If you’re in need of a peaceful break away, then this small Greek village on the island of Lefkas is the destination for you. Nikiana has a beautiful Mediterranean climate, perfect for visiting in the spring and summer months. The therapeutic calmness of the Greek waters means that Nikiana is a popular destination among keen sailors. The tranquil setting is a heaven for wildlife and plants, which is all ready for you to explore.
Nikiana has an intimate pebbled beach that is popular among tourists and locals alike due to its crystal clear waters and pleasant weather. The warm and calm conditions make Nikiana Beach great for water sports and sailing. If you’re after something a little sandier, take a short trip to the neighbouring bays where there are several Blue Flag beaches that have sun loungers and parasols for those much needed lazy days.
History and culture
Nikiana is close to the island’s capital, Lefkada Town, and it’s here that you can explore the ancient Santa Maura Castle to find out about the rich history of the island. Lefkada Town is the cultural hub of the island, with lots of entertainment and events happening throughout the year, including the International Festival of Folklore and Dance.
Nikiana is a small, picturesque resort that is known for being very laid back and peaceful. If you are looking for a vibrant club scene then perhaps try a larger resort on the island. There is, however, lots of restaurants and bars that are open until the early hours. Sit along the seafront and enjoy freshly caught seafood, whilst you watch the mountains turn a stunning, fiery red from the descending sunset.
K Beach Bar is a popular place to call on, in a prime position it looks over the stunning coastline. Visit in the daytime to soak up the summer sun on the loungers provided and to enjoy a delicious meal. Relax in the evening under palm trees before drinking fruity cocktails and dancing the night away in the lively, feel-good atmosphere.
