Holidays in

A peaceful Greek fishing village

In the heart of the Ionian Sea, the coastal village of Ligia is a beach-lover’s paradise. With aquamarine waters lapping onto a pebbled beach, Ligia holidays are ideal for relaxing with a book and escaping the outside world. Located on Lefkada island’s northeastern coast, Ligia is home to a smattering of quaint cafés, tavernas and bakeries, so you can enjoy a strong Greek coffee while peering out across the fishing port dotted with colourful boats.

The village’s slow pace of life and shallow, tranquil waters make it a great base for families looking for a relaxing beach break, and it’s close to the amenities in Lefkada Town, too – just 6 kilometres away you’ll find lively nightlife and shops aplenty. Holidays to Ligia have grown in popularity over the past few years, meaning that in the summer months the village is quite lively yet it still maintains its picturesque charm.

Your Ligia questions, answered

Ligia has a clean, pebble beach, but there are several Caribbean-worthy, white-sand beaches just a short drive away, including Agios Ioannis and Milos.

It remains warm and sunny throughout the year, with temperatures in the mid-30s in August. The island’s breezy north is an ideal spot for windsurfing.

Taxis run regularly from Lefkada Town to Ligia and the rest of the island. It’s also worth renting a hire car, so you are free to explore.

Best things to do in Ligia

Cook like a Greek

Go on a cookery course to learn how to make delicious Greek cuisine. You’ll find out about local produce and the regional cooking style, then have a go at making your own dish.

Catch your dinner

If you’re looking for a fun family activity – or you’re already experienced with a rod – a fishing trip organised at the marina is a great way to spend the day.

Ride the waves

The north of Lefkada, a short drive away, is known for its strong winds and surfing-friendly beaches. Rent windsurfing and kite-surfing boards and hit the surf.
