Family trip to Lefkada with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Porto Katsiki The paradise island of Lefkada located in the Ionian Sea is a great destination for a family vacation. Each of its towns offers its own unique entertainment that will appeal to any family member. So, in the town of Vasiliki, be sure to try windsurfing, beautiful museums are located in the capital of the island, and fans of sunbathing will love Agios Nikitas, as many beautiful beaches are concentrated here. In general, the island offers a great variety of beaches, and it's not so easy to choose one for ideal family recreation.
Lefkada is incredibly rich in natural attractions, and you should definitely bring your kids here. For example, to Nydri Waterfalls (Dimossari). When you find it, an incredibly beautiful sight appears before your eyes - the water falling into a blue lake framed by huge rocks. Swimming in the lake is a pleasure that should never be missed - the water is very nice and warm. A beautiful woodside road leading here will protect you from the summer heat and make the walk enjoyable.
Children may also be offered surfing. They have a chance to surf on the best spots on the island located in Vasiliki and Ai Yannis where windsurfing is most common. Well, when it comes to kitesurfing, then Mili beach in Agios Nikitas is the best choice. Another beautiful beach called Kathisma that is located near the above (by the way, one of the most picturesque places on the island), offers great paragliding opportunities. Such an extreme activity is sure to impress teenagers, while for smaller kids, it's still better just to watch how adults do it. Copyright

Agios Nikitas - one of the most beautiful villages on the island - attracts tourists from all over the world not only with its sights but also with the fact that walking around it is a pure pleasure. A picturesque bay buried in greenery is a kind of the village's "calling card", therefore it is worth taking a walk along it. On the already mentioned Mili beach, besides practicing kitesurfing, one can also swim, sunbathe and enjoy the picturesque views - the sky-blue sea and clean sand contribute to making the place ideal for a family pastime.
Young travelers would be interested in learning a lot of new facts about the history of the island - it's worth taking kids on a tour of the Olive Museum "Fabbrica", which tells about Lefkada's traditional craft - olive oil production. Here you can go through every stage of production, including the final one - oil tasting. Not far from the museum is the picturesque Kerasia Waterfall where you should take the kids so that they can enjoy stunning views. Along the west coast of the island, you can find the Venetian Olive Grove. A walk in the frame of centenary olive trees will be long be remembered by each family member.
Lefkada will appeal to fans of gastronomic tourism, because there are attractive restaurants and cafes in every city of the island. The most popular and visited places are located in the … Open
As for museums, the Folklore Museum located in Karya is of special interest to children. This is a kind of attempt to recreate the traditions that reigned on the island some time ago - here you can see how ordinary people lived on the island for several centuries. The pastoral atmosphere prevailing here is more relaxing than ever. It's also worth mentioning several more museums in the island's capital. These include the Archaeological Museum of Lefkada (Αρχαιολογικό Μουσείο Λευκάδας) that has gathered interesting archaeological finds from all around Lefkada, as well as the Phonograph, Radio and Traditional Museum (Μουσείο original Φωνο) with its original antique exhibits. In the capital of the island, little tourists can let off steam in the playground called Παιδική Χαρά bringing an amazing experience.
However, they'll get equally strong impressions from visiting restaurants and cafes serving wonderful desserts. Thus, in the capital, it's recommended to check out To Loukoumadaki Cafe (serves the best Greek donuts "loukoumades") and Ciao Gelateria (where you can taste delicious ice cream), as well as One Red Dot with its delicious pies. In the town of Vasiliki, it is worth taking the kids to Jomil Cafe so that they appreciate its wonderful waffles. While in Nydri, one should never pass by Cafe di Paris serving fantastic waffles, Ikaros Cafe with amazingly delicious ice cream, and Yummy Yogurt cafe with tasty yogurts and ice cream.
