Rumble Porto Katsiki beach on Lefkada Island is one of the most beautiful Greek beaches. It is also in the top of the list of best beaches in Europe each year. It is situated 40 kilometers southwest of Lefkada Town, the island’s capital city. Porto Katsiki beach looks truly fascinating surrounded by incredible hills which make it accessible only by 80 steep steps descending along the cliff. This is one of the most favorite beaches and it is considered to be one of the island’s major attractions. Porto Katsiki owes its fame to fascinating landscape and most of all, crystal clear blue sea. Golden sandy beach adds a beauty to the overall impression of Porto Katsiki.
Driving to the beach from island’s villages is not so convenient experience, since the road is pretty narrow and there is hardly space to fit two cars side by side on its main part. In addition, the traffic is heavy during summer period, especially in July and August. Tourists should be aware that there is no gas stations between Porto Katsiki beach and Lefkada Town, so fill up before you go to the beach, just in case. Don’t forget that the beach has a lot of stairs to walk down and climb up to the parking lot, which many visitors see as the main drawback of this beach. You can also reach the beach by taxi-boats from the villages of Nidri and Vassiliki.
