Porto Katsiki on the Ioanian Sea island ofLefkadais one of the most famous beaches inGreeceandEuropein general. Translation to English means “Port of the Goat”, because before only a goat could reach this area.

A very famous and photogenic beach, it is one of the best tourists attractions the world can offer, it is at the bottom of an arc of pale cliff that seem to have the clean lines of something designed by an architect rather than a natural wonder. It rises out of the water like a wedge, narrow at the center of the bay where there are only a few stairs to the sand, and then towering upwards at either end. As well as the white lines of the cliffs, the water is bright, bright blue and the cliffs have grassy topped fringes. source (wikipedia)

Porto Katsiki has parking lots and canteens, but you will not find anywhere to stay. Some people camp on the beach, but free camping is prohibited. There is a stairwell down to the actual beach from the cliff parking but the beach in general is well organized.

Porto Katsiki, the best known beach, is today considered one of the most outstanding in the whole of Europe. This is a beach of exceptional beauty, famed the world over.

This unique landscape is so spectacular that it will be inscribed forever in the memory of whoever visits this beach, whether he approaches it from the land or by boat from the sea.

The last 5km of the road are not wide enough and especially in August you may experience difficulties visiting Porto Katsiki at noon. In order to avoid this situation, you can go early in the morning (before 10:00) or at the afternoon (after 18:00). You may also visit Porto Katsiki with the cruise boats fromNydriorVasiliki.
