About Agios Nikitas - presentation, information, photos and recommendations
This beautiful village is situated on the North West coast of Lefkas (see map), 12 km from Lefkas Town. It is the only village at sea level along the West Coast, because the coastline is so rugged and steep.
Aghios Nikitas village consists of one main street down to the sea. There are many restaurants, tavernas, minimarkets and souvenir shops along the main street. There is some parking at the top of the street, but most of the street is pedestrian only. Parking can be a bit of a nightmare and if you can find a place in one of the car parks it is worth paying The village is very busy during July and August, but can be very quiet outside of the main season.
The surrounding area is beautiful, with steep hills and valleys covered in olive and pine trees leading down to beautiful beaches and crystal clear sea water. After a storm the white limestone sand is washed up into the sea, turning the water into striking patterned shades of light and dark blue - a photographer's dream.
The village is close to several superb beaches. It has it's own small village beach. To the North is Pefkoulia Beach (also known as Agios Nikitas Beach), which can be easily reached along the main road to Lefkas Town. Here you will find two tavernas and a few simple rooms for rent. To the South of the village is Milos Beach, named after the ruined mill on the headland overlooking it. There are two ways to reach it. The difficult way is to follow the path over the headland from the village. The path starts behind the Milos Taverna on the main street, and takes about 20 minutes. It can be very rough and even dangerous in places, so be careful! The easy way, in the middle of the summer, is to take the taxi boat from the village beach. The price is a couple of Euros each way. The beach itself is one of the best on the Island, is quiet for most of the summer, and clothing restrictions are 'relaxed'.
