Lefkada is one of the easiest accessible islands of Greece, as you don’t need boat or air tickets, because it is connected to Aetolia-Acarnania (and the rest part of Greece) through a waterborne bridge. So you just have to take your car and start your trip to Lefkada whichever time of the day you prefer! As an alternative, you could take the bus (KTEL) that offers many different routes every day from and to Athens, Thessaloniki, Igoumenitsa and Aktio. Moreover, you can also reach Aktio by airplane, as the airport of Aktio offers different routes within Greece but also abroad several times a week. Finally, among the Ionian islands, Lefkada has a great deal of ship routes daily back and forth to Meganisi, to Kefalonia and to Ithaka.
From the moment that you arrive to the island by the waterborne bridge, you reach the capital of Lefkada. After crossing the central street (Ogdois Merarhias) you have to follow the street that leads to the village Aghios Nikitas and then follow the signs that lead to the picturesque village Exanthia and to Exanthia villas!
