Getting to Lefkas
Where is Lefkas? Also called Lefkada, Lefkas is one of the Ionian group that lies off the west coast of Greece.
It may not have its own airport but there is one on the mainland at nearby Preveza and a bridge link to the island that makes for a quick and easy journey by road.
Ferry links to Lefkada are a little more complicated, but not much. It lies on the main ferry routes from Italy to Greece but, with the mainland port of Igoumenitsa very close, the ferries don't bother to stop here.
Fortunately, there are a few connecting ferries from Igoumenitsa to Lefkas but the overland road journey to the island is only about two hours anyway.
Roads on Lefkas are good and the main east coast beach resorts are well served by bus companies but private transport is needed to explore the more rugged west coast.
