Lefkada is a popular Greek island known for its beaches, particularly Porto Katsiki and Egremni. However, there is a beach near Lefkada you don’t want to miss, and that is Agios Nikolaos, a breathtaking island that consists of a single beach.
The stunning “island of Sikelianos” or Agios Nikolaos is, in its entirety, one beach. The thin strip of golden stand extends out into the pristine waters of the Ionian Sea, making Agios Nikolaos a unique location.
The island presents a narrow strip of sand with turquoise waters lapping the shores on each side of the beach.
The only structure you will find on Agios Nikolaos is a chapel of the same name. Every first Sunday of the month after May 10th, the church celebrates the passage of the Holy Trinity of Agios Nikolaos from Lefkada in 1087.
Many people flock to Lefakada each year to participate in various water sports. Wouldn’t it be a great detour to check out Agios Nikolaos and chill out at the beach?
