Holidays to Nidri bring you to a lively little town with good-time bars and authentic Greek tavernas. There’s cycling in the nearby Geni peninsula, plus Lefkas Town is only 25 minutes’ drive away.
A fun town
Nidri is a lively little town on the east coast of Lefkas island. Its 2 roads run parallel with each other – there’s the bustling main street and the long harbour road. Along the water you’ll find authentic Greek tavernas and international cuisine, while the main street is heaving with cheery bars and late-night clubs. Just north of Nidri there’s a road bridge to the Greek mainland, plus there’s a little cluster of islands just off the coast to explore.
Nidri boasts a long stretch of pebbly shoreline – the water is shallow and blue, plus there are little tavernas all along the tree-lined promenade. You can also rent jet-skis and canoes from the watersports centre. From the shore you can see the islands that dot the horizon. The biggest, Meganissi, has secluded little coves that are great for snorkelling. A 20-minute walk north takes you to the pebbly Perigali Beach – a quiet place with sunloungers and umbrellas.
The island’s capital
It’s an easy 7-kilometre bike ride along a leafy coastal path to the Geni peninsula. Right in the middle of this lush green reserve is the quaint Agia Kyriaki chapel. The capital, Lefkas, is less than half-an-hour’s drive away, and its huge harbour is lined with elegant seafood restaurants. You can also cross over to the mainland and be in ancient Nicopolis in an hour. Here you can tour the ruins of this 1st-century Roman town.
