About Vassiliki - presentation, information, photos and recommendations
Situated on a wide bay on the South coast of Lefkas, Vassiliki is the second largest holiday resort on the Island. Vassiliki Bay faces South towards Keffalonia, which can be seen in the distance. Vassiliki is 40 km from Lefkas Town (about 40 minutes by car), and 60 km from Preveza Airport (about 1 hour by car).
The village of Vassiliki itself is on the Eastern side of Vassiliki Bay - the Western side of the bay is called Ponti. There is a coast road between Vassiliki and Ponti, and the walk is easy.
Vassiliki is fairly quiet at the start and end of the summer season, but really comes to life in July and August when it is recognised as one of the windsurfing capitals of Europe. The bay is wide and sheltered, and is noted for it's afternoon wind known as 'Eric'. On a good day, the sight of hundreds of windsurfers speeding across the water is spectacular.
The village of Vassiliki is not large, and still retains a lot of it's 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.
Vassiliki 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.
There are some pleasant walks in the area, which is fairly flat, and this also makes it a good place for cycling. But Vassiliki is best known for it's watersports - especially windsurfing and catamaran - and this is the place to learn. Best to reserve your lessons and equipment in advance.
