Access to Lefkada

Lefkada is one of the Greek Ionian Islands located off the west coast of mainland Greece. The island (also known as Lefkas and Leucade) is connected to the mainland by a 50 meter drawbridge that was built in the 1980s to replace the archaic chain-operated ferry originally introduced by the Emperor Augustus.

In fact Lefkada was not an island at all until the 5th century BC when the inhabitants dug a channel to separate themselves from the mainland.

PLANE - FERRY & BOATSBUSCARUSEFUL INFORMATIONS

ACCESS BY PLANE

The closest airport to Lefkada Island is located in Préveza – Aktion National Airport (The international airport code is PVK).

The airport actually stands on and takes its name from the sandy peninsula of Aktios. This is where the Battle of Actium was fought in 31 BC, when the fleet of Octavian decisively defeated that of Antony and Cleopatra.

Anyone wishing to stay in Préveza is advised to take the Olympic minibus or a taxi from the airport terminal.  Facilities at Préveza are limited and the airport can get congested on Sundays when most of the UK charter flights operate. There are a couple of taverns close by the terminal building which provide welcome relief if you are waiting to check in
