Lefkada is the fourth largest island in the Ionian Sea and the smallest prefecture of Greece. It lies between the islands of Corfu and Kefalonia and has a population of 23,000 inhabitants.
It boasts beautiful seaside hamlets and picturesque mountain villages. A floating bridge connects it to the mainland, so year round access is easy.
The island was named after the Lefkata cape, located at the southernmost point of the island. Lefkada is approximately 5 hours drive from Athens and approximately 5 hours from Thessaloniki.
