Lefkada has an abundant storage of underground water, which is one of the principal reasons why a major part of the island is lush with greenery. The high mountains that abound in Lefkada are the sources for many waterfalls that cascade through the mountainous terrain and finally end up into the sea.
One such gorgeous cascading waterfall is the Dimossari waterfall that can be found on the outskirts of Nydri. Its name is derived from the word “Dimos”, the ancient state where numerous watermills were found.
During the summer season, when the temperature gets really hot, tourists come to the Dimosari Waterfalls to relieve themselves from the sweltering heat and many of them can be seen swimming in the crystal clear waters of the lakes, found among the rocky contours.
The trail on foot to the waters along the silhouette of the pine trees is splendid. Very near to the Dimossari Waterfalls is the seaside village of Nydri. Ideally a visit to the Dimossari waterfalls should coincide with a visit to this picturesque Lefkada village which offers many quality hotels, restaurants and tavernas all geared up to pamper the discerning traveler
