Lygia Lefkas travel guide

Lygia is a sleepy fishing located on the east coast of Lefkas island and about five kilometres south of the main ports at Lefkas Town.

The wooded hills around Lygia are liberally dotted with villas and holiday apartments, especially along the coast road, but the village itself is basically the single main road lined with a few tavernas, shops and cafes.

Lygia is a very pretty seaside village with and picturesque houses built in the local stone and a charming port area with tavernas lining the quayside.

Life in Lygia centres on the harbour but this is a very quiet and relaxing place . Many visitors frequent the quayside fish tavernas where there are romantic views across to mainland Greece.

So close to Lefkas Town the village can soon fill up with holiday day trippers and the port is a favourite stop for yacht flotillas.

A small and narrow beach of pebble and sand beach lies to the north of the quay and a slightly longer beach backed by fields. Both beaches are well sheltered but have little natural shade.

A few small coves can be found to the south for those visitors who venture around the headland beyong the harbour but they are difficult to reach without a boat.

The area surrounding Lygia is very beautiful, with many fine hillside walks through the extensive woods and olive groves.
