I am probably going to get a lot of people angry by writing this, but the beach is not very convenient for sunbathing. The reason is it is extremely stony and if you are not equipped with proper shoes, walking through the stones is not...More

Porto Katsiki is known worldwide, and rightfully so. Although I am greek I had never seen this colour on a beach before. Those waters are something else. You can approach the beach either by land or by a boat. If you choose to take the...More

We visited this beach during October and the feeling was as a private beach. Water was still quite warm and we discovered some caves as well. Recommend.

The view, the water, the beach itself are very beautiful, but I thnik that it was turned into something very commercial by the ones seeking profit and it ruins the beauty of the area.

Lefkada and its beaches are amazing! And Porto Katsiki is one of these places. But the best thing is the view before arriving at the beach. This blue color is incredible! But the beach is full of people and this is normal as it is...More

One of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen! Clear blue and turquoise waters and rocky sand. Costs €5 to park (worth it but not justified)

This is an incredible beach and a "must see" but it's not without it's drawbacks. It's quite a trawl to get there and access is down quite a few steps. It's mainly stone and can be quite an effort to get into the sea!!!! On...More

This was our first stop on a Five Island Cruise. The water is crystal clear and because of this it’s very popular for small cruise ships, so can be very crowded. The beach is pebbled, so not good to sunbathe on a towel. The beach...More

You can bring your dog, there is a dog today here, no one made it a problem. As far as I know and from what I’ve asked, there are no dog restrictions in Greece, at least on the beaches I’ve been.

It is a public beach and therefore you can go whenever and as long as you please. I guess there won't be any food and drink delivery service yet, but you may go there whenever you want
