Twelve kilometers form the capital of the prefecture, adjoining the
sea, looms the traditional fishing village of Agios Nikitas. Traditional houses,
amphitheatrically arranged in the verdant landscape around the sea, give their
own gift to the passage of time. Very quiet with a view to the endless azure of
the Ionian Sea and the misty
tops of the mountains of Epirus,
it attracts the visitor like a magnet, calling him to live in the pure nostalgia
The crystal clear waters at the beaches from Langada to the village,
the fresh fish and also the traditional hospitality of the people of Lefkada,
will transport you to a different way of life and will fascinate you. Further
west of the settlement is the unspoiled sandy beach of Mylos, which is sure to
win the heart of even the most demanding visitor.
