Undoubtedly, this beach is one of the most picturesque ones in Lefkada. Upon leaving the parking lot, which costs 7 Euro, you will come across a plethora of large stones. However, as you venture further south, you will be rewarded with a stunningly expansive sandy beach, complete with sizable waves. Regrettably, I cannot bestow a 5-star rating due to the less-than-ideal accessibility. The narrow road took us an entire hour to traverse the 15km distance. Additionally, the biggest issue was the tendency for individuals to attempt to avoid the parking fee, resulting in cars being left on the road and making it quite challenging to reach the beach. Nevertheless, I would certainly return to witness its beauty once more.

The beach was enjoyable, although it was smaller when compared to Porto Katisiki and Egremni. However, it had a unique feature with large rocks located in the center of the beach. We had a great time and spent the day there. We chose not to pay for parking due to the poor road conditions, and left our car by the road. Some people reported paying 7 euros, while others mentioned 10 euros. Regardless, it is definitely worth checking out and shouldn't be missed.

The road leading to the bar and parking is quite narrow and steep. The first section of the beach is situated right beneath the bar and is enclosed by large rocks and pebbles. The other part of the beach is quite long and wide, with small grains of sand. The sea is absolutely stunning and the beach is not too crowded. I would confidently say that this is the most gorgeous beach in Lefkada.

This beach is absolutely stunning, with crystal clear water and soft, fine pebbles. It's a must-visit for anyone looking for a serene and picturesque spot to relax and soak up the sun.

At the end of the road, there are a couple of parking spots that require payment, costing 7€ per day as of July 2022. These spots are conveniently located close to both the bar and the beach. If you're looking for a free option, the beach to the left is accessible after a short walk behind the cliffs, which is about 50-100 meters away. The small stones on the beach are almost like sand. It's important to note that neither the parking nor the bar accepts payment by card.
