How to Get to Porto Katsiki Beach
Lefkada is one of the Ionian islands, which means that it is located on the western side of Greece. Lefkada is very close to the mainland and it is actually connected to it through a fifty meter long drawbridge. This means that when you arrive in the Athens airport, your best bet is to rent a car and drive to the island yourself. You can also take a bus. However, the easiest way is to get here by driving. If you are located elsewhere in Greece, you can also consider taking a ferry. If you want to take a regional flight, you can also fly into Aktion National Airport, which is the closest airport to the island. From there, you can rent a car or take a bus to your hotel and then find your way to the beach using the transportation on the island or by driving there yourself.
