Photographing Lefkada

Want to visit a Greek island but can’t decide which one? Corfu, Rhodes, Zante, Crete, even Santorini, yes they’re beautiful and would surely result in a great holiday, but aren’t they just a little bit obvious and overdone? Why not try the lesser known island of Lefkada? Connected to the mainland via a narrow causeway, Lefkada captures the essence of Greece in a small and easy to explore package, and despite becoming more popular in recent years it remains largely untouched by tourism.

The island is brimming with untapped photographic potential: breathtaking waterfalls, charming coastal villages, golden sand beaches with tropical turquoise shorelines, lush green and olive tree-clad mountains, historic castles, a resplendent church towering high above the island with 360 degree views, and that’s just for starters! What’s more its compact size means photography fans can realistically capture sunrise and sunset in the same day from opposite ends of the island! Plus Athens, Meganissi, Kefalonia and Ithaca are all within easy reach. What’s not to love?
