Holidays to the Greek island of Lefkas rack up style points with postcard-perfect sea views and pine tree-scented surroundings.

The laidback island

An Ionian island floating off mainland Greece's west coast, Lefkas whisks you away from the hustle and bustle – and into a slow-paced way of life. One for the beach lovers, it's full of wow-worthy scenery and standout coastal views.

Sailboat stops

If you're keen to get out on the big blue, Nidri should be top of your list. Whether you want decent fishing or calm-water cruising, this popular tourist town has got you sorted. Meanwhile, the beaches of Mylos and Kathisma are untouched havens – ideal spots to relax and unwind.

Historical heavyweight

A landmark spot from the 14th century, the Venetian Fortress of Agia Mavra's a good shout for a daytrip. Even better, it's just outside the island's capital of Lefkada. Once you've checked out this historical site, hop in your car and reach a range of top-notch restaurants and bars in only five minutes – perfect if you fancy a refuel after sightseeing.

Walk this way

With so many scenic walking spots in Lefkas, it's hard to squeeze them all into one trip. The Nidri and Dimosari waterfalls are jaw-droppers, so be sure to snap a few pics. Skaron Forest's also a great place to take shots of the landscape – head there in the morning to avoid the midday sun.
