When it comes to sport activities Lefkas is one of the hottest destinations throughout Greece if not Europe. Because of its unique coastline and geographical position the island’s coasts are often ravaged by strong winds. As a result many beaches including Vassiliki and Agios Ioannis become meeting points for wind and kite surfers from all over the world. Vassiliki’s distinct wind conditions offer a flat sea with strong winds ideal for achieving great velocities while the fearsome wave conditions in Agios Ioannis beach offer more dramatic experiences. There is also a water sport centre situated in Nydri covering all sorts of sea sports for all ages. The island has its own diving centres which meet all standards of safety, ideal for the lovers of the deep. Finally there are boats that put off from Nydri in the morning and sail around the Island during the day. This is a nice way to explore the island’s coastline rested and apace.
