How to reach the island
Lefkada is one of the Ionian islands situated above Patras on the north western coast of Greece. Originally separated from the mainland, it can now be reached over by land through a narrow road and a bridge. The distance between Lefkas & Athens is 385 kilometers. You can reach Lefkas by your own car, via the bridge that connects Lefkas with Etoloakarnania, without transporting your car with the car-ferry boat. Alternatively, if you do not want to drive, you can reach Lefkas by KTEL buses, that leave from the big Greek cities, Athens, Thessalonica, Patras, Giannena. From Athens, bus service is daily and the travel lasts 5 hours, while the bus- connection to Thessalonica is 2 times the week and the travel lasts 7 hours.
