Porto Katsiki – Lefkada
Translating as ‘goat port’, Porto Katsiki is so-called as at one a time it could only be accessed by intrepid mountain goats! Around 35km from Lefkada town, it is accessed by a steep path down from the soaring white cliffs under which it sits. Boat trips can also be taken from nearby Nidri. As one of several blue flag beaches on the islands, it’s a perfect spot for swimming.
Arvanitia – Nafplio
Finally, it’s important to remember that Greece’s mainland has just as much coastline appeal as the outer islands. The Peloponnese peninsula at the southern end of the mainland marks the meeting of the Aegean, Ionian, and Mediterranean seas. It’s also littered with incredible historic sites – and of course, fantastic beaches!
Nafplio is possibly our favorite coastal resort in the region, with its compact and attractive Arvanita beach a great place to spend the day. Book ahead to dine in the renowned Blue Blanc restaurant which overlooks the beach.
