Situated on a wide bay on the South coast of Lefkas, Vasiliki is the second largest holiday resort on the Island. The village of Vasiliki itself is on the Eastern side of the bay - the Western side of the bay is called Ponti.

Vasiliki is fairly quiet at the start and end of the summer season, but really comes to life in July and August when it is recognized as one of the windsurfing capitals of Europe. The bay is wide and sheltered, and is noted for itΆΆs afternoon wind known as Eric. On a good day, the sight of hundreds of windsurfers speeding across the water is spectacular.

Beaches - The beach is mainly pebble with some shingle, and is gently shelving. From the village you can also walk southwards along the coastal path to the beach of Agiofili. This beach can also be reached by taxi boat during the summer season.

Harbour - The village of Vasiliki is not large, and still retains a lot of its older buildings. There is a very pleasant harbour front area with pavement cafes, restaurants and ice cream shops. The harbour is a popular stopping off point for yachts and flotillas, and is also a boarding point for the ferry to Kefalonia and Ithaka in the main summer season.

Services - There are several bars, tavernas and restaurants, and one disco. There are no banks, but there is an ATM and money can easily be exchanged at the local travel agencies. Other facilities in the village include a Police Station, Medical Centre, Post Office, Bakery and Petrol Station. There is a public bus service to Lefkada Town, which varies in frequency throughout the year. There are almost no buses on a Sunday.

Activities and Sports - There are some pleasant walks in the area, which is fairly flat, and this also makes it a good place for cycling. But Vasiliki is best known for its watersports - especially windsurfing and catamaran - and this is the place to learn. It is best to reserve your lessons and equipment in advance.
