Off the west coast of Greece in the Ionian Sea awaits Lefkada Island, connected to the mainland by a long causeway and floating bridge. Lefkada is a blissful holiday destination filled with seaside resorts, picturesque villages and a host of natural sights. Lefkada is famous for its long sandy beaches, the forested mountains and the several idyllic bays and little islands nearby. Among the most popular sights to visit on the island are the waterfalls of Nidri and the Monastery of Panagia Faneromeni, on a hill above the town.
