Lefkada is a name you will surely have heard before. Either due to its globally famous and award-wining beaches, or thanks to its neighbouring small islet of Scorpios, which tycoon Aristotle Onassis bought in 1963 and transformed it into a sanctuary for himself and his mega-famous friends (think Liz Taylor, Richard Burton, Winston Churchill, a great number of kings, princess and dukes, shipping magnates and– et us not forget–Jackie Kennedy Onassis). Scorpios garnered global attention once again when its new owner, Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, hosted a huge party for his daughter’s wedding there.
Lefkada is a double-faceted island; it combines stunning white-sanded, unique beaches with turquoise-azure waters that make you think you have been magically transported to the Maldives, with a verdant, mountainous and traditional inland scattered with picturesque small villages (such as Karya with its renowned embroideries, or Exantheia with its quaint beauty).
Relax, you don’t have to choose, you can enjoy both and indulge in every possible beauty this magnificent Ionian island has to offer. As well as Lefkada itself, you can also choose to visit nearby Meganisi, either for a day trip or to stay for a few days at this secret paradise with the beautiful waters and the amazing food.
