One of Lefkas's most easily accessible islands is now Lefkada, following the completion of the new motorway network recently released. Do not forget that you do not need a boat to come to Lefkada, as the island is very close to Central Greece and a floating bridge of free flow passage connects it to it and constitutes the road link of the island.

How to get to Lefkada

The city of Lefkada is 380km from Athens, 420km from Thessaloniki and 100km from the port of Igoumenitsa.

From Athens you will come through Olympia Odos to the Rio-Antirrio Bridge and then cross the Ionian Road to Amfilochia. Then follow for 60 km the provincial road that crosses Aitoloakarnania and ends up on the island's floating bridge.

The northern Greeks and the Balkans, to come to Lefkada, can use Egnatia Odos to Ioannina and then enter the Ionian Road to Filippiada. From there follow the provincial road to Preveza (20km) and its underwater tunnel, which is 20km away from the floating bridge of Lefkada.

Buses connect daily Lefkada with Athens and Patra and twice a week with Thessaloniki. See more about KTEL Lefkada's routes on the company's website
