Holiday Villas in Nikiana

Nikiana is a small, laidback resort set on the eastern coast between the livelier towns of Nidri and Lefkas Town. A Nikiana villa holiday is a relaxing one, ideal for exploring beaches and tavernas. Overlooking the mainland, the views from the marina restaurants are wonderful – the perfect spot for an evening cocktail. There is a small beach next to the marina, and a second beach located back up the coast towards Lefkas Town. With its ideal location and easy connections via land or sea, Nikiana offers a great base to explore the eastern coast of Lefkada.

Exploring Nikiana on Villa Holidays

Within Nikiana there are a couple of mini markets where you can pick up daily essentials. For larger shops, the supermarkets are located on the edge of Lefkas Town. If you’re looking for some souvenirs, take a wander down through Lefkas Town and pick up a gift or two.

Overlooking the marina you’ll find a selection of traditional tavernas, where you can enjoy a relaxed meal while admiring the boats bobbing in the water. Further along the main street of Nikiana are a few more restaurants and bakeries, as well as some takeaway options you can order to your villa. For a greater choice, head to either Lefkas Town or Nidri.

Nikiana is home to a small sand and shingle beach located next to the marina. The atmosphere is relaxed where you can simply lay down your beach towel and catch some sun. The waters are calm and clear, and you enjoy views of the mainland in the distance. Further along the coast you’ll find Episkopos Beach, a small pebbly stretch with a beach hut for drinks plus sunbeds available to rent. There are also a couple of private beach bars along this stretch of coast.

From Nikiana you can rent a boat without a license, ideal if you want to spend an afternoon at sea. The nearby resort of Nidri has a larger port when you can join daily cruises to Meganisi or Ithaca. Be sure to visit the picturesque Nidri Waterfalls too! Head north to explore the bustling Lefkas Town, with a lively nightlife and great cocktail bars. Or, drive south to discover the towns of Sivota and Vasiliki, both well worth a visit.
