Photographer's Note

Lefkada is one of the Greek Ionian Islands located off the west coast of mainland Greece. It's a beautiful, fertile island with some superb beaches, an imposing mountainous interior and verdant valleys carpeted with vineyards, olive groves and cotton fields.
The island (also known as Lefkas and Leucade) is connected to the mainland by a 50-metre drawbridge that was built in the 1980s to replace the archaic chain-operated ferry originally introduced by the Emperor Augustus. In fact Lefkada was not an island at all until the 5th century BC when the inhabitants dug a channel to separate themselves from the mainland.
The island's best beaches are on the west coast where white cliffs plunge down to golden and white sand lapped by iridescent water that provides some of the best swimming in the Ionian Sea.

Explore inland and you'll find many scenic villages where you can dine in traditional tavernas, many of which offer the option of a clean, comfortable and incredibly cheap room for the night.
