An amazing tailor-made private boat tour to Egremni and Porto Katsiki took place last week.

It was a great experience in Lefkada we had together with a really wonderful family of 4, from the U.S. 

We managed to visit all the famous and infamous beaches of the south and the west coast of Lefkada, from Porto Katsiki and Egremni to Meganisi and Skorpios island.

Among everything we managed to go swimming on the blue waters, to find cliffs for rock jumping, spots snorkeling, and we had a wine tasting and tapas in a secret and remote beach.

We ended up knowing each other better with some in-depth conversations of personal and social aspects!

A beach tour in Lefkada: visit Kathisma beach

Kathisma Beach Lefkada, Lefkada Tours to Beaches: visit Kathisma beach - Tripatricks

Kathisma beach in Lefkada is probably the most cosmopolitan and busiest beach in the island.

The main reason for this is that it is located only 15km southwest of Lefkada town on the west coast of the island.

It is a huge beach with a lot of capacity and beach bars, restaurants and activities to do. 

Kathisma is s a long beach of almost 4km length with many beach bars and restaurants for chilling or partying. Enjoy the sunset here with your company having dinner, a drink, or a cocktail.

Due to the big length of the beach, there are also isolated areas for those who want to avoid big crowds.

Kathisma beach is also located very close to Agios Nikitas village, so visiting here can be also combined with some lunch dinner or just visiting the area. 

You can also find here plenty of rooms and hotels to rent in Kathisma beach, with some of them being in remote areas on the hill, with an extremely nice view!

Lefkadian OLIVE OIL. Everyone knows that Greek olive oil is the best in the world.

The quality of the soil, weather conditions and centuries of cultivating tradition help to create legendary quality and taste. Together with vineyards olive trees occupy the huge part of the island and used for importing as well.

Lefkada is a home of 2 types of olives- Asprolia (Lefkolia) -white type and Mavrolia- black type.

We recommend to all you guys to visit a museum of olives "Fabbrica" in Syvros village- here Greek secrets of olives and olive oil are revealed for you.

The local wine

Lefkadian WINE. There's a historical fact, that the wine from Lefkada was considered to be the best in the world by a Roman doctor Apollodorus in 3rd century BC.

The local vineyards as the history passed had occupied the huge part of the island and the wine was used for export as well.

There were ups(beginning of 20th century - when French vineyards were destroyed by phylloxera fly) and downs(end of 19th century when Lefkadian vineyards were devastated by peronospora) for the wine industry in Lefkada, but the 2nd WW had brought tragical consequences to wine producing- vineyards were abandoned and used for different purposes.

Now the wine industry gets more attention again, and many tourists are in love with local wine traditions. You may be interested to visit one of local Wine Festivals- in Pigadisani near Karya village, in Apolpena and Fryas.

In all tavernas, you will also find Lefkadian wine and you can visit our local wineries to buy some wine for your friends or family as a present.

According to the local authorities, Egremni beach is set to open again for the public after the catastrophic consequences since the 2015 earthquake.

Most possible time to happen is at the end of July 2020, where the works taking place already to restore the stairs and the footpath, are over. 

These are some brilliant news for all tourists visiting Lefkada this year. 

Now the access will be restored but just in case it is delayed we still have the solution, by booking a tailor-made boat tour to the magnificent Egremni beach, in Lefkada.

Egremni beach is the best beach in the Mediterranean, a multi-awarded and prominent beach of Lefkada re-opens again this July 2020 for the Public.

I am a great fan of this beach ever since I first visited at the age of 6 years old with my parents and some family friends.

Since then I visited Egremni every year and had the privilege to swim in those magic blue and turquoise waters.

It has a real charm this place, it is wild, remote with thick vegetation on the footpath, bright white cliffs and also different shades of blue waters that will blow so many colors to your eyes.

Plan your holiday to Lefkada 2019 find visit stunning beaches in the Mediterranean Sea - TripatricksBefore the last earthquake, Egremni beach was quite popular, but because of its remote location in the island and also the too many stairs, almost 300, many people didn't choose here, as they preferred other wonderful beaches of Lefkada like Porto Katsiki, Aigialos, Kalamitsi, Kathisma, etc with easier access.

In the video below, you can see how this looks like today. The video is taken on the 26th of June 2019, in one of our boat tours.

So what a better day at a remote beach, the best in the Mediterranean with the greatest waters, a huge coastline and a few people having fun at the beach bar!
