Lefkada is a beautiful island in the Ionian Sea, between Corfu and Cephalonia. The island is named after the white limestone rocks that emerge from the sea like some large stone walls. The northern part of the island is connected with mainland via a drawbridge and a tunnel which makes the access to the island a lot easier. The eastern coast of the island is much tamer with its relief gradually descending towards the sea. On the south and southeast side of the island there are deep bays and natural harbors that are very popular among the sailors. The western coast of the island consists of high limestone cliffs and beneath them are located the beautiful sandy beaches of Lefkada. The central part of the island is occupied by mountain peaks with altitudes reaching over 1000 m. And of course, Lefkada is known for some of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean and beyond.
