The Greek Islands are home to many stunning and virgin beaches. This is one of the reasons why we keep going back to the islands every summer, year in and year out. Yes, we are Greek Island fans =)
In Lefkada, Porto Katsiki is the must-not-to-be-missed beach. This idyllic postcard perfect beach is the face of Lefkada tourism, modelling as cover on its many island promotional materials.

Porto Katsiki also reminds me of other postcard picture-perfect beaches I have visited in Greece, such as the Navagio/Shipwreck Beach in Zakynthos and the Myrtos Beach in Kefalonia. Breathtaking beaches are very much the norm in the Greek Islands.
This is our route from Nydri, our holiday base to Porto Katsiki. The short cut route near Vasiliki (which is a narrow and unpaved road as shown on the map) was closed so we had to drive fur...
