Despite being Corfu’s second-largest town, Lefkimi still retains a wonderful off-the-beaten-path feel. Lefkimi holidays have a laid-back atmosphere and give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in Corfiot culture. The town, all narrow streets lined with merchants’ mansions and Italianate churches, has an almost Venetian air to it – not least as it’s split in half by a small river. Fishermen use the river as a waterway to enter and exit the sea, so it’s no surprise that the restaurants in Lefkimi serve some of the freshest, most tasty food on the island.
When you’re done exploring, you can head to one of two nearby beaches, which tend to be popular with families. The beaches are uncrowded affairs, with a scattering of umbrellas and beach bars, so you’ll be able to truly relax under the sun while gazing out across the horizon towards the Greek mainland. For a touch of slow-paced Corfu, holidays to Lefkimi are just the ticket.
Rent a boat
There’s so much to explore offshore – catch a ride with a fisherman or rent your own boat and explore the southeast corner of Corfu.
Visit some churches
There are several beautiful churches that are worth visiting during your time in Lefkimi. Two of the best are Agioi Theodoroi and Agios Arsenios.
Stroll along the river
Grab the family and take a wander along the riverside, then watch in awe as the local fishermen pass by with boatloads of slippery catch.
