Lefkada is a fertile, mountainous island, in between Corfu and Cefalonia, covered with olive groves, vineyards and small forests.
Its eastern coast slopes gently down the sea, dotted with 24 small satellite islands, including the tranquil Meganisi, with its turquoise bays; Kalamos, where forests of pine and cypress go right down to the sea; and the famous, Onassis-owned, island of Skorpios.
The town of Lefkada is built on a natural harbour with distinctive multicoloured wooden houses, a 13th century castle and 18th century churches. Small villages and white sanded beaches set the scene, among which Vasiliki, - considered among Europes best locations for windsurfing. Lefkada also hosts the World championship of Formula 3 speedboats.
