large parking that can cost up to 5e, depending on the period of the year.
