10 Must-See Greek Beaches


6. Porto Katsiki

Perhaps one of the most breathtaking beaches anywhere on the planet, Lefkada’s Porto Katsiki is unlike any other place on Earth. With a near-constant breeze and mild weather, it’s the steep rocks, jutting cliffs and gentle white sand that make this place stand out. There are canteens and parking lots. Camping is typically prohibited and there’s no lodging. You will have to book a room in one of the best hotels on Lefkada or an apartment in one of the nearest villages such as Athani village.

Porto Katsiki offers a lot of of space for laying under the sun as well as for numerous water and beach activities such as sailing, swimming, and surfing. However, the beach is not the best place for snorkeling. The best time to visit Porto Katsiki, especially if you want to avoid crowds on the beach and on the roads, is during late May or early June.
