Car Rental Vasiliki Lefkada
Vasiliki is a popular windsurfing beach and village in the south of Lefkada in Apollonioi municipality. Vasiliki is great for family holidays, romantic holidays, or for a group of friends who want to have fun with watersports. Besides watersports and boat excursions, Vasiliki is also known for its surrounding beaches, monasteries, hiking trails, and wide accommodation options. The overall landscape of Vasiliki is composed of hills with dense vegetation and a unique natural bay coloured by the deep emerald sea. When you wander around the picturesque small port of Vasiliki and in the centre of the village, you will meet friendly locals and take photos of traditional houses built on the village’s paved alleys. You will also find plenty of shops, restaurants, tavernas, cafes, and a few bars for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a relaxing cocktail night.
Vasiliki doesn’t have such vibrant nightlife as other places in Lefkada, but it’s ideal for a typical Greek dinner by the port, accompanied by ouzo and shared with your friends and family. Some of the nicest tavernas along the seaside promenade to experience just this are Vagelaras, Old Fisherman’s Tavern, and Maistros Restaurant. And, apart from the village’s charm, Vasiliki's wide shingly beach to the west of the port gives a unique touch to Vasiliki’s atmosphere. Vasiliki Beach and Ponti Beach are both situated on Vasiliki’s bay and some parts of the beach offer sunbeds, umbrellas, showers, and beach bars. Ponti Beach is the surfers’ paradise, and many local windsurf and watersports centres offer lessons, equipment, and training for all levels. As you can see, Vasiliki has it all, and it’s also a convenient area to take your car and drive to Lefkada’s renowned beaches, Cape Doukato, and mountainous villages.
Vasiliki Car Rentals
When you arrive in Vasiliki by car, you will first see its beautiful port and then its wide beach with eye-catching waters. After leaving your stuff at your hotel or apartment, a refreshing swim and sunbathing on Vasiliki Beach is a great thing to do to unwind from your trip. If you want to drink your coffee or pint while relaxing on a lounger, the Loop Beach bar offers a wide selection of drinks and snacks. A cold freddo espresso is probably what you need in the morning! From Vasiliki port, you can also embark on small taxi boats that will take you to wonderful Agiofili and Orfanogianni beaches. You can also drive to Agiofili Beach or Ammoussa Beach, which are only a 15-minute drive away. Agiofili Beach is a small pebble beach with excellent crystal-clear waters for swimming or snorkelling. Ammoussa Beach is another quiet pebble beach with sunbeds, umbrellas, a beach bar and tavern, and free parking. It is not as crowded as Agiofili, and the road to get there is an adventure, with scenic spots to admire panoramic views.
If you’re looking for other unique spots for views of Vasiliki Bay, Vasiliki Observation Deck is a fantastic viewpoint on the west side of Vasiliki. From there, you can continue to Cape Doukato, passing the Monastery of Saint Nicholas of Ira. This old 17th-century monastery is a great place to meditate, stroll around its gardens, and take a guided tour of the monastery’s interior by the nuns. Consider buying some homemade local products before leaving. After you visit the monastery, drive to the southernmost point of Cape Doukato for infinite sea views and take scenic photos of the lighthouse with the backdrop of the deep Ionian Sea.
